    Default Wow... this... sucks...

    (AP) The secret behind Japan's plunging birth rate?

    A record 39.7 percent of Japanese citizens ages 16-to-49 have not had sex for more than a month — up 5 percentage points from two years ago — according to a survey published this week by the Japan Family Planning Association.

    Among married couples, the rate was only slightly lower, at 34.6 percent.

    "This is very bad news for the country's birth rate, and something the government needs to look into urgently," said Dr. Kunio Kitamura, the family planning association's director.

    The survey comes amid concerns over Japan's faltering birth rate, which fell in 2005 to a record low of 1.26 births in an average woman's lifetime. The decline has stoked fears of impending tax revenue shortfalls and labor shortages.

    "The situation is dismal," Kitamura said. "My research shows that if you don't have sex for a month, you probably won't for a year."

    Kitamura partly blamed stress from busy working lives. A decline in physical communication skills in an increasingly Web-based society was also a factor, he said.

    The association said it handed out survey forms to 2,713 randomly selected people and received responses from 636 men and 773 women in November 2006. It gave no margin of error. In a similar poll taken two years ago, 35 percent reported having no sex for a month.

    Japan came last in a 29-country study of sexual satisfaction published by the University of Chicago last year, with a mere 25.7 percent of lovers expressing satisfaction in bed.

    The country was also in last place among 41 nations in a 2005 poll by condom manufacturer Durex, with people having sex just 45 times a year compared to a global average of 103.
    Japanese people, in all their horrific porn glory,... get no nookie, and the little bit they get sucks. Wow. Epic failure on a national level.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    So does that mean they will slowly, but surely at that rate cease to exist? Too bad no more people to invent tech goodies for us.

    i'd say there's nothing wrong with plunging birth rates. the world is overpopulated as it is. just needs to redistribute the population.

    Why? C-pop isn't half as good, and I've heard some of it. Nationalism?

    Whatever you've heard has got to be better than whiny nasally voiced wannabe cute she-males.
