“Dance like your vagina is on fire”

"Dance like your vagina’s on fire” is a saying that has been printed on many gift items, such as bumper stickers and T-shirts. “Dance like your vaginas on fire!” was cited on Twitter on December 6, 2009.

“"My vagina is on fire” was a line on the Comedy Central sitcom Strangers with Candy (1999). “Party like your vagina is on fire” was cited on Twitter on March 26, 2009.

“Dance like your ass/feet/pants are on fire” are older versions of the “dance like...” saying.


Wikiquote: Strangers with Candy
Strangers with Candy (1999-2000) was an American sitcom that aired thirty episodes (in three seasons of ten episodes each) on Comedy Central. The show was a parody of the afterschool special phenomena of the 1970s and 1980s. The series’ main character, Jerri Blank (played by Amy Sedaris), was a runaway returning to high school as a freshman at the age of 46.

Noblet: [reading aloud from a note confiscated from Jerri] “My vagina is on fire. I’m trying not to scratch it, Orlando, I’m afraid it will get infected. P.S. I just know I’m going to win homecoming queen. That will show those sons of bitches, especially Noblet, that homo-” Jerri, see me after class.

After quickly making up shirts that say ‘Dance Like Your Vagina Is On Fire’ prior to heading to Sasquatch both Sarah and I wore our shirts on Sunday. We spent the whole day making up funny and wild dances for everyone who asked us what our shirts mean. Here is a small taste of my dumbness.

Passing by colourful clusters of phallus-shaped bottle openers, we field the stall owners’ offers of custom-made sex stickers and t-shirts announcing “I’m not gay but $20 is $20” and exhorting people to “dance like your vagina is on fire.”
