Some Japanese men too shy to lose virginity
About 15% of Japanese men have never had sex.
The men, aged between 30 and 40, feared being laughed at by women who are generally more sexually experienced.
A professor from Japans Meiji University said Japanese women had become more sexually active than men in the last decade.
Some of them were even below 20 years old.
This resulted in men preferring to remain as virgins.
He said many men with limited sexual knowledge felt inferior and did not dare pursue women.
This subsequently has lead to many of them remaining unmarried and old-aged virgins.
