It was a night of humpers, pumpers, and thumpers this past Saturday night, when the Air Sex World Championships tour made a stop at Madcap Theaters in Tempe. Air sex is a "sport" much like air guitar, but instead of pretending to play an instrument, people mime sex acts with imaginary partners to music.

Dur Bear ... on roller skates.

Kicking off the competition was a guy named Dur Bear, who glided onto the stage in roller skates, cut-off jean shorts, and a yellow T-shirt with "Born to Fuck" scrawled on the back. He did a lot of wall humping to a techno song. The judges, Brock LaBorde of Studio 8 and Ana Anguiano, a writer for ASU's State Press Magazine, gave mixed feedback. Ana said he looked fit and like he might make a good father for her children. LaBorde scolded Dur Bear for having a Dum-Dum lollipop in his mouth, because it was too small.
A very spastic act followed, when Stefan Pruitt from local electro-pop band Peachcake took the stage, as "Space Panda." Wearing blue Pillsbury Dough Boy pajama pants that read "Just Dough It" and a pink Chullo hat decorated like a squirrel, Pruitt looked like he'd dressed in costume, but he wears that kind of stuff all the time.
He gave a highly energetic performance to "Blue Monday" by Orgy, which included throwing himself on the floor and flopping across the stage like a fish. His knees were bleeding afterward, and he licked the blood off them during the post-performance interview -- a strange exchange that Trew says will end up on "the DVD extras."
Andrea Beesley-Brown, a.k.a. The Midnite Movie Mamacita, was next. She said she'd tried to back out of performing after she signed up, but Trew made her go through with it. We were glad, because her solo re-enactment of the infamous, viral "Two Girls, One Cup" video with a folding chair and an empty glass was totally different from the other performances.
The final act of the night was a lively brunette going by the handle Cunt Tastrophe. Her performance was pretty amazing. Not only did manage to swiftly pull her pants off without removing her glittery red high heels, she then proceeded to simulate double-teaming herself with invisible toys on a chair, in the air, on the floor, and in a dozen different positions. She was loud and facially expressive, too. Judge Brock LaBorde commented afterward that the entire stage was shaking.
