The New Japanese Man: “55.8% Have Never Even Dated”

dakimakura-otaku

Figures for the latest generation of Japanese to reach adulthood show them turning more herbivorous than ever, with 55.8% of 20-year-old men now apparently having no romantic experience whatsoever.

A coming-of-age day survey of young Japanese having just turned 20 found them lonelier than even before – some 80% of the men and 70% of the women had no partner.

The same survey taken in the year 2000 found approximately 50% of those asked had a partner, prompting much gleeful media speculation about the emasculated herbivorousness of the latest crop of degenerate youths, who may well “have problems communicating with the opposite sex,” as a result of all their time spent online or them refusing to buy cars or watch TV, perhaps.

Of those wretched young men with no partner, a mere 63.8% reported actually wanting one, the lowest figure since 2000 as well.

55.8% of men and 39% of women reported having had “not even one” partner, and 23% of men and 14.8% of women reported never having so much as an unrequited romantic interest.

As usual, harem masters may have been hogging all the action – 22.6% reported having had over 5 partners (whether in series or in parallel is mercifully not specified).

Most were unsurprisingly in no huge hurry to get married even if they could afford a partner – over 90% thought “under 30″ was an ideal time to get married, although women favoured 30-year-old men and men 25-year-old women.

Precocious wisdom or deviant herbivorousness was displayed by 19.6% of men who did not want to get married at all, and 20.5% of women, figures in line with recent years.

    "with 55.8% of 20-year-old men now apparently having no romantic experience whatsoever."

    Is that even odd, they're 20 FFS. They will likely have no real jobs, no full picture of goals in life and certainly in no rush to do anything.

    In related news, 55.8% of 20-year-old Japanese men have opted not to find out the hard way if there's any truth to the rumors of the cops' misandry.

    Japanese cop's misandry... Nothing new there, I guess. The system was like that for a very long time, pushing many innocent people to jail and even into suicide because of the pressure.

    That's why emancipation is such a great thing. Let the women do the work, don't worry about sex and enjoy your life with 2D. Yeah!

    The problem is, do you forgot about some female that trying to ban porn and hentai?

    It will get worst if guys decide to abandon the issue entirely, since it will get worst from here. Next thing you'll get arrest from be in a woman's sight..

    I was a virgin at 20, never had a girlfriend, never even kissed a girl. Things happened in a hurry once I turned 21... first date, first GF, first kiss, lost virginity, all within about three months.

    That's the funny thing about sex and relationships. They can come out of nowhere and then they can stop on a dime. These days I'm content with hentai and my hands, but the time I was with my GF was the happiest time of my life. It was the heartbreak after she dumped me that was the tough part. I'm not eager to go through that again. Plus if I had a GF I probably couldn't afford my mortgage as I'm just scraping by.

    Where I live (not Japan), everyone was already banging each other in early high school.

    I also knew several girls who got married at 18, to much older (and richer) guys.

    Seeing as Japanese women only see men as walking bank accounts, its little wonder that more and more men are deciding they're better off not getting involved with the parasitic organism known as women.

    Emancipation of women was probably the worst mistake mankind made in the last couple of hundred years. :-/

    From there it's just downhill.

    For real, if not for the victorian era emancipation of women, we'd be entitled to a 12 year old virgin bride that we could shape to be absolutely obedient and 100% dependent on us.

    I've read it, and holy crap that was insane. The feminist claim us the guy as sexist, but what those ladies did and their mentality is even worst.

    And its completely in tune with certain feminist blog I've read, they have the same insane gender bias, just they do a better job to mask their propaganda. And whenever I point that up, I suddenly get labeled as sexist and misogynist.

    This crap need to stop, and we need to be more strict and serious when dealing with these type of woman. No more white knighting and sweet talk, just smack them flat with logical argument whenever you notice these breed is around.

    I'm a 31 year old wizard. It's not all it's cracked up to be. I've never had a real job (I've worked on fan translations of mangos lawl), and all I do is play video games. I went to college and learned Japanese back in the day, just so I could play JRPGs in Japanese, LOL!

    Reply to Poster:

    Each date = experience points... real ones.
    Dating is sometimes a nervous thing for most guys. Players make it a game... Win some, lose some in which case - that is correct... you cannot LOSE the girl you never had.

    Here is a simple thing to keep in mind. If you ask a girl out and SHE says YES and does show up... then your chances of getting laid is 100%!!

    But as the date goes on, depending on your skill and hers, and expectations, etc... that likely-hood goes down. One stupid phrase can sink a date.

    Every failed date = Experience on WHAT NOT TO DO NEXT TIME. In the USA, there are local FREE "players groups' you can join... where they share info and tactics. You may say "why do that? Aren't they competition?" - no, in a typical large city of 1M+, there is plenty of tail for a dozen guys sharing crib notes.

    By knowing and learning from players... I get laid. Start off with OLDER women... ie: if you are a 25~30 year old virgin, go ahead and get a cougar... she'll teach you (35+) Older she is, more likely she'll jump your bone. Get your sexual experience up... and work your way to younger women.

    Why? Imagine... you're 30yrs old, a virgin and meet a girl you like who is 27 who is NOT a virgin... You'll suck as "when to kiss" and maybe a 10 second fuck.

    Then you'll learn which girls you'll like for a long-term relationship.

    I was once a semi-virgin into my early 30s, made a point to GET LAID. Learn social skills for shit I don't really care for. I sure as hell didn't why to die alone... and each year YOU get older and still a virgin, the harder its going to be to rid it.

    Oh yeah, many-if not ALL 3D women are a pain in the ass. They are ALL CRAZY (but so are us guys), so you want to find a girl that is compatible with you.

    So I did end up with a girl who is 13 years younger than me (I'm in my 40s) who is the mother of my kids and by luck and choice - she is still about 105lbs with a cute little body that I get to have sex with almost any time... or if she wants it from me.

    We snuggle together and watch Anime and some of her shows... when I'm sick, she takes care of me.

    3D is a pain in the ass... and there are dangerous paths. Some girls will EAT YOU and spit you out like a turd. Some will stalk you... yeah, they do get old, unlike 2D... but look in a mirror, you're not getting any younger. And until I got married, It was not unusual for me to date/bang girls in their 20s. I got some BDSM sex toys, I've done threesomes, I've fisted (vaginally) and done anal.

    And at this point... I'm in a loving relationship. Glad as HELL I didn't get earlier girls preggers or married.

    Good luck!

    Not wanting to get tied down into a relationship is not the same as not getting laid. But well done.

    8000? Try 2000 yen, for touch all you want and everything but full service with 2 young girls at a pinsaro. Or grope all you want at an oppai club for like 1000 yen.

    Some, maybe. But not all. Some of them just never try. That's a bigger problem than just 8000 yen a week can solve, let alone pretending that it's as easy as just going out on a date or two.

    Depends on the person. I see no reason why someone in a relationship wouldn't spend 8,000 yen. The problem seems to be with some of these people being unable to get a woman and vice versa, right?

    The difference is that nobody expects their plastic toys to reciprocate or do anything for the 8000 yen, and the expectations are met. Men often get far less from the real thing, especially the kind that wouldn't give the time of day to someone who can only spend 8000 yen a week on them.
