DVD Lets You Go on Virtual Dinner Date

For about $8, you can have a virtual date simply by watching a DVD. It’s called “Amateur Dinner Time - Let’s Eat Together." This DVD makes sense considering the population in Japan is slowly declining as increasing number of people are giving up marriage and sex (as known as "sekkusu shinai shokogun" or "celibacy syndrome"). And this product does indeed makes sense from both sociological and economically speaking -- by eliminating social anxiety associated with asking a girl out on a date and the responsibility of paying for dinner.
