Dr Kate Cross of the University of St Andrews did the study which says young men have lost the spark for thrill-seeking, physical sports, and taking risks. As late as the 70s 48% of males were off the couch, today it's less than 28%. Worse still? Women are increasing their appetite for active, hard-charging zest and zeal.
‘The decline in the sex difference in thrill and adventure-seeking scores could reflect declines in average fitness levels, which might have reduced people’s interest in physically challenging activities,’ Cross says.
In plain-speak, young guys are shrinking from their role as males and spending a lot more time sitting in a chair shoving beer and chips down their gullets - and it's turning them into amorphous herds of limp-dicks.
