“Love Land,” a theme park with risqué exhibits was shut down before it even opened. Under construction in the city of Chongqing in China, the site was ordered by local officials last weekend to be dismantled.

Workers began dismantling the Love Land exhibits upon orders from local officials.

A reason was not given for shutting down the sex theme park; however, photographs of the adult-only attraction had been circulated on the Internet over the weekend, which prompted backlash from some of the population.

Exhibits included giant sized reproductions of male and female anatomy, dissertations on how the topic of sex is treated in various cultures, workshops, and a photography exhibition about the history of sex. The displays would also have included lessons on safe sex, according to the park manager.

Local officials must have been aware of the construction of the park (which was slated to open in October). However, it seems that the backlash proved too much to go ahead with opening this facility. Maybe next time!
