Willingness and availability are all that is required for having sex. It is difficult for any partner to outperform the internet as far as availability. My opinion is the internet could actually aid people who are looking for a partner and definitely it encourages written communication skills. I wouldn't be pointing a finger at the internet except in the fact that it may be used as a tool by people to try and generate income more than promote fostering relationships.

Stimulation overload.

Interesting quote.

My two-cents: Japanese women (mostly college students) I've met OUTSIDE of Japan are buck-wild and ready to go with just about anyone (Just ask any bus driver in Guam);

however, when they return to Japan they go back to their old, anti-social selves. It's not just "chat-to-sex" communication skills, but communication skills in general that are deteriorating. It's the culture, IMHO.

BTW Mr. Kitamura, people look at X-rated media and still have meaningful relationships and healthy sex lives. It sounds like he's whinging about how "めんどうくさい" sex and his job is.

wouldn't this example suggest more that this has to do with the cultural expectations placed on women, rather than anything else? you could say that their rather... promiscuous behaviour is just the genie getting let out of the bottle after an obviously prolonged period...
