Japanese Aren’t Having Enough Sex?!
Japan frets over sexless teens.
Japanese people aren’t having enough sex! “Obviously, the most important reason for Japan’s declining birth rate is that people are not having sex,” Dr. Kunio Kitamura, head of the Japan Family Planning Association said after a report showing that teens 16 to 19 are just not interested in doing the deed.
36% of Japanese men aged 16 to 19 say they’re uninterested in or averse to sex, according to a recent survey. That’s 19% more than just two years ago, and some 59% of women in the same age group feel the same way, the Wall Street Journal reported.Dr. Kitamura complains that men have become “herbivores,” Japanese slang for passive and fragile men.
