We're Eating Burritos More Often Than We're Having Sex — And There's Proof

Think about the last time you had sex. Now, think about the last time you ate a burrito.

According to new research, chances are, you've probably had a burrito more recently than you've gotten laid.

It's sad. But it's also true.

Acording to data from Moe's Southwest Grill, Millennials chow down on burritos at least once a week.

Over 1,000 people between the ages of 13 and 50 participated in this survey. The results showed that 72 percent of people between the ages of 18 and 24 (Millennials) ate two to three burritos per week on average.

If this sounds like you, did you ever think about the fact that you could be consuming 72 to 144 burritos A YEAR?

Don't think you're exempt from this eye-opening statistic, even if you're watching your weight. Forty-three percent of participants admitted that they would totally eat a burrito daily if calories and food-shaming didn't exist.

What? Are you saying you wouldn't judge (or be jealous of) someone who eats one burrito a day?

Now, let's compare that alarming data to a recent study about Millennials' sex lives, as compared to the sex lives of older generations.

According to new research published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, 15 percent of 20 to 24-year-olds reported that they had no new sexual partners after turning 18.

Meanwhile, only 6 percent of Gen-X-ers reported the same when they were that age.

Researchers speculated that because we're so wrapped up in our technology and social media, we may simply be too busy for sex.

Yeah… and we're obviously too busy eating burritos.

I'm waiting for a study to reveal how many times Millennials have sex per week in 2016, but I do know for a fact that buying a burrito can be way easier than having sex… especially if you're single. Most of the time, a burrito is way more satisfying.

Moe's study proves that if you're faced with the opportunity to eat a burrito or have sex, we can bet you'll choose the burrito nine times out of 10.
