And Now It's Time For A NSFW Field Trip To Love Land

LoveLand is a South Korean sculpture park dedicated to sex, and is described by the park itself as "a place where sexually-oriented art and eroticism meet." They failed to note that certain portions of the park are actually quite creepy.

At Love Land, you can start with a kiss. Of course, the statue is derobed and is giving a puzzled sexyface, which adds a touch of creepiness. Also, I'd like to ask my mother and father, who read this site on the weekends, to turn back now, do not pass go, do not collect $200. And please say hello to the stork who dropped me off 28 years ago, because that bird is awesome. *fingers in ears* Lalala I can't hear you commenters lalalala!

There aren't any titles attached to any of these pictures, so I'm going to call this one "Futurama Porn." I'm also going to warn you guys that these get more graphic (and to some, perhaps, more disturbing) as we go on. Just a heads up.

This woman is not impressed with the giant masturbating lady beside her. Her expression says, "She's faking. Where's the concession stand?"

The park is meant to be a celebration of sexuality and a place for sex education, but this sculpture is just horrifying. A woman's body is half buried and a sign reading "high heel" stands next to it. It's incredibly disturbing objectification; I'm not sure what the focus on the heels as opposed to the woman is supposed to signify, but the whole thing creeps me out.

By contrast, I actually love this sculpture. The women seem happy, confident, and at ease with their bodies and their sexuality.

I think this is supposed to be Poseidon or some such, as the action is taking place on a wave, which I'd imagine is the kind of thing Poseidon would say if MTV Cribs ever visited his home. "This is the ocean, where the magic happens." The visitor is unimpressed. Perhaps sea statue porn is a tough sell?

Here, a man is objectified. He is no head, but he's still, um, very happy to see you.

Keeping with the objectification theme, here a torso and headless woman's vagina is shown as a box. "Subtle" is not on the radar at Love Land.

Men seem to have a physical advantage on women at the park, as seen here. I originally interpreted this as a symbol of power or control, though an astute commenter has changed my mind a bit.

I can't even, you guys. I think she's feeding something to a magical vagina oyster in the sea. I feel like Enya's "Sail Away" plays repeatedly while this happens, and eventually the magical vagina clam is going to rebel, Audrey II style, and destroy everyone.

One of the few times a woman is depicting as being in control is this sculpture, which, judging by the reaction of the crowd, is meant to be played for laughs. It's disturbing in that the only time a woman is in control, from what I saw of the park, the man with her looks horrified and victimized.

These three are big fans of Britney's new jam. Again, however, note that it's one man, two women. From the pictures I saw, there were few (if any) pictures of same sex couples, though in fairness those statues may not have been shown in the pictures that were available to me.

Legs in the air is a big theme; if the park is meant to be so educational, perhaps they should consider starting with, I don't know, what happens in the brain? Or the fact that people have brains? Or heads? Or torsos?

Then again, we do learn a few things about the Gingerbread Man that we never knew before.

And these women surely have the best Facebook profile picture of all time, no?

Overall, I'm not sure what to make of Love Land. As Dodai and Margaret reported earlier this year, Chinese officials shut down a spinoff Love Land park, planned for Chongqing, China, calling it "an evil influence on society." I'm not sure I'd go that far, though I find the objectification of women to be disturbing. Perhaps I'm missing something, but I couldn't shake the icky feeling these pictures gave me; particularly the ones of female legs shooting up from the ground, attached to nothing. I suppose I won't be visiting Love Land anytime soon; the park is supposed to be "humorous" and a celebration of sex and love, but women seem to be mindless parts manufactured simply to give men pleasure, and I don't need to go to South Korea to see that, as I currently get Comedy Central's Secret Girlfriend on my own stupid television set.
