It was recently reported that, there was a high rate of virgins in Japan and that the Japanese government was literally begging its citizens to have sex and start their families, due to a declining population in the country.
The story has taken a new turn as Japanese men are now playing with dolls to help them find wives and be good fathers.
In 2010, the government launched the Ikumen Project, a campaign meant to teach single men the art of fatherhood and help them find wives. It is to encourage men to re-enter the dating pool by showing them how rewarding fatherhood can be.
The all-male course includes instruction on bathing and changing babies, and provides a simulation of what life is like as a pregnant woman.
“Matchmaking agencies can advertise such men as having ‘extra value,’ by letting potential partners know he will support the marriage,” Reuters reported
A new survey of people 18 to 34 years old in Japan found almost 70% of unmarried men and 60% of unmarried women aren’t in a romantic relationship.
That is truly alarming!
