‘Japanese young people don’t want love…or sex’


Japan’s young people are not very interested in dating … but they’re not very interested in casual sex, either. According to a 2011 study, 61% of unmarried Japanese men and 49% of women aged 18 to 34 are not in any kind of romantic relationship—a figure that’s up 10% from five years prior. And a third of Japanese people under 30 have never dated at all. Meanwhile, another survey found 45% of women and more than a quarter of men aged 16 to 24 “were not interested in or despised sexual contact.” In Japan, they’re calling this new phenomenon “sekkusu shinai shokogun,” or “celibacy syndrome,” reports the Guardian, and it’s a big worry in a country with a rapidly shrinking population.

So what’s causing it? Some young professionals tell the paper that trying to balance a career and a relationship is “mendokusai”—too troublesome. “I don’t earn a huge salary to go on dates and I don’t want the responsibility of a woman hoping it might lead to marriage,” says a 31-year-old man who says he has simply ” learned to live without sex.”

I wonder also how much of this phenomenon is down to what appears to be a hardwired Japanese (male) sexual preference for adolescent girls, coupled with increasing regulation of such relationships between men and younger females?

10 years ago, the age of consent in Japan was 13, and a majority of Japanese schoolgirls were apparently engaging in ‘dates for gifts’ with older men. Due to Western and native feminist pressure, this has largely been obliterated.

While the aim of Japanese legislators might have been to encourage 20 something males to start coupling with 20 something females, it seems that Japanese men prefer not to be effectively raped by feminists, and choose instead to fap off to hentai porn and pictures of sweet Japanese teenies in bikinis.

  1. every word of this article is out to demonize men by implying that they don’t want things every human being wants.

    no, japanese men DO want love, japanese men DO want sex, japanese men DO want to date. they just don’t want the garbage that they have to choose from.

    blaming men is the easiest, shittiest thing anyone can do.

  2. What is the age of consent in Japan now?

    I am always shocked about this fierce drive for age of consent laws. Age of consent law means:

    The government sees a pressing need to savagely punish every single male who has sex with a woman under that age, with absolutely no exception.

    It does NOT mean that we think that normally it is not a great idea for kids that age to have sex.

    Because in that second case, no rigid law is needed. Or even more, no law at all is needed.

    After all we think it is not a good idea for pregnant women to drink alcohol, smoke, take drugs and permanently seriously damage a fetus for life. And still we have no law against this.

    It seems that alarmists are right that say feminism destroys Western culture. Or other rich, intelligent inventive cultures in the East, too. At least the Japanese are the only ones that don’t want to fill the dwindling population with low IQ refugees and immigrants from the lowest ranks from already poor nations.

  3. Japan is my favorite country and it’s sad to hear its gotten bad with feminism there. BTW, Human Stupidity, the current Japan age of consent is 17 in Tokyo and most prefectures have age of consent of 16+. I read some article that in Japanese society today, it is look down uponed if a man date someone younger even if girl is already adult. The same goes for South Korea. From what I heard, every country in Asia that has American influence, the age of consent is high and paedo hysteria is present. Funny is that, even North Korea has lower age of consent than any westernized nation and their southern neighbor ,which is 15 ,and it is the most oppressive nation in the world. Seems like the only countries without paedo hysteria in asia are total communist nations and anti NATO nations. Not much is happening In Buryatia, hope the ethnic Russians don’t spill feminism there.

  4. Agree with AF and patriarchal landmine. It seems Japan is becoming more and more feminist dominated.
    Japanese men obviously want LOVE and SEX, but they are not allowed to have the kind that they want.
