Air Sex World Championship Tonight

As if Air Guitar Nation weren’t cringe-inducing enough, there’s a new way for aficionados of fraud to strut their stuff: it’s called Air Sex.

Like all great pastimes, this originated in Japan. Its founder, seen here in this seminal footage, explains that it is a competition born of necessity. Apparently, Japanese guys are not having a lot of sex and need to practice. In the audience, the Japanese women in the audience appear unimpressed by their ersatz exertions.

The first Air Sex USA Championships took place last year and, as always, we Americans kicked it up a notch. First of all, we added women. Duh! There are several videos to choose from on YouTube documenting the event and I can’t recommend any of them, mainly because I can’t bear to watch them.

Except, that is, for one featuring a horny Sarah Palin taking office after McCain’s Viagra-induced frenzy kills him. (Could this be what Glenn Beck’s fever dreams look like?) The community theater on acid vibe only makes it more difficult to look away. Oh, and it’s acted out to the tune of “War Pigs.”

So if you haven’t barfed your kibble yet and have an interest in an evening of sexual karaoke, head to the Highline Ballroom in NYC tonight for the Air Sex World Championship. Real sex and orgasms are strictly prohibited, so you won’t need a raincoat. Cheer for Team USA and try not to be weirdly turned on: it will be hell on you to explain this to your therapist.
At the intersection of mime and lap dancing lies Air Sex!

    @Don: Warhol's quote about 15 minutes of fame gets more accurate every day. Too bad he's not around to see it.

    @Douglas: Community theater/political/animal porn: it's got something for everyone.

    @unfinished: I have an alibi, I swear.

    @John: Faking orgasm is a time-honored tradition for the ladies, but I'm not sure what it gains the men, exactly. Maybe if a game is on?

    Ah, the Japanese! Inventors of anime porn "Hentai" among other things. Whenever there's a following for something, it will thrive. I've seen American kids simulating sex on the dance floor in clubs…generally only in the 18 and up clubs…and it had me and my girlfriends in tears laughing. The old folks just go home and do it for real.

    @Pamela: The kids are doing it for real, too!

    The dance move that always makes me giggle is what my husband and I call the "anal sex motif"–when a guy grinds on a woman's butt.

    Anal sex motif– we coined it but feel free to use it (with proper attribution, of course).
