    Arrow promiscous youth and AIDS

    What do you think about this ? Newsweek published an article about how libertine Japanese youth really is. It's mind-boggling when you see the little precaution they take and how quickly AIDS could spread in this reputedly HIV safe country.
    Dangerous Liaisons

    According to a joint study by the University of California San Francisco and Hiroshima University, of 602 teens (age 15 to 19) surveyed in the Shibuya section of Tokyo recently, 43 percent said they keep five or more sex friends at a time. In a similar survey of 16-year-olds in two rural prefectures, 20 percent of boys and 18 percent of girls said they have at least five sex partners. gTo many young Japanese people, everything about sex is casual,h says Masako Ono-Kihara, a public-health expert at Hiroshima University School of Medicine. gGirls now share their boyfriends like theyfd share chips. Everyonefs hand is in the bag.h

    gCondoms are hard to sell in Japan right now because young adults refuse to use them,h

    Maybe, they should put a condom inside a chocolate toy. You could have tanks, bunnies, cats, fish, just like all the other miniture toy thingys that are so popular now.

    So would I.

    A friend died of Aids here in Japan. His final diaognosis was pnuemonia so that is what he officially died of. It's standard practice to use the "final" cause of death to use for news and such.

    I don't know where he contracted though. Possibly in the US.

    I didn't know he was positive until I saw the red bands at his funeral and the large amount of young men that clued me in.

    So, sorry I don't know more than what I wrote above.

    It's still a social stigma, not only in Japan...

    Yesterday, I saw a girl getting off the train at Roppongi. Her arms were so thin it couldn't be natural. It's probably AIDS. That's the first time I notice someone like this (in Japan).

    I was tested in the army. It's was a bit scary, although I haven't indulged in any risky adventures. Some less scrupulous friends of mine have postponed their tests for years.

    I think that the younger generation of the entire world treats sex as "the normal thing to do" and its become a way of life for them, the contraction of aids is a mere side effect, and is becoming more and more exceptable, where as us jiji's(hehe)find this totally unbeleivable that young people who par-take in these activities actually have no conscience and take no precautions against this real killer! its really there and its really a killer!

    Debs, I believe that young Westerners are more conscious of the risks they take. As often, Japanese tend not to think to much about their responsibilities (cf. absent fathers, selfish & irresponsible politicians, teen prostitution, salarymen sex-trips to Bangkok, irresponsible bank/company managers that put the whole economy in jeopardy, just to cite a few).

    here, here!

    Debs sorry you're a "baba" not a jiji. Jiji is for us men ;)

    Let's not forget the sell your panties and bras shops! New type of shop have a magic mirror where the freak can pick his girl. Then they go to a room where she drops here panties in front of the freak. This is like a proof of purchase and freshness you might say.
    I saw on a TV show:
    panties $80
    bra $90
    spit $70
    pee $80

    hmmm, not bad for a few minutes of waiting and a few minutes with a freak. Nothing was mentioned about pictures. That might be against the law or maybe that freak didn't want to spend more money.

    Glad you think so ;)

    Here's something a friend and I were discussing. Apparently during some meeting with leaders from around the world that gathered in Osaka (lol ... don't know what or when) the sex shops were shut down. During that time Rape spiked and fell off after the shops were re-opened.

    So, I guess that the services that service these weirdos do have a benefit.

    hmmm ...

    spit, yes, from the mouth. Just wonder if goobbers are sold too? (you know the ones you hack up from the throat)

    pee, hmm, we also say "number 1" or urine if you're at the hospital. If you like [oshiko or shiko] in Japanese.

    How do you say them? Wondering

    @aids
    another reason for which japanese people don't worry about aids probably is because they believe physicians and scientists will find the cure for it, in short term. i've seen such opinions, not only once, but many times...

    @pee
    gosh, that's so grosse! they really are some weirdos, perverts...

    @cop
    he's a 50-year-old 'jiji', for Christ sake... what is wrong about these people???

    @ cops
    A lot are getting arrested recently. Funny that they're doing something at all. My father-in-law was just saying tonight while drunk that most cops don't do squat.
    And he's a Civil Servant!

    What's wrong? There wives neglect them ;)

    @ pee
    slash? lol that's a new one for me. I'm orginally a New Yorker so I've got a great repetoire. ;)

    Yeah! me and somebody on that thread that Thomas posted saw the same show.

    @ aids
    hmmm ... probably much more simple. I'm clean and the guy is clean. No worries.

    @ aids
    Here you go. Just tonight I was watching a TV drama and the main girl character has aids, sleeps around with anybody but with her boyfriend mentions that she can't have non-protected sex (she said "raw" though) but yet nothing in the story mentioning that this is wrong or what not. The boyfriend was more put off by her adventures in porn and promiscious life style ;)

    wow!! thats scary stuff, I hope that this drama does not reflect real life, if so then a girl who does such a thing should be taken up on charges of wilful neglect of a deadly virus or something at least, attempted murder sounds a bit strong, but thats what it boils down too, (I think)
