Japan's demographic challenges are well-known: It's home to the world's oldest population and has a shrinking birthrate and an astonishing number of single people. And it seems that, despite Japan's demographic challenges are well-known: It's home to the world's oldest population and has a shrinking birthrate and an astonishing number of single people. And it seems that, despite government efforts to incentivise marriage and child-rearing, things aren't quite trending in the right direction.

According to the Japan Times, a new survey of Japanese people ages 18 to 34 found that 70 percent of unmarried men and 60 percent of unmarried women are not in a relationship. It gets worse: Around 42 percent of men and 44.2 percent of women admitted that they were virgins.

The study is carried out by Japan's National Institute of Population and Social Security Research every five years. The organization has noted a marked trend since its first foray on questions of relationships and sex in 1987, when it found that 48.6 percent of men and 39.5 percent of women surveyed were unmarried. In 2010, 36.2 percent of men and 38.7 percent of women in the 18-34 age bracket said they were virgins. The number of children among couples who have been married for between 15 and 19 years averaged a record low this year.

Actually I remember a video about Japan Robot Nation a few years back talking about building robots to fill out the population when interviewing women and relationship the majority of them said they are mot interested in work than relationships and didn't plan on starting one until their mid or late 30s if at all.

See this is what happens when you create a society the way Japan has. It's just more proof the Asian way of doing things is just plain wrong.

I don't understand why virginity matters if they're trying to provide incentives for marriage and child rearing. Being a virgin shouldn't affect whether you desire to marry or start a family. It's just an old fashioned notion of purity.
