I hate how people speak harshly about twerking. To me, it's not slutty or trashy but a surviving piece of my cultural roots that Europeans colonizers tried to wipe out. Twerking has deep African roots, dances like mapouka celebrates the beauty of the african woman and the way she moves her body. Both Twerking and Mapouka are beautiful skills that require the mechanics of the female body and should be praised not looked down upon. Please, compare these two videos.
I have no idea what twerking is and have no intention of ever really finding out.
If it's grinding on some guy or some girl, and pretty much having sex with clothes on in the middle of the dance floor, then I feel that is inappropriate in some settings.
And your font is incredibly small, some people might find that annoying. Like myself.
Those two dances are completely different. Twerking doesn't exactly look like a surviving piece to your 'cultural roots'. The traditional African dancing is just that and the 'twerking' although I have never heard about it is basically grinding. My roots are completely Celtic yet I don't do whatever dancing the Celts did back in there day. I'm not saying don't Twerk, twerk away I really couldn't be less bothered but to me that does not look cultural in any way shape or form.
I do take it that way. Especially now and how you take how SOME girls act and dance, and songs like Bandz A Make Her Dance, and girls shaking their butts in front of a camera does make it slutty. What's worse is when 13 and younger girls are dancing like this. Don't try to mix things up. You and and everyone else on this thread knows that no one twerking on a guy is thinking about African Culture.

i'm not talking about twerking that means grinding, twerking involves moving your ass in a circular motion and up and down without moving the rest of your body except for your legs, for example:
you can not deny that twerkign originates from mapouka, and is basically the same thing, and yes some women who mapouka do dance on dudes.
Look what she's wearing. That doesnt seem the least bit sexual to you. Or is it all culture? No! Don't try and back that up because I know that's not how that girl is taking it.
