A new dance craze called the Choke is sweeping South America. As Clutch magazine points out, the Choke looks an awful lot like the Bump of the ’70s, but it’s more sexually suggestive than simply bumping hips. The dance involves a man dancing behind a willing woman or another man, and pulling her/him towards his crotch or hip to the beat of the music. The Choke is not nearly as sexually offensive and confusing as Daggering, a “dance” that was created in Jamaica a few years ago, nor as skillful, hypnotizing (when done right), or deadly as the Dutty Wine. I found the men doing the Choke together, in the video above, much more interesting than a man and woman. But maybe that’s because two men banging each other’s crotches and behinds is taboo in the heterosexual world? Check out one more video of the Choke after the jump, and let us know if you think this dance will take off in the U.S. [Clutch] Keep reading »

Okay, mon, so this one really blew my mind. There’s this new dance craze in Jamaica called “daggering”—check out a very G-rated version in this Mr. Vegas video so aptly entitled “Daggering.” Basically, imagine a dude using his erect penis as a…er…dagger and trying to stab it into unaccommodating places on a woman’s body (i.e. anything but a hole). Um…basically simulating sex. Some geniuses are taking this craze into the bedroom—same idea only this time, they’re getting injured. Bending the penis when it’s at attention can cause it to fracture. The guys get a sudden, sharp pain and then their thing gets black and blue. Doctors in Jamaica are freaking out because the number of penis fractures in the country has tripled. As a result, government officials have banned any type of media promoting daggering.
Itâ€™s been a long time since the tush got the push it deserves. Sir Mix-a-Lot unleashed â€œBaby Got Backâ€ 15 years ago and J.Loâ€™s assets have been put into child-rearing, leaving a crack in the market for someone to slip into. Luckily there’s plenty of love for the gluteus maximus on another coast — The Ivory Coast. Everyone, from nightclub fly girls to footballers during the African National Cup, has been shaking their part in the latest dance craze: Bobaraba. The signature bootie bumping move was inspired by the beat of a song by DJ Mix and DJ Eloh and the dedicated dancers know that when it comes to bobaraba, bigger is better. So, while there is a wealth of products that help deflate your rear on the American market, both women and men in Africa have been buying up backside increasing injections and creams. Although, the butt botox has doctors worried because no one knows whatâ€™s in the rump enhancing recipe and it could potentially be unsafe. But that hasnâ€™t stopped anyone! Just check out this video and what itâ€™s doing for the derriere. [BBC]
