No sex, please: we are Japanese and married
A recent research in Japan reveals that more than a third of married Japanese couples do not have sex, and this contributed to the country’s exceptionally low birth rate. The Government research suggested that 34.6 per cent of couples had not made love for more than four weeks.
“My research shows that if you don’t have sex for a month, you probably won’t for a year. This is very bad news for the country’s birth rate, and something the Government needs to look into urgently.” said Kunio Kitamura, the director of the countryâ€™s Family Planning Association.
Doctors and anthropologists didn’t wait to come up with a few simple reasons why the Japanese are giving up sex.
- The busy lifestyle of many urban Japanese men and women. To them, work is much more important than sex.
- Most Japaneses’ thin-walled and small apartments do not offer much opportunities for privacy.
- Poor communication especially among older Japanese, who are constrained from discussing sex even with their spouses.
In another study done by the condom manufacturer, Durex, Japan came last in a table of countries which had the greatest sexual satisfaction. Japanese have sex 45 times a year, compared with the average of 103.
What about yourself? Are you married but “no sex, please”? 🙂
