Ever even heard of "sexual bending"? Neither had we. It's a form of "freak dancing" -- good ol' fashioned dirty dancing. Now it's being outlawed at a school formal ... and many students are boycotting as a result.
The new rules are as follows:
• Students and their guests will be videotaped during the dance.
• When dancing back to front, all dancers must remain upright -- no sexual bending is allowed. Examples are, no hands on knees, and no hands on the dance floor with your buttocks touching your dance partner.
• There will be no touching of the breasts, buttocks, or genitals.
• There will be no straddling of each others' legs.
• Boys must wear collared shirts and dress pants.
• Girls cannot have dresses that expose cleavage, extend above the mid-thigh, (or) have slits extending above mid-thigh.
Students are outraged. But school officials say they're doing this for kids' own protection.
(Last year, a California school made students sign contracts promising not to bump and grind on the dance floor. Yes, we're serious.)
We're all for keeping our kids safe at dances ... but isn't this taking things too far? The videotaping seems very "Big Brother" to us.
If YOUR kid's school introduced these rules, would you be for them or against them?
