My time as a teen was they late seventies, and nothing like 'freaking' was allowed at a school dance. Some kissing during a slow dance, a little minor ass-grabbing, that was OK. But I've seen video of this type of dancing, and as well as being graphic, I don't see how it can't be stimulating to those involved. It is simulated intercourse, nothing less. I read that there's nothing personal about it, but do we really want our kids dry-humping people they don't know very well? Where is the mystery of learning about sex if it's virtually done right in front of you at a school dance? I'm glad I don't have teenager.

great point. that, to me, is one of the biggest problems with the hyper-sexuality of MTV/popular culture aimed at teenagers -- they're killing off one of life's great mysteries, and great joys, and turned it into little more than a fashion accessory.
