So basically japan is just loosing all interest in sex. I didn't know this was possible. They are having population fears now because people are just not having sex or dating. I think its because of their obsession with video games....


http://www.theguardi...pped-having-sex

A survey earlier this year by the Japan Family Planning Association (JFPA) found that 45% of women aged 16-24 "were not interested in or despised sexual contact". More than a quarter of men felt the same way.

Another study found that a third of people under 30 had never dated at all

the number of single people has reached a record high. A survey in 2011 found that 61% of unmarried men and 49% of women aged 18-34 were not in any kind of romantic relationship, a rise of almost 10% from five years earlier

Simple really - children rebel.
If the parents are accountants the kids rebel and become artists.
If the parents are radical Christians, the kids rebel and become Buddhists.
If the parents are pushing for children above all other concerns, then ...

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

Plenty folks not in a relationship?  I can believe that.  Young folks 'not interested' in sex.  LOL

I can remember a survey done in my High School back in the olden days that showed that only 5% of all pupils had tried alcohol and only 7% had tried smoking.  I LOL'd at that too.  (the exit polls showed it was 75% for both)

Yeah but you can use protection to have sex without kids. so even if parents push for kids then it shouldn't have an effect on wanting sex

Hmm, whatever the Japanese Equivalent of Hollywood is needs to start cranking out romantic comedies that are absurdly optimistic and unrealistic.

why is this such a major concern??
so what if they don't want to have sex. the world could use a bit of population control anyway
seeing all the teens and very young women getting pregnant in this country i kind of wish it would carry over.

Hopefully this means love is dying.

Maybe the kids in Japan just know love is a lie..
and are smart enough to know it.

They are much more intelligent than the US kids.

Maybe young uns have forgotten how to talk to one other, face to face.  Forgotten that romance should come before sex and forgotten the thrill of 'the chase'.  Or maybe they've never known.  :(

oh wait, no. what i actually like is sarcasm.

True, unfortunately.  Additionally, there is still that lingering misogynism in the Japanese psyche.  In one of the conversations I have had with the office ladies, more than once is brought up the point that a woman who expects to get anywhere in her career has no options to do both this and have a child, as daycare is expensive and few businesses have facilities for children or procedures in place to protect the jobs of pregnant mothers.  A woman with a child being tended by the father at home would be seen as a woman with a failure of a husband (because, obviously, being a househusband is a mark of shame, unlike being a housewife).  And since she isn't around the home to prod her husband into bettering himself (and if the child is at daycare too often, she isn't at home to nurture her child), then she is marked down yet again (somehow, it always seems to circle around back to the woman.

Well, since the population of Japan is, I make it, near enough 127 000 000, I don't think anyone need worry too much just yet. Anyway, a gradual and voluntary reduction in population of the most heavily populated countries is surely a laudable thing; it might save the NWO having to implement their population reduction plans just yet, at least.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

Well lets get out there and show 'em how its done! With our combination of youth and experience, we'll have them face to face and loving it.... or fail miserably because none of us can speak Japanese.... I really should have thought this out.

I reject your reality, and substitute my own! Mostly because yours is boring as hell.
