Thousands of people visit Indonesia's Gunung Kemukus, popularly called the 'sex mountain' every year not to vacation in the hills but to have sex with strangers. In what can be called the most bizarre ritual in the world, people have sex with strangers. Every 35 days you have to have sex 7 consecutive times if you want to bring good luck to you. The bizarre story was first covered by video journalist Patrick Abboud who showed how people participated in adulterous sexual acts in a country where sex out of wedlock is a tabboo.
Folklores say that in the 16th century there was a prince in Indonesia who had an affair with his step-mother. While they were having sex in the mountains, they were caught and killed.
Because they died in the 'midlle of it' it is believed that anyone who has sex there gets all their wishes fulfilled.
There are more men who participate in the ritual than women, as a result the place ahs become a prime territory for sex workers these days.
From married men, housewives, politicians, government officials to prostitutes, there are a variety of people who participate in this strange ritual.
Many people who come to the mountain claim that their financial woes got solved after having sex in the mountain.
More than 8000 visitors come to the mountains every night. Seems like a pretty huge business!
