This Is An Actual Sign Telling People Not To Have Sex In Cable Cars

Bad consumers are responsible for those signs that remind you not to litter, smoke, talk too loudly, turn off our cellphones, and apparently to stop having sex in cable cars.

An Australian news broadcast reports that riders — especially those born in the ’90s (must be all those sexy En Vogue and Color Me Badd songs) — on the gondolas high above China’s Henan Province have been using the cable cars as a place to express their most intimate feelings for one another.

Thus, the warnings have recently gone up asking youngsters to refrain from making the beast with two backs, at least while on public transport.

Perhaps it’s time to start employing this latest no-no sign at other places where people get it on to the consternation of the flying/movie-going/shopping/grieving/dining public?

    Looks more like “No Missionary Position” to me.

    • funnymonkey says:

      I think you’re right. I think it is a warning to pregnant women. When you’re pregnant, you’re not supposed to lay flat on your back, hence, missionary is out.

      • dolemite says:

        It looks like the guy is about to do a pushup on the pregnant woman’s belly. “No working out on the pregnant women”.

    • MaxH42 thinks RecordStoreToughGuy got a raw deal says:

      I thought it was the forward cowgirl, except the one on the bottom appears to have boobs, and the one on top is definitely straddling, because their leg is on the outside…

      All this sign will do is make people think of it if they hadn’t before. If the intention was to stop people from having sex in the cable cars, they should have said that there is a hidden camera with a live webfeed. Sure, that would encourage some, but it would also deter quite a few, too.

      Looks more like doing a Russian to me.

      The act, not the resident.

  3. axolotl says:

    Those are workout positions. One is situps, the other is some kind of crazy Chinese pushup.
    Both a no-no in a cable car.

  4. Warren - aka The Piddler on the Roof says:

    Got a hummer in a cable car once. GF lifted her head just as another car was passing us. The look on their faces was priceless.

  5. Nobby says:

    Go too if you get a chuckle out of dumb or humorous signs.

  6. Marlin says:

    better; just put cameras in the cars and post the videos on line. ;)

  7. chizu says:

    Why is it called “beast with two backs”?

    • PunditGuy says:

      Othello, Act 1 scene 1.

      If you’re asking why from a procedural rather than a metaphorical standpoint… well, I’ll let your parents explain that one to you.

    Today’s project: Translate this sign into “Engrish”.

    “Kindly do not adjust human of same or other sex into orgasmic love hole mode.”

  9. Coffee says:

    “Please don’t choke your wife on the gondola.”

  10. Gman says:

    I think whomever did the art for that sign needs lessons on the other gender.

    I really don’t think most women have breasts that low. Or this person really does not want to see old people doing it on cable cars.

    Well that or he is performing chest compressions on a pregnant man.


  11. Important Business Man (Formerly Will Print T-shirts For Food) says:

    They should put this sign in the champagne room.

  12. drjayphd says:

    Just to be clear, we can still get busy in a Burger King bathroom, right?

  13. Blueskylaw says:

    The Thousand Foot High Club just doesn’t sound that impressive.

    • Applekid ┬──┬ ノ( ã‚œ-゜ノ) says:

      Meanwhile, the “thousand feet club” sounds like quite a stretch.

  14. shinazzle23 says:

    I’m sorry. I think that might have been me.

  15. noahproblem1 says:

    Doesn’t it only go into effect when the operator of the gondola loses consciousness from eating tainted fish and it starts to nosedive? And even then, I think it’s only for certain aisles of the gondola…

  16. Southern says:

    Cheap mans “Mile High Club” substitute.

  17. The Twilight Clone says:

    How hard would it have been to get a fucking decent resolution photo of the sign?

  18. Arcaeris says:

    It makes sense that this is common in China. Most Asian countries (Japan, China, Korea) have small homes or stay at home extended family or just no privacy at home in general, so kids can’t just have sex at home after school like they do in the West. In Japan they solved this with “love hotels” where people pay to rent a space for sex. It seems in China they either can’t afford such a hotel or they don’t exist, so they use a cable car, which is free.

    • Happy Tinfoil Cat says:

      In China, the hotels have separate floors for men and women and guards / maids stationed at each elevator door. If you provide a marriage license, and your passports, you can shack up with your wife. I know this from experience. You don’t need the marriage license if you are both foreigners.

    ‘Do not strangle other riders to death’. Good advice.

  20. Pagan wants a +1 button says:

    “Do not try sex in this position”

  21. Pigfish99 the randomly insane says:

    hooray, hooray, the first of may, outdoor F***ing begins today!

  22. Alarmpro says:

    How do they keep those signs up? They are so damn funny I’d think every one of them is an attractive target for thieves!
