Love Valley near Goreme, Turkey is famous for its bizarre ‘fairy chimney’ rocks cut naturally by the wind and rain. Göreme located among the “fairy chimney” rock formations, is a town in Cappadocia, a historical region of Turkey. It is in the Nevşehir Province in Central Anatolia and has a population of around 2,500 people.
Although the rocks may make people smirk, they are simply the result of ancient volcanic eruptions, approximately 9 to 3 million years ago during the late Miocene to Pliocene epochs, which covered the region with thick ash that solidified into soft rock many metres thick.
Erosion from the wind and water left only its harder elements behind, forming an unusual landscape of cones, pillars, pinnacles, mushrooms, and ‘fairy tale chimneys’, some of which are up to 130 feet (40 metres) high.
The huge phallic formations may look like a homage to male fertility, but they have been naturally formed by erosion of the volcanic rock.
The famous region of Cappadocia has seen an influx of tourists travelling by hot air balloon to check out the phallic-shaped pillars, which have been dubbed by some travellers, the ‘c*ck rocks’.
Every morning before sunrise, hundreds of hot air balloons rise into the air above Cappadocia, each holding around a dozen passengers for dawn-time hot air balloon travel, floating above and around the beautiful rock formations that has also jokingly been referred to as ‘willy valley’.
Cappadocia, or ‘Kapadokya’ in Turkish, translates as ‘land of the beautiful horses’ and tourists often catch a glimpse of long-maned horses galloping through the formations.
Kodachrome Basin is a state park of Utah, USA. It is situated 1,767.8 m above sea level, 19 km south of Utah Route 12, and 32 km southeast of Bryce Canyon National Park.
The scenery is usual here, dominated by 67 monolithic stone spires called sedimentary pipes. They accentuate multi-hued sandstone layers revealing 180 million years of geologic time. The color and beauty found here prompted a 1948 National Geographic Society expedition to name the area Kodachrome after the popular color film.
This park is particularly popular during spring and fall, when temperatures are moderate. A concessionaire offers horseback rides and other activities and services.

Hardcore rock sex in an underground cave – Lang’s Cave in Gunung Mulu National Park in Borneo
Mulu National Park is in Sarawak State on Borneo Island. It’s well known for its breathtakingly gigantic limestone caves.
The Gunung Mulu National Park is situated close to the southern border of Brunei with Malaysia, about 100km east-southeast of the town of Miri and 100km due south of Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei.
Many of Mulu’s attractions lie deep below the surface. Hidden right underneath the forested slopes of these mountains is one of the largest limestone cave systems in the world. The Park has a number of world record-breaking caves such as the Sarawak Chamber – largest cave chamber in the world, Deer Cave – largest cave passage and the Clearwater Cave – longest cave in Southeast Asia. There are at least 300km more of explored caves, which provides a spectacular sight. These caves are also home to millions of cave swiftlets and bats.
The Grandmother Rock (Hin Yai) and Grandfather Rock (Hin Ta) on Koh Samui island in Thailand are, propably, the most famous penis rock and vagina rock in the world. Many couples go on honeymoon here — there is a reason why…
The waves crash against the rock and the white foam from the ocean water collects in the crevice. But what we see is different… or not?
Every year, hoards of gleeful tourists head down to Lamai, off the beach road, to have their photos taken with these rock formations.
Two rocks which look like genitals, located just few meters away from each other:

A stalagmite is a type of speleothem that rises from the floor of a limestone cave due to the dripping of mineralized solutions and the deposition of calcium carbonate. This stalagmite formation occurs only under certain pH conditions within the underground cavern. The corresponding formation on the ceiling of a cave is known as a stalactite.

“Earth Erotica” by photographer Heather Firth – collection of pictures which show life previously unimaginable: rocks can be sexy.
“Heather Firth’s artistic eye and photographic composition bring to life that which was previously unimaginable: rocks can be sexy! It is fresh, original imagery.”
“Heather Firth takes two of life’s elements I feel most passionate about, sex and nature, and combines them to create some of the most beautiful and mind-boggling images I’ve come across. It takes an especially creative eye and a playful mind to even notice such natural erotic imagery. Add to that a skilled mastery of the medium and you have some very unusual and provocative work!”
“The pictures are so sensual it’s hard to believe they are actually rocks and trees from Mother Nature. They are unbelievable really.”

Mother Stone from Guangdong, China, where the Danxia Mountain is yet another place where we find rock formations in the shape of female genitalia (and male also, look at this)
This beaver shot was taken just outside of St. Catherine, Jamaica, where the locals call this vaginal rock formation the “Pum Pum Rock” — pum pum being slang for that other P-word we call cats.
