People Who Start Having Sex Later In Life More Picky When Choosing Sexual Partners

“At what age did you first have sex?” That’s not a normal first date question. However, research shows that people who start having sex later in life are very picky. Especially when it comes to choosing a sexual partner. (And this, in a way, comes as a surprise. Because you would expect that those kinds of people would be more desperate to have sex with just about anyone).

The study, led by a psychologist, Paige Harden, used data from the Longitudinal Study on Adolescent Health to categorize 1659 pairs of people around ages 16 to 29 into a group of three, namely: Early (people younger than 15), On-time (people within the ages of 15 to 19), and Late (people above 19 years of age).

Should you delay sex?

Individuals who first experienced sex late into their lives were found to be more comfortable by themselves. They also feel secure, and less likely to want to shoulder the burdens of a romantic relationship. I mean, why upset a balanced ship, right? This translates to why they take longer to choose an ‘ideal’ sexual partner. [Read ‘ideal’ sexual partner as one they would be completely happy and satisfied to be having sex with.]

Humans adapt to situations better than any other being. And when a person becomes used to the idea of staying alone, he becomes less interested in even a remote form of relationship.

Further findings from the effects of having sex later in life

The study also unearthed an interesting link between the age when a person first experiences sex and their chances of attaining their educational goals and financial success. People who had sex later in their life were more likely to be successful in school and at their place of work. Logically, one could assume that this is possible because they were more focused and goal-oriented.

Their educational status is also another reason why they might be choosy as they would be more open to linking up with people who match their qualifications.

“So, how long until you are done with your Ph.D.?” This, too, is hardly a question you ask on a date. But don’t be surprised if he/she throws this question at you!
