People in the Land of the Rising Sun might be spanking the monkey, but they’re not playing hide-the-salami. Why? And what does this mean for the future of Japanese society?
The Japanese media has diagnosed a ‘celibacy syndrome’: young people in Japan are not engaging in sex, and it’s a harbinger of a national crisis.The population is aging as well as decreasing, and this trend has been going on since 2007.  Between the ages of 18 and 34, 61% of men and 49% of women were not dating or in any sort of romantic or sexual relationship,  and a third of people under 30 had never dated at all.
