Why have young people in Japan stopped having sex?

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’.

Translation: They don't find Asian men attractive.

Since Fukushima, the Japanese may not feel like bringing damaged kids into the world.

“Aoyama’s first task with most of her clients is encouraging them “to stop apologising for their own physical existence”.”

It sounds like someone has been making them feel guilty for having been born.

I’d say it was all of the tofu and all other soybean-based foods since soy has tons of estrogen in it.

Why? I’ll tell you why:

1. Really, really, really good sex toys - all (even MORE of) the pleasure, with none of the hassles.

2. A culturally and genetically inbred national screw loose, that’s been blatantly evident in various manifestations as far back as history traces.

Could also be since Japan lost a heck of a lot of their male population during WWII, as we’ve seen in Europe, that leaves a devastating effect for generations.

It sounds like either domestic Japanese men don’t have a clue how to pleasure a woman...

...or the Japanese made their toys a bit TOO good.

Jokes aside, it also sounds perhaps like ANOTHER government has demonized the Family through similar policies undertaken here in the west. (yes, I avoided the term ‘nuclear’)

Maybe if governments would butt out of people’s private lives these things would sort themselves out.

It seems that in every country the government is either trying to encourage or discourage people from having sex and/or reproducing.

China says don’t do it.
Japan says do it.
U.S. says do it, but only if you’re on welfare and vote democrat.

The Japanese government might relax their immigration laws in order to change this problem.

Not really.

Their elitism and racism will keep them from doing that. No one can be Japanese like the Japanese!

We can talk about this in the mainstream media because they’re not white, but this goes on a bit in the western countries too, probably for the same reasons, among them children taught to apologize for their existence.

>>”Is Japan providing a glimpse of all our futures? Many of the shifts there are occurring in other advanced nations, too. Across urban Asia, Europe and America, people are marrying later or not at all, birth rates are falling, single-occupant households are on the rise and, in countries where economic recession is worst, young people are living at home.” <<

America tomorrow?

With most of the arable and buildable land in Japan already in use, maybe that’s not such a bad thing, except for the aged who used to be taken care of by family in their later years.

They say all the estrogen in baby formula has contributed to many boys growing up gay.

Yes. Chemicals in the food and environnment and lots of soy to make up the protein gap. The Males use hair spray and look like girls.

Japan’s fertility rate is low — but not remarkably less than the N.American or European rates. The difference is that Japan isn’t using massive immigration (mainly from the 3rd world) to maintain population growth.

In 50 years, the population of Japan will still be Japanese. What will “western” nations be? My money is on Japan.
