You’ve all heard about the skydiving booty call. But that pair is hardly the first to combine two adrenaline rushes into one. They’re not anywhere near the last, either. Extreme sex is the story of the season, with everyone trying to find ways to bone down while kite surfing or bungee jumping or whitewater rafting on a blow-up doll. Seriously.
Notes From a Trend
Celebs do it. Look no further than British tycoon Sir Richard Branson for proof. Vanity Fair featured a photo spread of Branson kiteboarding with model Denni Parkinson naked and clinging to his back (see the eye-popping image on next page). Granted, you aren’t going to get up to top speed, but who the hell cares?
Zealots freak out about it. A British evangelical Christian group denounced a book featuring a crude drawing of a couple having sex atop a skateboard. The controversy highlights the truly international character of the trend. In England, they’re humping on top of moving skateboards. In Russia, they’re mounting sex dolls and using them as whitewater rafts.
Porn reflects it. The prolific Gianna Michaels starred in a “film” about motocross culminating in a massive orgy. More on the nose: that video of a couple going at it whilst suspended from a repelling rope. (Google “alpine sex” and you’ll find it.)
Pay cable pushes it. The Playboy TV show Badass is all about action sports and nakedness. So far, they’ve gotten lovely ladies to strip down and try everything from ziplining to drifting to shark cage diving and more. Sherra Michelle told us all about it. Personally, we’re not crazy about anything that combines nudity and a harness, but these women smile through it like champs. Day rates probably help.
