Also a critical element of the Time Warp
, the pelvic thrust is glee
fully performed by audience members
at a screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show
. By this point in the dance
, a participant's hands should be on their hips
and their knees should be drawn together. The pelvis
is then pushed forward and back repeatedly and vigorous
ly before being churned in a circle during the word insaaaaaaane
. This is made much easier by watching the Transylvanian
s on the screen or the people dancing in the aisle
s around you.
I went to RHPS a number of times back in my college days, typically with the same group of friends. One of my friends was fond of saying "Group sex! Group sex!" with each thrust, but I haven't heard of this as a common element of RHPS audience participation...in my opinion, just doing the Time Warp was enough.
