Girl Talk: My First Pole Dancing Class

I am not sexy.

That could be the takeaway if you’d been a fly on the pole — er, the wall — at my first pole dancing class this weekend. There are a great many talents I have in this world. But strutting sexy and swirling around a pole are not some of those gifts. Keep reading »

Pole Dancing And Other Sports That Lobbied To Be Part Of The 2012 Olympics

If you have been scratching your head trying to figure out the finer points of curling, perhaps you’d be more interested in watching Olympic pole dancers compete for the gold? This is not a joke … competitive pole dancers are lobbying for a spot in the 2012 Olympics.

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 that men had their own division at the competition, and women came from around the world to compete in their division. While exotic dancing in gentlemen’s clubs involves nudity and sometimes raunch, “The only ‘x’ in the sport is exercise,” asserts the narrator in this video of contenders. So, what’s the difference between male pole dancers and female dancers? No stripper shoes. Keep reading »

Yowch! Pole-Dancing Dive Bombs

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 snafus have become a whole genre on YouTube? After the jump, the best of the best, from someone with way too much time on their hands.
