I discovered the joys of local TV watching in PR. There is a show called "No te duermas" which is basically a hybrid dance party/chat show/soft porn spectacular. Reguetoneros and musicians of various local musical forms play while practically nude women gyrate in g-strings. The Puerto Rican neutrals are of course very much in evidence, as are massive coolans with lots of cellulite, extremely lengthy acrylic nails, bootleg weaves and unnatural hair dyes, and heels of stratospheric heights. Bizarrely, a Christian Merenguero called Tu Amigo Miguelito chose this venue for an interview. Apparently, this is a very popular genre as is salsa cristiana.
