1 in 10 Japanese adults in their 30s is a virgin: Study

Published

on

Around one in 10 Japanese in their thirties has never had heterosexual sex and the number of adults with no sexual experience is increasing, according to a new study based on national survey data.

Comparable data from other developed countries indicated that “Japanese adults tend to become sexually active later in life and that a substantially larger proportion remain heterosexually inexperienced into their thirties”, the authors said.

FINDINGS

The research is based on data from seven rounds of the National Fertility Survey of Japan, carried out between 1987 and 2015, which is administered by a unit overseen by the Japanese health ministry.

In 2015, 11.9 percent of women aged 30-34 and 12.7 percent of men in the same age group reported having had no heterosexual sexual experience, the data showed.

In the 35-39 age bracket, the figures were 8.9 percent for women and 9.5 percent for men.

In both age brackets, the number of self-reported virgins had increased by several percentage points from the earlier surveys conducted in 1987 or 1992.

Each round of the survey is administered to people aged 18-39 years old, and in total the researchers from the University of Tokyo found around a quarter of men and women in that demographic reported having never had heterosexual intercourse in 2015.

The survey data did not include information on same-sex intercourse.

But the authors said even assuming that five percent of respondents were engaged only in homosexual sex, “around one in twenty 30-39-year-old women and men … would still lack sexual experience.”

The study said Japan appears to be an outlier.

Data from the United States, for example, found just 1.9 percent of women aged 30-34 and 0.9 percent of women aged 35-39 reported no sexual partners of the opposite sex.

POPULATION DECLINE

The figures for American men were just 3.1 percent for those aged 30-34 and 1.4 percent for those between 35 and 39.

The results are likely to be cause for concern given Japan’s ongoing battle with population decline and a low fertility rate.

Eagle-eyed Kenyan has noted something interesting about this picture

Published

on

A sharp-sighted Kenyan on social media has noted something interesting about a picture from the awkward moment DP William Ruto met his archrivals ODM leader Raila Odinga and Industrialisation CS Peter Munya.

The three met on Monday during the official opening of the Kenya Trade Week and Expo 2019, Kenyatta International Convention Centre, Nairobi County.

Pictures shared on Dr Ruto’s social media show him sandwiched between Mr Odinga and Mr Munya.

The DP has publicly accused Mr Odinga of seeking to wreck Jubilee Party and Mr Munya of planning to assassinate him.

A video from the event shows the DP chatting with Mr Odinga and the CS at different times.

But what has caught the eye of one social media user, John Riaga was the number of water bottles placed in front of each leader.

In the pecking order, DP Ruto would ideally be the most senior leader on the table. But while Mr Odinga had three bottles of water, Dr Ruto has two and CS Munya one.

Mr Riaga shared his observation on his Facebook.

It attracted various comments from his friends.

Edward Ochieng said: “Donge I wish Kenyans could be creative in matters of development like in social media. We could have joined the league of G8 countries.”

Okumu Kennedy noted: “Ruto had the longest day sitting between Aman he attacks daily and another he accused of planning to kill him or assassinate him.”

Sharon Gerald quipped: “Ahahahahaha… Kumbe it’s that serious?! Mpaka maji?!”

Ken Arek said: “A bottle of water, two bottles of water and three bottles of water. Sasa wewe.”

Absalom Ochuka added: “Eyiii. Un keen to details…”

Bongo actress ‘makes it rain’ at media briefing – VIDEO

Published

on

Popular bongo actress Irene Uwoya on Monday caused a stampede at a media briefing in Dar es Salaam by bribing journalists with a rain of money.

Uwoya, flanked by other top bongo actors walked in late for the press conference at Hyatt Regency DSM.

She had convened the media briefing  to make an announcement on the launch of a new Tanzania movie service called Swahiliflix,  a new channel that intends to market and sell bongo movies online.

The official launch of the Swahiliflix is set for August 31 at Mlimani City Plaza in Dar es Salaam.

“Tarehe 31 ni siku ya kumbukumbu kwa wasanii sisi bongo movie, haijawahi kutokea hiyo kitu itakayotikea Mlimani City itaweka historia, itakuwa ni red carpet ya funga mwaka. Kwa hiyo ndugu zetu waandishi mjipange hata kwenye kuvaa mjipange. Msituangushe sasa mje masuti nini msije kama hivi tulivyozoea,” Uwoya urged them.

Uwoya also apologized to the journalists for keeping them waiting.

And as she stood to leave, Uwoya reached out in her hand bag, pulled out a bundle of cash and started throwing it towards the journalists.

She said its was a small incentive to appreciate their support.

“Na nisiwachoshe sana nimewaweka muda mrefu, swahiliflix ni mambo moto lazima tusalimiane na ndugu zetu waandishi wa habari, nawatuza na kitu kidogo.”

Journalists present shoved each other as they scrambled to grab the notes from the air.
