Japanese Social Problems

Every day I read the Mainichi Shinbunp online and I'm amazed at the number of people in high positions of power who are caught having sex with underage girls, molesting underage girls on trains, or taking advantage of underage girls in other situations.
Why are there so many lolicons in Japan? Or does it just seems that way because every instance is reported in the news?

On the other side of this issue is the numerous Jr High and High School girls prostituting themselves on cellphone matchmaking sites. They are making $$$ off the lolicons and use it to buy the latest fashions. It doesn't seem the Japanese government is doing anything to stop the other side of issue.

Next, has anyone else noticed how many people commit suicide by jumping in front of trains in Japan. The Japanese don't do suicide half assed. It isn't like in the US where someone tries to off themselves by taking a bunch of pills and failing at death just as bad as they failed at life. Everyday in the Japanese news you get a story that reads like this... "<Insert Random Japanese Name> jumped in front of an oncoming train bound far <Insert Destination> at <Insert Station Name>. Trains were delayed <Random # Minutes> inconveniencing <Insert Random Large #> people." The funny thing is, the article focuses more on how many people were inconvenienced rather than the guy committing suicide. It seems to be socially acceptable to commit suicide in Japan as long as no one is inconvenienced by it.

Finally, there is the issue of sexless marriages. People in Japan just don't have sex after they are married. Almost every Jr High student is having sex 3 times a day but once they marry, that is it, no more sex. I'm not kidding about all the Jr High students having sex. I have 3 friends who are former JETs and they all told me the same thing. (Well this is another social issue that can be discussed.) Anyways, why does the sex stop in Japan? Why are there so many unhappy, sexless couples? I have a story that may relate to the issue. I was on a tour of Mt Fuji this past fall and the tour guide was a 60 year old Japanese man. He believed that a woman's role was in the home taking care of the man. Doing whatever the man wanted. Cooking, cleaning, sex. He blamed the raise of sexless marriages and the decline of the population on the Japanese Women not performing their duties properly. He also commented that many Japanese men beat their wives. This completely blew me away. Moreover, he didn't have a problem with it.
Are people like this guy the entire problem? Or what is the problem?

There are so many more social issues I could add, but this is a good starting point.

If I'm not mistaken, the Japanese have the lowest frequency of sex than any other country.

Thing is. If you have sex with an underage in america, you will be killed. Not by the govt but by the people.

i agree with high suicide rate.. but i won't stop em.. like, if they want to die, let em die.. not forcing em to live(TIE em UP! lol no).. and about newspaper, yeah some write articles like that because when they commit suicide by train, many ppl(hundreds or even thousands) who rides train to work or school will be late and causing bigtime inconviniences ... made by one suicider..

underage sex, uhhmm in America, at school, kids always talk about sex.. nothin is wrong with it.. wait, something is wrong about it.. but not only in Japan.. it's all over the world..

no sex after marriage.. well im sure they dont want MANY kids.. probably 1 or 2(some 3), but after that, it'll get hard to have luxey life.. unless they're rich..

I think this link explains rather well why prostitution of minors seems widely accepted in Japan. I'm not sure about the part saying a sex with a 12 year old is basically legal in Tokyo though. Maybe the same reasons that lead lots of Japanese men to a schoolgirl fetish makes them not feel attracted to their wifes. *shrugs* I mean in the end it's pedophilia lived to the fullest. A wife is like the opposite of a schoolgirl.
