Jeju Island’s Loveland Exposes Naughty Fun in Korean Sex

Last Updated on

Igot boseu… Loveland kayo?” (trans. This bus, going to Loveland?)

… Korean girls within ear-shot distance grew wide-eyed with side glances and we got a few silent nods and snickers between men. As two foreign girls standing at a bus stop with map-in-hand, I didn’t think there was much harm asking…

Occasionally, Koreans can surprise you.

A couple of month ago, it was a mystery to me as to where all the sexual naughtiness in Korean culture was hidden. Now, standing before the un-pearly gates of Loveland, I was about to have all presupposed ideas about a virginal Korea redefined. A naughty Korea was more like it.

Sex Education and Sex Parks in Korea

“Sex” and sex education can be a hush-hush subject in Korea. So I was surprised when I learned that Korea has a penis park to honor the male anatomy with giant sculptures of the schlong. But I was triply surprised to find that Korea had a sex park!

As the island is pegged as the romance capital for honeymooners,  it’s been rumored that Jeju Island’s Loveland targets the newly wed crowd, as a way to get the um,… “ball rolling”. A definite education of sorts if you were ever misled about what sex was or could be.

Outside, the building and parking lot barring entry into the sex theme park loomed as banal and depressing as an L.A. porn warehouse. No neon lights, just a small quiet sign which looked like a contraceptive logo. An element of cheesy and surprise prevails, however when you enter the theme park.

How do Koreans view sex at Loveland?

Well, apparently Koreans see sex the way many normal sex-loving folk do.

There was nothing hardcore, obscene, raunchy, smutty, or suggestive of something you might want to whip out your hand sanitizer for. The sexually explicit nature of the artwork was tasteful and entertaining.  Erotic sculptures, penis fountains, a giant hand fingering a vagina and abstract artwork… the park felt at times, a bit whimsical, absurd and playfully curious.  In one bit, it was “naughty fun”.

Count on Koreans to make sex seem cute.

Loveland’s Sex Museum of small naughty surprises

Stepping inside the simple two-story museum, you immediately encounter a glass case display of dildos, vibrators and flavored lubricants to smother yourself with in sex-play. Nothing much outside your standard sex toy shop.

Perhaps the erotic vignettes I find most risqué and provocative are often, the subtlest and naughtiest. That said, the upstairs exhibition was by far, my favorite. Call me a sucker for miniatures clay figurines which remind me of stop-motion animations I loved as a child! Claymation figures in sex-crazed panoramic scenes, mixed racy themes with playful tendencies in a humorous portrayal of quintessential Korea!

How was Jeju’s Loveland?

Was my 3 hour-long bus ride to Loveland worthwhile?

Hell yeah! As an amusement theme park, it did its job in keeping me well-entertained.

Whether you’re single or in a relationship Loveland might broaden your mind towards sex and the conservative Korean life.

Getting to Loveland

From Seogwipo:
Take a bus headed to Jungmun. Transfer at Jungmun and take the bus headed towards Jeju-si/Mt Halla along Highway Route 1139. Approx. 3 hours to get there.  The buses run less frequent.

From Jeju-si:
There are probably more buses which go there as Loveland is closer to Jeju-si; the easiest would be from Jeju Main local bus Terminal.

Museum Hours:
The park is open til midnight

Where to Stay:

So…wow… This begs the question: do Korean men tend to have circumcised or uncircumcised penises? I’ve always been curious but it would just be too awkward to ask my male Korean friends. Do you know?

    @Alison: Looks like you’ll have to take one for the team and see for yourself. Please let us know when you find out. 😉

      According to Wikipedia, the majority of Korean men are circumcised, but I still felt the need to verify. So I bit the bullet and asked my closest male Korean friend (MKF). He said that circumcision became more common after WWII, and that most men born between 1930 and 1990 are in fact clipped. Among millennials like himself, however, he said it was more of a toss-up: some are clipped, some aren’t. I was then bold enough to ask him which he was, but he refused to divulge. I did, however, learn an interesting bit of Korean slang: according to MKF, men and women alike often refer to penises as “peppers”. His explanation: it’s because the “pepper” is considered the spiciest part of the body.

        @Alison: LOL. Thanks for reporting back! Wonder why with milennials it would be a toss up and not a sure fire cut- I guess if you’re planning to date a milennial Korean, it’s a hit or miss. However, sometimes asking a Korean doesn’t always guarantee a complete answer either. I asked my Korean co-teacher once about sex and orgasms in Korea and her claim was that many people didn’t have it ( a post I wrote somewhere in my GRRRLTRAVELER archives). Come to find out, it all depends on the Korean you ask and either, their experience or how they want you to see the culture.

        I didn’t know the ‘pepper’ slang! That’s cute, although hopefully not indicative of size. ;D

I’ve really wanted to make a video for this place…but I don’t think it’s appropriate for YouTube 🙁

    @Simon: Hey Simon- big fan of your videos! Well, you could always blur the sensitive parts out and make that a part of your show (…like the taped down remote control). There are always loopholes. 😉

Having been there I can confirm the sexiest thing in this article is you….the rest fanstasy….or are you mine? there’s an interesting question. But loveland does offer a laugh and twitter (excuse the pun to social media) at situation of yester-life or not so yesterday. Its either new and unexplored , light-hearted insight of the creator’s mind or a reflection on life and our desires….for the newly weds prehaps instructions of what to do….

This is definitely on the docket when Jo and I hit Jeju next year. We’ve been planning that trip for some time! We can’t wait!

Great pictures with this post!
