In this paper, the authors focus on youth and sexual activity, considering atime period that goes from the mid-sixties to the end of the nineties. To thisend, the analysis, which is based on secondary data provided by a series ofstudies, will consider certain areas of significance, such as the beginning andthe intensity of young people’s sexual life, the degree of importance of sex at apersonal level, homosexuality and masturbation. This is aimed to develop introductoryreflections on the theme of the evolution of sexual behaviour inyouth, to highlight if and how, indeed, it has changed in relation to the successionof the different generations. At the basis, there is the idea - widespread inthe collective imagination, though partly contradicted by the findings of anumber of significant national research - that the latest generations of youngand very young are sexually anticipatory, addicted to free and unrestrained sex,likely as they are to look for pure enjoyment and physical pleasure, and proneto unconventional behaviour and open to the so-called extreme sex.
