The Guardian: Why have young people in Japan stopped having sex?

The Guardian: Why have young people in Japan stopped having sex?

This article brings up some, while tangential, perhaps, interesting questions about what a community is, should be, and might be changing.  Is gender equality doomed to end this way? Well, this isn’t an example of equality by any means, but it’s fodder for thought.

  1. Thanks for sharing this, Annie! It brings up interesting questions…especially when the article says that 70% of Japanese women leave the workforce after having their first child. While there is less sex, are women actually being more objectified? The article says, ” especially in Japan’s giant cities, are “spiralling away from each other”. Lacking long-term shared goals, many are turning to what she terms “Pot Noodle love” – easy or instant gratification, in the form of casual sex, short-term trysts and the usual technological suspects: online porn, virtual-reality “girlfriends”, anime cartoons.”

    I’m not sure…perhaps only time will tell
