There are many, many strange things that exist in the world. Hey, it’s all healthy expression right, whether you like yodelling on weekends or stalking people with leg casts (abasiophilia). I’d just about got my head around the concept of Air Guitar and its related championship events when I heard about the Air Sex World Championships, which is basically Air Guitar without the guitar and with people, well, you get the idea.
The thing I find odd is how seriously people take this sport, with forums upon forums of practise tips, video ideas, etc- culminating in a massive event that takes place in Texas.
Established in 2009, the Air Sex World Championships have just had their second event, which showcased people of both sexes rocking out like they had their C****’s out. Think filthy looks, stage gyrating and grinding, and even props for some added entertainment. There are no formal rules for the contest, other than you must adhere to state decency laws, stay dressed and that all the sexual acts must be simulated. Contestants have 2 minutes to do a routine, and it must include music.
Though I haven’t seen the show in person, the many videos give me a fair idea of what it would be like, and I’m half amused, half appalled. It all seems like good fun, but some of the acts are, well, risque would be the right word for them. You can watch the videos and decide for yourself.
Currently this is a USA only sport (though there’s no reason a Brit couldn’t fly over and enter), and I wonder if this will make its way to the UK, like so many other US imports. Do we want it? You be the judge of that!
Here’s a taster video of the winner of the event.
