is as good as a tenth of the Japanese men between the ages of 35 and 39 still a virgin. This is the result of a study conducted at the University of Tokyo, which was published in the journal “BMC Public Health”. The scientists evaluated the results of seven surveys, each of which is between 11,000 and 18,000 people have participated. Were carried out the surveys from the Japanese National Institute for population and social research from 1992 to 2015. The result: In 2015, 8.9 percent of the heterosexual women and 9.5 percent of heterosexual men between 35 and 39 years of age, to have no sexual experiences.

between The ages of 18 and 34 had 42 percent of men and 44.2 percent of women still not have sex.

Japanese researchers found in their study, a connection between virginity and income. “Hetero-sexual inexperience seems to be at least partially a socio-economic Problem for men,” said Cyrus Ghaznavi, the main author of the study, the British “Independent”. Men with low incomes are up to 20 times more frequently young women had considered their gender. Someone who has a permanent full-time employment and in a million-the city lives, has, however, more frequent sexual intercourse.

In women’s income plays no role

In women, the researchers were unable to determine this connection. Women with low income, according to the study, more likely to have Sex than men who earn the same amount of money. The researchers explain that women who are married, are more likely to have Sex. Married women were often Housewives without an income of their own.

Regardless of what is the cause of virginity, stress the authors of the study: “Sexual inactivity, or ignorance, whether voluntary or not, should not be ridiculed.” Further research on the reasons for sexual inactivity were needed, so Peter Ueda, one of the leading authors of the study.
