Is Salsa sexual. My husband feels that it isn't. I think it is. I base that on the following:
- Eye contact
- Waist touching
- Latin beat
- Fast movement
- Short dresses
- Night Club scene..etc.
Let me know...
You can see about just how "sensual" Salsa can be all over Youtube.
Personally, you can make it what you want it to be. For me, it is far more "athletic" than sexual. It's more like a CONTACT SPORT for some of us. With all the bruises, accidental hits, high-speed spins, lifts and tricks... it is FAR FROM SEXUAL.
For others, if you end up with a geeky dance partner, it is like kissing your brother. Yuck.
And then yes, I have to admit there are those that take it to the extreme in some of the hottest, darkest, and steamiest Latin nightclubs throughout the world. It just "depends" on who you're dancing with, the country, the music, the floor, the room, the atmosphere... all that.
Let me know if you need anything "further" explained to your husband... in fact, go to a local nightclub, introduce him to one of the hottest female dancers there, allow him to dance with her, and afterward, you can ask his opinion of just how sensual Salsa can be ... Let me know what happened!
