Love Land, an "adult" theme park, opens in October in the city of Chongqing, China. The creator of the park claims people need more information about sex; guess what residents near the park think?
"These things are too exposed. I will feel uncomfortable looking at them when other people are around," says Liu Daiwei, a female police officer. She's most likely talking about the "giant revolving model of a woman's legs and lower torso, clad only in an unflattering crimson thong," which marks the sign, Love Land. According to the Guardian, a commenter on the popular Sina website said Chinese people did not treat sex as boldly as foreigners, adding: "These vulgar sex installations will only make people sick."
The park's manager, Lu Xiaoqing, tells Reuters that Love Land will help people "enjoy a harmonious sex life." He's happy that people are talking about the park, because that means they're talking about sex:
"It is quite normal to see so much discussion about it," he said. "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."
And he's not the only one who thinks that the Chinese could truly benefit from being more informed about sex. Li Yinhe, an expert on sexual attitudes, tells the Guardian: "I read a report saying in the west about 90% of women have experienced orgasm, but in China the number is only 28%."
But is a theme park the best way to insure women are being satisfied? Having seen pictures from the original Love Land, in South Korea — basically, sculptures of people engaging in intercourse — the idea seems a little… limp.
