Birth in Japan – Are the Japanese really losing interest in sex?

One of Japan’s biggest current problems is the drop in birth that is higher each year. Japan’s population has gradually decreased, especially the number of young people. Research shows that one of the main causes is the lack of sex and relationship even between couples. In this article we want to discuss whether the Japanese really have lost interest in sex and what are the real reasons for the fall of Birth.

The lack of interest in sex is known as sekkusu shinai shokogun or “celibacy syndrome”. Research shows that more than 50% of the population has been without having sex for up to a month. Even married Japanese claim that they don’t have much sex most of a time because they get tired of work or just have no interest.

No interest in sex?

The Japanese have not lost interest in sex, the adult entertainment industry in Japan is gigantic and active. The big problem is that many Japanese have never dated or are even virgins. Several factors make it difficult for Japanese to get a relationship or marriage, such as:

  • Social Isolation;
  • Lack of contact;
  • Shyness;
  • Too much work;
  • Perfectionism;
  • Lack of interest;
  • Other ways to achieve sexual pleasure;
  • They think dating from work too much;

Shyness in Japan is one of the main visible causes that prevent young Japanese from relating. If you live in Brazil and meet shy people, you should imagine the difficulty they face, I’m one of those people. In Brazil this is simpler because we are surrounded by people who interact without any shame, now imagine a scenario where most people are shy? If no one takes action ends up being alone.


Shyness turns out to be so great that even the perverts of Japan are arrested not for rape anymore for stealing panties or doing other things that does not involve sex between 2 people.

Wrong interest in sex

Despite the lack of relationships, interest in sex is common among young people. Many suffer from shyness or social isolation but end up engaging with erotic media, objects of sexual pleasure or even prostitution. In reality prostitution is not a difficult thing to access in Japan, even for free it is possible to relate.

Many Japanese end up finding other ways to have sexual pleasure without needing the opposite sex. Some young people prefer to relate to anime characters and games than with real people. Others really want to have a real relationship, but they make no effort to achieve this.

Some couples end up going months without having sex, especially after their first child. Some claim they work too hard and come home tired. Is that really the real reason? Most of them sometimes people waste their time on their computer, mobile or drinking in a bar rather than doing company for the spouse.

Unfortunately many marriages take place in Japan no more out of love for status and desire to stabilize. It’s not as big as in other countries, but there are cases of infidelity in marriage, sometimes both know about cases but don’t care. Some even do not consider betrayal to find sexual pleasure outside of marriage, some consider sex only as a way to get pleasure and not love.

Is birth really fault for lack of sex?

The fact that the Japanese don’t have many children doesn’t mean they don’t have sex. This is the result of a capitalist and intelligent society, so much so that it is very common for us to repair people without financial conditions to have 10 children in Brazil and rich to have only 1, 2 or none. If the person is smart she won’t make kids without being able to raise, many Japanese couples think about it. So much so that only 2% of children born in Japan are before marriage.


The power of consumption of the Japanese is high plus raising a child in Japan is still difficult, even with financial help from the government. Sometimes both the man and his wife work and don’t want to have a child to be lonely. There are several cultural aspects that end up contributing to couples not having children:

  • Working day;
  • Decision of the couple;
  • It requires a lot of dedication;
  • Financial conditions;

Another big culprit for the lack of birth in Japan is Abortion. Despite being banned from aborting for any reason in Japan, doctors end up turning a blind eye and performing abortion. I’ve written two articles talking about abortion and birth in Japan, you can read by accessing them below:

Less Generalizations

We should not wonder that in Japan people have no interest in sex or for having children. We note that the great cause of Birth is far beyond the lack of sex. Not to mention that these surveys are never accurate, they are usually conducted in large cities with small numbers, where people work hard, and are conducted with shy and shameful Japanese who may not even tell the truth about it.

It’s not that the Japanese have no interest in sex, most just couldn’t find the right person. Most of the time couples don’t end up having sex in Japan is due to the lack of interest of both, don’t need to be scared or afraid to relate to a person from Japan.
