China Builds First Sex Theme Park

Love Land will include sculptures of naked humans, giant genitalia

China is building what is billed as its first sex theme park, aimed at improving both the sex education and the sex life of its visitors.

Due to open in Chongqing in October, Love Land will include displays of giant genitalia, naked bodies and an exhibition on the history of sex.

The park will also offer sex technique workshops and safe-sex methods.

Among the attractions is a giant rotating statue of the lower part of a nearly naked woman.

"Sex is a taboo subject in China but people really need to have more access to information about it," the park's manager, Lu Xiaoqing told the China Daily state newspaper.

"We are building the park for the good of the public. I have found that the majority of people support my idea, but I have to pay attention and not make the park look vulgar and nasty."

He was inspired to build the park after a visit to South Korea's popular sex theme park in Jeju.

Critics say Love Land is a vulgar concept, and that the Chinese people are not ready to talk publicly about sex.

"These things are too exposed," Liu Daiwei, a Chongqing policewoman, was quoted as saying by the China Daily.

"I will feel uncomfortable to look at them when other people are around."


Nice! Anyone want to visit??!

What a silly thing to build in China of all places! If it's a taboo subject, who's really going to go there? Tourists?

It is an interesting contradiction but I won't be surprised if it is successful. Although talking about sex is taboo, I am amazed with the number of small (very small) sex shops around where I live, some even within apartment complexes.
These places apparently sell videos and "accessories" and must do OK business because they are so abundant. I assume the same would apply to other cities in China as well.

Hmmm. I had no idea! Maybe the park will do alright then.

The entire sex theme park was torn down by local officials two weeks ago. It was in all of the local papers and news websites.

There is a sex museum in Suzhou it's known as first one of it's type in China. It displays many satuts and tools used in many times. Even It displays some tools used by nun. There is a big status of a man locking up all his body except his pennis and said down: "Every part of body can be locked except this" LOL!..
I like to post some of the phtos but it's unallowed and there are many minors.
