Quetion: Why do Baptist not make love standing upright?
Answer: They are afraid  some one will see their shadow and think they are  dancing.

Religion wise, mine prohibits it. I have never been able to identify with dancing, and it usually comes across as abhorrent. It just feels...wrong, for one reason or another, and those times I could bring myself to dance, public or private, it always felt unpleasant and unnatural. I still feel uncomfortable tolerating, dumb as it sounds.

P.S. age 19.

Never could dance.  You know what they say about white boys...can't jump or dance. ;)  I have no coordination and therefore no personal interest in dancing.  However I find religions that restrict members from doing it to be a little weird.

You know, I'm really surprised that no one has mentioned the long history of Mummer's Dances!
