Officials on a Taiwanese tourist board, who are clearly convinced by the notion that sex sells, have revealed plans to build a sex-themed park to attract visitors.

The Romantic Boulevard park will be built on a 37-mile (60km) stretch of land along the country’s coast.

Unsurprisingly, attractions will not be for the faint hearted, and will include erotic sculptures of people and animals in sexual positions.

Those who appreciate a more vanilla representation of love can enjoy the heart-shaped arches, glass church and outdoor garden.

Plans for the park also include a "scenic area" where couples can take wedding portraits.

It is predicted the park will likely be modelled on the similarly explicit Love Land in Jeju, South Korea, which opened in 2004.


"We want people to fall in love with Taiwan, as well as fall in love while in Taiwan," Shih Chao-hui, the deputy director of Southwest Coast National Scenic Area Office, told the Wall Street Journal.

However, not everyone is enamoured by the proposal, with some locals and members of the central government Tourism Bureau expressing their concern that the park will damage Taiwan's reputation abroad.

But Shih told China Real Time said the public interest outweighs any potential controversy,

"The question should be, will the park generate business opportunities and we believe the answer is yes," Shih told China Real Time.

Officials are also hoping to open a hotel next to the park for lovers who might want to “turn their feelings into action" said Shih.
