Piccadilly Circus To Be 'Sexed Up'?

There are some stories going around today that a "multimillion dollar sexual 'theme park" is due to be opened near Piccadilly Circus.

Now what exactly would a 'sexual theme park' entail we here you ask. Variations on Alton Towers' Corkscrew ride, or Blackpool's 'The Big One'? Maybe a hall of mirrors that just makes certain anatomical features much larger than they actually are? And what about Soho? Doesn't that have the 'sexual theme park' thing already sewn up?

Well, wash your mouth out with soap and water, because what's actually being proposed here is "an educational multimedia attraction that will teach visitors to become better lovers and provide valuable information about diseases and other sexual problems."

Yes we can really see all those reserved British types just flocking to a public attraction which seems to asumme they are crap in bed and are likely to get crabs. How can it fail?

The project has already got support from organisations including the Sexual Dysfunction Association and The Terrence Higgins Trust, and

a spokesman for the project said it was "committed to avoiding the sleazy image that the sex industry usually conjures."

What no dirty postcards in the giftshop? What about those pens which reveal a naked woman when you turn them upside down?

Given the furore which erupted when a 'sex shop' opened on Oxford Street last year we reckon you can expect to hear a lot more about this one over the next few months.
