Generation Kink statistics blog - Australia

From the hard working Baby Boomers to the creative Gen Z’s, there is fabulous sex happening across every generation. We wanted to know more about age and sexuality, so we pulled a few sexy statistics on exactly what each of the generations is loving in the bedroom.

In the name of science, sit back while we answer the age old question: what does each generation prefer when it comes to getting down?

Getting Down with Gen Z (Ages 18-24)

This generation are investing in their sex lives, coming in second place for sex toy page views despite being the smallest age range since adult Gen Z ranges from just 18-24.

Baby Boomer Bedrooms (Aged 55+)

Baby Boomers are known for being resourceful, relationship-oriented and hardworking. The most mature cohort, Boomers know themselves and what they like. This generation are the OG liberators, contributing significantly to normalising sex outside marriage. Some even call this generation the inventors of the one-night-stand.
