Were these women who worked in the brothels being exploited? Were they respected? Were they dedicated civilian contributors to a war effort? Economically disadvantaged young women certainly “served” alongside soldiers in harm’s way and—however complicated their life circumstances—their story is an interesting, and important one....More

It’s been a mystery about this unique place since I was a teenager. I was finally here to check it out myself. Basically, it’s a military only prostitution and available for soldiers staying outside of Taiwan. The government reached agreements with some female prisoners (good...More

For those interested in military history, or just history in general, this museum might be worth visiting. If not, I wouldn't recommend a trip here, unless you happen to be stopping by. When there are no tour groups, the museum is very peaceful and they...More

Military Brothel Exhibition Hall in Kinmen. In 50s' to 70s' the It was called 'Paradise in Service' and set for the soldiers needs. 「捨身報國 大丈夫獻命沙場磨長槍 小女子獻身家國敞蓬門」 民國38年(1949年)國軍退守金門,在這塊小小的地方守護著台灣。而阿兵哥們離鄉背井來到金門當兵,除了心裡思念家人及愛人外,當然先天生理需求也得發洩。順應發展於是國防部成立「軍中樂園=831=八三么」,軍營以契約方式設立公營軍妓院,後來約在民國47年後到50年之間,軍中樂園改名為「特約茶室」。最早成立在澎湖,後來金門、馬祖及台灣也都有。金門於1951年成立第一間。而且購買娛樂券票價15元可,以軍官的月薪7-12元來算的話,當時一票不便宜喔!(不過也沒地方花~哈哈) 解嚴後,特約茶室已廢除不存在,而位於小徑的特約茶室則改裝為展覽茶室歷史的空間,2010年才開放參觀。一開始看大門外觀很整潔,還以為是泡茶的茶室,不是很想參觀(笑)後來才發現是真的「茶室」,立馬好奇心殺死貓走了進去,這裡和電影軍中樂園的場景完全不同啦!不過開放的每間房間仍保有當時的佈置,我相信當時環境一定更差啦!現在還頗乾淨的~關於軍中樂園的祕密我建議來這裡之前,可以先去看看電影,大致就會瞭解了!而且會更有Fu喔!走進房間坐椅子上,按下播放機的按鈕,可以聽見房間裡軍紀、軍官、阿兵哥或侍應生們曾經在此發生的故事。這是是一個十分容易投入的地方,聽著聽著彷彿當時的畫面就在眼前(不是XX的時候啦!)有人在排隊、有人在買票、有人剛結束依依不捨出來、門內傳來的呻吟聲,好多無奈多沈重!(天啊!是幻覺。)
