Difference Between Juking and Grinding

Juking vs Grinding

Grinding and juking are two forms of dirty dancing or freak dancing. Freak dancing is a general term for dancing with sexually suggestive movements by rubbing the groin area of a dance partner usually using the buttocks or the pelvis. Sometimes the rubbing transcends into thrust-like movements. Freak dancing is also characterized by dancers dancing too intimately with each other.

Both types of dancing are popular in many social settings and dance events like night clubs and parties. Most dancers of this type of dancing are teenagers and young adults. This type of dancing has been banned in some formal events like school dances because of its provocative nature.

Body parts associated with grinding and juking are the hips, pelvis, buttocks, and crotch area of both partners. Depending on the position, one or both partners can do the grinding or juking.

Grinding and juking are usually performed by a couple, a man and a woman. However, man-to-man or woman-to-woman grinding and juking is not uncommon. It is also common to see strangers and friends do both dances.

Grinding had two forms: a man rubs the rear end of his partner using his pelvic area, or the partners face each other and grind their pelvises together. In the latter form, dancers move their respective pelvises in sync with the rhythm of the music.

Another form of grinding is the grinding chain where people form a line connected by their pelvises and buttocks and grind together. They move and dance in sync to the music and to other people’s movements.

On the other hand, juking is another type of dirty or freak dancing wherein the female is in front of the male. The female rubs her buttocks against the man’s genital area and moves her hips in a provocative manner. The male usually places his hands on the female’s waist, hips, or shoulders as the female moves. In juking, the female does most of the dancing and is in control while the male only follows and responds to her movements.

Both grinding and juking produces friction and may trigger responses like an erection or sexual excitement. Some people see it as “dry sex” or “dry humping” because of the sexual implications while both dancers are fully clothed. In some cases, both grinding and juking can lead to sexual intercourse due to the sexual arousal and excitement between its participants.


1. Both grinding and juking are forms of freak or dirty dancing. Both dances feature explicit and provocative movements that create friction (in the form of rubbing) and targeting the lower area of the dancers’ bodies.

2. Grinding is be performed by a face-to-face position. In this arrangement, both partners face each other and rub their pelvises together. On the other hand, juking involves the female in front of the male while rubbing her buttocks against the male’s genital area.

3. While grinding and juking, both partners try to move in sync with the music.

4. Dancers who perform grinding and juking are usually a male and a female. However, male-to-male as well as female-to-female grinding and juking are also acceptable.

5. Another form of grinding is the grinding chain. In this form, many people grind together.

6. In juking, the female does all the movement while the male follows her lead. In contrast, grinding involves both partners exerting effort in the movement or the male doing the rubbing over the female.

7. Juking has only one form while grinding has two forms. Grinding also involves two positions: 1) front-facing each other or 2) back-to–front. Juking only employs the back-to-front position.
