Great Pyramid Sex Lands Photographer In Trouble!

The idea of having sex in public is a turn on. The chances of getting caught, as well as the risky locations, makes people want to try it. However, lately people have been eager to try more daring places for sex. The Great Pyramid of Giza, for example.

"Egypt. Cairo - Giza. General view of pyramids from the Giza Plateau (there is three pyramids popularly known as Queens' Pyramids on front side; next in order from left: the Pyramid of Menkaure /Mykerinos/, Khafre /Chephren/ and Chufu /Cheops/ - known as the Great Pyramid). The Pyramid Fields from Giza to Dahshur is on UNESCO World Heritage List"

As exciting as this thought might be, it could land you in a heap of trouble. One photographer has found himself facing this very real prospect as he posted a picture of a couple seemingly having sex on top of the monument.

About the Great Pyramid stunt

This stunt was performed by Andreas Hvid. Hvid is a Danish photographer, known for his rooftop photography, as well as nude art. He has taken nudes in a number of unique locations, though he seems to favour rooftops. You get to enjoy the stunning artistic shot of a naked body with a familiar background to go with it.

He managed to gain the attention of the world, as well as the Egyptian authorities, when he uploaded a video to YouTube. The video was titled ‘Climbing the Great Pyramid of Giza’. This might not seem so controversial, but climbing the pyramids above a certain height is actually against the law. The site is also closed to the public after 5pm.

This itself was enough to get the photographer into some trouble, but then he posted a controversial image online. The image shows a man and a woman ’embracing’ or mimicking sex on top of the 140m pyramid.

Has it been faked?

There is a little uncertainty about the video and the photo released by Hvid. Officials have come forward to state that the footage is fake. The site is heavily guarded, meaning that the group would have had a hard time sneaking in. However, Hvid addressed this by stating that “fearing to be spotted by the many guards, I did not film the several hours of sneaking around at the Giza Plateau, which lead up to the climb”.

Others pointed out that the area seemed to be extremely well-lit, considering the time of night that the video was allegedly taken. Some felt that the pyramids were too bright, which made them question whether the footage was real or not.

From my memory of the Great Pyramid during my own visit many years ago, I don’t remember any street lighting in the area. The pyramid itself was imposing, and the very idea of climbing something of that size is intimidating. Did Hvid and his group really do all of this for a video and a photo?

The reaction of authorities

Khaled El-Anany, the Minister of Antiquities for Egypt, spoke about the controversial project. “The explicit video has sparked fury and outrage among Egyptians in general, the officials affiliated with the Ministry of Antiquities in particular”.

The prosecutor-general will be investigating the film to determine how they scaled the pyramid and if they filmed a pornographic movie on top of it. “I demanded that experts be tasked with checking the video and determine whether they are real or fake”, the minister said on the subject.

Given how symbolic the pyramids are of Egypt’s rich history, we can see why officials would be offended. The allegation that someone has climbed the Great Pyramid and performed this act at the top is worrying. But even if the footage has been faked, the minister stated that “negligent officials will be brought to justice” as a result of it. Yikes!

Is the footage real?

It seems that, whether the footage is real or not, the photographer is going to be in a lot of trouble as a result, as will any officials involved. Many seem insistent that the footage has been faked, while others feel that it is far more work than necessary for something so controversial.
