A shopping mall in Shenyang opened a women-only frustration venting room where ladies can go and do things like smash TVs and beat up beanbags. Most of the customers are white collar or university students unleashing their angst about job hunting. They're allowed to enter the frustration chamber for free if they've spent 38 yuan at the mall. A few more deets:
The venting store located in the fourth floor of a shopping mall has a sign "No Men" at the door.
The store is divided into several zones such as a living room and a bedroom. Wang Jingyu, the business manager of the shopping mall said they would like to open a kitchen-like zone later, and they have done this so "women can come here to feel like they are in their own homes but without any limitations, and they can break anything here."
According to Wang, all the facilities in the store are real, such as second-hand mobile phones and second-hand television sets they purchased from 30 yuan to 100 yuan each. In addition, customers can tear paper, throw plates and beat big beanbags in the corners to vent their frustrations.
