The mixed ice-skating is not a process you would normally associate with romping, but for Canadian couple Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir who are strong favourites for the gold, there is a certain last-minute added move within their routine which has won them a lot of prizes, but also a lot of negative commentary lately.
Most onlookers say is just too X-rated to perform at the Olympics.
Those who have seen it describe it as ‘lush, ripe and sensual’.

It is not really X-rated or anything but there is indeed a certain point within the routine where Miss Virtue wraps her long limbs around Moir’s neck and leans backwards, so hot-hot-hot that the Canadian Press, when they first saw it end of last year, were asking whether they would indeed show the pictures of the pose in question.
For those wondering, you can see it in the video as from 2.25.
“I think edgy would probably summarize most of the program quite well and that’s what we were going for,” explained Miss Virtue, the gorgeous 28-year-old from London, Ontario, gold-anointed with Moir at the Vancouver Olympics.
“We knew that taking the ice at an Olympic Games again meant that we needed to have a different style.”
“We wanted to make a bit of a different statement. If that was bringing an edge or sexuality or darkness, or a contemporary feel to it, then mission accomplished I guess.”
Miss Virtue and Mr. More are not sure yet whether they will perform the routine in full at the Olympics given the controversy, but they are sure to finish high in the table.
