No sex please, we're Chinese . . .
China sex theme park comes to abrupt end
BEIJING, May 18 – China’s first sexually explicit theme park was torn down before it even started, after an outcry from officials, a Chinese newspaper reported on Monday.
Love Land, set to open in October in the southwestern city of Chongqing, featured exhibits on sexual history and how-to workshops, the China Daily newspaper reported last week.
A picture of the park entrance showed a signboard with the park’s name straddled by a giant pair of women’s legs topped by a red thong.
But the plans left Chongqing officials red-faced. They ordered the park torn down over the weekend, the China Daily reported.
Officials called the planned park “vulgar, ill-minded and misleading”, said the paper. Many Chinese citizens apparently agreed.
The park had drawn controversy on the Internet, with some calling it too much, even for fast-living Chongqing, while others praised it as a step forward for sexual candour. – Reuters
FFS says: Me is quite frankly speechless over this article.
What was the developer of this project thinking? Must have thought a greased palm or two would have allowed him to build this ill-advised theme park.
Me is no prude but even by Chinaman standards, this is crass beyond belief. Look at the red thongs in the pix la, fer fook's sake.
As fer the outcry, a country with over a billion pair of mata sepet needs no lessons in bonking me thinks.
ps: Always good to start the week with a hearty chuckle & look forward to reading yer comments.
