Aside from the fact there is friction between the two partners, what is it about music and that slow rhythmic movement that drives a person crazy with passion and desire?

This might stem back to when you're in the womb and the most consistent thing you can probably hear is the beat of your mummys heart.

However, the fact that the music is slow and is far more intimate enables you to concentrate on the other person far more so than if you were bopping along to some hard hose trance !!...actually..that can be good too !!...but ...slow music is quiet also...therefore you can interact vocally...or you can perceive body language easier...because as you say there is far more contact.

personally, I find ballads extremely evocative...and not just words..instrumentals too....

Slow music helps to add focus to the moment

Mam..it must be quite awkward when you're out shopping then and there's a ballad playing in the Mall !!...how do you control yourself ?  ;)

LOL! If I was in the mall and we only have one real mall here.A couple mini ones, I would probably faint dead away or find myself in a world of trouble because I would be whipped for playing ballads in this place! LOL Humboldt county is not Known for it's love of balads.. although their are small pockets of admirers such as myself who enjoy them.. I would say never in your or my life time at our mall! I love ballads especially intumentals!!! I like them all!

Sir,I have Very good self control and do not have that partner to slow dance with,.... now don't you think it might look a tad peculiar Me grabbing the first young man within arms length and swooping down on him like a vulture.. I think I might be  find myself sitting qiuetly in the poke Trying to remember why I love ballads and slow dancing!! I can count on one hand the number of times my husband danced with me in the 27 years we were together, literally not Joking... He hated Dancing and still does, that will never change but I loved it!! I must say I am getting a bit too old to start now!

It's all about BARRY WHITE THE SEX GOD!!!!!.....RIP Oh might Barry White  [:-'(]

Slow music is grand, dancing that little bit closer, dancing cheek to cheek (facial cheeks that is Neil  ;) ) , the mood, the lighting, the sense that you are the only two people in the world, the romance, the heat, the energy, the feeling and feelings, the bond, the laughs, the tears, the good and the bad, not really the ugly, being there with each other for each other, the magic, the moment, the future...........well that's just me though, don't know if it is the same for anyone else.

I'm not any good at dancing. But when I've had a few too many I don't really care too much what I look like  ;)
But as for a slow dance I can't really recall any  :(

Yes I am particularly fond of slow dancing. I like to watch all kinds of dancing and would like to take a few classes. Mostly like to have a nice dance partner to share the Dance!
