Japan fakkigs sex
Although that date is not until August 16, 3766, the clock brought attention to what scientists are calling a ‘demographic timebomb’.
In recent weeks, people have posted stories to the aggregator website Matome Naver, telling how in one case, a colleague married their friend of 10 years.
As couples around the world prepare to celebrate their love on Valentine’s Day , Japan is grappling with more evidence that its citizens have lost the spark in the bedroom.
A new survey by the Japan family planning association found that nearly half of married couples had not had sex for more than a month and did not expect that to change in the near future – the association’s definition of a “sexless” marriage .
The government is expected to set an upper limit for overtime of around 60 hours a month in an attempt to address long working hours highlighted by the suicide of a 24-year-old employee of the advertising firm Dentsu who had worked more than 100 hours of overtime a month leading up to her death in late 2015.
A survey conducted last year suggested that Japan is experiencing a rise in the number of virgins.
Among married men, 35.2% said that work left them “too tired” for intercourse – up dramatically from 21.3% in 2014 – while smaller numbers said they had come to see their wives solely as family members rather than as sexual partners, or that their sex lives had fizzled out after the birth of a child.“This is the first time over 30% of men answered that they were too tired from work to have sex,” Kitamura said.
“Apart from improving working hours, there is also a need to review how people work.”Pressure to overhaul Japanese employment practices to allow more time for family life has increased in recent years, yet little action has been taken to cut working hours.
But it draws parallels with Japan’s now mostly defunct omiai arranged marriage tradition, in which parents suggested partners for their adult children.If current trends persist, Japan’s population of 127 million is expected to drop to around 86 million by 2060.Sex in the modern marriage can often get pushed to one side by the conflicting commitments of parenting, busy jobs and social arrangements.The data, gathered from a survey of 3,000 people aged between 16 and 49 at the end of last year, found a 2.6 per cent rise from the last poll, conducted in 2014.
Run by the Japanese family planning association, the survey revealed a record high of 47.2 per cent of married men and women in sexless marriages.The apparent lack of interest in sex among married couples has been blamed for contributing to Japan’s low birth rate , as the country grapples with the prospect of long-term population decline and the economic fallout from a dwindling workforce.
