  1. Default I guess this would be the best place to put this



    Have you guys seen this pineappleing condescending piece of pomegranate? I watched it all the way through just to get the best idea I could about how little taste most people have. All she did the entire time was make fun of people with 2D girlfriends, and honestly, she is a prime example of why 3DPD will never be the answer for myself or any of the people in the video.

    Hardly "the entire time". The bit with the otaku was only about 5 minutes, and then another 5-10 minutes talking about young Japanese men in a more generalized way as people who refuse to grow up.
    It is a bit biased in that the men shown were extreme while the women interviewed seemed far more mainstream, but all in all the show is not about that but about Japan's aging population problem in general. The title "no sex please" is mostly a teaser.

    Couldn't watch more than 3mins in.

    This sorta stuff is the reason why I prefer fictional media over non-fiction. They're both equally full of pomegranate but at least one doesn't pretend it isn't

    The entire thing was biased. Every time something she didn't like or was outside her comfort zone popped up, she got this pomegranatety look on her face that made me want to punch her, it was like a cross between disgust and pity. What's worse though was her tone; the entire video sounded like her talking to mentally handicapped children who had just done something wrong, even with the adults and seniors.

    Just the first minute or so, she laughs at a guy. I couldn't watch past it.

    More like the time-honored documentary tone of "look at these fascinating animals". She was talking about Japan, its people, and its culture, the same way David Attenborough speaks of penguins.

    Despite being one-sided at times and missing out on some key points I found the whole thing interesting. It is always fun to get an inside look on different countries.

    I'm sorry but I find nothing in this video 'offensive' or 'condescending', I didn't watch the entire thing but I think i've watched enough to get the point.
    She's trying to address a real problem many people are having in this age, and I think the reality of it all offends you more then anything else.

    Ask @MasPan, I'm sure his first hand knowledge of the country would be better than some brit who calls diapers "nappies."

    She was definitely condescending, but that doesn't make her wrong. She describes it as "deviant" behavior and I can't help but agree. Some parts were obviously more for entertainment and shock value than balanced news presentation, but that's hardly new.

    Japan's a pretty weird place as far as sex is concerned. In 90% of public places in Japan people are modest, reserved, polite, respectful, etc. Then you turn a corner and end up on a street lined with "soapy" massage parlors (a wet, soapy naked woman rubs her body all over you). Or you walk into a maid cafe, or DVD store...and all modesty goes out the window. DVD stores typically have no formal division between the porn section (and there's some pretty out there pomegranate) and mainstream DVDs, adult men openly leer at, attempt to pinch, etc the waitresses in maid cafes...

    Basically, my experience with Japan is that the part that would bother most Japanese people or appear strange to them isn't necessarily the perversion or "deviant" behavior, but the openness about it. For the digital girlfriend example, a lot of them openly take the "girl" on dates in public places. It's a culture with one of the most bizarre combinations of modesty and perversion, a heavy emphasis on responsibility and respect (a lot of which ties into having a successful and influential career).

    There's so much stress on career and establishing oneself, long work hours and work weeks (not as extensive as here in Korea, but 6 day work weeks at 10 hours a day seemed pretty common) that it's easy to see "normal" relationship/sex drives falling by the wayside or becoming confused or muddled. Compound that by a strong sense of modesty that could also skew reporting and it's pretty easy to come to the conclusion that Japanese people have less sex than the rest of the world, or at least Westerners. Again, this is my personal experience with Japan, specifically the Tokyo Bay area (Yokosuka, Yokohama, Tokyo) which is comparatively westernized and modern.
