Extremely catchy song by the synth pop group Men Without Hats. It's about nonconformism and doing your own thing.
The Safety Dance Lyrics--

We can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
'Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
Well they're no friends of mine
I say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind
And we can dance

A hit song in 80s and the favourite dance of That Guy. It wasn’t as safe as they said it was.
“Safety Dance time – dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dundun!”

The act of masturbating.

Originally coined in a EuroPop song in the 1980's by Men Without Hats. The song includes such phrases as:

"We can dance if we want to, we can leave your friends behind"

"We can go where we want to, a place they will never find"

"Everybody look at your hands"

"As long as we abuse it, never gonna lose it
Everything'll work out right"

In a overly-hyped, but dawning era of AIDS in the 1980's, masterbation and abstinence were considered essential safety behaviors - masterbation being the Safety Dance.

A similar song was Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself".

"Where's Steve?", Dana asked.

"Oh, he's probably in the bathroom doing the Safety Dance", replied Dan.

SSS-AAA-FFF-EEE-TTT-YYY SAFETY DANCE!

When two lumberjacks have anal sex with a condom, while wearing football pads, and with parental supervision.

When two people fist each other at the same time. It is named after the twisting two-arm dance motion from the Men Without Hats video of the same name.
Jennifer and Michael take "give and take" to amazing levels. They do the safety dance every Wednesday and Sunday now.
