Abstract

CARDOSO, Fernando Luiz et al. Bodyness and sexuality of street dancers: axé and hip hop. Rev. bras. educ. fís. esporte [online]. 2011, vol.25, n.4, pp. 663-672. ISSN 1807-5509.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1807-55092011000400010.

We analyzed selected aspects of the bodyness and sexuality of hip hop and axé dancers (35 men and 49 women) in comparison with non-dancer controls (21 men and 19 women) through anonymous questionnaire. The axé dancers were the most satisfied with their sexual lives, with sexual preliminaries and who liked more to masturbate when compared with the hip hop dancers and controls. Axé dancers of both sexes presented a strong link between their sexuality and their corporal knowledge and affective connections. Men dancers were more focused in their genitals and gave stronger sexual emphasis to libido rather than affectivity.
