Mark Horne posted about this problem over a year ago. Now McClatchy reports that nothing has improved. There are still a growing number of sexless Japanese.
Japan is well known for many things, and its obsession with sex is one of them. It has one of the most robust pornographic and adult-toy industries in the world and airs TV commercials for items as banal as candy that feature sexually suggestive themes. It even has an annual fertility festival that parades two five-foot-tall penis sculptures down a busy street on a Sunday afternoon.
And yet nearly half of singles in Japan have no interest in dating – a situation that many experts predict will help lead to a population decline of one-third in the next 45 years.
A researcher claims that 41.6 percent of males in their twenties have never had sex.
According to a survey of never-married people by the National Institute of Population and Social Security Research, 27.6 percent of single men and 22.6 percent of single women have no interest in engaging in a relationship with the opposite sex. Researchers cite those statistics to argue that a significant portion of Japanese simply has no interest in sex.
According to an RT news report from a couple of years ago, even married people have stopped having sex–with real humans, at least. Computer porn seems involved according to that report.
Why did this happen? What will be the economic consequences? And will it spread?
While the U.S. is fixated on homosexual and transgender delusions, the fate of the world rests on men and women getting together and having children.
