The Japanese Association for Sex Education (JASE) conducted the survey, and the results showed a dramatic decrease from previous survey groups.

Every six years, JASE conducts this survey to assess the sexual awareness of Japan’s youth.

This most recent survey was conducted from October 2011 to February 2012, with almost 7,770 students from college to junior high involved as participants.

Since 1974, the percentage of young Japanese women having sex or those described as “sexually active” had constantly been increasing. The peak was in 2005 — almost 60% for university students and 30% for high school students. However, the results of the most recent survey showed only 47% for university students and 24% for high school students.

“Herbivore boys,” known in Japan as “conservative” boys, are also increasing in number. Sexually active male university students decreased from 60% to 54%; the numbers dropped from 27% to 15% for high school students.

Does the survey count sexual activity between human beins or sexual fantasies about anime characters, robots and tentacle monsters :-)
