  Polynesian Dancing on Moorea

Polynesian dancing is highly erotic. When the women start the high speed hip wiggling it certainly is something to see.

When the Christian missionaries came to French Polynesia, they saw this dancing and were horrified. They banned it. it is not difficult to see why men of the cloth would find this shocking. Apparently the Polynesians used to perform this dancing in secret after it was banned. I for one am very glad as it would have been a massive shame for this to die out.

This dancing is way better than any Greek belly dancing I have seen. The women almost seem to have little motors in their hips that move at a phenomenal speed.

This perfomance was at the Tiki Village. Warning! I took a front row seat at the performance to get better photos, but sittting on the front row meant I became a victim later and had to join in the dancing with a couple of the girls later, and there was no way I could compete with what they were capable of...
