Gen Z Are “Puriteens,” But Not For The Reasons You Think
Siose, a 24-year-old occupational therapist in New Zealand — who has slept with only two people, including his fiancée — blames his lack of interest in “sleeping around” on feelings of sexual inadequacy generated by porn, which he viewed from age 12. “It was about being insecure about my body,” he says. “I was like, ‘I don’t have [a pornstar dick], so I’m probably not going to satisfy whoever I hook up with.’”
Sometimes sexual discomfort is caused by early and distressing sexual encounters online. Few female digital natives make it through their teens without encountering unsolicited dick pics and videos; Katie and Kristen both named Omegle as a notorious example, a free chat website that became a popular activity at high school get-togethers. “We would all sit on there thinking we were going to talk to people, but then every three clicks you’d just see a guy wanking off,” Kristen said, and Katie confirmed that “definitely [at] slumber parties, everyone would go on Omegle and see a bunch of penises.”
