Japan’s non-sexual “Herbivore” men seen thru Taiwan web video news

Both unflattering (Wimpus Japonica) and kind of complete animated video explaining Japan’s “herbivores,” the young men (perhaps 30%?) who are eschewing sex for domesticity, fashion, and the company of other well dressed young men.

The 1 minute 30 second video covers post-Bubble austerity, a new rejection of  hetero sexuality as consumption, Japan’s declining birth rate, and gender boundary crossing. (Via Mutant Frog Travelogue).
