Pull up a chair and let your man be the audience. Play a mash-up of sultry songs and dance on the couch like you are making love to yourself. Let your man long for you as you flaunt your cleavage and bare legs in front of him. Here is where you take dirty dancing to a new level.


Chair, you and him – the perfect combination

Ask him to sit on the chair while music plays in the background. Slowly unbutton his shirt as you dance to the number. Tease him, bite him and kiss him while feeling his bare chest. Occasionally sit on him and get him close to you. This will set the dance floor on fire literally. Try this one for sure.

Wear a low-neck nightgown, stand on the floor on all fours and crawl slowly towards your man. While he waits on the bed, you move slowly with seductive looks and sensual moves. This one needs no practice, and you can get started right away.

6. Couple dance and loads of mush

Don’t spend thousands on a candlelight evening. Create the ambience at home by ordering wine, food and good music. Dress up in that little black dress and ask your man to dress up too. As you enjoy a glass of wine in his arms on soulful music, try touching him in places where he would clench his fist in excitement. You might skip the meal for a little mischief under the sheets.

7. Dancing in the bathroom

This is one of the best places to get started for a seductive dirty dancing session. Imagine music being played as the two of you get under the shower, kiss, fondle and dance like two crazy souls. With the two of you naked, get in tune with the song and get touchy-feely.

8. Learn a dance form to sway like a pro

This one might take time, but the outcome is going to leave your man surprised. Learn salsa, hip-hop or jazz or any other Western dance form. Perfect each move and throw a surprise dance performance for your man. Select a song that will make you look a sex siren and drive your man crazy. Chances are he might dream of you even in the office.

How to give a lap dance and give him an unforgettable night

Not all of us are magically blessed with the hips of Shakira. Some of us have to work extra hard in order to give a sexy lap dance that doesn’t make us look like an ungraceful fool and risk ruining the hot mood.

[Read: How to strip tease – 19 sexy moves for newbies to undress like a stripper]

There is a lot more strategy involved in a truly sexy lap dance than just being able to wiggle your hips to the thumping beat of a erotic song. If you want to know how to give a sexy lap dance that he’ll never forget, you’ll need these tips.

1. Build up the anticipation in his mind

Giving your man a heads up that he’ll be experiencing something fun and sexy that night. It’s the perfect way to initiate his sexual anticipation.

You don’t have to give him an exact itinerary for the night, but sending him naughty clues throughout the day should be enough to pique his curiosity. Even just a snapshot of a lace corner from your outfit would suffice.

2. Set the mood

You can’t give him a sexy lap dance without creating a hot and steamy atmosphere. You have to set the mood so the second he walks in the door he knows he’s in for a wild night.

Keep the lights low, the music at a soft but audible decibel, and leave a single chair in an empty space so he realizes what he’s in for. [Read: How to grind for a guy sexily and discreetly and get him hard in seconds]

3. Choose an outfit that makes you feel amazing

You don’t have to go spend a ton of money on some lingerie that you feel weird and uncomfortable in. You should wear something that not only you feel sexy in, but something that he really loves seeing you in – and out of. You can even wear a sundress if that’s what he really likes!

4. Practice your dominant attitude

A sexy lap dance is all about power, and women hold all of the power during this sex act. So you have to become a dominant, in-charge woman.

Pull him into the house, demand that he takes off his coat, and shove him onto the chair that you’ll be using for the dance. [Read: 17 femdom secrets to be a dominatrix mistress and dominate a man in bed]

5. Before learning how to give a lap dance, work out your rules and set them down

Since you’re now in charge, you get to make all the rules. If you don’t want him to make a peep throughout the whole thing, tell him that.

If you don’t want him to touch you at all, then make sure he knows. And make sure he knows that if he breaks those rules, he’ll have to pay.

This not only makes it fun for you, but he’ll also get riled up even more when he knows he can’t even so much as touch the amazing body that’s grinding all over him and luring him in. [Read: The sexy ways to tease your man and make him want to F you right there!]

6. Relax a little beforehand

If you haven’t ever given him a lap dance before and you’re more than a little nervous, have a drink! Hell, have two and a shot on top of that.

Lap dances can only be successful if you’re relaxed and willing to have a good time. If you fear that your nerves will hinder that, then drink up. You’ll be feeling relaxed and ready to dance in no time!

7. Pick some sexy music that gets your hips wiggling

Add both sexy music, and music that you love dancing to. The goal of this is to ensure that you’re comfortable enough to let go and have fun.

So throw on some mood music that you love, so your dance moves seem genuine and effortless. [Read: The absolute lovemaking playlist guide you need]

8. Start slowly and build up

You should start dancing while you’re still standing a couple of feet away from him. This means he can take in the whole view. Then slowly dance your way toward him with slow and seductive moves.

9. Undress slowly and teasingly

Don’t just rip all of your clothes off at once. The point of a proper lap dance is to slowly remove pieces of clothing in a way that makes him WISH he could rip them off.

To do this, take off an item of clothing every couple of minutes, while never removing your eyes from his.

10. Spend equal amounts of time on and off his lap

This can be confusing since it is called a “lap” dance, but it works. Really great lap dances do a lot of teasing, and you want to make him crave actually having sitting on his lap.

To do this, stand over him with your back to him. Give him some sexy visuals of your backside dancing before leaning back and touching his lap.

Doing things like this will give him equal viewing time and touching time – two things that can work together to create a powerful lap dance he’ll never forget. [Read: 28 hot ways to be sexier for your boyfriend and make him lust for you]


Gauge his reaction and change your tactics accordingly

Some men prefer to have the lap dancer facing the other way so they can get a view of their booty. Others prefer to have a woman’s boobs right in their face.

Make sure you’re gauging your man’s reactions and adjusting your body accordingly so he has the most pleasure. [Read: How to ride a man and look sexy doing it]

12. Practice before you go for it

To get more comfortable with your moves and finding the right pace for taking your clothes off, practice when you’re alone. You can even practice in front of a trusted friend and get some of their advice if you’re feeling really anxious about it.

13. Make sure you choose a sturdy chair!

There are many people who have tried giving their boyfriends a sexy lap dance only to end up breaking a chair or falling over in it! So you want to ensure the chair can hold the weight of both of you! [Read: Fun sex games to play with your boyfriend]


Don’t push yourself too far – stick with what feels comfortable

Don’t try belly dancing like Shakira if you really don’t have much mobility in your hips. Just do what you can to feel sexy. Don’t go overboard with the music, outfit, or dancing. Simple is always best when it comes to giving a sensual and sexy lap dance.

15. Choose the right lighting

No matter what time of day you’re attempting to learn how to give a lap dance, you need to choose the right lighting.

Candles are perfect because they’re instantly sexy from the get-go. A full-on light could be enough to make you feel self-conscious – it’s harsh and if you feel uncomfortable you’re not going to enjoy it as much.

However, candles and fairy lights give you that half-light that is super-flattering from the start! [Read: 24 sex room ideas to make any room look and feel sexy]

16. Always work the hips

Whilst there are no specific moves to remember when learning how to give a lap dance, it’s normally all in the hips.

By circling your hips, jiggling them up and down, moving them back and forth, and basically doing anything in a slow manner when it comes to this part of your body, you’ll get the trick just right.

The hips are a super-sexy part of the female body. This is probably because they’re directly connected to the butt!

If you want to move your shoulders in line with your hips, a little like a belly dancer, go for it. Yet, usually moving your hips means moving your butt and that’s a good place to start.

17. Cut out the distractions when learning how to give a lap dance

It goes without saying that you shouldn’t choose a time when you’re going to be distracted or when one of you has to be somewhere. Your lap dance doesn’t need to have a time limit on it.

Make sure that he leaves his phone in another room and yours is turned off. If one of you needs to go somewhere, that’s the wrong time and you need to reschedule! The likelihood of your lap dance turning into something else is very high, so bear that in mind. [Read: 16 sex tips for women to make sex so much more exciting]

18. Remember to have fun!

Don’t think so much about your insecurities! Giving a lap dance is supposed to be fun. If you’re having a good time, then it is guaranteed that your lover is going to have an amazing time, too. So relax and just have fun with it!

There are no rules to learning how to give a lap dance

The bottom line is that you can’t do anything wrong when you learn how to give a lap dance. All you need to do is move your body, remove your clothes *or just wiggle in sexy ones if you prefer*, and drive him crazy. The very fact that you’re willing to do this for him is likely to be enough to start with. [Read: How to spice up the bedroom – 22 tips to set the bed on fire]

There are no rules. You don’t have to turn your back to him, you don’t have to face him, you don’t need to follow any guidelines, you just go with what feels good to you.

Watch his reaction and if he looks like he’s excited, push it a little further. He’s not going to be bored, so you don’t have any worries there.

If you want to, practice in the mirror beforehand but know that the very fact you’re willing to wiggle your hips just for him, will be enough to drive him crazy.

Is it okay if your girlfriend is dancing with another man?

The Dane is a shadowy figure whose whereabouts and identity remain unknown. What we do know is that he is really, really good at dating. He's been on more dates than you can imagine on the long bar, and he's here to help the average guy take his dating game up a notch - or even several.


Hi nerd friend,

So I've been dating this girl for a few months now. In general, everything is fine. But last night she did something that upset me. We were at the club with some other people we knew and I went to the bathroom and when I got back she was dancing with another guy I know. Nothing extraordinary, but they were definitely close. I saw it happening across the room. When I approached them, she returned to dancing with me and acted as if nothing had happened. It seems to me that this is inappropriate, but I do not know for sure. This is fine? What should I do?

- Danny Dancing


Hello Danny Dancing,

Nope. Dancing with another man after you've gone to the bathroom is not normal. I don't mean it's "not okay" as I would say cheating is "not okay". Or killing someone is "not normal". It's just a minor infringement - so minor that some people might not file it. But this is a violation - you feel strange. And bad. If it wasn't, you wouldn't be emailing me about it.

Not everyone will agree with me. In fact, I expect some people reading this to call me petty, or insecure, regressive, patriarchal, or paranoid if I say that you should be worried about your girlfriend dancing with another guy, especially that they weren't, as far as I can tell, a direct bump and screech. These people can point out that often people of the opposite sex dance innocently with each other.

Which is absolutely, 100% true. If it's a fucking square dance in Idaho. Or if it's at a wedding and the groom is doing a cute waltz with his grandma. Or in any other magical culture that is not as fraught with sexual permissiveness as ours. But we are in North America, the land of meetings and awkwardness. We live in a culture where asking someone out on a date can make you feel uncomfortable, but where some people pass oral sex off as lollipops. The boundaries here are complex and subtle, and everything makes sense. In our society, in the club, dancing is paid. And anyone who doesn't know this will discover it within ten minutes of visiting that club that caters to the young and horny in their area.

And your girlfriend dancing with another man is really interesting because it's almost innocent, if you know what I mean. Like, she did not give him a blowjob and did not confess her secret feelings. It did not cross any major borders. But she blurred the lines a bit. She posted something. A bit of sexual energy or just the promise of physical contact. It's not empty. It's hardly anything, but, again, it's something. It's in the same category as her receiving a friendly message from a male friend that you didn't hear about at 1am on a Saturday. The text can simply say "hello, how are you. " Nothing particularly bad happened. The guy did not ask if she would like to visit his villa in Spain or something like that. But at 1 am on a Saturday, right? Time loaded. This is when the cries for prey are heard. So it sort of ties in with a lot of unhealthy behavior.

If your girlfriend doesn't have any social skills, she knows where the conventional boundaries are around that, and she knows she's rubbing against them. This can lead us to a number of different conclusions. Maybe that means she enjoys male attention a little more than being a strict, old-fashioned monogamist. Or maybe it means she wants to play with you a little - test your boundaries, see how you react, to see what she can get away with. In any case, not much.

Unfortunately, there are indeed many people who like to have power in relationships, who like to test you. And despite what the types of red pills might tell you, this is what is happening across the gender spectrum - straight men, gay men, non-binary people, whoever. Manipulative people do exist, and they are usually very beautiful and charming. That's how they get away with cruelty. Like the dude who constantly leaves nice comments on selfies of single women he knows, assuring his girlfriend that he doesn't mean anything, thus making her feel crazy. Such a person.

I was pretty close to it. For a terrible few months, I dated Daniela, who was hot, charismatic, smart and crazy. The madness has taken the form of these endless double standards regarding contact with the opposite sex. If I were to stare at another woman for that long, or have a merry conversation with, say, an attractive barista in our café, she would go berserk. But she was constantly checking on other guys, hanging out with her ex-boyfriends, and basically breaking all her own rules.

All she did was a little power grab. When I quit smoking, she bought cigarettes in front of me, although she only smoked. She casually told me about how she had just talked to her ex-fiancé and how his career was going brilliantly during some of my job problems. And yes, when we went out to dance, she sometimes danced with other men. She always wanted to let me know that I was on thin ice, that my behavior was limited, and that she could act with impunity. When I objected to this, she was frightened. The relationship only lasted because she was really good at suppressing my self-esteem, which at the time was much more fragile.

Anyway. Back to you I would not recommend any action here. Ditching someone because they danced with another man is extreme. Hell, even fighting over this is extreme. But bring it up with her. See how she reacts. If she defends it or taunts you for being offended, then this is a really bad sign. You are allowed to feel uncomfortable when she dances with other men, as she dances with you. These feelings are real, and if you express them directly and without accusations, she should listen and understand.

It might be easier not to talk about it. You can avoid heated arguments. You can avoid all the nastiness that comes up when one person says to another, "You did something that hurt me. " But if you let it slip away and don't come up with anything about it, it might not be an isolated incident. Bad relationships usually do not develop overnight - they are the result of slowly deteriorating patterns of behavior. She may not be trying to hurt you, but if she does and you don't tell her, how can she know how you feel?

In general, don't do anything rash just yet. But be careful out there. If your girlfriend keeps saying that she doesn't have to respect your feelings, you should trust her.

12 best films about dancers and dancing

Top best films about obsessed dancers, modern, street and classical dances, about exhausting workouts, about self-confidence, and, of course, a little bit about love. On this list, Zac Efron will light up and John Travolta will suffer, Patrick Swayze will drive you crazy, and Channing Tatum will tease the imagination, Christina Aguilera will conquer the dance peaks, Catherine Zeta Jones will kill, and Jessica Alba will charge powerful hip-hop. In general, there will be music, cinema and dance, which not only make you twitch your foot to the beat, but also inspire with their devotion to art.

Baby is a good girl from a wealthy family. The heroine is going to study economics, her full name is a tribute to the first female US minister, and the girl’s career plans include work in the Peace Corps. The whole life is scheduled, and ahead of the heroine is a small family vacation with her parents and older sister in a mountain boarding house. This is where all thoughts about the economy and strong women instantly fly out of Baby's head, because, as is often the case with good girls, she falls in love. Hot and dirty. Okay, actually, not so dirty.

Baby's chosen one is an employee of the boarding house - an animator-dancer Johnny. His dance partner Penny gets a temporary leave of absence due to an unplanned pregnancy, and Baby, who is sincerely trying to help the unfortunate dancer, agrees to replace Penny on one of the evening's programs. Baby learns to dance, and a real talent opens up for her, but the girl fails to control herself when Johnny's hands are on her. Well, what will mom and dad say to their little princess now?


The film is beautiful not only for dancing, soundtrack and another great love that changes the sign of social inequality to "equal". The catch in this movie is that the holidays are over, Johnny is leaving, and Baby is returning to his pre-scheduled life. The drama was not overdone, and the summer adventures remain an exciting memory for both Baby and viewers.

Magic Mike, 2012

The protagonist works as a stripper and takes the young conqueror of the dance floor Adam as his padawan. Mike wants to teach the latter how to dance, work as a team, and use the power without going over to the dark side. And the temptations in the world of professional striptease are no less than in the Star Wars universe. This movie will not only show a lot of men hot as a grandmother's soup, but also talk about what real male solidarity and friendship are - Danny Ocean is not the only one familiar with the principle of brother for brother.


Chicago, 2002

Genre: musical, drama, comedy
Director: Rob Marshall (“Heys Memoirs”)
script (Suml Breaking Dawn Saga)
Cast: Renee Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Richard Gere
MovieSearch rating: 7.7
IMDb rating: 7.1

Further in the top is the record holder for the number of prestigious awards. The tape received thirteen Oscar nominations and eventually took six statuettes of a man with a sword: for best film and best costume design, for sound and editing, as well as for best song, production design and best supporting actress (Katherine Zeta-Jones).

The impressive list of accomplishments may somewhat offset the fact that the film isn't all about dance. The events unfold in Chicago in the 20s, the main character, a housewife Roxy, dreams of becoming famous. Her idol is the daring cabaret prima donna Velma Kerry. This artist never stops playing, and her voice and movements delight the crowds of spectators. However, Roxy and Velma very soon find themselves on the same stage - in a women's prison, and not because you can't be so beautiful in the world. Both heroines are accused of murder, and they have to fight not for the love of the public, but for life.


The scenery in the film changes frequently: cabarets, restaurants, a women's prison, a courtroom. But no matter what happens, Roxy and Velma's show goes on: the music is on and the dance is on.

And again, the story of the cabaret artist is in the top, but now in modern times. The film is about neo-burlesque, a stage show genre that has returned from a banal striptease to its nobler roots. So there will be a lot of revealing costumes, daring numbers and luxurious vocals by Christina Aguilera.

But you should not wait for the original plot - again "Cinderella". Orphan Ali arrives in Las Vegas and proves to the owner of a popular burlesque club that her feet are worthy not only of glass slippers covered with sequins and feathers, but also of a big stage.

Films about dancing are sometimes more than “dance helped me open myself and get rid of my complexes!”, And even more than dramatic kisses in the rain at the end of a powerful couples number. The Black Swan, for example, is as far from such melodramas as possible - it is a deep psychological thriller. So psychological that students of the Faculty of Psychology can use it to defend courses on Freudianism in the cinema or what illnesses come from childhood with teddy-pink bears and fanatical mothers.

The young ballerina Nina gets the main role in Swan Lake and begins to become paranoid: she doesn’t reach the previous prima, and the other ballerina is jealous and wants to take the role away, and the director still makes strange hints and calls her frigid names. Nina has many problems, and everything is in her head, and the main question of the film is which swan will prevail over the heroine's cockroaches.


The film was awarded the Venice Film Festival, and Natalie Portman collected an Oscar, Golden Globe and Saturn for Best Actress. By the way, Mila Kunis for her role also received "Saturn" as the best supporting actress.

Production: USA
Genre: Drama
Director: Ann Fletcher ("27 wedding")
Scenario: Duan Duan Adler in Rolya in rolax Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan
MovieSearch Rating: 7.6
IMDb Rating: 6.5

This film began a whole film-dance saga: now the Steps franchise has five films. But the opening tape differs significantly from the sequels: here the characters dance most of the time in the cozy hall of the art school, and the final performance looks more like a personal exam than a large-scale dance battle. Other parts of the series go deeper into hip-hop and feature dance teams and tournaments.

The main character is a petty bully Tyler. The guy is fond of street dancing and vandalism in the company of friends from the ghetto. One day, another prank gets out of control and Tyler is sentenced to 200 hours of community service at an art school. While sweeping the floor, the hero turns his attention to Nora, a senior student preparing for a big screening. Tyler can't admit to himself and his buddies (does everyone have Dud's voice in their head?) that Nora, with her classic moves and pink dreams, makes the hero sympathetic. Therefore, Tyler behaves according to the laws of the kindergarten: he grimaces, rebels and teases the girl. But soon the hero gets a chance to replace Nora's dance partner, and now Tyler realizes that he is capable of something more than petty hooliganism.


By the way, three years after the premiere of the film, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan (the actors who played the main roles) got married, so love on the screen can be called real - and this is not a musty epithet.

Dance with your heart, 2019

Thirteen years after the release of the first "Step Up", hip-hop and classics will unite again. This did not require bloody sacrifices, and no one has been waiting in Azkaban for these thirteen years. Just fresh French dance melodrama follows a proven storyline: a boy in love with a sharp and daring rhythm meets a fragile ballerina girl who seems to have just been taken off the Christmas tree. The guys decide to team up and enter a dance competition with their own style: hip-hop ballet. Or a balehop. Chipolet. Ballet pop.


In general, the name is not so important - movements and feelings are important.

Rumba, 2008

Production: France, Belgium
Genre: melodrama, musical comedy
Directors, scriptwriters and performers of the main roles: Dominic Gordon, Bruno Romi
Rating Cinema Opest0064 7.3
IMDb rating: 6.9

This is probably the most unusual film in the collection. The main characters here do not look like a couple that Noah would have chosen to restore humanity, there are almost no dialogues, but the facial expressions, movements, scenery and costumes are so telling that everything that happens resembles a silent movie. Lively and bright, funny and awkward - almost insane in the best sense of the word picture.

Fiona and Dom work as teachers and devote all their free time to Latin American dances. The guys won all the local competitions, but they continue to enjoy the incendiary rhythms like for the first time, and the love of the couple for each other is just as indestructible. The sounds of the rumba, which have become the main soundtrack of Fiona and Dom's life, will not change even when the heroes have an accident and lose their home. The audience is increasingly uncomfortable laughing, the comedy is getting blacker, but Fiona and Dom continue to move forward in their favorite rhythm.

A touching film about how a kind aunt dancer tries to change the unhappy childhood of the guys from the streets with the help of dancing. Of the pleasant bonuses, there is Jessica Alba, who does a good job with the role of a dancer, a storyline with the work of the heroine as a choreographer on the set of clips for hip-hop stars, cute kids from the ghetto who have not yet received certificates, but have already contacted drug dealers, and a cute basketball player in love with the main character.

Many people have a box of painful trophies of youth at home: someone has a school medal or a diploma from the Olympics, which reminds you that working as a sales consultant is not the limit of intellectual capabilities; someone has awards and photos from a children's camp that whisper that office clerks are not about creativity and leadership qualities. The main character, the harmless fat man Bruce, has awards from dance competitions in this box. As a teenager, Bruce was forced to give up his favorite hobby due to an injury, and from that moment on, the whole life of the hero is a static bachelor swamp. But one day, a charming new boss comes to Bruce's company, who, it turns out, loves salsa.


The main character will have to throw off his gray mask (well, a couple of kilos) and shine again on the dance floor in a shiny shirt in order to conquer a colleague and reanimate his own life.

Reigning Kinopiopt : 6. 2

The first film in the collection based on true events. Pierre Dulein, a well-known professional dancer and ballroom dance instructor, comes to work at a school where his wards turn out to be hooligans who are serving their sentences after school. These teenagers have come to think that ballroom dancing is a hobby for regulars of the toilet-soaking school watch, and tough guys and girls should wear snapbacks and dance closer to the floor. Pierre Dulain will have to teach children the lesson that the ability to keep your back straight sometimes means being able to take a punch and not bend under the difficulties of life, and to feel a strict ballroom rhythm means having self-esteem.
