    Yes it's a good site - though I wasn't just trying to troll people and waste people's time, I genuinely wanted to know if what I described sounded like something that happens since some people have described dance teachers to to be a little touchy.

    Good that that's not the case.

    Then why describe a scenario from your imagination, instead of giving an actual example as described by other dance students? Your explaination doesn't cut it.

    Good teachers can be hands-on, but they poke and prod you to get you to move your body correctly, not play with students' bellies.

    I'm a dance teacher. We have enough challenges without someone making up weird-ass scenarios about what an imaginary teacher might do.

    Try again, Larry. Say, "I'm sorry for starting out with a stupid lie and I promise not to do it again." Then tell us about your connection to and interest in dance and we'll go from there.

    I don't really remember what the actual example was, but it was nothing close to what I described. I think it was the poking you mentioned.

    I'm sorry for starting out with a stupid lie and I promise not to do it again. While I think belly dancing is a great dance form, I wouldn't go out and see it since I am as someone described a "creepy fetishist" and belly dancers may be uncomfortable with someone with a belly fetish watching them.

    I'll try to make clear how far I am on the "creepy" factor - now there's nothing wrong with finding bellies sexually attractive however I certainly can see it as creepy to sign up on a bellydancing site to make up a story for a question.

    That being said, I'm not the type that would ask that in the hopes that if teachers were that touchy feely then I'd try become a teacher. That's not just creepy, that's lock that freak up type of creepy.

    While I'm not a mess like that, I can understand if people aren't comfortable with me being here as I still did a fairly creepy thing [or very creepy depending on your opinion] so if I were to be banned for it... Well, that's up to you folks.

    There's plenty of porn out there that suits your fetish without coming into a safe space where bellydancers talk shop. Don't you think it's a bit rude of you to come into OUR space and foist YOUR fetish on us without any concern for our consent?

    There's nothing wrong with having a fetish. It's a normal part of being a healthy, sexually active person. Where I take issue is when you remove consent from the equation. There are better places to fulfil your needs on the internet and google will help you find them. We have been more than patient with you. Perhaps it is time for you to tuck your tail between your legs and wander off to a more suitable space to explore your fetish in a mutually consenting manner.

    It is rude, and you have. I suppose I should wander off.

    Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

    Okay. You apologized. Apology accepted. Behave yourself and as far as I'm concerned, you can stay. Being a belly man is no weirder than being a boob man or leg man... but be respectful from here on out, 'kay?

    Thank you - I would, but some members have expressed interest in me leaving so perhaps it's for the best I go.

    Up to you. Bad start needn't be fatal.
