THE RAPIDLY SETTING SUN:

Do Not Disturb: Sex is a hassle (MARK SCHREIBER, 3/02/08, The Japan Times)

“The Ice Age of Sex,” proclaims Shukan Asahi (March 7), has arrived.

The Japan Family Planning Association, which periodically surveys
young people, observed a marked decline in interest in sex from
around 1999.

Take males in their third year of middle school — an age when puberty
should be in full bloom. Males who said they desire sex plummeted,
from 86 percent in 1987 to 36.9 percent in 2005. For females in the
same age group, the figure peaked at 37 percent in 1993; in 2005 it
had declined to 22.6.
