LOVE & AIR SEX comes to Slaughter this weekend accompanied by a one-night only Air Sex Competition!

What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than with a local romantic comedy and air humping, right?

LOVE & AIR SEX comes to Slaughter this weekend accompanied by a one-night only Air Sex Competition!

LOVE & AIR SEX, the local romantic comedy from writer/director Bryan Poyser, starts a week-long run at Slaughter Lane this Valentine's Day weekend.

The movie follows brokenhearted Stan (Michael Stahl-David) as he flies to Austin for the weekend in hopes of "accidentally" running into his ex-girlfriend Cathy (Ashley Bell). He arrives to find their best friends Jeff (Zach Cregger) and Kara (Sara Paxton) in the middle of their own vicious breakup.

Before too long, battle lines are drawn – and with the Air Sex World Championships in town, anything can go down.

Poyser and actors Zach Cregger and Sara Paxton will be in attendance for a Q&A following the 2/14 screening and Poyser will be at evening screenings for 2/15 and 2/16 for Q&A's as well!

Here's what critics are saying about the film:

"...has a spontaneity and cheeky attitude ... along with spirited naturalistic performances that infuse the standard rom-com formula with a zany vitality." -NY Times (Critic's Pick)

"A fun, naughty frolic that knows the timeless rules of break-up-to-make-up comedy." -Dallas Morning News

"A careful balance between hilarious vulgarity and clever honesty, Love & Air Sex is the rare comedy you want to re-watch again and again with a revolving audience." -Twitch

And, to help celebrate this local film, a raunchy look at love, heartache and air sex, we're having a special, one-night only, free Air Sex Competition following the Valentine's Day screening! Paxton and Cregger will stick around judge the raunchy hijinks.

If you are new to the Air Sex game here's the breakdown:

If you've been to any of the Air Guitar shows, you know a little bit about what to expect, except that competitors in this show won't pretend to play an instrument that isn't there; they'll be pretending to make love with a partner that isn't there.

Do you think you've got what it takes to compete? Our judges will be watching for the entire presentation, from costuming, to foreplay, to an eventual climax. They'll be looking for believability, sexability, and overall entertainment value (cause what fun is sex if no one's watching?).

The Rules

Time: Contestants have a maximum of 2 minutes to perform an air sex routine. This can include all phases of an air sex encounter: meeting, seduction, foreplay and intercourse, or you can simply cut to the chase.

Music: Competitors must perform to music, you can either bring a CD of your performance track with you, or you can choose from our selection of air sex music. You may also include an audio prelude to your performance, maximum of 30 seconds.

Other Rules: Unlike air guitar, there are not many other rules. Props are allowed, teams are allowed, talking is allowed. The only important rule is that all sexual climaxes must be simulated, not real.

So come enjoy and support local film, strangers humping the air this Valentine's Day at Slaughter!
