This is not really weird (I find it sympathetic) but it's about sex, so I'll put it here.
I'm reading this wonderful book: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13568710-draw-it-with-your-eyes-closed
It's about art assignments, gone good and gone bad. Of course the mishaps are the funniest, but also the most instructive.

Here's a wonderful postmodern tale, where you wonder, is it real (it is) and are the narrators reliable (not sure). It's a fascinating short story on its own:

AMIE SIEGEL
OBJECT RELATIONS

During the final years of the 20th century in Chicago, home to many imported modernisms—glass
skyscrapers presenting their crisp lines and barren structural plazas to airplanes buzzing in over the
lake—from Hyde Park to Evanston, graduate students heard whispers of a course in porn.


This was hardly new. Chicago was beyond modern, beyond monetarism, still swaying in the embrace
of poststructuralism. From the tilted-glass- ceiling studios at the School of the Art Institute reflecting light
from the lake, one could cross Michigan Avenue to the Department of Art History, Theory, and Criticism,
and join close readings of Linda Williams, Laura Kipnis, Judith Butler (this was the late gos, after all),
the occasional El train shuddering past. Courses in deconstruction, the transposition of literary theory
and cultural studies, queer theory and gender studies were all the rage in MFA programs. Universities at Santa
Cruz, Berkeley, and Wellesley had all initiated courses in the study of porn.

But this Art Institute class on pornography about which one heard quiet allusions—sotto voce utterances
in school lounges, Ukrainian Village bars, and student apartments—was not entirely concerned with theory.
It was offered through the video department (video, film, and media were separate departments then—this
was the late 90s, after all). In fact it wasn’t connected to the Department of Art History at all.


It was a production class. A course in making pornography, in making
porn films in particular, it wasn’t listed in the graduate program’s course catalogue, but operated
as a kind of “shadow class”—one had to know the right people to have heard about it, much less sign up.

Recent grads still hanging around related the rules: students who took the course were required to act in
the porn they produced.

I’m not sure I ever met anyone who actually took the course, though it seemed most people knew of it.
Or those who had taken the course didn’t speak of it, which I fantasized as a sign of the extreme closeness
and trust that developed between participants. What- ever exposures of self, desire, and voyeurism were
revealed in the class, they remained there, between its participants.
The idea of the course preoccupied me—
the switching roles of director and actor, exploiter and exploited (in the financial, legal sense), artist
and pornographer. The main requirement—that all participants perform in the porn produced—followed
the conventional structure of film production classes: students take turns behind the camera and before it;
they rotate roles, experience all sides of production.

It seems to me now that this self-reflexive turn of enactment—of agitating boundaries between
observer and observed, theorist and practitioner, actor and prostitute, top or bottom, film exposure
and self-exposure—is what took root so fi rmly in my consciousness as a formal mode of artistic
production: that the conditions of an artwork’s own production could raise complex questions and
erase comfortable cultural boundaries.

I knew the class was the conception of Vanalyne Green, who taught in the video program then, after
chairing the department. I must have asked her about the course, as she was an adviser in my final year, but
I can’t recall any specific conversation. I do remember that a few years later, over a bowl of noodles near Canal
Street in New York, she recalled how a particular dean had asked her to keep a “low profile” regarding the
class, concerned that press and attention of the wrong sort might be directed at the school because of it.

From the same book (note1, I'm really enjoying this book, and am not not making fun of modern art). It's these mishaps that an instructor will try to avoid in his own art assignments :)

Note2: I'm not doing art, but I find this book generally instructive for group work.

JAY BATTLE
SPIDERMAN'S DICK

(…) 3. Avery skinny, butch girl with short blond hair gathered the class for her ten-minute performance.
She began to strip amid awkward smiles and Snickers. Slowly she undressed down to her last two
undergarments, then abruptly produced a razor blade She had been hiding in her mouth. Removing the
item quickly from her gullet, she drew a line down her delicate inner arm with the silver blade, and walked
to the wall to make a mark of blood, ending the Performance. Unfortunately she had cut much deeper
than intended (it was a brand new razor) and hit an artery. The mark turned into a spurt and the audience
became part of the painting.

4. There is a close-up video shot of curly white fur and the sound of saliva. The image is hard to make out,
but it could be the back of a poodle’s head, licking Something. The “performance” goes on for a while
and a soft female voice is saying something to the Poodle. Finally the camera angle widens to reveal the
Mise-en-scéne. The very quiet art student who always Sat next to you smiling and saying nothing has put
Peanut butter between her legs and allowed her white Poodle named Tiger to clean up the mess. (…)

Between his giant grin and her sly smile, I don't want to know how his throat cancer is linked to her anal cancer.
It's just bad luck -

HPV is a sexually transmitted disease that most people will get in their life. Most strains are symptom-less, but some can cause genital warts or even cancer of the genitals, anus, cervix and throat.
This is why the HPV jab is a good idea. Some parents object as they think giving it to teenage girls might encourage promiscuity. sigh

'Sex With Stalin' BDSM Game Enrages Russian Communists

A popular saying once said there was no sex in the U.S.S.R. — but there is now, and with whom else but Stalin himself?

A newly announced game that offers players the experience of getting to know Stalin a little too intimately has drawn a range of reactions, including the ire of Russia’s communists, who have vowed to fight its release.

Global game distributor Steam announced the release of the bluntly named “Sex With Stalin” single-player BDSM simulation on Oct. 10. The player, assuming the role of a “young time traveler,” is given a chance to change the course of history and, as the game’s developers say in broken English, “show that mustache guy what's real love is!”

Strategically censored screenshots accompanying the announcement show Stalin's animated image in various stages of undress, positions and locations. One picture shows the crudely drawn naked Soviet leader gesturing at the viewer.

Maxim Suraikin, head of the Communists of Russia party, called the adult-themed game’s developers “insane.”

“This has to be banned, no question,” he told the Govorit Moskva radio station. “The title itself already sounds outrageous and perverted.”

Suraikin said that the developers, whose only other release appears to be “Boobs Saga,” a bosom-themed “satirical 3D action” game released last winter, could be held criminally liable for the contentious game.

Live performance artist Snatch Adams invites an entire music festival to smoke weed from a bong stuffed up her arse ..

'The show went on for an extended amount of time. Adams said that one gentleman told her that he had not smoked marijuana for twenty years, but that he knew he needed to do it out of her butt no matter what.'

Fair play to her for doing that completely unnecessary thing.

As long as no one was hurt and everyone including her got a smile out of her antics, the world was a better place (for approximately one hour before she was shut down for upping the ante by suggesting people could also smoke DMT out of her fanny with the bong) she feels :badge: ... cool as f**k
