Bingham (left) and Pettet (right)
Well, this got more interesting, and by “interesting” I mean annoying.
Well… any good theater production knows you never open on Broadway. It’s good to see live sex shows making a comeback. I always thought we needed more of them; now there are TWO!
They are both stealing from the 1st century Roman Emperor Nero. He did this but he went as far as to dress up as a woman on her wedding day held a mock wedding with a slave, did a fake wedding reception and at the end of the night made all of the guest watch when he made the slave (the groom) take his character’s (the bride) virginity. They are not performing art. There is nothing artistic about sex. Sex is sex. And virgin sex is even less appealing to watch.
Actually, this idea isn’t new at all. And honestly, it’s reminding me of that guy “Augstine” on the show “Looking”.
You know, somebody who thinks they are being interesting and “Arty” but really they are just boring and desperately screaming “Look At Me!” to hide their mediocrity.
This is why people hate gays
How does the audience even *know* for sure that he’s a virgin, anyway? Squeals of pain? Agonized shrieks of “Take it out, take it out!”? Or just a look of vague, uneasy discomfort?
And shouldn’t the top be a virgin too?
I think both of their ideas have nothing to do with art and everything to do with attention and a really twisted kind of fame. That being said I was anxious to watch Clayton lose his virginity. Although I don’t think he has much virginity to lose in consideration of the fingers and toys that have most likely been there already. But I have bad news for Clayton because John Bingham is much cuter so he’s got my attention now! Go ahead, call me shallow!
It has moved from art to competitive fucking. Otherwise known as porn.
I believe the plot came from the latest RAD (no relation) Video catalog.
Why are we fanning the flames of this pretentious attention seeking? If they want to have public sex then go to The Black Party or Folsom Street Fair like the rest of us.
What really pisses me off is if these were not privileged white kids with connections no one would give a shit. But because they went to art school and have made enough waves in the media, now everyone cares! The only thing that makes these live sex shows notable is that they got noticed. It’s almost Kim Kardashian in nature.
Besides, if I had to choose between the two it would be the one that does not involve a woman.
Wow,two bottoms competing for a top. Sounds like a weekend and AuntiChrist’s house.
@TinoTurner: Yes, because we both know straight people would never do something like this.
How DARE you steal from me (something that I’ve stolen from others)!
Don’t really understand why these two kids would want to do something so sordid; is self-promotion really worth one’s dignity?
“This is why people hate gays”
No, this is why people hate Art students. ;)
Battle of the egotistical morons.
@derek mcgillicuddy: They swapped dignity for EGO, feeding it with attention.
so, will they televise this sodomizing? Will it be to completion? Will it be bareback? Do any of us give a damn?
@TinoTuner – actually this has absolutely nothing to do with why straight people gays. But it does make people stop and wonder if someone’s parents didn’t waste their money sending their kid to “art” school.
@derek mcgillicuddy: a look at what currently passes as “reality” TV should quickly answer your question.
The should just deflowering each other’s kuku. Win/win situation.
It’s not who has the idea, but who executes it and it looks like Bingham did nothing to execute his flippy-flop in public until he heard that Pettet was actually going to do it. Get a life Mr. Bingham.
the circumstances sound a lot like the founding of Facebook-(You stole my idea!!) Where are the Winklevoss twins when you need them?
Despite all the artsy-fartsy pretensions, isn’t this really just Gay Porn? Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Gay Porn, but that’s all this really is, right?
If he had just gone ahead and done it when he announced it and not dithered around for a year or so, it would already be a fait accompli.
@Cam: No this is why people hate gay art students.
So this is how you become famous with accomplishing any thing. Frankly, I like privacy.
There seems to be a desperation to claim that this is a gay thing. Have none of you ever met art students before?
well at least at 19…..he is figuring out that he is not the only stunt queen out there
@Paulie: Yeah, usually you had to fly from London to Amsterdam to see a live sex show; I wonder what reflects worse on the gay yobs of England, this OR the public intoxication (Was in Southampton last year on o Friday night and was amazed at how much vomit there was in the streets!).
This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever read. This is why nobody likes art students.
