Des Plaines High School Bans ‘Grinding’ At School Dances

DES PLAINES, Ill. (CBS) — A high school in Des Plaines is the latest to crack down on sexually suggestive dancing, or “grinding.”

As WBBM Newsradio’s Regine Schlesinger reports, some other suburban districts already have a ban on the books on grinding, where dance partners simulate sex acts at school dances.

Now, Maine West High School is the first to act in Maine Township High School District 207.

“It’s been around for a few years, but a few years ago, it was more isolated; it would be couples here and there that would be doing it, and it was, at that point, easy enough for a teacher or administrator to walk up and say, ‘Hey, just knock it off,’” said district spokesman Dave Beery.

Beery says Maine West is adopting a policy of two strikes and you’re out. Students will be given wristbands when they enter Maine West dances, and anyone who engages in inappropriate moves will lose his or her wristband.

If students persist in their suggestive dancing, they will be ejected from the dance.

There is no immediate plan to implement the ban on “grinding” at the district’s two other schools – Maine East and Maine South in Park Ridge.

    Too silly, too silly.

    The school has stepped way over the line with this rule. A major violation of freedom of expression. Besides, there is nothing sexier than a teenage girl, bumping and grinding! Yummy!!!!

  • Spookiest spook

    Teenagers need to grind. How else are they supposed to know what to do later? I say grind away, especially if the girl is hot with a big azz.

    • Jim

      Big ass? What’s the matter with you?

  • franz

    Hey thinking about throwing a party at a hotel nearby-any girls that want to grind away are welcome to come-literally!

    Seniors 17 and above only please

  • Mark

    These are mostly illegal mexican’s kids who are a drain on our country.

    • Peace-N-Love

      Mark, don’t hate on Mexicans just because you caught your wife “grinding” to two of them, in the nude, and in your bed!! Siii Senorrrr!

      • Enrico Martinez Gonzalez Sanchito

        Hating on Mexicans comes very naturally these days. Look at how the illegal bean eaters have dragged down our economy and destroyed the entry level job market. Many of us are sick of this plague on our society!

      • Mark

        I’ve had more mexican women than you I’ll bet.

      Actually it’s probably mostly legal immigrant kids. Get over the fact that DP is no longer lily white. Also- “grinding” has been around a LONG time and talks about banning it in schools were heard way back when I was in high school (over a decade ago). Sure kids will push the line but to force a rule I’d say is a bit much. Administrators should just continue to tell folks to cool it off a bit.

    I’m going to eject my sperm into your anus

    • Enrico Martinez Gonzalez Sanchito

      Sick puppy bean eater!!!!

    Jesus Castro – good answer. If you want to know the term for what you propose, just Google Santorum. Explains these people to a T.
