In case you don't know what the dutty wine is, it's a dance. Here is a video of a little girl doing the dutty wine <a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=6JUsAiJ6W9g" target="_blank">http://youtube.com/watch?v=6JUsAiJ6W9g</a><br>
She's really pretty good and I think it's sooo cute! But a friend of mine thought it was too sexual and said she wouldn't let her daughter dance like that...<br><br>
What do you think?

I think it's cute. I didn't see it as sexual at all.

Hey, that gal's got RHYTHM! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I didn't see anything overtly sexual about it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">:<br><br><br>
Maybe your friend is seeing something that isn't there? It's too bad when people ascribe sexual motives to kids having fun <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I think the dance is goofy-looking honestly. I don't see anything sexual about it.<br><br>
My vote will be for neither! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Well at the time I thought to show her the video, she had just got done showing me how she finally learned the dutty wine herself, and in adults it really is a somewhat sexual dance, so I guess she felt it was inappropriate for a child to dance like that. But I disagree. I see it as innocent. But then again I might not want my daughter dancing like that in public if some weirdo was staring at her.

I have never heard of the Dutty Wine dance (am I out of it or just old, lol) but I think it's sexual for sure. Not necessarily the video in the OP, but that little girl is mimicking this....<br><br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqgUhD59DWI&NR=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqgUhD59DWI&NR=1</a>

Since I've never heard of dutty wine I didn't know it was actually a 'sexual dance'.<br><br>
Still I don't see the girl dancing provacatively. Seriously. I thought she was cute <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

well, the tushy wiggling and pelvic thrusting were a bit extreme <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bigeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bigeyes"><br><br>
But the little girl wasn't dancing like that so.....?

I'm no movement expert, but seeing it made me think more of Urban Bush Women and some sort of tribal dance than hooch.

Nothing sexual there that I could see, just a kid having fun hopefully. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

Okay, I'm changing my answer. I'm now very disturbed by the little girl mimicking this - (someone posted that this shows an adult doing the dutty wine). I had to sign up for youtube since it was for viewers 18 and over.<br><br><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?search=&mode=related&v=8AAQQeqgNL4" target="_blank">http://youtube.com/watch?search=&mod...&v=8AAQQeqgNL4</a><br><br>
This is why: Yeah, the little girl in the OP video looked cute and pretty innocent doing this dance (she was adorable actually), but she was MIMICKING this very sexual dance. So although she didn't actually do it 100%"correctly" she obviously was trying to mimic this dance, which is quite sexual.

I think the video in the OP was completely innocent and pretty cute. The little girl looked like she was having fun, and she didn't look like she was mimicking the far more sexual adult version of the dance. I have seen some kids imitating the more sexual version of it though, and it was rather disturbing...lots of pelvis thrusting, etc.

Well, the title of the dance is 'dutty wine' which from Jamaican to english would be translated as "dirty" wind. The little girl is doing it in a very childish way though and i think it's super cute. But I would NOT post that on the internet.

The little girl in the OP doen't look sexual at all. But yeah it seems she's mimicking a very sexual dance, which I think is inappropriate. I've seen some neighbor girls shaking there booties like some of the women and it's so not okay to me.
