“Air sex is like air guitar, and in air guitar, most of the competitors don’t really play,” says Jam Out with Your Clam Out, NYC’s reigning winner of the World Air Sex Championships
, of sizing up the field during last year’s coitus-simulation contest. Underwhelmed by mostly male participants, the NYC grad student entered her name, selected Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” as her song and enacted an intricate date with a very willing girlfriend. Her attention to detail and enthusiasm won her a gold Fleshlight sex toy—she later got a more female-friendly We-Vibe—and a trip to Austin to compete for the world title. A go-go dancer from Eugene, Oregon, named TyTy Sparklepants eventually won the tournament. “He was simulating butt sex and then did a back flip into a split and continued fucking,” she recalls. With this year’s regional competition at the Satellite
on Saturday, August 24, we asked Jam to break out her triumphal routine (check it out in the slide show) to show us what it takes to be LA’s air-sex queen.
