Sexlessness in Japan may spark a population crisis
Japan's dwindling population has got the country's planning association all worked up. With the fertility rate at dismal levels averaging at 1.25 children per woman, demographers are pressing the need of 2.1 children per woman to maintain the requisite population.

A survey conducted by the Family Planning Association revealed that 31 percent of the16- to 49-years-olds did not indulge in sex for over a month. There was no specific reason attributed to this abstinence from sex. And nearly 44% of the surveyed persons found that engaging and maintaining a sexually active relationship with a partner of the opposite sex was far too tiring.
