Grab Life By The… Penis? A Climbing Wall Of Genitals Is Coming To London

Single and alone on Valentine’s Day? Who cares. Climb a penis wall.

Don’t stay at home and watch Brokeback Mountain with your cat (shaped hot water bottle), go to Grope Mountain instead. Designed by Bompas & Parr, creators of a Jelly Parlour in Harrods and a whisky tasting off the contours of real-life bodies, this is sure to be an extremely well-erected event.

First launched in 2015 at the Museum of Sex in New York as part of FUNLAND (an interactive exhibition about the pleasures and perils of an eroticised fairground), Grope Mountain is returning to London especially for Valentine’s.

Finally, the day of love has become more than just chocolate hearts, red wine and a dozen roses (so I’ve heard). Now, you can become part of an artistic installation, a ‘combination of strength, balance and mental agility’, a mental and physical journey through the choreographed routes of orifices and appendages making you rethink your own body… and, you know, a penis wall*. Plus, you could be crowned King or Queen of said penis wall. Something to tell the grandchildren, for sure…

*Other genitals also included.

Please note that tickets are sold out for non-Hangar members. But if you are a Hangar member, go forth and climb those penises. What? Who said that?! Here’s the link for tickets.
