I'm a millennial and I can't stop oversharing about my sex life. And, while I hate to point the finger, I blame social media

I first realised I was a sexual oversharer during a pretty uncomfortable moment with a new housemate — someone I barely knew, but was trying to get to know. As I sipped my first coffee of the day, I leant across and told my new housemate something I’d told other friends just days previous. I described, in graphic detail, a sexual escapade; "Rachel," my new housemate said without a hint of a smile. "That is too much information for me. Seriously."
