So Ashley Madison expects continued high growth in the Japanese market.Currently, the country is ranked fifth in overall members, behind Brazil and the United States, but Biderman thinks Japan will move up the ranks.This matches the results of a national survey of 14,000 people by condom-maker Sagami, which found that 55 percent of married couples considered their relationship sexless.
That’s far ahead of everyone else: in the rest of the world only 52 percent of women and 60 percent of men take photographs of themselves having sex.
So, now maybe we know why Japanese tourists love carrying around their cameras so much.
The Kojiki, one of the classics of the Shinto religion, contains a remarkably bawdy interlude: The sun goddess is lured out of her cave another goddess performs an impromptu striptease before the other assembled deities and concludes by masturbating on stage.
The hoots and hollers and all the commotion bring the sun goddess out from the darkness, probably because she’s missing out on the fun.
This may account for Japanese fascination of taking taboo “non-edited” porn on their own initiative.
“Oh, that’s what it looks like,” may be the reaction for many home directors.
In the last year headlines about how celibacy is trending in Japan have gained attention around the world: “No sex please, we’re Japanese,” reports the BBC. This is a country where an estimated two trillion yen (.3 billion) are spent each year on the legal sex industry.
And now it looks like the land of the rising sun is also the land of rising adultery.
Paradoxically, the experience of online arranged adultery may have gained wider acceptance because of the long tradition of family- arranged marriages known as o-miai.
In practice these are arranged dates between a man and a woman who share common goals, looking to settle down, marry and have children.
It seems that Japanese people also don’t feel much guilt about their affairs: 8 percent of women and 19 percent of men throughout the world said in the survey that they felt bad about their adultery.
