Goa – 30 Jan 2009- Staff. Dance clubs in the Indian clubbing district of Goa are reacting to the latest “Grumpy Bumpy” (लिंग योनि विस्फोट) incident which has left three critically injured in the last month alone.
The debate stems from a string of accidents centered around an increasingly popular dance move in which participants make direct pelvic contact and gyrate wildly to bass intensive electronic music. At least three people in Goa have been hospitalized in related incidents.
Gayatri Spivak, owner of Palace Grind in Goa, recalls a particluarly gruesome night when a couple suffered collectively from a dislocated hip, three fractured wrists and multiple facial lacerations. “Awful, just awful. Like two very aroused puppets for whom the strings had been cut,” she said, describing the accident.
Chief District Safety Enforcement Officer (मनुष्य जो एक औरत को नहीं मिल सकता) Sunil Ramachadran highlighted the dangers of the practice and urged caution when out at night: “Bandits or robbers may follow you home, but this danger lurks within you. We must not allow our young people to engage in such dangerous actions.”
Others however, counter that accidents simply happen. “Wherever we go, there are restrictions. You cross the street, and a car hits you. You dance and a woman tears your pants or strains a muscle. It happens,” says Andreas Merkel, a German national vacationing in the area. “If you regulate the crotch, what’s next? Foam padding on the dance floor?” he added.
