Brazil is set to become home to the world's first erotic theme park,Erotikaland. The theme park, which is due to open to the public in 2018, will reportedly feature genitalia-shaped bumper cars, aphrodisiac-selling snack bars, and even a 7-D theatre with vibrating seats.

However, authorities fear that such an unusual place of entertainment might earn the location the notorious title of "the capital of sex". In a report in Daily Record, entrepreneur Mauro Morata, who is in charge of the project admitted, "This won't be a place for nuns, but it's not like we're trying to recreate Sodom and Gomorrah."

While the idea is to create an adult-only theme park, Morata clarified that sex won't be allowed within the premises of ErotikaLand, which is a two-hour drive away from the city of Sao Paulo. "If attendees want to take things to another level, they can go to a nearby motel — which we will operate," he added.

Even before the project is complete, it has become an object of scrutiny over public display of sexuality in Brazil, a place known for its scantily-dressed Carnival dancers. However, the investors are pushing for the project with their argument that the theme park is a healthy approach towards sex and visitors can also take a tour of a museum to explore the history of sexuality.

Morata tried to ease public concern by mentioning that the park will be built at a considerable distance from the city limits. He even argued that such a project would be beneficial for the economy as well — 250 new jobs and $100 (£69) per ticket. The park's infrastructure will supposedly include a "train of pleasure", a "sex playground", and a nudist pool with employees encouraging the use of condoms. While it is a highly ambitious project, sex still seems to be off-limit for the world's first erotic theme park.
