Chinese screw sex theme park

'Vulgar' Love Land demolished

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

The good burghers of Chongqing will not now be able to enjoy the delights of China's first sex theme park, since the powers that be have demolished it before it even opened its legs for business.

According to the BBC, "Love Land" would have wowed the crowds with "giant genitalia, naked bodies and an exhibition on the history of sex" and, most promisingly, "a giant rotating statue of the lower part of a nearly naked woman".

Sadly for aficionados of enormous rotating semi-clad female anatomy, local officials slammed the scheme as "vulgar, ill-minded and misleading" and claimed manager Lu Xiaoqing was "interested only in profiting from sensationalism".

Love Land was due to open in October, and before his dream of enlightening his fellow comrades bit the dust, Lu told China Daily: "Sex is a taboo subject in China but people really need to have more access to information about it.

"We are building the park for the good of the public. 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." ®
