China's first sex theme park, aimed at improving both the sex education and the sex life of its visitors, has been torn down before it even opened.
The owners were "interested only in profiting from sensationalism," one official said.
Due to open in Chongqing in October, Love Land was to have included displays of giant genitalia, naked bodies and an exhibition on the history of sex.
The officials called the planned park "vulgar, ill-minded and misleading".
"Sex is a taboo subject in China but people really need to have more access to information about it," the park's manager, Lu Xiaoqing said before the park was demolished. "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."
