What Are Air Sex Competitions and Contests?

Updated on March 22, 2012

You may ask, what are air sex competitions? These serious competitions have spread in popularity around the world and have become popular in the United States over the last five years. Each year, the American World Air Sex Championships go down in a carefully chosen city in the United States. Contests are open to anyone over 18 years of age and feature men's and women's categories. Due to the growing popularity of Air Sex Competitions, entrants come up against some stiff competition.

The current reigning Air Sex Champion in the United States is Shanghai Slammer from Los Angeles who has out-performed every other city champion in the United States.

These highly emulous competitions originated in Japan in 2006 and are now featured on a weekly television show. Air Sex is now a world wide phenomena with a large You Tube fan base.

Competitors remain fully clothed and enter the stage where they compete for large prizes. Contestants have two minutes "make love" to an invisible partner in front of an audience. Sponsors of the contests choose music to set the mood. No sexual act is off limits and exaggeration is encouraged. Contestants can begin with foreplay and end with an orgasm if they so choose. Prizes are not awarded to those who finish first, but to those who demonstrate the most creativity and enthusiasm. In most contests, the audience chooses a winner by their applause of approval.

Canada is the newest participants in the Air Sex arena. Tournaments are held each year in Toronto. Nine other cities participate with regional competitions.

To prepare for these rigorous competitions, participants train by honing their techniques in front of mirrors. Many other competitors use video recorders, mirrors, and willing friends and families to stand in for the audience.

Who is in the audience of Air Sex Competitions? Everyone. People all over the world have created a demand for this new voyeuristic spectacle. You Tube videos featuring Air Sex Competitions have been viewed by millions of new fans.

      Thanks for commenting Daughter of Maat. When I first saw this "contest" I was just stunned. I had never heard of it. I added a clean video for demonstration, but there are some other videos that aren't PG13 rated. These videos are really disturbing. I appreciate your visit!

      OMG, how hard up are these people? Personally, I can't see the point in something like this, it seems like a waste of time to me. BUT, my mind immediately thought that the people who participate in these contests are obviously frustrated individuals who enjoy imagining having sex with someone because they haven't seen any action in eons. Kinda sad when you think about it that way lol. OMG I'm just dumbfounded. I'll go pick my jaw up off the floor now. Thanks for sharing this! I hope the hub police leave this one alone, it's actually interesting and I'm sure you're getting a ton of hits on it! :D

      Anyone notice the "related hubs" next to this article? Hmmm, How to replace a Mazda CX-7 Cabin Air Filter. I wonder what that has in common with air sex. Maybe changing the cabin filter is an erotic experience.

      Come on, you aren't really going to compare curling to "Air Sex"? In Canada curling is serious business, people get together and enjoy the social atmosphere, they drink a few beers, and some of them go off and have "real sex". I don't see "Air Sex" in the Olympics anytime soon ..
