The Downside Of Ecstasy

In a morally corrupt world where instant gratification is at the order of the day, ecstasy can be found in the form of a little pill. A popular drug amongst party-goers, ecstasy provides an initial ‘rush’ followed by feelings of calmness and well-being to those around, often combined with a heightened perception of colour and sound. It gives a feeling of energy and enables the user to dance for hours on end. But no feeling of happiness provided by a pill can be more than an illusion, and the effects of these drugs are far from a pretty picture.

One of the reasons for fatalities caused by the use of ecstasy is directly related to the fact that this drug is most often used at parties. The stimulant effects of the drug, which enable the user to dance for extended periods, combined with the hot, crowded conditions usually found at raves can lead to dehydration, hyperthermia, and heart or kidney failure.

While it is not as addictive as heroin or cocaine, MDMA (the active drug in ecstasy)can cause other adverse effects including nausea, hallucinations, chills, sweating, increases in body temperature, tremors, involuntary teeth clenching, muscle cramping, and blurred vision. MDMA users also report after-effects of anxiety, paranoia, and depression.

Because it is available in pill form and provides such euphoric feelings, ecstasy is often seen as harmless by uninformed individuals, and is widely available at many clubs and parties. Repeated use leads to a level of tolerance being built up, which means that the user requires more and more pills every time in order to achieve the same high as before.

This can lead to an MDMA overdose, which is characterised by high blood pressure, faintness, panic attacks, and, in more severe cases, loss of consciousness, seizures, and a drastic rise in body temperature. MDMA overdoses can be fatal, as they may result in heart failure or extreme heat stroke.

Hip Hop Dance Music

Need some tracks to play at a party, or just go out dancing to? Here’s my list of the best hip hop dance music out there today…

Gold Digger by Kanye West

Turn It Up by Chamillionaire

Bubber Band Man by T.I.

Hynotize by Young Jeezy

30 Something by Jay-Z

Ms. Jackson by Outkast

Get Low by Ying Yang twins

Lean Back by Fat Joe

Yeah by Usher

Get it on the floor by DMX

Pump it by  Black Eyed Peas

Blunt Ashes by Nas

Jesus Walks by Kanye West

Go Getta by Young Jeezy

Over Here Hustlin’ by Lil’ Wayne

Salt Shaker by Ying Yang Twins

So what makes these songs stand out as the best hip hop dance music? The video? Something that bumps at a club? Admittedly, the list is biased upon my personal preferences: I like the more heady lyrical stuff with a strong driving beat behind it, which leans towards Outkast, Nas, Eminem and early Kanye West tracks more so than tracks by Ying Yang Twins or Young Jeezy. However, I’ve included a few of their songs as well to round out the list.

I also tried to leave out most underground rap/hip hop songs to keep it as accessible as possible. Most, if not all of these songs could be played in clubs or show up on MTV as a rap video. Sure, I could play Dead Prez or Ras Kass, but most people at a party- at least the ones I go to- wouldn’t have a clue who they are. It’s strange, no matter how hot a a song is, you’ll usually get a better reaction if people know the music and can sing along with it. Guess that’s why there’s so many cover bands in bars… Lastly, I included several songs from the past few years, rather than just listing off a “what’s hot now” playlist of current music. Anyone who thinks GoldDigger won’t get a good reaction at a party is missing the point (unless it’s a wedding). 

If you want to learn more about good hip hop dance music, check out Pandora, a free radio service that plays music according to your selected genre. you can always delete the songs you don’t like, and save the music you think would work well at your party.

So that’s my list for now. What songs would you include in your list of hip hop dance music?

Ballroom Dancing – A Brief History

When you think of Ballroom dancing, you generally think of flowing gowns and dark tuxedos. You also think of beautiful, willowy, women and tall, dark, handsome men waltzing their way around the dance floor. However, ballroom dance is not just the Waltz, it is a lot more. From the elegant and stately waltz, a hot, sultry and sexy Tango or Paso Doble, or a good bit of lively fun like the Fox Trot, Jive or Quick Step, ballroom dancing is all of these.

Technically, ballroom dancing is defined as “Any of various, usually social dances in which couples perform set moves”. However, the word “ball” (not the child’s toy) comes from the Latin “ballare” meaning to dance and forms the base for the word ballroom (a room for dancing), ballet (a dance), and ballerina (a dancer).

Ballroom dancing was very popular among the gentry (or upper class) of England, in the late 18th and early 19th centuries and didn’t really catch on with the working class until the late 19th and early 20th century.

It wasn’t until the early 1920’s that competitive ballroom dancing began gaining popularity. As a result, the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (formerly known as The Imperial Society of Dance Teachers) formed a Ballroom Branch whose function was to standardize the ballroom dances.

Today, modern ballroom dancing revolves around five dances comprising: the Modern Waltz; the Viennese Waltz; the Slow Foxtrot; Tango; and the Quickstep.

Latin American ballroom is short for Latin and American – not a reference to Latin countries and its dances are the Samba; Rumba; Paso Doble; Cha-Cha; and the Jive.

The modern ballroom dances all involve a couple dancing in a closed hold and vary in tempo (beats per minute) and rhythm (structure). A closed hold involves 5 bodily points of contact between the couple. Three of these points involve the hands, the males left hand holding the females right, the females left hand on top of the males right upper arm (for the Tango the females hand would go behind his arm) and the males right hand on the females back resting on her left shoulder blade. The other two points of contact are the females left elbow resting on the males right elbow and the right side of the females chest touching the right side of the males chest. This dance posture provides a very elegant look as the couple floats across the dance floor and has its origins in the European royal courts.

There is some conjecture that the right side-to-right side contact of the closed hold may have originated from a time when men danced while wearing their swords, which were hung on their left sides. Additionally, this theory would also explain the counter clockwise movement around the dance floor as the man would’ve stood on the inside of the circle so he wouldn’t inadvertently hit any of the people watching the dancers with his sword as he danced past.

The dancing posture for Latin American ballroom varies from dance to dance with some dances using the closed hold and others where the partners hold each other with only one hand.

Both Modern Ballroom and Latin American Ballroom has been standardized for teaching purposes and has a set, internationally recognized vocabulary, technique, rhythm and tempo.

Why Am I Always So Hot? 4 Causes for Always Feeling Hot

There can be many different reasons for your problem – why am I always so hot? Feelings of intense heat are often referred to as ‘hot flushes’ and can affect both women and men. Here are some of the more usual reasons people suffer from this complaint.

The menopause

This is the natural change that every woman goes through at the end of her reproductive years. It can have many different effects on the body, but hot flushes are known to be one of the more common. However, these periods of feeling hot can start years before the menopause, and go on for a long while afterwards as well. If the menopause is the answer to your question ‘why am I always so hot?’ then your doctor can advise on the best course of action for you. There are many options, from natural ones through to hormone replacement therapy.


If you eat a diet which is high in spicy foods, then this can be a reason of having hot flushes. Certain foodstuffs, such as chilli, hot peppers or other spices can be a prime candidate for feeling very warm.

Certain medications

Especially those for hypertension, anti depressants or anti anxiety drugs can have flushes as a side effect. All drugs come with leaflet listing possible effects, so make sure you read it. If the problem becomes too bad, speak to your doctor who may be able to change the type of medication.

Certain illnesses

Some medical condition can be the cause, such as thyroid problems or some types of cancers. If you suffer from these then you will need to talk to a medical expert to find out what to do about them.

This is by no means an exhaustive list. If the problem persists then you will need to seek medical advice and ask your doctor ‘why am I always so hot?’

The Zumba Dance Sneaker Checklist

If you have been living under a rock for the past couple of years, then you will definitely not know about one of the hottest dance fitness crazes out there, Zumba. Zumba is a dance aerobics class that is done to rhythmic Latin music. It is an intense activity and it is very effective as individuals burned a lot of calories. One great thing about this is that they are able to lose weight while having fun.

It is very important that when you do this dance fitness class that you have the correct shoes. This article will provide a quick checklist is what you should look for when contemplating buying Zumba Dance Sneakers.

The Zumba Dance Sneaker Checklist

  • Comfort – when getting a sneaker to Zumba in, it is very important that the shoe is comfortable. You’ll be making a lot of moves while doing this activity and you need to ensure that the feet are not uncomfortable or the shoe is too tight and squeezing you.
  • Flexible – Sneakers that are flexible are perfect to dance in. These shoes will be able to handle all the turns, jumps, twists and movements that come with dancing to Latin music in the class. If it is too stiff, you may have a problem dancing and moving. Flexibility is muy importante!
  • Support – Support is very important as you will be doing a lot of moves and dancing. Going from side to side or even jumping on the spot will be intensive. As a result, you will need a sneaker that will be able to hold your foot in place. This will help to protect it against injury. Low cut sneakers are not recommended because they do not keep the foot firmly in place.
  • Grip – When looking for a shoe, you will not want one that has to watch grip on the bottom. This is why it is not recommended to get running sneakers to do Zumba in. If there is too much grip, it can cause a problem moving from side to side and there is even a possibility of injury occurring. Stay away from heavy grip sneakers, the ones with less grip are perfect.
  • The Shoes to Buy – If you are looking for some really great sneakers, get either shoes designed for dance fitness classes, cross trainers or sneakers that have all the features that we mentioned above. Some of the best brands to buy are Nike, Puma, Ryka and New Balance.

If you are searching for some nice Zumba Shoes, then it is a good idea to follow the checklist above. This checklist serves as a guideline as to what individuals should look for in a shoe if they are considering purchasing one for this intense dance aerobics class. Having the right sneaker is very important and it helps to keep your feet safe.

Advanced Salsa Dance Steps

Let me guess-you love salsa? And I don’t mean with chips, you love dancing salsa and even better when you’ve got a hot partner to dance with. That’s great! There is nothing like enjoying life well (and legally). If you’ve been dancing salsa for a while now, you know the basic forward and backward dancing steps. It’s really not that difficult to master anyway. It’s time to get an introductory lesson on some advanced salsa dance steps. Salsa is a cheeky dance with a lot of intricate footwork and eye-catching twists and turns.

What are some of these hot, salsa moves? A common turn is the sideway basic (also called the drop side) where you turn to the right and left instead of the typical front and back. The Cuban open step is stepping diagonally to the left and right sides and the side and cross step is taking a step sideways but crossing you’re the right leg over to the left leg.

The underarm turn the move you call when the woman is twirled clockwise by the man, and the inside turn is when it is done counter clockwise.

The spot turn is done by either the two dancers doing a full turn without moving from the spot they’re in. Extension is the basic movement when the man and woman break in different directions which cause arm tension. Cross body lead is basically switching positions with your partner in a counter clockwise direction. Reverse cross body lead is logically the opposite, which is switching positions in a clockwise manner. Basket is a type of hold when the man takes hold of the woman’s hands which are wrapped around her shoulders. She leans forward while the man leans backwards.

These are only a few of the steps you will learn more about when you progress in salsa. Of course it is always better to learn them not just by reading instructions on how it’s done, but by seeing it and doing it for yourself. Download a good salsa video and follow the dancers’ moves closely. It will give you something to bring with you the next time you go to dance class.

Codependency Co-Addiction – The Dance

Codependency: Don’t Dance!

The “codependency dance” requires two people: the pleaser/fixer and the taker/controller. This inherently dysfunctional dance requires two opposite but distinctly balanced partners: a codependent and a narcissist (or addict). Codependents, who are giving, sacrificing, and consumed with the needs and desires of others, do not know how to emotionally disconnect or avoid romantic relationships with individuals who are narcissistic – individuals who are selfish, self-centered, controlling, and harmful to them. Codependents habitually find themselves on a “dance floor” attracted to “dance partners” who perfectly match up to their uniquely passive, submissive and acquiescent dance style.

As natural followers of their relationship “dance,” codependents are passive and accommodating dance partners. Codependents find narcissistic dance partners deeply appealing. They are perpetually attracted to their narcissistic dance partner’s charm, boldness, confidence and domineering personality. When codependents and narcissists are paired up, the dancing experience sizzles with excitement – at least, in the beginning. After many “songs,” the enthralling and thrilling dance experience predictably transforms into drama, conflict, and feelings of neglect and being trapped. Even with chaos and conflict, neither of the two spellbound dancers dares to end their partnership. Despite the tumultuous and conflict-laden nature of their relationship, neither of these two opposite but dysfunctionally compatible dance partners feels compelled to sit the dance out.

When a codependent and narcissist come together in their relationship, their “dance” unfolds flawlessly: the narcissistic partner maintains the lead and the codependent follows. Their roles seem natural to them because they have actually been practicing them their whole lives. Because the codependent reflexively gives up their power and the narcissist thrives on power and control, the dance is perfectly coordinated. No one gets their toes stepped on.

Typically, codependents give of themselves much more than their partners give to them. As “generous” but bitter dance partners, they seem to be stuck on the dance floor, always waiting for the “next song,” at which time they naively hope that their narcissistic partner will finally understand their needs. Codependents confuse caretaking and sacrifice with loyalty and love. Although they are proud of their unwavering dedication to the person they love, they end up feeling unappreciated and used. Codependents yearn to be loved, but because of their choice of dance partner, find their dreams unrealized. With the heartbreak of unfulfilled dreams, codependents silently and bitterly swallow their unhappiness.

Codependents are essentially stuck in a pattern of giving and sacrificing, without the possibility of ever receiving the same from their partner. They pretend to enjoy the dance, but really harbor feelings of anger, bitterness, and sadness for not taking an active role in their dance experience. They are convinced that they will never find a dance partner who will love them for who they are, as opposed to what they can do for them. Their low self-esteem and pessimism manifests itself into a form of learned helplessness that ultimately keeps them on the dance floor with their narcissistic partner.

The narcissist dancer, like the codependent, is attracted to a partner who feels perfect to them: someone who lets them lead the dance while making them feel powerful, competent and appreciated. In other words, the narcissist feels most comfortable with a dancing companion who matches up with their self-absorbed and boldly selfish dance style. Narcissist dancers are able to maintain the direction of the dance because they always find partners who lack self-worth, confidence and who have low self-esteem – codependents. With such a well-matched companion, they are able to control both the dancer and the dance.

Although all codependent dancers desire harmony and balance, they consistently sabotage themselves by choosing a partner who they are initially attracted to, but will ultimately resent. When given a chance to stop dancing with their narcissistic partner and comfortably sit the dance out until someone healthy comes along, they typically choose to continue their dysfunctional dance. They dare not leave their narcissistic dance partner because their lack of self-esteem and self-respect makes them feel like they can do no better. Being alone is the equivalent of feeling lonely, and loneliness is too painful a feeling to bear.

Without self-esteem or feelings of personal power, the codependent is incapable of choosing mutually giving and unconditionally loving partners. Their choice of a narcissistic dance partner is connected to their unconscious motivation to find a person who is familiar – someone who is reminiscent of their powerless and, perhaps, traumatic childhood. Sadly, codependents are children of parents who also flawlessly danced the dysfunctional codependent/narcissistic dance. Their fear of being alone, their compulsion to control and fix at any cost, and their comfort in their role as the martyr who is endlessly loving, devoted, and patient, is an extension of their yearning to be loved, respected and cared for as a child.

Although codependents dream of dancing with an unconditionally loving and affirming partner, they submit to their dysfunctional destiny. Until they decide to heal the psychological wounds that ultimately compel them to dance with their narcissistic dance partners, they will be destined to maintain the steady beat and rhythm of their dysfunctional dance.

Through psychotherapy and, perhaps, a 12-step recovery program, the codependent can begin to recognize that their dream to dance the grand dance of love, reciprocity and mutuality is indeed possible. Through therapy and a change of lifestyle, codependents can build (repair) their tattered self-esteem. The journey of healing and transformation will bring them feelings of personal power and efficacy that will foster a desire to finally dance with someone who is willing and capable of sharing the lead, communicating their movements, and pursuing a mutual loving rhythmic dance.

Facts About Zoloft And Hot Flashes

Medical researchers have conducted a few studies concerning Zoloft and hot flashes. A few more studies have been done concerning Paxil and hot flashes. Twice as many published studies have focused on black cohosh and hot flashes and there are even more concerning this herb and other symptoms related to menopause. Why so many studies?

Traditional herbal remedies are often the subject of scientific scrutiny, because modern medicine would like to either “prove” or “disprove” their effectiveness. They would also like to know “why” botanical remedies are effective; so, many studies revolve around isolating the active component.

Researchers began studying antidepressants like Zoloft and hot flashes in 2002, around the same time that the Women’s Health Initiative released conclusions concerning the long-term health risks associated with hormone replacement therapy. Research concerning Paxil and hot flashes prior to 2002 focused on breast cancer survivors who are unable to use estrogen replacement therapy.

Scientists and researchers are unable to explain why these drugs may be effective, or even why they would be considered for use. It is likely that they were prescribed to women who were suffering from depression, which sometimes accompanies menopause. These women may have reported a reduction in hot flashes, leading doctors to suggest that they might be useful for controlling hot flashes.

Both Zoloft and Paxil belong to a group of drugs known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor or SSRI. These drugs are approved by the FDA to treat depression and some are approved for the treatment of premenstrual dysphoric disorder. They are not approved by the FDA to treat hot flashes, other symptoms related to menopause, nor are they approved to treat PMS, but doctors often prescribe them for these purposes.

Even though they are not approved by the FDA to relieve hot flashes, both the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the North American Menopause Society recommend that women with moderate to severe, menopause related hot flashes should consider an SSRI, if they cannot or choose not to take hormone replacement therapy. Interestingly, a brochure released by the ACOG mentions that herbs and botanicals are not approved by the FDA, but they never mention that SSRI drugs are not approved by the FDA to treat menopausal symptoms.

One study concerning Paxil and hot flashes experienced by breast cancer survivors is similar to a more recent study concerning the use of black cohosh. (Black cohosh is an herb used traditionally by Native American healers and passed down from generation to generation for the relief of hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms.) As previously mentioned, women who have had breast cancer are unable to take estrogen replacement therapy, in fact they must take a drug that limits the effects of estrogen for several years following surgery. Even in women who are not near menopause, this drug causes severe hot flashes.

In the study of Paxil and hot flashes, the antidepressant was shown to reduce hot flash frequency by as much as 79%. Black cohosh was shown to reduce hot flash frequency by as much as 100%. Of the 90 women who participated in the black cohosh study, none reported adverse side effects and no one dropped out. Of the 30 women who participated in the study of Paxil and hot flashes, three (10%) dropped out because of drowsiness and one dropped out because of anxiety, a possible adverse reaction to Paxil.

Recently research was conducted by the College of Medicine at the University of Arizona concerning Zoloft and hot flashes. A group of women aged 40-65, currently suffering from hot flashes, but not taking hormone replacement therapy, were recruited. The researchers used a number called the “hot flash score”, which is equal to the number of hot flashes a woman experiences multiplied by the numerical expression of their severity, to evaluate the effectiveness of the SSRI over a four week period. A similar study concerning black cohosh and hot flashes was conducted by the Mayo Clinic.

In the study of Zoloft and hot flashes, the average number of hot flashes the women experienced per week was 45. In the black cohosh trial, the average was 8 per day or 56 per week. Zoloft reduced the frequency of hot flashes by 5 per week or 11%. Black cohosh reduced the frequency by 28 per week or 50% and reduced the average “hot flash score” by 56%.

In the study of Zoloft and hot flashes there was no significant reduction in severity, but in their concluding statement the researchers say that “sertraline (the generic name for Zoloft) reduced the number of hot flashes and improved the hot flash score relative to placebo and may be an acceptable alternative treatment for women experiencing hot flashes”. So, these researchers believe that an 11% reduction in the hot flash score represents an effective alternative treatment. Numerous studies have shown that treatment with placebo can reduce hot flashes by 20-40%.

In the Zoloft and hot flashes study, 15 women dropped out, six because of adverse reactions to the drug, 9 without giving reason. None of the women dropped out of the black cohosh trial. No adverse events or unwanted side effects of any kind were reported. Women did note that their sleep improved, they were less tired and had less abnormal sweating.

The unwanted side effects related to the use of Zoloft include sleep disorders, weakness, dizziness, tremors, confusion, nausea, vomiting, decreased sex drive and inability to achieve orgasm. It can induce mood swings. At least one study has shown that it increased the risk of suicide in seniors, as it does in teens and pre-teens. In fact, the FDA has released a public health warning which states that “anyone currently using Zoloft for any reason has a greater chance of exhibiting suicidal thoughts or behaviors, regardless of age.”

Worldwide, 20% of all patients in clinical trials relating to Paxil dropped out due to unwanted side effects. The side effects are similar to those of Zoloft. Both drugs can cause increased sweating, which makes it even harder to understand why researchers would conduct studies concerning Zoloft and hot flashes, Paxil and hot flashes or any other drug that can cause increased sweating, since increased sweating is what frustrates women most about hot flashes and night sweats.

Over the years, hundreds and hundreds of studies have been conducted concerning the safety of black cohosh. No one knows how long native healers have used the herb. The only known side effect is stomach ache and this is an infrequent complaint. Recent scientific evaluations have shown that it does not increase the risk of breast or endometrial cancer. So, it is unclear why medical practitioners and societies would recommend something with as many side effects as Zoloft and Paxil, when there is a safer and more effective treatment.

If you would like to read more published research concerning Zoloft and hot flashes or Paxil and hot flashes, you can visit PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of health. Just type the phrases into the search box.
