clayton-pettet-bathtub.jpgLast October we reported on Clayton Pettet (pictured), a 19-year-old student at the prestigious Central Saint Martins School of Art in London who planned to bottom for the first time in front of a group of 50-100 spectators as part of an art project. The performance art piece, titled "Art School Stole My Virginity," was originally scheduled to take place in January but has been rescheduled for April 2, Attitude Magazine reports.

In the show, Pettet and a friend will engage in safe anal intercourse until completion in front of a "select audience" of 150 people at the Orange Dot, an art gallery in the Bloomsbury area of London. Contrary to earlier reports, however, there will not be a question-and-answer session after the main event. Instead, Pettet will simply "invite the audience to ask themselves about the true definition of virginity" as they depart.

As we noted in our initial report, Pettet's performance has already faced considerable backlash. But he shrugs it off, telling Attitude: "I don't mind if people judge me - that's art, everyone judges art."
