Yup.Surprisingly, it is still a big taboo in Japan.
In fact, I think sex in general is still a taboo. I think that's why Japanese people including myself are not sexually active at all.
There was actually quite an interesting article
that I was reading in the the observer a few week's back regarding Japan's general lack of people getting it on with one another. It's mildly funny how this can be the case yet from the outside looking in Japan gives the impression that it's equally, if not more perverse then other countries, but then again it's almost impossible to judge a country based on it's output or based upon the experiences and stories of others.
Yeah, I actually read that same article once before as well.
While the article is spot on that fact that women losing their chances of getting promotion after getting married; I think there are some other factors.
For one thing, Japanese people don't move out after high school. I know it is normal in the States, and I'm assuming also most of Europe, for the kid to leave his or her home after becoming an adult; in Japan though, it is normal (and often even encouraged) to stay at home until you get married.
But the problem with that is, it kind of makes it impossible to like, bring home a guy or girl at night to bone. Not only that, but because many Japanese people live in small apartments or old houses; they often usually share and sleep on the floor (Tatami
) with either their siblings or parents.
So how are you ever going to find someone to marry if you can't bone them first? Sure you could get motels; but that just adds another obstacle.
I also think there is generally less time to date as well. While I think Americans workers work just as hard as Japanese workers in terms of productivity; I feel like Japanese students are busier in their day to day life in contrast to American students in both high school and college. I feel like Japanese people just miss their prime years of boning.
But yeah, I think generally Japanese people are just as preserve as everyone else. It is not like there is any race that is more or less interested in sex. They may say "they are not interested," but they're just lying. Everyone wants to bone.
