Are young Japanese having less sex? The Celibacy Syndrome in Japan - clinical and cultural phenomenon in sexuality counselling or media theory? The implications for the sexual health professionals based on the quantitative study

Adjunct Prof. Dariusz Skowronski PhD

Introduction and Objectives: The celibacy syndrome is becoming a widely discussed issue, raising concerns over the future of Japan. A 2011 survey by the JNNIPSSR found that 61% of unmarried men and 49% of unmarried women aged 18–34 were not in any kind of romantic relationship. The JFPA found similar data that 45% of women aged 16–24 were not interested in sexual contact. However, there are claims that the phenomenon is media theory-coined to support the concept of “weird Japan”. Thus, the objective was to investigate the clinical and cultural aspects of celibacy syndrome among the Japanese and to identify areas of therapeutic interventions.
