Millennials are a competitive bunch.

So much so that they would reportedly rather spend their time advancing their careers or surfing the internet than have sex.

Even as dating apps like Tinder neatly package potential partners behind a screen, a study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior journal found that those born in the 1990s are more than twice as likely to abstain from sex in their early 20s, when compared with the previous generation.

"I'd rather be watching YouTube videos and making money," Noah Patterson, an 18-year-old who has never had sex, told The Washington Post. Sex is "not going to be something people ask you for on your résumé."

Besides looking to get ahead, Patterson and other '90s babies interviewed by The Post cited a lack of interest in romantic relationships or sex itself.

"For an average date you're going to spend at least two hours," Patterson said. "And in that two hours I won't be doing something I enjoy."
