Ever wonder about the Japanese and how their breakfast habits affect their sex-lives? Neither did we.

Apparently, Japanese teenagers who skip breakfast are more likely to have sex at a younger age than those who do have breakfast, reports Reuters, citing a study by the Japan Family Planning Association.

Teenagers who skip the meal have sex when they’re around 17.5 years old, while their breakfast-eating counterparts have sex when they’re 19.4 years old.

“The fact that people can’t eat breakfast may show something about their family environment,” said Kitamura. “Before blaming individuals for having sex at an early age, it may be necessary to look into the sort of homes they are from.”

The study also showed that teenagers who find their mothers annoying are more likely to have sex at a younger age.

The study surveyed 1,500 people in Japan, aged between 16 to 49 years old.

Kipp still doesn’t know what breakfast has to do with it.

    What breakfast has to do with it? Probably the idea that if a kid’s having breakfast in the morning, there’s someone at home who’s watching to make sure it’s wolfed down. Better family relationships, built around shared mealtimes etc. etc. At least that’s what I think the study is trying to hint at.

    What does sex mean?
    Isn’t it supposed to mean gender?

    It’s all about family bonding. Having the meals with the family promotes table discussions among parents and children. This results in more confident kids, kids striving to excel, and kids not wanting to upset their mamas and babas. This also relates to the American study about students who have meals with thier family members and their S.A.T. results.
