Meaning of 'hoochie coochie'

The Hoochie coochie was a sexually provocative dance that became wildly popular during and after the Chicago World's Fairmarker in 1893.[435720].

Since the dance was performed by women, a ‘hoochie coochie man’ either watched them or ran the show. Alternatively, from the directly sexual meaning of hoochie coochie, he was successful with women.
