Japanese Dating Culture and Social Norms

Australia's Dating Coach, Andrew Gung | Core Confidence Coaching Talks about the Japan Dating Culture and Social norms that fall into the dark side of Japan. The Japanese Culture tends to fantasize a lot of public and inappropriate sexual acts which in western society comes off quite disturbing and would definitely have legal consequences whereas in Japan, these types of behaviors just get the locals a 'slap on the wrist'. There are several reasons that lead to this culture in Japan, and I believe one of them being anime. When you look at a lot of anime, it has a lot of nudity and sexual acts portraying sexual assault and stalking as a common theme, which I believe has normalised behavior in society. I am not at all hating on Japan, I absolutely love the country, the food and the culture (for most part), it's simply making people aware that the country has quite a unique and different culture compared to other countries and so if travelling there simply be street smart and avoid any trouble, but know that if you are in any kind of danger, the Japanese police will MOST likely not help you.
