What's it about? In the Land of the Rising Sun, love and relationships are in danger. A quarter of all Japanese people aged 30 to 40 are virgins and 50% of the population admits to not having sex regularly. Unsurprisingly, this has led to birth rates plummeting, and 30% of Japan's population could disappear by 2060. What are the reasons for this detachment from the world of love and sex? Tough jobs, stress, and money problems don't exactly provide the ideal environment to find love. The country has developed a unique industry from this phenomenon, starting the trend of "solo weddings", where young women in wedding dresses pose in front of the camera for their big day...except, they're not actually marrying anyone else; they're marrying themselves. Paradoxically, Japan is also one of the largest porn producers in the world with many men seeming to prefer their manga heroines over women their age. As Japanese men and women slowly lose their skills of social interaction and connection, instructional courses are flourishing across the country teaching the art of seduction.
