Nothing like a relaxing hot soak in a pool of human excretions.

Fudo no Yu, a Japanese outdoor bath/hot spring known as an onsen, was popular for its mixed bathing. Too popular. Footage appeared online of bathers using it repeatedly for orgies. They really liked to mix it up, you see.
I get it. Hot springs are sexy as hell. First of all, it's hot. There's steam. Everyone is all languid and relaxed. You're very aware of your body immersed in warm water with other bodies. If you manage not to urinate it can be a very sensual experience. However, we're all adults here and unless you own the hot spring, just store up all that sexual energy for when you're some place it's okay to orgasm all over. Like your own bed. Or bath tub, if you must.
Local tourism officials from the district decided to close Fudo no Yu after almost a year of complaints. The final straw was when the footage appeared showing 15 middle-aged men and several young girls frothing the water. The onsen had no caretaker on guard and charged a minimal 200 yen, which users were supposed to put in an "honesty box." You see, this is why we can't have nice things.
One anonymous member of the resident's association is quoted as saying:
“We are sorry, but it was breach of manners that was impossible to overlook. We had no choice but to close the bath.”
Yes, we're so sorry, but you just can't turn this important tourist attraction into a f*cktub. No, not even if you pay the 200 yen.
The hot spring has been drained and local perverts were asked to find a new place to defile.
