What is Causing Japan’s Baby Shortage?

June 23, 2006 at 12:49 am Leave a comment

Last year Japan's fertility rate fell to an all time low.  Being a modern, developed nation, they promptly performed a survey to determine the cause of the problem.  They discovered that people weren't having as many babies because people weren't having that much sex.

                             Well, there's your problem right there

Dr. Kunio Kitamura, director of the Japan Family Planning Association, offers a solution.  Kitamura's advice? Couples should talk to each other.  Given that 44% of the people who weren't having much sex complained  that having a relationship with the opposite gender was "very tiresome" or "tiresome", I am not sure that is sound advice.

Maybe he should have mentioned alcohol.
