The Independent UK newspaper reported that nearly half of Japanese people are entering their 30s without any sexual experience, according to new research.

The country is facing a steep population decline as a growing number of youngsters abstain from sex and avoid romantic relationships.

Some men claimed they “find women scary” as a poll found that 43 per cent of people aged 18 to 34 from the island nation say they are virgins, said the paper.

Internet porn was to blame said a woman who was asked her views on the results of the survey.

Japan’s National Institute of Population and Social Security Research predicts that the country’s current population of 127 million will decline by nearly 40 million by 2065.

This week, The Independent Singapore reported that Japanese men are now getting married to their ‘game consoles’ virtual characters for which they are falling in love.

3D VAGINA

An artist Megumi Igarashi, 45, who once made a 3D image of her own vagina, said “building a relationship is not easy”.

“A boy has to start from asking a girl on a date,” she told the BBC.

“I think a lot of men just cannot be bothered.

“They can watch porn on the internet and get sexual satisfaction that way.”
