More Than 50 Percent Of Japanese Married Couples Not Having Sex

TOKYO (UPI) — More than half of Japanese married couples say they would classify their marriages as sexless, a survey found.

The poll, conducted by Sagami Rubber Industries Co. in January and released Thursday, found 55.2 percent of married couples said they think they are generally classified as sexless, The Asahi Shimbun reported.

About 29 percent of unmarried respondents said they think they are in a sexless relationship.

The pollster said on average, married couples have sex about 1.7 times a month, while unmarried couples have sex about 4.1 times per month.

Common reasons given as to why respondents felt they had sex less frequently included that a “partner does not feel like having sex” and that the couples do not have much “chance” to fit sex into their daily schedules.

The online survey received 14,100 responses from men and women ages 20-69. No margin of error was reported.
