    44% sounds like bullshit and based on the fact that it is CNN I would class it as sensationalist news which tend to just get stuff wrong and not actually contribute anything. I think if the ages where around 18 then maybe but from what I know 44% sounds way too high as university students and poor people tend to both be way more promiscuous than only 50%.

    lol 44% virgins?
    The questions are:
    1. The quantity of the samples?
    2. Does the samples can really represent Japan as a whole? (only taking samples from 1 city isn't valid)
    3. Are they seriously telling the truth? (there is no way you can ask for examination just because you don't believe their words right?)

    Not surprised about the female oriented dating games rising. But I am sad that a lot of people in Japan are forgoing real life intimacy for virtual stimulus. If the article is semi-accurate.

    Well I , for one, actually welcome Japan's lowering birth rate, less MCs I have to worry about. Nah I'm joking. But I see Japan's lowering Birthrate as an improvement, after all the world is already exploding with people as is.

    Japan is a society in which sexuality is frowned upon, and yet it is encouraged in all Japanese media. Impressionable youths simply decide to give up on female contact - because of the aforementioned statement - and are content with the "pseudo-relationships", shall we call it, that they have with fictional characters. It's simple. Most jap guys turn into spaghetti when a girl even touches them: I know from several sources that it's true. It's not very surprising.

    Also hours in the Japanese business community are long and stressful, making relationships seem more and more like a hassle that is an unnecessary stresser.
