They were all men and didn’t care they were in a busy street in Soshanguve township, north of Pretoria. This is a new sex dance craze known by its practitioners as “Cava”.
It all started with a dance-off, but quickly turned into a stripping and humping fest. The infamous and provocative display bystanders capture on their phone cameras shows naked men groping each other in sexual positions. The spectacle has set tongues wagging in the township.
The latest show took place last Friday afternoon in Block G, according to locals. Photos and video footage show half-naked men dancing and groping each other while their private parts are exposed.
They can be seen simulating sex positions, including the most notorious one showing three men simulating a threesome.
Witnesses told Sowetan that Cava was a common spectacle in GaRankuwa. They said some of the Cava sessions included girls who spiced up the sex performances with their own styles.
“These things happen at night over the weekends. I was surprised this one was happening during the day. Those guys were drunk,” said resident Sipho Mngomezulu.
“These people drink and express their immorality,” said Zulu. There are usually cars and taxis parked around and playing music when this is happening. Some of the people end up having sex in the cars or going to nearby bushes and dark alleys.”
An unoccupied building in Block G is said to be the venue for these weekly gatherings of booze and sex.
Naledi Selesho, who runs a business stall near one of the venues for Cava gatherings, said she often found used condoms, beer bottles and cigarette butts thrown around the area.
Lydia Moholo, whose family home is not far from the area, said their attempts to end the gatherings had proved unsuccessful.
“There is no direct offence towards us. But we don’t want these immoral things happening close to our houses and children,” said Moholo.
She did not say how they had tried to stop the sex shows.
Despite the outcry of the residents over the sex parties, the police spokesman in neighbouring Soshanguve said police did not anything about Cava.
Warrant Officer Lolo Mangena said he was not aware of any one complaint by resident about the public sexual acts.
