Residents in one of Germany's rudest villages have been driven bonkers by their saucy name - Bonktown.
Now Town Hall officials in Poppenhausen have decided if you can't beat them, join them and have turned the town into one of the sexiest sightseeing spots in the country.
"We had lots of people coming to the town because of its name, because in German 'Poppen' is a slang word for making love," explained one.
"In the end we decided if you can't ban them, at least make them comfortable," they added.
Now saucy day strippers are encouraged to take a one mile long love path through romantic woodlands, which even featured anatomically-shaped special double benches for couples to do what comes naturally.
Other exhibits to get visitors in the mood include a notice with how to say 'I Love You' in 100 different languages and a giant four leafed clover to bring newlyweds luck.
Local tourism manager Andrea Muller explained: "It's all about love and encouraging couples to relax,"
