Mitsuyo Ohta, 45, the wife of comedian Hikaru Ohta, 44, and president of the agency representing the comedy duo “Bakusho Mondai,” laughs at the media attention she’s getting over her public statement about her “sexless” marriage.
Mitsuyo married Hikaru in 1990. The comedian and his partner were struggling in their career, and it was Mitsuyo who established the agency Titan in 1993. It is generally accepted that the comedians’ popularity skyrocketed owing to her tireless and often relentless efforts as president and head of sales.
In late August, Mistuyo was a guest speaker at a film preview on the theme of women’s life and love. One character was in a sexless marriage, about which Mitsuyo commented offhand, “Actually, we’re sexless too.” The tabloid media immediately went into overdrive.
Responding to Shukan Post’s interview, Mistuyo answered casually, “We’re both exhausted by the time we get home at night. My husband is energetic on screen, but he is completely wiped out at home. He may work through the night on occasion, so there’s no space for sex in that kind of life.”
She was pretty candid about admitting that she couldn’t remember the last time she was intimate with her comedian-husband. She had fertility treatments several years ago, which yielded no results. “In view of my age and the work load, I realize it’s difficult, but I haven’t completely given up. I guess my husband will have to try harder in more ways than one.”© Japan Today
