Climb a wall of genitals for Valentines Day… The perfect gift for someone you love
Ever fancied grappling with a purple penis?
Of course you have. Haven’t we all!
Well, your dreams are about to become a reality… With design company Bompas & Parr unveiling a climbing wall with penises, vulvae, faces, boobs, and bums for grips. All the best bits.
The wall is called Grope Mountain, and it’ll be on display in London and Liverpool on 14 February, for all your Valentine’s Day related needs. The wall was originally on display at the Museum of Sex in New York as part of FUNLAND, but Londoners will now get to give it a go, before it moves on to Liverpool.
Grope Mountain has been upgraded since too, and now has a higher course and more routes to ascend. The goal is to reach the top first to become the ‘King or Queen of Grope Mountain’.
‘This journey encourages a rethink of the participants’ own body,’ explain Bompas & Parr on their website.
‘A visit to a conventional climbing wall is always physically engaging but has also been said to be intriguingly erotic: the combination of strength, balance and mental agility exhibited by climbers is enhanced by the voyeurism of spectators watching from behind.
‘Grope Mountain turbocharges that [effect], making the erotic nature of the experience all the more manifest for climbers and spectators alike, resulting in an unrivalled date night for Valentine’s Day.’
The London Grope Mountain will be open from Saturday 11 February to Sunday 12 February, 7pm-10pm, at The Climbing Hangar London, 5 Parsons Green Depot, 33-35 Parsons Green Lane, London, SW6 4HH.
