Tourist Sparks Fury By Stripping Naked And Rubbing Against Sacred 'Penis' Rock

Everyone has fun with unfortunately shaped landmarks - be it the Eiffel Tower or other erect objects that happen to bear a slight resemblance to a cock.

One tourist in Thailand looks to have gotten a bit carried away, though, as she sparked uproar by stripping naked and rubbing herself against a sacred penis-shaped rock.

The blonde woman was snapped pulling her pants down next to the Hin Ta rock on the island of Koh Samui yesterday before she thrust herself against the 12ft high landmark.

Legend goes that Hin Ta - or Grandfather rock - bears the spirit of an old man, and locals now want police to make an example of the woman.

Food seller Sutida Wongyai said: ''The rock is very special and represents our island. It is an insult to do this to it.''

Hotel boss Suriya Promsri added: ''Nobody should be naked in public here. That's offensive. The police need to find her and prosecute her. It will warn other people not to disrespect the island.''

Resident Niwin Suksan, 34, who runs a stall near the stone, added: ''I felt very uncomfortable after seeing the picture. I want the police to take appropriate action to avoid this happening again. The Grandfather rock has a long history and the people of Samui are proud of it.''

The Hin Ta is one of Koh Samui's major tourist attractions and can be found next to a smaller Hin Yai (Grandmother) rock which resembles a woman's vulva.

The story goes that an old couple once sailed to the island to arrange a marriage for their son, only for their boat to capsize washing their dowry away.

Mortified of turning up penniless, the couple are said to have jumped in the sea, eventually being reborn as 'male' and 'female' rocks. Credit: ViralPress

Although signs on the beach warn against hi-jinks, the universally funny shape of Hin Ta means that a day rarely goes by without pranksters climbing the rock or taking offensive photographs with it.

In August 2016 police sought to arrest a tourist snapped posing on top of the rock, while just last month a model caused uproar after taking a cheeky photo of her 'licking the tip' of the landmark.

Police on Koh Samui have now confirmed that they have received a complaint about the naked tourist and are now investigating the incident.

A spokesman said: ''This is not acceptable and officers will investigate the images and try to find the woman."
