CMSA; just so you know , this is what art school was like for me in the 70's;
I supported myselfin artschool as a figure model, bfa '78. The only thing unusual about this account re Chuck Close, is that the stories don't end with sexual intercourse , as most of mine did. At the time i, a very young and naive 19, found the pressure so persuasive that i remember jumping into sexual encounters at the first suggestion, so as to "get it out of the way", so we might get to the stuff that interested me; who they were as artists.
I say we're making progress because now atleast, young women understand sex is no longer a mandatory part of being a model and an art student.
Those who stand out in my mind today, are the few good men who chose not to follow this model of behavior..
