Work That Pole, Dude

And you thought all strippers were women. Think again! The dudes are no shrinking violets when it comes to climbing up ye olde stripper pole. At the World Pole Dancing Competition in Tokyo, men and women mounted the brass rail to show off their best barely clad aerial acrobatics. This was the first year…

Yowch! Pole-Dancing Dive Bombs

You know what’s even funnier than models falling? Pole-dancing face-plants. Sure, it’s mean and I truly hope this girl didn’t hurt herself, but I definitely chuckled when I saw this video on CNN this morning. With everyone from Miley Cyrus to Susan Sarandon and her daughter twirling around a pole, apparently pole snafu…

Quick Pic: Puttin’ The Pedal To The Metal

It’s pretty hard to shock New Yorkers, but it’s even harder to go all acrobatic on a float being paraded around town. Look at this lady go on The PoleRider, a rickshaw and mobile strip club! The brainchild of entrepreneur Andrew Katzander is cruising the city and so fly. Hope they don’t hit a pothole.

Even A Strip Club Manager Thinks Miley’s Pole Dance Was Uncomfortable

Okay, publicist for SCORES a “gentleman’s club” in New York City. You won. I took your opportunistic press release bait. I called up Ed Norwick, the general manager of SCORES, to ask him what he, as a sort of stripping aficionado, thought of Miley Cyrus’ pole dance number at the Teen Choice Awards. Our chat,…

RIP, Poledancing. Cause Of Death? Miley Cyrus At The Teen Choice Awards

Ladies and gentlemen, we gather here today to remember our dear friend pole dancing.

Fitness For The Coquette In You

Pole dance, chair dance, and striptease are fun ways to workout, but let’s be real, you aren’t going to use these moves to entice your guy no matter what Flirty Girl Fitness promises. I can just see my BF bursting into hysterics as I try to do the Cat Crawl Push-up or Goddess Rising a…

Sci-fi guy fantasy has hit a whole new woody-popping high with robotic pole dancers.

Frisky Workouts: My New Found Respect For Strippers

I used to think strippers had it easy. They show up for work in the evening, shake their asses for a few hours, make their rent and grocery money in one shift, leave the club for the night, sleep through the morning, go shopping before work and then start the whole cycle all over again.

I Was A Celibate Stripper

“So let me get this straight? You’ve been a stripper for the past eight years and you’ve never slept with anyone during that entire time?” Blair, my co-worker at the strip club, asked.

“I know, it sounds really weird,” I said. “I just haven’t. Maybe its guilt from my Italian Catholic upbringing.”

“Kiersten,…

Coming Soon: Wii Strip!

When we heard the Wii was coming with its own aerobics/fitness program, we were kind of excited because it combined something we love (the TV!) with something we hate (fitness!). We haven’t started our Wii Fit routine yet, but there’s already something potentially more enticing on the way. A company called Peekaboo, which makes stripper…
