(Newser) – China's revolutionary sex theme park has been crushed before it could even get off the ground, reports the BBC. Just as the world press was touting "Love Land" and its giant plastic genitalia and sexual technique workshops, outraged Chinese officials were demolishing the park that had been slated to open in October. The owners were "interested only in profiting from sensationalism," a government official told the China Daily today. The park is "vulgar, ill-minded, and misleading."

The manager of the park, which was being erected in Chongqing in southwest China, said it was intended for the "good of the public." Sex is a "taboo subject in China, and people really need to have more access to information about it," he added.
