So, went to the parade for a few hours early and loved it. Left about 3pm. Then received a FB video from the Consortium, with the following caption:

Granpa gets his "wuk" in behind a fine Crucian woman during 2017 Adults Parade activities in Frederiksted. More videos and pics coming up.'

Do not know how to post the video but it is akin to an anal rape. TRY TO LOOK AT IT OR TELL ME HOW I CAN SHARE IT PLEASE. The girl was clearly uncomfortable and the Consortium publishes this abuse as if it were not only normal but something to be applauded? Then they delete all negative comments about their post!! If the first image and the Consortium's celebration of this treatment went viral, trust me, tourism would be negatively affected, as would our island's reputation all over the globe. Truly truly disgusting. So very sorry that this news outlet believes women can be treated in such a fashion.

If this is the case, I'm thrilled you couldn;t post it. It's not something that I would want to see or even posted for others to see.

But this is not ok. The Consortium deleted all negative comments and left the video on their site. One cannot ignore such blatant abuse of anyone. Never been an activist but this is beyond horrible and I cannot shut up. Even my Trumpist husband was appalled.

"Wining" or "wukking up" during certain parades and events is common as janeinstx and speee1dy said and it is a surprise you haven't seen this style of dancing before on island. That is usually how they dance to Soca music.

Search Trinidad Carnival on YouTube.
What you saw on the St. Croix Carnival video is amateur compared to Trinidad videos.
Tourists flock to Trinidad for their carnival.

I don't think the woman was uncomfortable, I can't read her mind tho, but looks like it was just time for her to move along in the parade.

And for you to compare it to anal rape is just plain ignorant because you don't know that style of dance.

Whatever style it is, it's extremely vulgar and could be construed as unlawful sexual contact, if, undesired by the woman.

Carnival has become a spectacle of this type of disgusting behavior and children follow by example.

Oh Lawd...The generations after Elvis' gyrating hips & similar artists have been declining since then also.

I was a bit surprised by it when I first saw it years ago, but it's pretty common place at these types of events.
We're not in Kansas anymore !

i did find the video vulgar. i have seen some videos on facebook from other islands where kids are doing this style of "dance" . i dont agree with it. kids that should not even know what they are doing exactly

i dont consider that "dancing" at all.
