THE AIR DOWN THERE

by

Air guitar competitions not ironic enough for you? Then you’re gonna love this: the Air Sex World Championships. If you really need us to spell it out, here’s the gist: Replace nonexistent guitar with nonexistent naked body. It’s a night of what the Highline Ballroom helpfully describes as “fornicating with phantoms”;—onstage, of course. For those who think their behavior after a few drinks with a nice-looking companion, a couple of flirty gestures, and the answer to the ultimate question “Your place or mine?” warrants unbridled exhibitionism, all you have to do to win this contest is lose the companion and show the world your moves. Best of all, you won’t even have to clean the sheets after. Or will you?
