Jeju Island is famous for its beaches and scenic landscape, but if you want to visit something unique and quirky place in Jeju, no doubt that I would suggest this theme park called LOVELAND. At first, I have the slightest idea about Loveland, I know it’s a sculpture theme park where it displays some sculptures which suggests sensuality and eroticism. However, when our tour guide explained a little bit about Jeju Loveland while on our way to the park, it aroused me…… I mean, my interest as a tourist.

Apparently, this theme park was built way back 2004 by the graduates of Hongik University. The reason why they created this park was to help educate newly married couples. Since Jeju Island is a primary destination for honeymooners, the genius students of Hongik University created a total of 140 sculptures to help the couple warm up a little bit and learn something out of the sculptures displayed in the park. Supposedly, the theme park should expose the visitors into the world of sex. This will help couples, especially those marriages who were arranged by parents, to become comfortable with each other when it comes to sex.

I have images running on my mind while our tour guide explained about the Loveland, but I still believe that Korea is a conservative country where the topic of sex is a taboo, so I did not expect that much. However, when we entered the Loveland park, Lo and Behold!!!! I was so speechless. Sculptures of male sex organs are standing everywhere, there’s a woman lying erotically in one part of the park and there’s a sculpture of female sex organ just waiting to be explored by anybody, it was indeed the most interesting tour I think I’ve ever did in South Korea.

But that was just in the entrance part, as we go deeper into the colorful park, everything became a head turner. The park has different parts showcasing different activities and themes relating to sex. I sighed a little bit because for me, the name LOVELAND is an understatement, I guess it’s just a subtle way of calling it PORNLAND because believe me or not, it’s a porn park.

I think what I like most is the part where it depicts different sexual culture. It shows the different types of lovemaking from different countries like Japan, Greece, etc. It’s not as visual as other sculptures in the park but I like it because it shows that sex is not just all about the carnal pleasure of human but it also involves feeling and romance. It also shows how lovemaking differs from each country and how the culture, beliefs and traditions played a vital role in this sacred activity.

Unfortunately, during the half part of our tour at Loveland, the rain pours, good thing they also have indoor museum inside the park. We went to check what’s inside the museum, there were collections of videos about sex education, different dioramas of sex activities at home, sculptures of different sizes and shapes of penis and whatnot. There are also sex toys and some things on sale to enhance sexual activity with your partner.
