Goyang Dangdut: In The Line of Pornography?
Reef - Australia
Her hips moving, thrusting back and forth wilder and wilder. The audiences became more hysterical. Some children were so engrossing to watch every movement of the sexy dancer...did not quite know what was all about.
I knew what to expect before I clicked my keyboard on my computer to watch some of hot and erotic goyang dangduts. Judging by the titles of the songs, almost everybody will know what to expect. Therefor I wasn't quite surprised anymore when in the next one hour or so my eyes started gluing to the screen. Dumbstruck....and yet felt a bit reluctant to stop straight away. The more I watched, the more made me more curious. My skin crawled.
Yes, for the sake of this article, I made myself available to watch a series of goyang dangduts from various events and singers from West Java, East Java and Central Java. The national reputation ones and the local ones. And eventually, satisfying enough to provide evidences I came to the conclusion and dare to say yes, it is not an understatement to say that goyang dangdut is indeed closed to the line of pornography. I am neither a dangdut lover nor dangdut hater. But sad to say, what I witness with my very own eyes, I hate to say that I agree with the statement.
I can't understand why all those young beautiful sexy singers felt so inhibited moaning and hip swaying when they knew for sure that many underage children watched in awe and so mesmerised what they saw are beyond their imagination for their innocent tender eyes. Whilst most of adults seemed to enjoy and even some of the blokes sheepishly jumped on the stage and sang along with the singer and started move their bodies against the singer's body and there were no attempt to hide their merriment to throw some thousand rupiah between the singer cleavages. In the background the sound of music became more and more alluring and inviting.....
She could afford to buy a luxury house as a result of her popularity and infamous drilling dance. When most Indonesian media focused on this phenomenon, I was so eager to see myself what kind of so the name : drilling dance. I was living in Oz land when all the fuss started to get more and more attention. So basically I had no clue at all about this infamous drilling dance. Now after quite some years when I am able to access Internet and you tube, I think I feel a 'privilege' (tongue in cheek) to see what drilling dance is about. And to be honest, I am quite awestruck by the daring action. Trapped between ashamed and wanted, I kept on watching these dances again and again until I reached such contentment to finally decide to write this article.
In many city, where Inul, DP and some other more were scheduled to sing and dance, in the last minutes the local authority put off their performances. These singers were denied access to perform in their areas. The singers themselves seemed not to be bothered with all the banning and they still sway their hips in other cities, who still allow them to entertain the dangdut lovers. And the funny thing were : they trumpeted their voice too and cried loudly that whoever denied their access are simply ignorant and no sense of art.....!!! What a joke........!
