Salsa Revisited

I’ve concluded that salsa is the most humiliating dancing style for men. You’ve trained so long and so hard to dance with a girl for a few songs who then pats you on the back before moving on to the next beta. And this is just from what I’ve seen. I imagine my opinion would be more negative if I was actually victim to this.

The only acceptable dance style is if your crotch eventually ends up rubbing on her ass. Since that doesn’t happen in salsa, it’s unacceptable for men to become accomplished salsa dancers. It’s the only dance that even if you get a hard-on, your girl wont know since you’re three feet away from her spinning her like a ballroom princess.

I don’t go to clubs much. Is it common for guys to get hard while dancing? Can’t other people see? That’s kinda hot. Maybe I should go more often. 🙂

If you want dancing where it’s normal for your crotch to be rubbing against the girl’s ass, go to Trinidad!

Maybe she’s just waiting for the “beta” with the right moves…a man who can dance gets more girls than one who can’t.

Agreed. I’ve been to salsa bars and they’re among the worst place to meet people – male or female. For one, the music is very loud. And even if you can dance very well, there’s no guarantee that you’ll get the girl. Why? one reason is the no grinding factor that you talk about. another reason is that there’s like 40 guys who will ask (or more aptly, DEMAND) for a dance with her. I would not even take a date there. Go dance salsa ONLY for the sake of dancing, not to meet people I’ve seen guys who are expert salsa dancers who bounce from girl to girl the entire night and then go home alone.

I’ve seen amazing salsa dancers get nowwhere because the entire situation spells out “I’m trying way to hard to impress you”. However I’ve learnt enough salsa that when used outside a salsa club, say spontaneously spinning a girl you’re walking with in the park… adds that right about of fun to a date.
Oh and there’s this move where you spin the girl into you so she facing the other directions, your arms crossed over her front and salsa step togeather crotch to her arse. Could be I got that from some other kind of dance but I use what works for me 🙂

Never should a man fear having a hard on while with a woman, it is a COMPLIMENT. 😉

I disagree, Salsa can actually be very alpha if done by an old school salsa dancer that can really dominate and show skill without looking needy and desperate to impress. It all comes down to how hard you’re trying. The really good guys can do it with ridiculous ease, which negates the “try-hard” aspect of it. But the best thing about all ballroom dancing skills in general is that just like real life courtship, the chick will test you to see if you have skills and take control, and if you do you’re in there. Problem is a lot of dudes learn the salsa skills from a technical standpoint but never master the alpha male frame of mind. The key, however, is TO LEAD. Seriously lead. If you don’t lead, have any self-doubt or make the dance about impressing and supplicating her, you fall into the beta role and it’s over.
