The following picture is a school of Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, in which 25 people from 13 to 14 years old were gathered and talking about sex. Children have an awkward atmosphere, some playing with red claws and fiddling with mobile phones. When the topic about masturbation turns into a topic, the boy laughs, and the girl who was on the other side and got stuck with her with her hands also begins to laugh at the mouth while starting to laugh, the 29-year-old male instructor says, "No problem with laughing" We talk about troublesome things.

In the early 1970s, one woman was born with two children in Denmark, but now there is no birth rate enough to keep the population. Also not only in Denmark, aging is progressing globally. Japan is already faced with the problem of birth rate, adult diapers are selling for diapers for children.

There is no consensus on the impact of demographics. Some people consider the population problem to be a natural maturity of a highly developed society, others see disasters. However, as a matter of fact, the two burdens, less workers and many retired people, are burdensome labor to continue to support society. Young people are abandoned to become parents due to the high unemployment rate, and a decline in the birthrate leads to shortage of workers and a negative loop is born.
However, there are many people who demonstrate creativity and do various initiatives in Denmark even if there is social unrest. Some priests wrote enthusiastic documents of sex and eroticism with large headlines, while some entrepreneurs created dating sites to support childbirth. There were travel agencies that carried out a campaign focusing on hotels in Paris for young couple, with the question "Can sex save the future of Denmark" as "to do more on holidays in Denmark"? .
