Brazilian Entrepreneurs Are Trying To Build An Erotic Theme Park

Trust one of the most sexually active nations in the world to dream up an erotic theme park. Yes, that’s right. A group of Brazilian investors who have cottoned onto the fact that sex, does in fact, sell are trying to put their money into the development of an adult-only theme park called ErotikaLand.

Located near the city of Piracicaba (around 2 hours from São Paulo), ErotikaLand is already ruffling feathers well before its projected opening in 2018.

The theme park has added fuel to the debate over public displays of sexuality in Brazil e.g. barely there bikinis, scantily clad Carnival dancers and short-stay love motels.

“We cannot be known as the capital of sex,” Matheus Erler, a member of the Christian Socialist Party who leads the Piracicaba City Council, told reporters. He said he was worried that the park would attract “debauched individuals.”

Mauro Morata, the businessman behind ErotikaLand has made it clear that the theme park will be built outside city limits and no, there won’t be any actual sex allowed on the premise (sorry, folks). Despite further objections from municipal leaders of surrounding areas, Morata is pressing on with the project in emphasising the economic benefits of ErotikaLand: more jobs and more money coming in.

It’s not all smut, either. Investors say ErotikaLand will promote a healthy approach to sex, condom use and the “sex playground” is PG, with a labyrinth, Ferris wheel and water slide. There will be, however, an erotic sculpture park, genitalia-shaped rides, a museum, and snack bar serving aphrodisiac dishes. The $100 admission fee will also include access to a “7D” cinema complete with vibrating seats, as well as to a “train of pleasure” with gogo boys and girls and a nudist pool.

“This won’t be a place for nuns, but it’s not like we’re trying to recreate Sodom and Gomorrah,” Mr. Morata said. “If attendees want to take things to another level, they can go to a nearby motel — which we will operate.” You have to cover all your bases, right?
