Dancing is a fabulous way for couples to get close, have fun...and put each other in the mood. Did you know that many dances have their history in fertility rituals?
Since man first found a round hollow object, stretched some sort of skin over it, and grabbed two sticks with which to thump, music and dance have enriched our lives every day, in every way—particularly those involving sex and fertility.
The rhythm and motion, the vitality and touch, and the freedom and flirtation of dance and music awaken your deepest sexuality. According to Briana Masterson, a choreographer/ dancer who studied at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, “Dance brings sensual togetherness to music. Dance invigorates us while relaxing us at the same time. The great beauty of dance is its universal power.” That power is a force for bringing women and men closer to their instinctive natures to mate.
We don’t talk about “fertility dances” anymore, but we should acknowledge that the significance and honor of dance have always been centered around fertility and reproduction. Even primitive man knew, or sensed, that beautiful and sensual pelvic movements energized babymaking. We know today that the movements of dance do, in fact, stimulate nourishing blood flow to reproductive areas, which aids in conception.

The Hootchie Kootchie was introduced at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893 in all its shocking, delicious sexiness, but primitive man had a handle on the concept well before that. The Hootchie Kootchie is derived from what is known as an abdominal dance, or belly dance. Abdominal dances as fertility enhancers involve exquisitely sensual movements of the pelvic region—the thrusting, rhythm, rocking and rolling of the entire hip and pelvis area. This circular motion is indicative of the circle of life, the movements stimulating the sexual act itself. Many cultures performed abdominal dances as a “magical” way to promote fertility. Let it work for you!
Think high voltage! To do the Volta you need a “twirling skirt,” a skirt that twirls perpendicular to your body as you spin. Twirling skirts have been used as fertility enhancers just about forever. It’s the exposing of your legs as you dance and spin, and the flirtatious sexiness of the skirt itself, that communicate the powers of fertility and passion. It’s all about intimacy, sensuality, fun, and relaxation. Kick up your passion a few volt-as!
