Many sexually active teenagers have avoided sex in the past year because of such problems.

New Delhi: A latest study has revealed that the sex life of young people is not much fun. According to the UK's third annual National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal-3) which asked around 2000 men and women between the age of 16 to 21 about their views on sex revealed astonishing results.

About 9 percent of the male sample size and 13 percent of the female sample size stated distressing sexual problems that are generally associated with older people. The problems with males were reaching climax too quickly, while the females complained of never climaxing.    

However, both the genders of the sample size felt the lack of enjoyment of sex during intercourse. Many sexually active teenagers have avoided sex in the past year because of one or more of these problems.

A few researchers also believe that these problems among the teens may be because of the 'practice' effect or in simpler terms these teens are sexually inexperienced. Some of the experts also believe that there is too much importance given on sex education in schools but no emphasis is placed on sexual health.

Experts also believe that there is lack of pleasure education in schools along with sex education which only concentrates on safe sex.

Young people want to talk about pleasure, non-penetrative alternatives to intercourse, and power relations in sexual relationships, but sex education in schools tends to neglect these topics. Therefore it is important that teens get to talk about and discuss sex in a rational way.
