Can sex be construed as art? A 19-year-old Londoner thinks so. According to an article in the CBC, Clayton Pettet has safeguarded his virginity for so long, he doesn't want to let it go easily. Hence the headline grabbing installation entitled "Art School Stole My Virginity," which will see the St Martins student having sex for the first time in front of an audience of between 50 and 100 on Jan. 25, 2013.
"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," Pettet said.
