Clayton Pettet (pictured), a second year art student at Central Saint Martins art school in London, plans on losing his butt virginity in front of a gallery full of spectators on January 25, 2014. He claims it will be an act of “performance art.”
sweeping act of teenage narcissism deflowering will be titled “Art School Stole My Virginity” and will feature 19-year-old Pettet and his friend engaging in safe sex until completion. Afterwards, they will ask the audience what they thought of the performance. Because who doesn’t like to be critiqued after sex?
“I’ve held on to my virginity for 19 years, and I’m not throwing it away lightly,” Pettet said. “Basically it’s like I am losing the stigma around virginity.”
He continued: “Since culturally we do hold quite a lot of value to the idea of virginity I have decided to use mine and the loss of it to create a piece that I think will stimulate interesting debate and questions regarding the subject.”
We suppose when we were 19 we may have thought the same thing.
Pettet says he has been planning the event for three years.
“The key thing about performance art is that it should only be performed once, and this is the ultimate once-in-a-lifetime performance,” he claims.
Pettet also says he hasn’t told his parents about the project, but he expects it will earn him rave reviews with the masses for challenging the idea of sexuality.
We’ll refrain from making too much judgement now and will instead offer Pettet this piece of advice: Do an enema beforehand so as not to turn your act of sexual defiance into an act of public humiliation.
Oh, and be sure to use lots and lots of lube.
