Bob Brady of PureLandMountain blog -- see sidebar -- tells us young Japanese are losing interest in sex. Furthermore he points out that the youth fads of Japan tend to be the canaries indicating the toxicity of the atmosphere in the world. I can't be alarmed to the extent of worrying that the world population will be in danger. We're racing as a population toward unprecedented and quite dangerous numbers so a bit of falling off in the procreation area would not be a bad thing.
But Bob was not talking about procreation, he was talking about interest in the joys of sex. The photo he posted of the pillow embracing the girl and another at the end of the blog with a pillow shaped like the lap of a kneeling man suggest the young still want some cuddling. I, for one, find those pillows deeply sad. The warmth of human body cannot be replaced by a bit of batting inside a pillow form.
On a slightly different note, Ronni Barrett recently posted about the joys of a 60-something woman looking at naked men's bums and had a video to prove her point and a good many comments in agreement. So maybe the enjoyment of sex as an idea, a fantasy that brings a smile, a present reality as well, has shifted to the increasingly large senior population. We pre- or early-baby boomers were adolescents at a time when sex was a tabu and contraception not readily available. What you must long for and deny yourself until certain conditions are met [like marriage back in those days] retains strength in our memories that apparently these young people will never understand. No, I'm not going to say that's sad but the cliche we often repeat, "youth is wasted on the young" seems to be truer and truer.
