Sex Crisis in Japan?

A few days ago, I was reading a very interesting post, about Tokyo’s Salon Erotique, at Pop Japan (the post is in Greek, but you can watch the videos). Having been at a sex shop in Tokyo, having seen what these people are capable of producing, and with a little help from the forementioned post, I decided to spend a fair portion of my next trip’s budget in such novelties (it’s the collector in me speaking, not the sex pervert, honestly 😛 ).

It seems however that all is not going well. The otaku sex industry (ie sex-related stuff for those who actually don’t get any sex) is going through a crisis. You don’t believe me? Take a look at the data Yano Research Institute provides for 2007 and you’ll see I’m right. Maid or cosplay related services face a 18.6 % decrease! If that is not a tragedy, what is?

Now, economics, is not my strong point, but this much I know: If there is limited demand for a product, it becomes cheaper. Hmmm, could this mean?… Yes! More for me! Ha!

    Does that mean that otakus are actually, gasp! having real sex and thus no longer need the replacement?

    That could only mean the end of the world…

    Seriously, how could you get a nosebleed if you are having sex?
