Hi NRE, sorry for the late reply.

I think the name of the program was called "No sex please, we're Japanese"

Could it be that the people of Japan realise that there is more to life than propagating a species. Perhaps they can see that the pattern of life - get born - go to school - enter the workforce - get married - have children - is just not what the Japanese people want anymore.

There is a theory about the three generations - first generation builds the base - second generation builds the success - third generation destroys/wastes the success and the cycle begins again. Maybe in Japan the three generation cycle is breaking down.

What with Fukishima and the generations of radiation related illnesses that are appearing and those yet to surface - the Japanese people will have to look after all those that are ill. Those that are ill may not want to contemplate marriage and children.

As for the blow up dolls and virtual beaus - perhaps it is because they offer less stress - less arguments about money and don't involve children. All in all a very interesting thread and certainly not just about Japanese people as I am sure there are many people on the planet who are alone by choice and who have not had children by choice.

Much Peace...

well there is 1 thing about the japanese that i know, based on their cartoons.

is that there are 10 girls for every guy. they all want that guy.
but the guy dosnt want any of them because hes just to busy or something.
and all the girls forcibly move into his house to annoy him.

i assume this is the culture there.


you are referring to the harem type anime cartoons...
but no, that's not the culture there, rather it's a fantasy for some japanese boys

The "powers that be" need a rapid decline in population but don't want to look like it is "man made".

Why does the world need it, environmentalism, NO, but because soon

robots and technology will be eliminating most jobs.

The 3D printer, once perfected will eliminate 3/4 of manufacturing jobs. Already nearly every aerospace item has 3D printed parts. And yes, 3D printed metal parts. The 3D printer will be on best buy shelves within 3 years at a cost lower than most high end computers.

When robots can clean better than humans, manufacture better than humans, then the need for humans to support the "powers that be", then excess human beings are no longer needed for the people who run the world on such a massive scale that we have now

How to acheive this: these are NOT moral judgments, just facts.

Get people so addicted to porn, that real sex becomes nearly impossible, and epidemic even in the US. My husband does a lot of marriage counseling and sees this quite frequently.

Glamorize and socially sanction and promote homosexuality through saturation in the media TV/Movies. This will reduce the surplus population.

Allow misogyny and promote it as culturally acceptable; ie leave the cultures that oppress women so badly they euthanize and abort female infants; and females would rather kill themselves than marry. It is little known that in Iran fathers who love their educated daughters are not forcing them to marry, they too are having a decline in population. One Arabic country is going so far as to actually build a city for women only, no men allowed. This will attract many women whose fathers don't want their daughters beat regularly by spoiled and self-indulgent men with no self control. The spread of Islam will quickly increase the number of females who refuse to marry and their fathers love them enough not to force them to.

Allow and sanction pedophilia (there is a movement afoot to do just that), this will so terrorize a generation of young people into hating sex that they will choose chastity over relationships

Allow or turn a blind eye to sex selective abortion. It reduces the population faster by ten folds because of the societal preference for male children world wide.

Don't be fooled that this a a phenomenon.
It is planned by the leaders of the world to reduce the surplus population that will not be needed in the future.

Already socialized medicine and Obamcare will/does so limit healthcare to seniors that the senior population will be reduced much faster than before, all in the name of "good" healthcare for all.

A good part of it is economics. Although Japan may be showing a relatively low unemployment rate, I'd be willing to bet a lot (if not the majority) of those jobs are service sector and don't pay too good. Factor that in with high housing costs, and you're going to be living with mama & papa-san into your 40s. That really puts a crimp on things.


Honestly, it's not fair to compare today's population to previous generations that had much more milage in terms of disposable income. (Sure they made much less back then, but that money was worth over 20X as much.)

It may look like a problem when it's a national trend, but eventually it'll start picking back up when the market starts favoring labor over employers again. When you get paid well, can afford your own house, transportation, utilities, etc. to the point of being comfortable then being able to have and support a family looks more sensible and less of a burden.

But like some people have said, finding a good match is really difficult. Everybody is picky these days. Using whatever money you have to satisfy your own wants is a lot easier, and there's much less stress involved. Why be stressed out all the time trying to pull loose ends together to keep a family going when you can manage the same amount of resources for yourself and be content. Some might think that's selfish, but in turn you're not putting anyone else through any unnecessary suffering either.

I can relate to both. No point in bothering to have kids until I can support my own weight (preferably without public aid), and although I'm currently employed I need a much better paying job to do that. (Some would say to get a second job, but I'm spent for the day after dealing with the one I've got. And I'd rather not burn out what little health I have by taking drugs or whatever would be needed to push through. If I do somehow manage any secondary income, it will be doing something I enjoy and on MY terms.)

And to be honest, I don't think anyone is down on love or sex. (I'm sure most people would be all for it if the situation is right.) It's just that once you get educated past a certain point you think things out in a practical sense and use reason no matter what your feelings may say. So don't worry too much about Japan (or other countries that may follow the trend), I'm sure modern civilization will eventually get its act together.

The 'herivore man' or soshokukei danshi phenomenon is not something new. Japanese males have been losing interesting in rearing families for decades. It's a direct offshoot of centuries of strident bushido culture and is exacerbated by the many more opportunities females have with respect to careers and life prospects.

It's also said that their soy bean centric diet - a legume high in oestrogen - is also having an effect on the male desire for sex. After all, as undermining to the notion of 'love' it is, most [intelligent] people will appreciate that without sexual desire, males and females would likely not enter into relationships.

Japan used should be used as canary in the mine as to what's happening to all of the civilised world. For it's only in Third World and theocratic nations that populations are on the increase. When people are given opportunity, the wherewithal to to make informed decision, they will choose what's best for them, not what society expects of them.

Does not bode well for the planet if the majority of its 'intelligent' inhabitance are either living in abject poverty or are brain rotten from fretful, bellicose, superstitious beliefs. Two categories that aren't necessarily mutually distinguishable.

I am not so sure I buy into this kind of logic or reason..if you can call it logic or reason.


Does not bode well for the planet if the majority of its 'intelligent' inhabitance are either living in abject poverty or are brain rotten from fretful, bellicose, superstitious beliefs. Two categories that aren't necessarily mutually distinguishable.


Remember something historically...Intelligent logical reasonable people of education and culture..can balance a budget...can they not???

We are speaking here of Enlightened, Illuminated people...of education...yet here in America you have two houses in government and neither, working separately or together, can balance a budget...they dont even speak of it anymore.
This kind of realization about educated people makes me wonder what the superstitious beliefs are which prevent educated and enlightened leadership from balancing the budget..what is their true religion???

And furthermore..the dogma that life is precious...this is the common advertising and brainwashing going on ..particularly close to election times ...but watch this one...one you seldom ever hear...even in the halls of higher education..

Democide...death by democracy..by your own governmemt.

en.wikipedia.org...

Down about three quarters of the way down this article..you see this jewel...


His research shows that the death toll from democide is far greater than the death toll from war. After studying over 8,000 reports of government-caused deaths, Rummel estimates that there have been 262 million victims of democide in the last century. According to his figures, six times as many people have died from the actions of people working for governments than have died in battle.


Notice what is stated here..that there have been about 262 million people killed by their own government ..in times of peace..outside war...in addition to war...and this in the last 100 years.

The last 100 years are the times of education..enlightenment...illumination..science and the upward reach of mankind.

But is it in fact so???

My point here is to get the reader to think through carefully as to what is "Intelligent inhabitance."




Today such is quickly becoming if not already become just a xerox copy of someone elses programming..no individual thinking going on ...people as mass machines. No thinking going on ..lots of individual self indulgence.

I will give you Dr Warren Farrells definition of pornography...as best I can recall it.


Access to dreams, fantasies, expectations, beliefs, inexpensively, quickly, and without rejection.


Now go back and look at the video once again.
When I watch it I see people who are machines ..being serviced by and servicing an industry...no thinking going on..just self indulgence when they are not working.
They appear to me to be children ...reacting to a external stimulus..pavlov's dog....and cant wait to get back to external social stimulus when not working. Little real thinking going on.

Amusement...Amuse.

A- Without

Muse-Thinking.

Without thinking..Amuse Amusement. Something fed to us to prevent thinking. Much better that we automatically default.

No thinking required or necessary...only defaulting to Amuse Amusement


It is happening here in America but not quite as rapidly...but it is happening

This is an interesting topic...and I was not aware that it was going on in Japan. My thanks to the OP for presenting this informations.

I dont know if you were trying to take over a group how would you do it. How does the CIA do it, simple really find the stupidest meanest guy you can find and make him leader of that group, effectively completely reversing everything about said group and society on its head.


One day people will wake up and realize what some enlightened ones have known for eons. That humanity is a conquered species, and it has been so for a long, long time. And the whole of the thing you call civilization the domestication of the human animal, and there society's, has been to turn this.


Into this.


Or maybe I am just pulling your leg. Who knows eh.


But in all seriousness this is actually a very easy problem to fix, or at least in theory. However lets just face it both males and females just suck at the very things they think there predominantly good at, contrary to popular believe females generally just plain suck at nurturing, and males just plain suck. Which is why society was invented, and why constructs there in were they get together were invented, because there not able to do so otherwise on there own. Duh! Those that can, Do! Those that cant? Well! they write a book about it. And I still dont get it why people act and think the whole of our societies has been anything more then a constant trial and error.

But hey! # happens, things change. So we shall see, but the signs are everywhere, however there pointing to ---> that its all going downhill, which is contrary to what people believe, or what is expounded on the social networks.

...and at the moment of marriage, or at least childbirth, women are expected to quit their jobs, so they become powerless without a voice...


And therein lies the problem. That's a GIANT lie. Who has a bigger voice? a man who works 40hrs/wk with 6 managers above him? Or a woman who directly influences the children she raises. She has a direct effect on the future and it's evidenced in our declining culture since womens 'liberation'.

While a woman who stays at home and raises 4 children directly influences nearly every choice they make, who does that man influence? His boss? His coworkers? Those people forget about him the moment they walk out the door.

It's amazing how blind our society is to these simple truths.

For all those saying you need to be educated, plan for your family extensively, etc...

You are such lost and confused souls, you are directly contributing to the problem. To an extent you are correct, but like most people, you take things too far. You shouldn't have children if you can't afford to shelter, clothe and feed them. Since that only requires a salary of about 20k/yr (depending on location) there aren't many couples that shouldn't be having children.

What needs to happen is a transformation from materialism and selfishness to love and selflessness. I would rather raise 10 kids in poverty, teaching them to love their family, friends, and neighbors, than to have 1 child that went to an ivy league college, but was selfish.

Things are just things, step away from the rat race, love your family. That's where true happiness is. True happiness is never found in having the smartest kid, or the most athletic kid. True happiness is found in having a good kid and a significant other to share in the successes and failures of life, regardless of financial success.

Quit viewing things in such a materialistic way.

End rant.

galadofwarthethird,

I am not sure of your comparison to the wolf being all so big and bad on the food chain..or the apex so to speak. I say this because I know the the wolf can run faster than men, see better ..day and night, smell better etc etc etc. But I also know that men ..eskimo men..figured out that a certain seal or whalebone can be bent over and tied together with sinew. Then it is buried in a piece of animal meat or fat for the wolf to come along and eat. The sinew disolves in the wolf stomach and the bent over bone springs out and punches a hole in the wolf stomach and or intestines and he dies of peritonitis. That is how a smart eskimo..solved their wolf problem.
Properly applied this principle can be done with people as well.
Often just the thought or realization is enough to put people who try to behave as wildlife..in check.
I have little use for two legged wildlife.

Now ..would the average person today be able to figure this out..not likely..but someone did at one time ..and men grew. Those who did not died off of various causes. So to will it be today.


As to the meanest stupidist guy..becoming the head of the group..it usually means the most capable of violence to keep the others in line. But this person is nothing more than a puppet...on the string by others who wish to remain unseen and unknown. This is very very common in the halls of power today. Proxies.

This awareness made me realize that the standards for public office/leadership positions are often not as high or what most of us believe them to be.

I dont think at all that you are pulling my leg. All indicators I see tell me that we are quietly returning back to "Absolute Power" in the hands of a few or put another way..."Royalty/Feudalism." And this is being done by crisis management and fear techniques. Not a new idea or practice.

Few people in their lives have ever known freedom and liberty. It usually does not last long. The counterfeiters soon enough return privily to take over.


Duh! Those that can, Do! Those that cant? Well! they write a book about it.


LOL LOL LOL...yes..somewhat ..agree. Those that do ..often have parasites attached to them for the free ride...hoping no one notices. The free riders are also often called government/governments...living well off someone elses production. I can take this much further and deeper but I think you get the meaing.


And I still dont get it why people act and think the whole of our societies has been anything more then a constant trial and error.


False altruism..from to much of a movie and television education. History itself is often a system of trial and error. People can seldom learn outside trail and error. They often think they are something brand new, sparkling and shiney. Original and never been seen before. Or put another way..they think they are sitting on the only one in town.

Education often does not help here but promotes much ignorance...and self indulgence..but not history...nor a historical perspective. I suspect that this is one reason so many people today know so little history. Someone does not want people to know the lessons of history ..particularly the truth of trial and error.

I know that very very seldom does a new product come out perfect the first time. There undergoes a period of adjustment...perfecting the product..trial and error..learning from trial and error ..mistakes or oversights in the original product run. Our automobiles today are the result of years and years of trial and error. Knowing this..it is very very seldom if ever that I buy a first run of anything knowing that improvements will be coming out soon enough because the first run fell short in certain arenas. People are similar in their own way ..unless they run into very very good teachers...and life lessons.

Oh..by the way...Males and Females today ..I believe are being carefully cultivated to be disfunctional...even ignorant while thinking they are sitting on the only one in town. I dont think this is accidental.

Well you get the idea I am certain.

Thanks for your post,
Orangetom

I'm a handsome man and for the last five years or so, I haven't even felt like having sex. I myself wonder why, but the best I've come up with is that I just don't want the hassle...its not even worth the effort imo.
I gotta go to a bar or some other social event, which inevitably costs time/money, just to find someone. If I do, I'll spend more money on drinks/dinner "getting to know eachother." All for the CHANCE I may get lucky.
Perhaps it'll take a few dates...of spending yet more of my time/money to get lucky. Sometimes it happens, sometimes not. The only thing I can count on with dating/sex is that my wallet will be lighter.

I've come to this conclusion about sex....it isn't worth the hassle...and here's why:

The simple fact is that prostitutes have wrecked any value women once had with that thing between their legs. Blame the "Women's Movement" for this. Why would I want to waste a hundred bucks on a date where I have a chance to get lucky when I can just call a better looking prostitute for the same amount who'll be whomever I want and its a sure thing?? Its a no brainer for guys.

You may respond with something like,"Eww, what about diseases!?" Well, take it from a bartender....the women in bars/clubs are NO better.

Once you realize that you can get sex without the hassle of chick flicks, the daily drama, debt, and a 50% divorce rate in which "the love of your life" takes half your stuff, the world becomes a better place.

Flame me, but this country was at its greatest when women took care of the home and children while men worked. Its the way its supposed to be. Women have gained nothing with their "movement" besides wrecking the family unit and making porn.

Now bring on the shills claiming I have mommy issues or something. The above is the truth as I see it, if it don't apply, let it fly

"The oldest profession" isn't dubbed thus because it's something new. Prostitution has been around since the dawn of man and I doubt it has 'all of a sudden' killed off men's desire to pursue women for sex.

I think you'll find it's more to do with the fact that the 'taboo' stigma associated with sexuality being so diminished in recent generations has put this aspect of the gender dynamic into stark perspective. That is, people are realising that sex forms the foundation of most male-female relationships and that this act alone is, frankly, not enough to sustain a fulfilling conjoinement ― 'mendokusai'.


Once you realize that you can get sex without the hassle of chick flicks, the daily drama, debt, and a 50% divorce rate in which "the love of your life" takes half your stuff, the world becomes a better place.

This can be applied to dating for sex, not only for transacting sex. In the age of the Internet, sex literally grows on trees (there are some weird fetishes out there). One is no longer limited to the small circle of friends and associates they themselves have. Today the World Wide Web is your oyster, so trawling dingy clubs and pubs really is the bastion of the desperado.


Flame me, but this country was at its greatest when women took care of the home and children while men worked.

Ironically, one the key reasons women, now, have been so carried away with the new-found opportunities they have. Perhaps if in these 'halcyon days' men did not treat their partners like baby machines / dish washing robots, there wouldn't this backlash against the 'traditional relationship' currently.


Its the way its supposed to be.

No such thing. There is no book of 'How It's Supposed To Be'.

Just to say in the title of your article, Love and Sex are two separate things, people confuse Lust with Love, and there are different kinds of Love. Brotherly Love, to say you Love peanut Butter, or you Love your wife, etc. In the Greek Language is more precise and uses different words for different kinds of Love, English is very vague on the word.
Just my pointless 2 cents

I never stated that the "oldest profession" was new, however, the basis of women having a say in ANYTHING is in fact a very recent development. Women have had social freedoms in only the last hundred years.

Please explain what would happen in say 1000BC if a woman didn't do as the man said? Sharia Law explains exactly what would happen. So comparing prostitutes through the ages is definitely NOT an argument against.

Furthermore, it is truly a MANS world. There's no denying that once women became involved in anything political or work related, this country started going down hill very fast.
In the fifties, women took care of the house and kids. The economy was good and everyone who wanted a livable wage, had it. In the sixties and the women's movement, you started seeing hippies and women's attitude on being a wife and mother took a back seat to porn, free love, and some equal pay crap. Just forty years after that, we've arrived at Lady Gaga and Mily Cyrus twerking old men and animal on stage. Thereby setting the stage for the next generation of women to be worse.

It's a fact, coming from a man who has discussed women every day for 30 years to other men that the power women once had over men via their cooch is not possible with the influx of hookers willing to give it up at a fraction of the cost of a date. It's fact, not conjecture.

You're entitled to your opinions on the matter, but you're not able to produce your own facts to back them up. Thanks for playing.

The root of the problem is males haven't learned how to connect. There is always one guy at the top of chain, currently in the USA (Booyaka Bananaman!) who has The One True Dick and all males have to acknowledge that to eachother and all the women have to understand this. Only then can the One True Dick become complete and one with The Universe and that is when He can instruct His Female to become the One True Pussy of The Universe and together they can conquer all life everywhere anytime.

Dream on Dick Man and Pussy Woman, you'll never make me gay even if you convince me you can make me your One Dick and my One Pussy is out there somewhere waiting for me to eat the alien cake, too bad I can't go to your homeworld to verify you and your cake truly exist.

Disregard the wolf thing. The man is to the wolf what the wolf is to the Chihuahua, in fact more so and light years ahead, a wolf and a Chihuahua are practically the same thing compared to a man and a wolf, there would be no contest in terms of evolutionary status on this planet. But hey there is always a bigger fish in the sea, even if that sea is made of stars. But yes smart Eskimos, killing of there prospective competition, that or putting them to work pulling there sleds. Some people would call that symbiosis, but if the dogs could talk they would complain that there not getting paid enough, and would probably go on strike.




Oh..by the way...Males and Females today ..I believe are being carefully cultivated to be disfunctional...even ignorant while thinking they are sitting on the only one in town. I dont think this is accidental.

Well dysfunctional people buy more useless junk, which helps run our consumer society, and there generally are more easily corralled despite there better judgments. Also I am not familiar with the "sitting on the only one in town" term. But I sort of get it, kind of, but not really, what your talking about on that part.

Just to get sex you have to play a fake manly or female role. They have robot lovers and stuff like that. They are fed up with the unnatural made up gender roles.
