China opens sex theme park, closes said park
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.
He was inspired to build the park after a visit to South Korea’s popular sex theme park in Jeju.
By May 18 BBC was reporting that it had been demolished, and according to an Eastday report (thanks awflasher), it had been taken down by city officials on the 16th already.
There is something about this story that, I believe, represents some of the development happening in China: It’s driven by sheer entrepreneurial bravery, backed by non sequitar logic, and involves imitation.
