Okay, that's just weird.The Air Sex World Championships are making their way across the country even as you read this! What’s Air Sex? Well, it’s like air guitar, but … I mean … yeah, with sex. It’s a competition: you pick a soundtrack, and you mime sex to that soundtrack, and the audience picks a winner in each city.
Well, you don’t. But a lot of people do. Anything goes, as long as you don't do the real thing. If you don’t have the nerve to go to a show (there are still four shows left before the tour ends on October 28 in New Orleans – as if that city hasn’t been through enough!), here are some of the highlights, which you can also search out on YouTube:
“Raffi” in Austin pretended to be a guy so preoccupied with his smart phone that he paused several times to get just the right soundtrack, keeping his headphones on the whole time;
“Max Penetration” in New Haven did a slo-mo version of le sex to the soundtrack of Chariots of Fire (including strategic use of his hat);
“Whiskey Queen” in Boston found herself sadly disappointed, via mime, in the performance of a too-drunk gu y… but got his wallet out of the deal, so okay;
“Guy” in Portland nervously discovered the joys of a glory hole, then hated himself right off stage;
“The Inspecta” in Philadelphia went through elaborate tying-up motions before leaping into the fray and finally collapsing in joy;
“Simon the Duck F***er” … well, let’s just say the name says it all!
What would your air sex name be? Would you go to a show? Tell us in the comments!
