BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese tourism authorities are seeking investment to build a novel concept attraction -- the world's first "women's town," where men get punished for disobedience, an official said Thursday.
The 2.3-square-km Longshuihu village in the Shuangqiao district of Chongqing municipality, also known as "women's town," was based on the local traditional concept of "women rule and men obey," a tourism official told Reuters.
"Traditional women dominate and men have to be obedient in the areas of Sichuan province and Chongqing, and now we are using it as an idea to attract tourists and boost tourism," the official, surname Li, said by telephone.
The tourism bureau planned to invest between 200 million yuan ($26 million) and 300 million yuan in infrastructure, roads and buildings, Li said.
Who knew that the Chinese were kinky enough to build a dominatrix town? The ministry of tourism is bankrolling this thing too. This has the possibility of ending very badly. What’s the penalty for leaving up the toilet seat, caning? This could lead to the downfall of traditional Chinese culture as we know it.
Note: Tango knows that they don’t have ‘traditional toilets’ in China, but its reference was used to be humorous yet familiar example of a stereotypical pet peeve of women in the United States.
