More than forty per cent of young singletons in Japan are virgins, according to a new study that highlights concerns about the country's demographic challenges. Japan already suffers from the world's oldest population and a shrinking birthrate, with the government struggling to incentivise marriage and parenthood.
Now a survey of unmarried people aged 18 to 34 found that around 42 per cent of men and 44.2 per cent of single women had never had sex.
The study is carried out by Japan's National Institute of Population and Social Security every five years.
The country's government has worked hard to booth the birthrate in recent years, providing incentives such as support for child care and tax breaks.
The new data however indicates, that, if anything Japanese men and women are growing apart.
Nearly 90 per cent of the respondents said they want to get married sometime in the future.
But 30 per cent of the 2,706 men sampled and 26 per cent of the 2,570 female respondents said they were not currently looking for a relationship.
They want to tie the knot eventually. But they tend to put it off as they have gaps between their ideals and the reality, Futoshi Ishii, head researcher for the study, told Japan Times. Thats why people marry later or stay single for life, contributing to the nations low birthrate.
The lack of sexual activity can seem at odds with a society saturated with sexual images, from television and manga comics to city billboards.
But recent years have seen a shift in traditional family structures, and a protracted economic slowdown as a global powerhouse, which has reportedly resulted in many men struggling to hold down secure, full-time jobs.

"At odds"? Not t all. The more porn, perversion and licentiousness there is, the less you have a marriage culture. And it's so distorted, even young adults are repulsed, damaged in their capacity to make a real sexual connection.
Add robot sex into the mix, and Japan as a nation becomes a relic of history. Baby-rejecters are replaced by baby-welcomers. It's as unavoidable as the Law of Gravity.
I bet if i went over for 2 weeks the women of Japan would see me as an American Brad Pitt.
How much is a round trip from Logan?
and they are all available playing online.
The don’t have Chevy vans.

Hey, if you collect enough for two tickets I'm available to help in your noble cause.
What is so interesting is that the MOST beautiful women have the European, white person look: thinner lips, round eyes, straight nose, WITH a bridge.
Perhaps she is only 4'3" tall and thus, TRUE Japanese. :o) She's wearing 6" high heels. Sorry, I'm just bein' bad.
I wonder if they get their boobs and butts done for the bathing suit competition. I think that most women in all those beauty pageants probably do.
She is deserving of the award and IS gorgeous!

Well said. I’m not sure the lack of real intimacy hasn’t spread to the west. There are times I fear only Muslims are making enough babies to sustain their culture.
They desperately need Christ and the Catholic faith.
That is what happens. They have done the impossible, they have made sex repulsive and a chore.
Now granted I think the unmarried should stay virgins until marriage but they should be looking forward to the marital bed.
But VIRGINS? They never even TRY sex? That’s either very virtuous or very weird.
Publish your photo on the internet and those Japanese women will pay your one-way air fare, Mr. Pitt.
She looks Philippino...NOT Japanese.
Japan does need more racial tolerance but this is getting sorta suspicious:
Last year a Miss Japan who was half black.
THIS year a Miss Japan who is half Indian.
This is getting silly and it smells like some weird form of affirmative action.
She still looks Phillipina to me.
We ALL do.
At the right settings she's even more gorgeous.
And we on FR need to know this because...?
