Part tour documentary, part comedy special, and part exploration of modern sexuality, Air Sex: The Movie follows comedian Chris Trew as he tours North America hosting the raunchy, hilarious, sex-positive social phenomenon known as The Air Sex World Championships.
Entering its seventh year as a nationally touring roadshow, Air Sex is the world’s first SPART (half sport, half art), combining the pageantry and prestige of a professional sporting event with the excitement and creativity of a first-rate talent competition. Think Air Guitar, but instead of pretending to play musical instruments, Air Sex participants have jaw-dropping sexual encounters with an invisible partner (or partners) using nothing more than the art of pelvic storytelling and pure imagination.
From Orlando to San Francisco, Toronto to Austin, director Jonathan Evans follows the crew as they encourage “airsexuals” of all ages, races, body types, and gender identifications to sign up and become part of this bizarre spectacle. Through it all, a panel of judges (mostly comedians, celebrities, pro wrestlers, and porn stars) provides hilarious feedback after each performance, ensuring that even the worst Air Sex routine makes for a solidly entertaining time.
Amidst religious protestors, natural disasters, roach-infested motels, and hordes of screaming audience members, Trew makes love to nothing at all across North America. Intimate interviews, behind-the-scenes moments, and live performance footage soon reveals Air Sex as a respectfully dirty, unpredictably ridiculous, and oddly touching celebration of sexual freedom and expression.
Along the way, rivalries clash, old and new favorites emerge, legends are born, and lives are changed. And at the tour’s climatic end, a handful of the nation’s best finalists head to New Orleans and put it all on the line to compete for the most prestigious trophy in all of sports - the Air Sex National Championship.
Cinekink called it a “raunchy, raucous, and sometimes moving documentary,” and with an all-original soundtrack by New Orleans’ Michael Felton, it’s more like a nonstop roller coaster for your eyes, a party for your ears, and a mysterious lollipop for your brain.
Above all, this is a movie about a serious, legitimate competition to see who can fake-f*ck nobody better than anybody else
