Melbourne, Oct 8 (ANI): Millions of men are bombarding Swedish tourism bodies with inquiries regarding a mythical town, which reportedly is home to 25,000 sex-mad lesbians.
It is rumoured that a wealthy man-hating widow had founded the town of "Chako Paul City" in 1820 in the northern Swedish woods.
Two blonde women, it is said, stand guard at the town, which also features a medieval castle.
A large number of the town's female residents turned lesbians "because they could not suppress their sexual needs", reports Chinese news service Harbin News.
Chinese media has embraced the myth as millions of men have swamped the Internet trying to find out how to get to the town.
However, media reports have warned the men that paying a visit to the town might put them at risk of being "beaten half to death" by police.
"I've no idea where this came from but it's not true," News.com.au quoted local authorities' spokesman Claes Bertilson as telling Sweden's new service The Local about the rumour.
"At 25,000 residents, the town would be one of the largest in northern Sweden, and I find it hard to believe that you could keep something like that a secret for more than 150 years," he added.
Bertilson said that he did not know where the fictitious account could have originated.
"I have no idea where something like this could have come from," he said. (ANI)
