Usher Apparently Paid $20 To Charge His iPhone In A Woman's Vagina

The future is weird.

Posted on

Usher decided to take Marquise up on the offer and paid $20 for 10 minutes of battery life. The gallery described the symbolism behind the performance on their Tumblr:

"Body As Commodity" forces the active audience to consider whether using a doll for sexual pleasure commodifies sex more or less immorally than using a real body for amenities that can be monetarily quantified, such as energy; the charging of a mobile phone. This performance piece uses the exchange of literal energy (battery life) for figurative energy (use of a body) at a monetary expense to exemplify the exchange of simulated sexuality for monetary gain.
