We’ve all been the recipient of an explicit message or two, whether we’ve asked for them or not. One festival coming to Brooklyn is displaying your nightmare sexts in the name of art.
One side effect of love in the digital age are those solicited, and often unsolicited, amorous messages we affectionately call “sexts.” Whether you keep them, delete them, or show them to friends for comedic purposes, they have become a somewhat normal part of our love lives.
What if you had the chance to share the most outlandish sexts you’d received with a city of 8.4 million people? That is exactly what Brooklyn’s Sexting Art Festival is proposing. The inaugural event will be making it’s way to Littlefield on April 5, and offers you a chance to be an exhibited artist without ever having to pick up a paintbrush or pencil.
The festival organizers are searching for your images, texts, video and audio featuring most outlandish sexts that you’ve sent or received… now, before you freak pout and feverishly send apology texts to all your online beas, there is a strict no-shaming policy. Here’s what the organizers have to say:
“We enforce a strict no shaming policy. If there is a face in your submission, please upload an additional picture (yours or your ‘friend’) which includes your face and the current date as proof of consent to be judged in the festival. You can always take a pic next to todays-date.net.”
