NextImg:Sex stories the focus of new Midtown exhibit that says ‘f—k you’ to art world

Oral sex in a tree. Ticks in unmentionable places. Yearly texts commemorating a past threesome.

Raunchy sex-in-NYC tales like these are at the center of the “F—k Stories” exhibit at the Spring/Break Art Show in Midtown now showing through Sept. 11.

The 60 anonymous storytellers responded to ads posted throughout the city that said, “Call us to spill it all … your most raucous, your most bizarre … the dirty, and the strange.”

The responses were wild.

“It was my first day in New York,” one caller remembered. “I visited Times Square and a guy offered to sell me some weed. We went bar hopping and the next thing I know, we’re buying condoms at a deli.”

She went on to recount a crazy night of bloodied knees and lost debit cards.

The tales can be heard by picking up one of 10 phones in the simulated “call center” at the exhibit, located at 625 Madison Ave., a former Ralph Lauren space.

“F—k Stories” is the inaugural work from Yea Man Spa Global, a newly formed artist collective in NYC.

“It’s this weird call center you enter into, you pick up the phone and you’re hearing these crazy stories,” said curator Caroline Weinstock. “They could be horrible or they could be hilarious.”

Some are literally dirty — like one caller who accidentally laid a sleeping bag in a pile of “gnarly” animal feces and got it all over him when he packed up.

One woman was left feeling “defiled” after a night filled with naughty toys because her partner seemed more interested in his PlayStation.

The installation is the inaugural work from Yea Man Spa Global, a group of artists that includes Weinstock and seven or eight others, depending on the day.

In a matter of weeks, the group, who met at the gallery O’Flaherty’s, set up the number, hung flyers, ran transcripts through a voice generator, uploaded them onto MP3 players, connected them to phones, and ordered “perfectly scummy” red office chairs from Craigslist.

“Everyone thinks it’s the stupidest thing but we’re going to f—king do it and shock people by doing it, you know, which I think is cool,” said Devin Cronin, 26, another member of the collective.

“Our exhibit is like a ‘f—k you’ to the art world in a lot of ways,” she said.
