Here is the synopsis for “Humpday”:

It has been a decade since Ben (Mark Duplass) and Andrew (Joshua Leonard) were the bad boys of their college campus. Ben has settled down and found a job, wife and home. Andrew took the alternate route as a vagabond artist and has skipped the globe from Chiapas to Cambodia.

When Andrew shows up unannounced on Ben’s doorstep, they easily fall back into their old dynamic of macho one-upmanship. Late into the night at a wild party, the two find themselves locked in a mutual dare: to enter an amateur porn contest together.

But what kind of boundary-breaking, envelope-pushing porn can two straight dudes make? After the booze and “big talk” run out, only one idea remains: they will have sex together… on camera. It’s not gay; it’s beyond gay. It’s not porn; it’s art. But how exactly will it work? More important, who will tell Ben’s wife, Anna (Alycia Delmore)?

Writer and director Lynn Shelton – director of “My Effortless Brilliance” and recipient of the “Someone to Watch Award” at the 2009 Independent Spirit Awards – expertly mines the biggest ironies of the male ego to hilarious effect. “Humpday” is a buddy movie gone wild.

Best Dare Story

I was on a small hill and dared my brother to ride his bike down it. He was three years younger, and at the age of 11, three years is a lot. He succumbed to the peer pressure, rode down, freaked out. He broke his arm and to this day I have the vision of him running around with an extra bend in his forearm.

I suppose it’s not the best story, more of my worst dare story.

Best Dare Story

In high school I dared a friend who worked in the school office, to send out a failure notice to a mutual acquaintance. The acquaintance of course thought it was the real deal and was totally freaked out.

Best Dare

In grammar school, I was dared by my best friend to eat paste. The paste wasn’t even the worst part. I faintly remember that the paste smelled badly and that it was basically tasteless. The chilling memory was of how defeated my mom looked when she picked me up. She spoke to the nurse for about 20 minutes, getting instructions on how to “flush it out”. We went home in silence. I remember the long silence that followed as she spoke to my dad on the phone while he was working. The only reason that I can touch paste today is because of my dad. When my dad came home from work he grabbed me by the back of my pants and hoisted me into his arms and asked w/the most serious face that I’d ever seen, “Why didn’t I just eat my breakfast?” The three of us just burst into laughter and hugged until I couldn’t breathe.
