Here is Crossfade's ten-point guide to making love in the club.

10. Lambada (The Forbidden Dance)
This Brazilian fusion of preexisting South American rump-shaking traditions became an international sensation in the 1980s. But it wasn't the original Forbidden Dance. In the 1920s, Maxixe (an antecedent and influence to the Lambada that also started in Brazil) was the first sensual dance craze to be described as prohibido. But as The Lambada Industry continued to induce Lambada Mania, they naturally played up the dance's provocative tone and short-ass miniskirts. Movies like Lambada and The Forbidden Dance, both released in the 1990s, immortalized the trend as truly profane.
9. Dirty Dancing
