This came up in another thread. During dancing we might experience contact with body parts someone else termed "undesirable". So what's people take on this? I'm not talking about creeps who'd feel a girl up, I'm talking about accidental contact, or outcome of intentional technique (such as dancing with body contact).

My POV (I'm a follower, btw) is: that a follow who's been dancing for a while won't care if her boobs touch the guy. I'd rather have that then having a guy push me through his arms.

Yep, I agree.  Shoot, I don't even notice it anymore.  A guy will apologize and I'll be like, "What?  Why are you apologizing?  What did you do?" LOL...

True story, from early in my dance career: My very first pro was trying to get me to not lean forward in tango.  He told me, "Try not to let your chest rest on mine... *looks down* Uh, never mind."

Ah, the challenges being well-endowed presents, hahahaha....

One of the advantages of dancing with my DW.   Wink  I'm with MC, though, I often don't notice.  Partner dancing means never having to say you're sorry.   Cheesy

I'm on the big side when it comes to that yet unnamed body part, so there's no way I can avoid contact there, especially if we're doing body contact, and accidents happen more often with 34DD anyway. By now I don't even care, I'm not sure if I ever did.

I have no problems with accidental contact. I don't even notice it unless it's in a step that hasn't ever had contact before, and then I file it away with the list of other steps that occasionally (if DP puts his hand in the wrong place) has contact.

I think that ballroom dancing is an up close and personal thing and people should be aware that other body parts are going to be in close contact. Having said that I think that the  women is the one who is charge of this, if she is happy for the body contact to be close she is the one that gives the signal to the man by moving in close.

If she does not then the man knows that he will have to keep a small distance.

In a social dance where you might dance with an partner not your life partner  I was referring to the male body part that's why I made the suggestion that we should wear briefs and not boxers. Now us males don't, in general, wear our undies over our head so what male part do you think I might refer to?

I thought you were referring to the girls boobs (here, I said that word). Besides, since for smooth you're supposed to be offset to the left, a girl should not come in contact with your private packages, which was why I didn't realize you were talking about that are. But personally if it happened by accident, I probably wouldn't even notice.

 "Talents" in man's "holes" is the contact that I was taught, I strived for in my dancing and now I teach.

I am taught (as lady)---put the boob in the hole (special place in the man's ribcage) and keep the assets off!

I halfway agree... if the man does not want to get into body contact (which he may not want to for any number of reasons), the lady should respect that, and not force the issue.
