Japan's fertility rate stands up at 1.21 per family, far under the rate of 2.08 babies that's needed is for a stable human population.

As of March 2009, Japan's entire population stood up at just over 127 million, but that number is proposed to go down to 95 million by 2050. And if more drastic steps betray to enhance people to make love - and therefore children - then there will be a simple 47.7 million Japanese people at the twist of the succeeding century.

In respect to the study of 671 men and 869 women, published by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Social welfare, 35.1 per cent of men aged 16 to 19 told they are not concerned in or adverse to sex, more than double the 17.5 per cent of adult males in the old study in 2008.

"Obviously, the most significant ground for Japan's worsening birth rate is that citizenries are not having sex," Dr. Kunio Kitamura, head of the Japan Family Planning Association said.
