Bored Japanese businessmen started the air-sex trend, says Bryan Poyser, director of the raunchy, heartbreaking romantic comedy, Love and Air Sex, which opens at the SIE FilmCenter on Friday, March 7, for a weeklong run. Air sex is the erotic equivalent of air guitar. Pornographic mimes boasting filthy stage names such as Cuntastrophe (winner of the fifth annual world competition) and Jam Out With My Clam Out (2013's New York air-sex champion), go head to head, thrusting solo dirty dancing to new heights of obscenity. For Poyser, the international air-sex championship became the perfect backdrop for a love story. While crass jokes litter the film, Love and Air Sex is a sophisticated exploration of loneliness, desire and lost love. In advance of the Denver run, Westword spoke with Poyser about his film.
