    Yep. I find a difference between if I'm dancing with a bra versus not, for one reason or another. The latter is definitely easier.

    Actually, both scenarios would be amazing. :D

    (But yeah, you're right. I fail at basic physics. :oops: )

    Oh, right. Humor and levity are absolutely, positively, NOT ALLOWED in the realm of tango. How silly of me to forget.

    Sheesh. :rolleyes:

    Boobs are a fact of life, and they are a fact of close embrace tango. Things being what they are in Western society, there's so much other emotional *stuff* that goes along with them. Learning to turn that off, or to rethink our "relationship" to them is a real part of tango, especially for a beginner; it can be difficult, both for men and women, to learn to be OK with a sort of contact that is generally frowned upon. And, there is the very real physical aspect of things, which Ampster and I had both commented on. Is it so flippin' wrong to discuss those things, and to use humor in doing so?

    Oh...right..no humor allowed.

    What do you mean? We are discussing a legitimate aspect of tango. most especially in close embrace. Different body makes, types, sizes, do make a difference in leading. In this case, boobs.

    We are trying to keep it as light hearted as possible. I don't see a problem here.

    I think this deserves a peripheral thread... I'll go start one

    I'm with Peaches - they're a fact of (Argentine tango) life. Of course I got in trouble for writing about bras on my blog (after a leader complained about the uncomfortable consequences of Madonna-style-torpedo bras.) So I might not be the best judge of discussion propriety.

    Gee, one wouldn't think that the embrace itself could be a motivating factor in the dance ..would one? The embrace as a motivating factor?? Hmmm, I seem to remember a thread by that name...and someone referring to sex appeal and stuff like that...wow, how creepy a thought is that? Huh?:nope:

    I've never 'turned off' to that nor 'rethunk' my 'relationship' neither. In fact I enjoy it immensly every time I go out. :artsy:

    So that's why you want to dance close embrace?

    That's one of the reasons and I'm not ashamed to admit it..having a woman hold me in intimate embrace (almost intimate) is a great pleasure, add to that the golden age traditional music that puts me into a Fellini flick immediately and the fantastic challenge of the dance itself as it flirts with the Nirvana of being in the Zone....voilla, bingo you've got it all..the perfect pastime!:friend:
