No art, no love. Clayton Pettet, a 19-year-old art student at Central St Martins, will publicly lose his virginity — the backdoor kind — in a project called Art School Stole My Virginity. On January 25, 2014, the sophomore and a male friend will engage in safe sex onstage in London’s East End.
On his Tumblr, he explains it in more art-speak terms: “Although virginity itself is an abstract idea, the moment the hymen is broken is completely physical, and thus the exact moment of deflowering can be pin-pointed. For women that is. The loss of male virginity is still more abstract — an undetectable moment in time, does male virginity really exist? If so, can a male ever lose his virginity?”
