This Sex Mountain ritual is the strangest things you ever heard
Can you believe that nowadays people go up to the “Sex Mountain” and make love just to have a good fortune in life?! This story sounds fake, but it is true!
This sex mountain is a part of a strange sexual ritual, and it is located in Indonesia. Daily people clime its slopes to have sex and not with their loved ones or with the people they know. If they wish to have a good fortune in life, they should have sex with complete strangers! Even local politicians come there to get lucky and to attain success in life!
The local name for this wonder mount is Gunung Kenukus. It was a rather secret place until a journalist from the Dateline uncovered it. His photos and videos went viral. Moreover, once is not enough. If you wish to attract happiness and be “blessed” you should get 7 intercourses with 7 strangers on the mountain over the period of 35 days. Otherwise, it won’t work.
On a busy night up to 8, 000 people can gather together for a bang. The man could not believe the rumors, so he went up to get some firsthand experience with it. And the thing is not new. It was started back in the 16th century.
All sorts of folks come up there: businessmen, housewives, married and single, even prostitutes search for their good fate there. Indonesia is a Muslim country, so how can such a thing be possible there?
How did it all get started? There is a legend that some 5 centuries ago a local price had sex with his mother up at that mountain. People caught them at it and murdered. The man and the woman did not finish their “act of love”. So, people come there to finish the business and get a good fortune.
No foreigners are found on the mountain, but people come from all parts of Indonesia. Presently this sex mountain turns into a business instead of some sort of religion.
It surely is fascinating how there are cultures that embrace their sexuality this openly, but it is also troubling considering that the ratio of men and women are marginally disproportionate. There are more men than women, and many have started asking money for sex.
It seems the sex on the mountain has become a great source of revenue instead of just a ritual. All superstitions are ungodly, but people still follow them for pleasure or for merit.
