A man by the name of Clayton Pettet is planning on losing his virginity in front of a crowd of people, and it’s all for the sake of art.
The “art” will take place in a London gallery and there are expected to be 50-100 people in attendance. According to his Tumblr page, the piece will be called, “Art School Stole My Virginity.”
Clayton wrote the following on his Tumblr,
“(The idea) came around when I was Sixteen, when all my peers at school were losing their virginity it was incredibly hard for me to ask why I was still a Virgin and why it meant so much to the people all around me. My piece isn’t a statement as much as it is a question.”
We should mention that Clayton is gay, so his first time will be with a man. The volunteer is apparently a good friend of his, so at least he won’t be losing his virginity to a total stranger.
Of course, some gay activists have a problem with this. A spokesperson for The Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement told the Huffington Post the following,
“I’m not quite sure how that’s art. My view is that we believe that all sexuality is a gift from God.”
Anything can be art these days. I could go on stage and eat a hamburger while sitting on top of a cow and call it art.
