Recent debates about dating and sex have been seriously lacking in data.
We’ve argued about hookup culture and whether it brought the death of monogamy and marriage, and about whether feminism and sexual liberation—giving women control over their reproductive health and sexual expression, while freeing them from the confines of a virgin ideal—could be considered the cause.
But we’ve never really looked hard at the demographics—which may provide a far better, more concrete answer.
Birger points to a relatively overlooked book, Too Many Women?
: The Sex Ratio Question, which was written by professors Marcia Guttentag and Paul Secord, and published in 1983.
Guttentag and Secord noticed there was an over-supply of young, single women when the Women's Liberation movement and the sexual revolution blossomed.
