That and there's still the lingering thought that a guy that can't get laid is a loser.
That explains the part about those who look down on guys who are virgins, but not the part about looking down on a guy who they know could
have more promiscuous sex but chooses to settle down with his significant other, which is the attitude referenced in the linked video.
Will our children be all about commitment and saving it for marriage, in rebellion against our generation's 'sex is just fun' attitudes?
Well, as I pointed out in the OP, there are various attitudes that could each contrast with each other in different ways, so I don't think there's necessarily a specific direction in which rebellion would take it.
That, and the "just for fun" part is more in line with human instinct, thus probably less prone to backlash. If
there ends up being a greater generational concern about saving it for relationships, it would end up being analogous to our generation's environmental concerns, what with calling the previous generation shortsighted and all that...
I dunno, it's been a while since promiscuity was ever the norm...assuming that was ever true.
I'm sure if you look back far enough in our evolutionary history we'll find something.
