What I meant was leave people alone. There are bigger issues than someone who hasn't had sex.

America is more sex obsessed these days. If you watch the movies you get the idea that the #1 priority of Senior HS boys is having it. Though when I was that age it was getting into college, probably still is. I guess it's not even on the radar for Japanese that age.

No no.... my assertion was that even people with zero desire to breed, will nevertheless find themselves attracted to secondary sexual characteristics most conducive to successful breeding.

As for what's happening in Japan, this is indeed an inscrutable mystery. An economic explanation is on first blush appealing, but this has to be wrong, because the economic situation for example in the "peripheral" nations of Europe is no less dire than in Japan, and yet there's no evidence that sexual interest is somehow waning.

Guarantee you that vibrator sales and plastic doll sells are probably through the roof.

Sure there are very few people on the earth that are completely asexual.

They just turn to other means to please themselves.

Don't be fooled.

HAH.....don't be so quick to laugh that off. Perhaps if they thought about other things in life other than their di^ks their relationships with women might be healthier. Instead of just being the typical fool just looking to score all the time. And I would move the age range to 18-40.

I can't understand this phenomena.

While it's nobody's business I was very precocious sexually, and lost my virginity at age 12. I'm not proud of this or bragging about it - I would warn any child of 12 NOT to start having sex at so young an age - but that was part of my history.

Sex is such a natural part of life, is essential for the continuation of our species, is completely free, AND so many of the things you do correlate with the instinctual need to attract a mate and reproduce. Nothing personal against virgins, after all we were all virgins at some point, but I find it odd that you could go 40 years without ever having sex.

Apparently according to this story it's not as natural as you might believe. Or at least there's always porn to substitute. And you also seem to assume that everyone is going to be successful at attracting a mate.

Also you seem to forget the fact that some people don't want to reproduce.

Said it once and I'll say it again: if a person's entire existence depends on whether they've had sex or not, it is safe to say that they need help.
Remember the Billy Joel lyric "Catholic girls start much too late?" Well, they don't anymore. They became westernized and many (if not most) of them put out.

Eastern societies, however, are more traditional and always will be. Of course you have scum in every culture, but the average person there isn't too crazy about the West's obsession with sex.

Like most other stats, I'm sure that's a bunch of BS. I always lie whenever they ask my income, I always answer $10,000 or less or whatever the lowest bracket is. I'm sure most of those people were simply too embarrassed to answer those kinds of questions.
