Teen to lose virginity in front of an audience in name of ‘art’

gayartA gay student has announced plans to lose his virginity in front of an audience for ‘performance art’. Clayton Pettet will have gay sex for the first time in front of 100 people, as part of a project called Art School Stole My Virginity. After the 19-year-old has had safe sex with a friend, he will ask the audience what they thought of his performance to see if it changed anything between them.

The teenager, who has been planning the event since he was 16, said: ‘I’ve held on to my virginity for 19 years and I’m not throwing it away lightly. ‘I have decided to use mine and the loss of it to create a piece that I think will stimulate interesting debate.’ The soon to not-be-a-virgin studies at the Central Saint Martins art school. Its alumni include Jarvis Cocker and M.I.A.

His event will take place next January in Hackney, east London but some gay campaigners have claimed it cheapens sex between loving partners. The Rev Sharon Ferguson, of the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement, said: ‘As an art project in front of the audience, where is the love, respect and mutuality in that?’

It could be amazing artistic display if the couple were in love to really show if anything changed for the good or worse. It could also show how they interact after they both get off. What the story is not covering is if the other partner is a virgin and how he feels about doing this in front of others. He will definitely have a future in gay porn if it turns out to be a good performance.

So when can you see this masterpiece in action? The new date is set for April 2, at the Orange Dot gallery in Bloomsbury.
