A 1992 study found that 29 percent of men (and 9 percent of women) masturbated at least once a week.In 2014, 49 percent of men (and 32 percent of women) confessed to doing it at least once in the previous six days.A new book by sociologist Mark Regnerus blames this declining rate on how easy it is for men to get off.Regnerus calls it “cheap sex,” an economic term meant to describe sex that has very little cost in terms of time or emotional investment, giving it little value.Regnerus backs this theory up with a quote from social psychologists Roy Baumeister and Kathleen Vohs, who study this phenomenon.“Nowadays young men can skip the wearying detour of getting education and career prospects to qualify for sex,” they write. This is today’s version of the opiate of the (male) masses.” Regnerus argues that while women have maintained their role as sexual gatekeepers, men control the marriage market.Regnerus blames cheap sex for the decreasing education and employment rates among men as greater numbers of women get college degrees and enter the labor force.Six percent more women than men in the 25-34 age group have a bachelor’s degree.
