Nudist.jpgAnyone in the DC area have the afternoon off? I have an amazing flashmob idea.

In this video by German artists Dmitry Paranyushkin and Diego Agullo, man meets nature in a way I've never seen before.

The Humping Pact shrouds itself in elaborate art-speak, but there's no getting around the fact that it's about naked men fervently humping their way through desolate environments - from abandoned coal mines to landfill sites. But don't dismiss it as a Spencer Tunick rip-off or dystopian gay porn, The Humping Pact is a mesmerising meditation on the human body's relationship to the environment and our desire to conceive of the impossible. It even offers insights into the fallibility of man - the mission statement speaks about "the nature of dissemination, the will to conquer, and illusions of grandeur," although there's obviously plenty of irony at play as well.

I honestly found it more artistic than erotic. There is something oddly beautiful about it beyond the distant ass shots and hints of testicle - but it made me worry about the safety of dry-humping concrete rather than turned on.

Check out the NSFW video after the jump. It's a long video, but I couldn't turn away. Something about the rhythmic movements hypnotized me like a lava lamp.
