I’m Tired of Having Sex

This didn’t fit in with LAist stuff. It really is like Rivers Cuomo and Weezer were ahead of their time.

When “I’m Tired” came out in 1996, I wondered how anyone could be tired of sex. But I was 17 at the time, so of course I would think that.

But it looks like people in Japan have had it with sex and relationships according to The Guardian. I have to say that I completely identify.

The trouble of trimming and douching, not only the online courtship of hooking up makes masturbating with a dildo more appealing than dealing with that crap.

From the article:

Japan’s under-40s appear to be losing interest in conventional relationships. Millions aren’t even dating, and increasing numbers can’t be bothered with sex. For their government, “celibacy syndrome” is part of a looming national catastrophe. Japan already has one of the world’s lowest birth rates. Its population of 126 million, which has been shrinking for the past decade, is projected to plunge a further one-third by 2060.

Really, I’m not worried about it.
