Message:
This is semi-related to the other topic posted about Fight clubs. A couple of interesting articles on the Internet describes the practice of a version of sexual music chairs in certain music clubs. Basically, girls that are not wearing panties and have on mini-skirts, wait until the music stops and then they "sit down" on the boys sitting in the chairs. These types of event supposedly were "quietly" going on in the 80's in Rio de Janeiro, but exploded all over Brazil after Luciana Gimenez helped make them more popular.

I have a few questions for anybody willing to answer them:

. How popular are such "sex funk ball" events in brazil?

. Are the "sex funk balls" isolated to just very poor and wild teenagers or are these type events popular with the older "20 something" crowd in Brazil?

. What factors like age, sex, economic status, race, etc… play in the sex funk ball events?

Carioca dailies like O Dia and Extra, but also O Globo, Jornal do Brasil and Tribuna da Imprensa talked plenty about the subject in the first quarter of last year. That's when some authorities intevened after hearing stories of minor girls who were getting pregnant because of the practice. But I haven't heard about these parties in recent months. It doesn't mean, however, they are not happening.

Keep funking.

Hi,
I'm the Swedish student who posted the message about the
funk balls, but I've also heard about these kinds of afilliations
within the funk ball culture, where did you first hear of them?
Then to Zé, thanks for your reply, it amazes me though, that
you knew so much about funk balls, but not about this type of
party, and yes, I have done my research, and did know that
petrolium was a big income/export in Brazil and also that
tourism subvented a large part of the Brazilian economy. I
never intended to hype the funk ball story up into oblivion,
merely to cause harm to the tourism industry, I have neither
the power nor the intention, I merely wanted to create
awareness, to create a forum for discussion and eventually
assitance.
Take care, S.

sorry, I made a mistake, although Brazil did at one time
consider the option of exporting petrolium, something many
south american countries pondered, I was misinformed. You
seem to be very well read Zé, and although you mock me (and
others,) for my naiveté, I would really enjoy you sharing your
expertise, since you seem to very well read. I would
appreciate any kind of information abou the areas within
Brazilian sub-cultures which I have mentioned.
thanks, S.

Sorry if I mocked you, writing in english is not my preferred form of communication, so I get nervous and sometimes it is hard to write with my limited vocabulary.

As to those sub-cultures, I'm realy not your best source of information, since I try to avoid them as I can. I'd suggest going to www.uol.com.br or brazilian sites and use their chat forum for better first hand information. Having someone capable to translate from portuguese may help.

If you wish to contact me directly try ascote@rionet.com.br ,and I may help you with wharever I can.
