Japan gradually losing interest in sex, relationships

In an era where dating is at your fingertips, one part of the world is losing interest in conventional relationships altogether.

For a country with more than 127 million people, very few are choosing to go on a date, or even get intimate with another person.

In fact, the national “turn off” is growing so rapidly, that almost half of those under 40 in Japan are still virgins.



Basically, sex is no longer a priority for the younger demographic. A “celibacy syndrome” which could have huge effects beyond its borders.

According to an investigation by SBS’s The Feed , millions of people under 30 aren’t even dating. Instead, they simply turn to masturbation clubs or robots for intimacy. And while it may sound comical, this growing trend is a problem the government says is only getting worse, and could have dire consequences on Japan — and the world.

Japan already has one of the world’s lowest birthrates. With a population that has been shrinking for the past decade, Japan is projected to drop a further one-third by 2060.

With birthrates at all time low, The Feed’s presenter Marc Fennell says adult diapers are almost outselling nappies for babies.

The cause for abstinence has been blamed on a number of areas — from porn to anime and even the use of robots for sex.

But according to Fennell, there’s a much bigger player at hand. Young people are just “too busy” for a relationship, or to even have sex with another person.

Single “salary man” 26-year-old Taiyo Hashimoto says his 15-hour-day workloads means he has little time for a relationship or to even go on a date.

In a survey conducted in 2011, the amount of single people in Japan had reached an all time high. The research found that 61 per cent of unmarried men and 49 per cent of unmarried women between the age of 18-34 were not in any type of relationship. Another study, said 30 per cent of men in their 30s, and the same proportion in their 20s, admitting that they have no experience of dating a woman.

When speaking to the newsmen, she expressed that the idea is to use satellite data collected by the UKSA to develop a system that is able to predict when pest infestations will strike a week or more in advance.
