Monsta, you nailed it. The thing is its easy for you and I to see through the shit, but when your daughters are 16 and 17 and son is 13 its really hard to stop that message ruining them. GO's sense of pervasive evil holds here. Its not just about 'sex sells' advertising. It is Mass media illuminati programming.

Parents try and restrict tv hours to semi-safe stuff. Take x factor, or Idol talent quest series, that your daughter dreams of trying out for. Should be ok, yet getting toward the finals suddenly the female judges are wearing a dress showing the whole undersides of the tits (a recent mother herself) and the other wearing a S&M dominatrix outfit (another recent mother). They are adressing 13 year old contestants.  Kid contestants who must be thinking along the lines of Paul McCartney when he said of John Lennons album cover after the Beatles split, "He asked me what I thought and I said; Yeah John thats really great, like he wasnt standing there with his cock hanging out" in liverpudlian lilt. LOL

Notice how Janet jacksons "Wardrobe Malfunction" has become "The Reveal" a new and required obligatory part of any dance routine on Dancing with the  (former) Stars or So You Think You Can Dance Cry, then the rest is all simulated sex?

Then EVERY young fresh faced apple pie teen songstress seems to have it as a condition of contract that she will soon 'go off the rails' and/or up the amps in the sexual stakes to make softcore porn, and video hits comes with an M 15 plus rating at 9am on saturday morning :o.

I used to stamp some authority on what they would wear by threatening what I would wear myself to drop them off and get out and wave goodbye. Now Im not there, their mother has to threaten to wear the same stuff they want to wear. It should not be so hard.  :exp-angry:

Personally, I think it is the social equivalent of the same Cost-Benefit analysis I made after I got divorced.  All the problems and responsibilities that accrue as a RESULT of getting involved in a Relationship and then the RESULTS from Sex of having kids are GREATER than the BENEFITS you get from taking these things on.

Monsta said:

If I had to encourage a young horndog I would tell them any good sex is not worth it if most of the relationship is mediocre as those costs will always exceed the benefits. Rubbing one out aint so bad and people with their egos and pride simply make it seem worse than it is while bigging up sex.

sex is often overrated

You're turning Japanese. I really think so....

Sex Sells And The Japanese Are Buying

"Sex Sells And The Japanese Are Buying": A Look At Japan's Love Industry


Submitted by Tyler Durden on 10/23/2013 19:25 -0400


Tokyo, and the entire country of Japan, which the documentary below describes as "a place where socially awkward people gather and use money to resolve their communication problems", has a ticking demographic time-bomb: on one hand the population is getting so old that sales of adult diapers now exceed those for babies; on the other as the chart below courtesy of Mark Adomanis shows, the number of actual births each year has dropped to a record low.


The issue: young people in Japan just don't want or have any interest, in commitment to the other sex, nor do they seem to have any interest in procreating in a narrow sense, or sex in a broad one (a topic further pursued in "Why have young people in Japan stopped having sex"). In short:

    50% of Japanese women 18-34 are single
    More than 60% of Japanese men 18-34 are single

Whether it is the women's fault, described as "so infatuated with their careers that work trumps a boyfriend or husband", or men "a generation obsessed with virtual reality and so intimidated by real women that they prefer cyber girlfriends over real relationships" is unknown, and irrelevant.

There is another angle. As this documentary from Vice investigates, "sex sells and the Japanese are buying." The reason: Japan has a "seemingly infinite menu of relationship replacement services." And who really needs the hassle of a steady significant other when on one hand the gamma radiation levels keep creeping higher and higher by the day meaning the threat of a random mutant appendage emerging is no longer negligible, and on the other Abenomics is making everyone feel wealthier, even as everyone actual purchasing power implodes, leaving everyone but the 0.1% broke and starving.

Has Japanese society crossed the Rubicon into full devolution (and after watching the video below you will understand why), where cheap single-serving sexual thrills and intimacy replacement have overtaken the household unit as the hub of society?

The reality is that unless something drastically changes between the demographic singularity the country is rapidly headed toward, the Fukushima disaster which hits new spilled radioactivity records on a daily basis, and the emotional detachment that the locals (don't) feel toward each other, in a few years none of this will matter.

Worst of all: Japan is merely the test tube baby, pardon the pun, for the rest of the insolvent "developed" world. What happens in Japan, is coming to a broke centrally-planned country near you.

For all this and much more (those who want to skip the autistic Japanese parts and go straight to the Yakuza meeting, proceed to 9 minutes into the clip) watch the Vice clip below.

Did anyone else watch this video?  It is absolutely bizarre.  The Japanese have officially gone insane.

There's just no accounting for tastes.

Who could pass up a chance to pay a stranger to clean your ears with Q-tips?

@ $90 a eustachian tube?  I'll pass.

The Japanese economy is going down the toilet and you have 20-something women dropping $100 on some Gigolo just to talk to him over drinks?  Said Gigolo is pulling in $800K/year with this Gig?  This guy must be some kind of genius at feeding lines to women.

Back in the Wall Street days I had a buddy who liked to frequent high end Strip Clubs on the Upper East Side.  I went out with him a few times.  The girls were FABULOUS looking, pole danced buck naked and for $100 would do a lap dance on you.  A regular like my friend could go upstairs for an hour for around $500 and go the full 9 yards.  You actually got some value here for your money.

These folks are fucking renting out Anime DOLLS to fuck for an hour!  Probably at close to the price paid at a top NY Strip club for the REAL McCoy!

They have seriously gone insane on the social and cultural level.  Morris Berman thinks Amerikans are Fucked Up and the Japanese have good cultural values in comparison.  Morris must have missed this on his last Japan trip.

Considering the lengths the guy in the video had to go to to earn the trust of the Yakuza to even get himself in the (uncomfortable-appearing) position above, coupled with Berman's relative age, the proposition that Berman missed these clubs is the Lock Of The Week.

Of course their culture is insane, as is ours; expressions of that insanity just manifest differently.

The Yakuza Dudes were only necessary for the "illegal" action at the end.

The more disturbing stuff like the Cuddle Rooms where you get your ears cleaned and No-Sex clubs where you pay to chat with members of the opposite sex are LEGAL and accessible to any Cultural Historian.  Morris sees what he wants to see.

Well I'll be damned. No kidding. Could be a lot of that going around, yes?

I suspect a 68 year old man would be more interested in an adult diaper change than having his ears cleaned, but what do I know?

FWIW, I cannot IMAGINE letting another human being near my ears with a q-tip.
