Are Japan's young adults really losing interest in sexual relationships?

There is a documentary i watched once about male host clubs in japan that japanese women go to and pay men to entertain, flirt and drink with them. Often the females would be fooled into thinking the males were actually interested hence continuing to waste their money, and even trying to pursue a realationship.. some of these guys even offer themselves as prostitutes. If the females have no shame in doing that why would it matter if they went to a proper brothel?


I think I know which one you're talking about; I watched it too. The thing is...almost all of those women were prostitutes. When the hosts were filmed trying to go after women beyond that scope, none of them responded.

Also, I highly doubt the flamboyancy has anything to do with it; if a person is going to be gay, they're going to be gay. And if they're going to be straight but not want children, then they won't have children. Visual K, or other things are just more ways people express themselves in the way they're most comfortable.

I think, as it's been stated, that the expectations are very high, and kids those ages are stressed enough by school work alone. The thought of sex is one thing, but the thought of settling down the kids is another. The video didn't show the people being asked, 'do you want children?' they asked 'are you interested in sex?' I'm a little proud the teens said no, on that level.

i need to move to Japan to help them out. I've got tons of valuable experience with women being disinterested that they could benefit from.


I laughed so hard at this! XD

I honestly had no idea there was such an issue, other than what I considered was a handful of youth turning to A.I. and prosthetic "relationships" instead of real partners.

After reading the artcile and watching the video, it seems to me that as a culture, they've overcomplicated the dating process a bit with daunting expectations, so it's no wonder nobody there wants to go through the aggravation of seeking a mate.

Is their population declining more rapidly due to this? Thoughts?


Yeah it's kind of a strange thing. Hell I remember reading an article about the number of young Japanese adult males that admit to being otaku and of those surveyed, 25% of them admitted to it. I don't know how severe that is, considering the lack of information on how many people participated in the survey but hey.

Also, I think you're right. It seems pretty nuts to date someone over there, but I still think its a bitch to date here too. Different reasons, same result. Eh well, at least our sex rate ain't dropping. They'll go extinct at this rate.

They have no real sexual identity. They just seem to get their jollies off anything they can.

Have any of you ever considered the fact that the lifestyle in which Modern day Japan lives in is extremely difficult?

If Japanese people completely lose interest in sex, the world will end.

Those were my exacts thoughts....who would want to admit something like that?!


I don't believe they're having sex with the intention of procreating in those places, with those people, and I'm certain just the opposite is practiced, with heavy contraceptive practices (how many people want a bastard child?). The problem isn't simply a lack if sexual interest, it's hooking up with a long-term partner in order to have and raise children. That's a serious sexual commitment.



That's another way of looking at it that i hadn't thought of....and with their culture, it would really be shameful!

This is an example of why people don't want to admit their intimate encounters.

I really wouldn't like the most artistically gifted people of the world to die out.
