A new survey reveals young Japanese people aren't having sex.
The survey conducted by the Japan Association for Sex Education that asked questions about the sexual habits and dating practises of female college students, found that almost 40 percent women confessed to being virgins, News.com.au reported.
National Institute of Population and Social Security Research revealed that 61 percent of unmarried men and 49 percent of women, aged 18-34, are not in any kind of relationship, an increase of nearly 10 percent from 5 years earlier.
A separate study conducted by Japan Crush found that 30 percent of unmarried men had never had a relationship with a woman at all.
According to experts, less job security, economic uncertainty and women's conservative views at home and workplace were partially to blame for decrease in singles looking for love.
