Japan Wilts From With-In…..

Posted By on October 21, 2013

In Japan, diapors for old people now out sell diapors for babys….and it just gets worse from there.   A recent study showed a third of the people under 30 in Japan have never dated at all. That explains Japan’s fertility rate, which is 1.39 for women, compared with 1.93 in the U.S., according to the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.

Japan’s population decline is no mystery either. It peaked in 2005, but is poised in 2014 to shrink to 125.2 million, down from 126.5 million in 2012, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Enen worse, Japan’s Institute of Population and Social Security reports an astonishing 90% of young women believe that staying single is “preferable to what they imagine marriage to be like”.

This isn’t just Japan, as many of the shifts there are occurring in other advanced nations, too. Across urban Asia, Europe and America, people are marrying later or not at all, birth rates are falling, single-occupant households are on the rise and, in countries where economic recession is worst, young people are living at home.

From The Gardian:

Official alarmism doesn’t help. Fewer babies were born here in 2012 than any year on record. (This was also the year, as the number of elderly people shoots up, that adult incontinence pants outsold baby nappies in Japan for the first time.) Kunio Kitamura, head of the JFPA, claims the demographic crisis is so serious that Japan “might eventually perish into extinction”.

Japan’s under-40s appear to be losing interest in conventional relationships. Millions aren’t even dating, and increasing numbers can’t be bothered with sex. For their government, “celibacy syndrome” is part of a looming national catastrophe. Japan already has one of the world’s lowest birth rates. Its population of 126 million, which has been shrinking for the past decade, is projected to plunge a further one-third by 2060. Aoyama believes the country is experiencing “a flight from human intimacy” – and it’s partly the government’s fault.

The number of single people has reached a record high. A survey in 2011 found that 61% of unmarried men and 49% of women aged 18-34 were not in any kind of romantic relationship, a rise of almost 10% from five years earlier. Another study found that a third of people under 30 had never dated at all. (There are no figures for same-sex relationships.) Although there has long been a pragmatic separation of love and sex in Japan – a country mostly free of religious morals – sex fares no better. A survey earlier this year by the Japan Family Planning Association (JFPA) found that 45% of women aged 16-24 “were not interested in or despised sexual contact”. More than a quarter of men felt the same way.

    My personal princess adores sending those to the school . . . easy to slip into quickly. We ordered extra couple of lambskin boats to have 360 frontal feeling delicate and even soft for ages.
