    Do guys really mind? I somehow didn't think they did... :roll:

    You kind of get used to it and it becomes normal, unless the guy's creepy. I remember it freaking me out quite a bit at first.

    pygmalian...I posted a comment in the ladies only thread not realizing that you started a new one so let me just repeat myself...

    like I said, I am not at all uncomfortable myself...a bit of a thrill for this old married woman 8) ...but I can't help wondering if this happens as often for others who dance standard as it does for me....and whether the guy notices or minds....It seems unavoidable, particularly in tango ...and is probably old hat for an instructor...afterall, my chest is constantly up to his and I don't think a thing of it but when ever something goes on ahem...lower....I am just assuming that he is as dismissive of it as I am...yes?....having been married a long time it is just a bit of an adjustment to be that physically close...not unpleasant, :wink: just a bit of an adjustment....am assuming that most male instructors do not give it a second thought....

    being a male instructor i dont even reliaze it anymore. when i first started it was kind of embarassing at first but you get over that real quick. i doubt your instructor minds.

    It'll be interesting to see what the guys say about this, for sure.

    Yes. I heard what you said about being okay with body contact. I just couldn't think of a different catchy thread title that would get people to read and respond to your question. 8) :D I'm dying to see some of the responses, myself.

    (And why the heck doesn't your instructor just wear briefs? :roll: :wink: )

    Well I don't dance standard, but smooth. But when I have danced that close I don't contact them that often. But when I do it's not a big deal. I'm much more concerned with dancing and any,...,incidental contact,....,ahem,.... is just that. Incidental.

    No, I don't mind. :roll: :oops: :lol:

    I am not about to inquire as to why any man chooses a particular undergarment :lol: ...I am feverishly hoping that he doesn't think I've given it a bit of notice...in fact, I am a bit squirrelly about this becoming its own thread lest someone actually thinks they know me...I would just die a thousand deaths :oops: .....however, If I was speculating I would imagine it is a "staying cool" thing...don't wish to elaborate on why I think that.....geez...I think I have said enough...just glad for the male instructor view that it is no longer an issue to him...as far as smooth, no it doesn't happen often then....

    Yeah. You seem a bit ... internet cautious. That's why I didn't include your name in the quoted paragraph. 8) Don't worry, though. I think your question is pretty innocuous, and doesn't identify you in the least. A lot of us have wondered, I think. 8) :friend:

    which part luh? The part about close body contact, or the part about being internet cautious?

    You do need to go to bed luh.


    Just think about it though, as you go to sleep. Something will click maybe?

    I'll go - in just a few seconds - after we quit talking, and after I've taken a shower.

    I have no idea what they are talking about either. I read this around noon today, and I am reading it again around 6pm. I thought maybe someones response would give me a clue what they were talking about.

    I am guessing I do not understand because of one of two things.
    1) I do not do ballroom, I only enjoy watching it, so it might be an inside thing.

    2) I am a guy, and I am very bad at reading between the lines when it comes to women. If any women out there can translate the question into man speak, I would appreciate it.

    Translation:

    As a guy, in closed position are you concerned with (and how much are you bothered by) a woman being able to feel your privates through your clothings?
