    I love how the X is right through the relevant section of the guy's anatomy, LOL. :D

    That struck me as well, so much so in fact that I was confused for a moment, thinking the sign was really meant to say something about erection, except I didn't quite understand why the body part in question was crossed.

    It would be referring to salted pig trotters. In Cantonese it is a slang term for the hand of a pervert. Not sure about Mandarin.

    Ninja'd by Etaoin. Groping pervert might be a better translation.

    Because people are not allowed to enter and use whatever it is.

    'Construction going on. Using [this] not allowed.'

    Yes, I get it now, but at first I was confused because, as Callaina said, that particular part of the anatomy seemed to be crossed, lol.
