In a country where talking openly about sex is considered taboo, the city of Chongqing is getting ready to open the first-ever sex theme park in the country.
China's Love Land is set to open this October but is already facing much opposition from conservatives.
The park will feature exhibits on sexual history, feature naked human sculptures, giant genitals throughout, and will also have a sex technique workshop.
According to the park's manager, Lu Xiaoqing, the park is said to help people "enjoy a harmonious sex life." Adding that "Sex is a taboo subject in China but people really need to have more access to information about it."
Seriously, maybe that'd stop a lot of underage kids from getting pregnant. Case in point, Jamie Lynn Spears and Bristol Palin.
As for the idea behind the park, turns out it was
stolen copied off Korea's Jeju island, which has a park called Loveland. But China's park is already doing its part to get the topic of sex out in the public with many people having mixed ideas about it.
Lu adds, "It is quite normal to see so much discussion about it. 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.
Wonder if they're going to consider adding some themed rides to the park. The Dildo Rocket Coaster? Or The Astro Glide Swings maybe?
