Hot New Dance Craze: Slamming Your Butt Into Someone’s Face

In the "so you think you can dance" category of sexuality-related news, a "hot new dance craze" is sweeping Brazil. As Maureen O'Connor explains at Gawker.com, "Brazil, home to the world's most celebrated butts, has invented a new dance move. It's called the Surra de Bunda ("ass licking [or punching?]") and it involves hooking your feet over a man's shoulders and sledgehammer slamming your butt into his face."

Sledgehammer slamming your (presumably very womanly) butt into someone's (presumably shit-eating) grin. "There are dozens of videos of Surra de Bundas on YouTube," Maureen writes. "Nobody there seems to understand what the heck this phenomenon is, either. Is this a dance move or a sex act that we are witnessing? It appears to have migrated to non-hetero, less-bootylicious groups as well."

Unless it's a new kind of alternative energy, I can't wrap my head around this. Watch the video, see for yourself.

Update: It turns out the dance is called “Butt Spanking,” and the song is a tale sung by a stripper who’s contemptuous of a drunk man watching the show.
