Amusement parks are an important part of summer’s legacy of awesome. These pockets of fun and fried food offer an even further escape from the the reality of working and responsibility.

After the jump, some amusement park trivia to amuse you. Sorry, had to go for the pun. Keep reading »

Chinese Theme Park Promotes Pirates Of The Carribean Ride With Porn Movie Poster

In Xiamen, China, an amusement park used a porn movie poster to promote its family-friendly Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Rather than using movie posters related to “Pirates of the Caribbean,” starring Johnny Depp, someone used a poster for “Pirates,” an X-rated movie starring Jesse Jane and Evan Stone, instead. “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” was nominated for five Academy Awards. “Pirates” won an AVN Award for Best All-Girl Sex Scene. How a porn movie poster came to hang alongside real “Pirates of the Caribbean” promotional materials may forever remain a mystery, but it probably didn’t hurt that the “Pirates” movie poster chosen featured the comely, blond, and busty Jane.

No More Love For Love Land Theme Park

Chinese officials have shut down China’s first sex-themed amusement park before it could open. Love Land was supposed to open this October and inspire people in China to be more open about sex, a taboo subject there, and educate visitors about proper condom use and other sex related topics. But the theme park had the opposite effect. Love Land incensed officials in Chongqing, who were offended by the risque nature of the park and ordered its destruction. I guess being greeted by a giant pair of women’s legs in a red thong was a little too much for officials that aren’t even accustomed to public displays of affection. [NY Times] Keep reading »

What Happens At An Adult Theme Park?

Public discussion of sex is taboo in China, where even kissing your significant other in public is frowned upon. But the builders of an adult theme park are trying to change all that. Love Land will be China’s first sexually explicit theme park when it opens in October in the southwestern metropolis of Chongqing. But with the increase of swing clubs, burlesque shows, and easy-access to online porn, what exactly does an adult theme park have to offer? Not much. Guests will be greeted by a signboard bearing the park’s name straddled between a giant pair of women’s legs topped by a cheesy red thong. There are giant genitalia sculptures and butt sinks for hand washing. Love Land will feature exhibitions about sexual history and proper condom use, and it will host sex technique workshops. The park will help visitors “enjoy a more harmonious sex life,” according to Lu Xiaoqing, Love Land’s manager. “We are building the park for the good of the public,” he said. “Sex is a taboo subject in China but people really need to have more access to information about it.” China seems to be embarking on a sexual revolution. The Chinese government recently launched a sex education campaign with the goal to get people to seek STD and infertility treatment. However, Love Land sounds pretty boring for people who have been allowed to discuss sex in the open. It probably won’t be the tourist destination for foreigners seeking a bit of debauchery. For that, they’d have to head to Jamaica’s Hedonism resort. [Reuters] Keep reading »
