What makes millennials different from older generations?Regarding health, most millennials reported being non-smokers and purchasing alcohol on special occasions, which makes them less likely to experience blackouts after consuming too much. As for their sexuality, 22 percent of French people aged 18 to 30 find it difficult to cope with the fact that one might be a virgin in this age group. 42 percent of millennials did not have any sexual relations in the last year, whereas 47 percent had a regular sexual relationship with someone. The frequency with which this generation watches porn on a regular basis has become commonplace. There are some discrepancies between the age groups, but common ground was found in 2019: French people, when asked how they were to describe millennials, thought of them as being individualistic, which was the same way millennials viewed themselves.
What do millennials like?These tech-savvy young individuals like to spend between six and fifteen hours a week on videogames and spend as much as up to 100 euros on them.
While some might welcome a digital break, 62 percent of young people could not imagine going on vacation without their smartphones, which implies that surfing activities are taking place on their mobile internet rather than riding waves on the beach. Other than technology, French fashion is not a topic to be taken lightly, France being one of the most popular fashion hubs in the world. With 13 million young people aged 19 to 35 amongst 66.8 million people living in France, most millennials aged 18 to 30 spend an average of 400 to 500 euros on clothing.
However, staying trendy, finding an adequate position in today's society seem difficult as traditional values are shifting, and employment models are restructuring themselves. Being an in-between generation, many experience a psychological impact (stress, mood swings, anxiety) on their well-being when dealing with challenging times.
