Generations can be defined as a group of people who are born in the same period of years or who live in the same place. Nowadays, generations can be classified into five groups. The Silent Generation or Traditionalists are those who are born on or before 1945. Baby Boomer is the classification for those who are born from 1946 to 1964. It is followed by Generation X, which people are born from 1965 to 1976. From 1977 to 1995, people who are born from this period are called Millenials or Gen Y. Lastly, Gen Z or Centennial is the classification for those who are born from 1996 to the current year. The study of these generations is essential to understand the different beliefs and perspectives that each generation shares. Some of the views and traditions of the Silent Generation may not be existing in the Centennial generation because of different factors. Understanding these changes explore the development of society and country in terms of the evolution of beliefs in these generations.
Answer and Explanation:
Out of all the generations, Millenials (Gen Y) or those who are born from 1977 to 1995 have the highest levels of masturbation or the stimulation of the genitals using hand or other products for pleasure. Studies suggest that people start to pleasure themselves at the age of 14 to 15. Although masturbation can be observed in all generations, 88% of the Gen Y population are said to be actively doing it, which is the most active among other generations. Other data includes that 91% of men masturbate while 78% of women pleasure themselves actively.
