Japan's under-40s appear to be losing interest in conventional relationships. Millions aren't even dating, and increasing numbers can't be bothered with sex. For their government, "celibacy syndrome" is part of a looming national catastrophe. Japan already has one of the world's lowest birth rates. Its population of 126 million, which has been shrinking for the past decade, is projected to plunge a further one-third by 2060. Aoyama believes the country is experiencing "a flight from human intimacy" – and it's partly the government's fault.

Arm’s length: 45% of Japanese women aged 16-24 are ‘not interested in or despise sexual contact’. More than a quarter of men feel the same way. 

 

Odd. Despise sex? It's one thing to be uninterested, but to actively hate it seems whole bizarre.

If the Japanese Men aren't interested in having Sex, I'd be more than willing to go over on Holiday and do my part.

Porn that caters to the weirdest sex fetishes imaginable comes from Japan.  If that's what floats their boat, should it then be a surprise that they're not interested in each other?

Somewhat interesting piece the BBC did on it - "No Sex Please, We're Japanese"

The fact that men would rather marry a Nintendo DS character instead of a real woman might have something to do with it.

Yeah, why have a conventional sexual relationship when you can beat off watching tentacle rape.  :shifty:

Because every  time a guy has sex or gets a blow job from a girl in Japan he looks down at his penis and all he see's is pixelation! Sounds like a total **** block! :laugh:

What can I say, I'm a people person  :rofl:

 

Appears to be an abundance of Japanese Men preferring Virtual women and Anime, I can't find a different source but there was this photo of a Man holding an Anime Picture up and was asking "Real Women are dirty and smell bad, here we have anime, isn't she nice and clean?"

I've always have had a think for Asian women but if they aren't interested in sex I may have to re-think my position.

Not all asian chicks, just a lot of the Japanese ones, apparently. As far as I know the Chinese, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Malaysian, Singaporean, etc. women all dig sex like everyone else.  :woot:

When you censor the heck out of everything that shows hair no wonder they act like this. They will have to repeal the laws otherwise they will go extinct. This is bad because there will be no new anime. :cry:

Eh, I know the feeling.  Real relationships are a lot of work and failure may not be guaranteed but to some of us it sure seems that way.
