Love Land, China’s first sex theme park, was shut before it even opened. Authorities found the displays such as a pair of giant legs topped with a red thong and large statues of genitalia offensive.

After the park hit the headlines last week, the officials in the southwestern city of Chongqing looked into the matter and called the bulldozers.

The park was inspired by South Korea's popular sex theme park in Jeju.

The following photos show a trip to Jeju Love Land in South Korea in January, 2007. A liberating surprise given the public conservatism in Korea. It was a lot of fun to see older Koreans turning cranks that made metal cut-out figures copulate and people of all ages laughing at penis sculptures.
