I think this is real? And not a joke, like the Hungarian version of The Onion or something? According to a Hungarian website, a porn star-turned-exotic dancer named Alma Pirner (aka Ginger Jones) got together with a bunch of other strippers and set a world record for pole dancing by working the brass pole for eight hours straight. Now that’s some inner-thigh strength! Pirner told reporters she was trying to prove a point about workplace equality, not just show off her pole riding skills: “When asked why this did this, Pirner said that it was to prove that women are just as physically and mentally capable as men, and deserve to be treated equally in the workplace.” I am not sure how that works in the real world, but I will respect the words of anyone who can hang on to a pole by their ankles for that long.

We thought it a bit strange Perrier would hire burlesque star Dita Von Teese as a sexy spokeswoman, but now we get it. Anyone else would make a brisk rinse-off in Perrier just look silly! (This video is pretty tame, but probably NSFW.) [PerrierByDita.com] Keep reading »
This is one of those stories that you hope is just something from an episode of “30 Rock,” but then you’re, like, Ugh, these people really exist:
Sarah Burge, 50, owns a swingers’ sex party club and is known as the “Human Barbie” for her $600,000-worth of plastic surgery treatments. She’s also the mother of three daughters. Her eldest, Charlotte, 23, dances burlesque; her middle daughter, Hannah, 16, started getting Botox injections last year; and her 7-year-old, Poppy, wears lip gloss, high heels and makeup, and loves pole dancing.
Yep, she’s 7. Keep reading »
Looks like Karl Lagerfeld has a new favorite lady in Emily DiDonato. The two are working on a sassy little project for fancy swimwear line Eres in which Emily starts out dressed in full Chanel and ends up looking adorable in nothing more than an Eres swimsuit. Half naked models are nothing new, but her stripping process is: Every time you click the mouse, she loses a piece of clothing. If frat boys were into fashion, this would be an Alpha Phi (or whatever) wet dream. Emily doesn’t start stripping until May, but if the image above is any indicator, it’s worth the wait.

It’s no secret we’ve got a major crush on burlesque performer Dita Von Teese. What’s not to love? She’s got a bitchin’ wardrobe (and an assistant who takes care of her clothes!), an incredible job, and more confidence than we’ve seen in, well … anyone!
Dita was kind enough to talk to us recently about her latest book, Dita: Stripteese, where to get the best vintage, how many pairs of Louboutins she owns, and how often she checks her lipstick … Keep reading »
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 »
Amy Fisher shot (sorry, bad pun) to fame at the age of 17 when she tried to kill Mary Jo Buttafuoco, the wife of her lover, Joey Buttafuoco. After serving a bunch of time in prison the “Long Island Lolita” did what any other self-respecting woman would do. No, she didn’t try to turn her life around. Instead, this lovely gal went into the porno business. Now, she’s using the disaster in Haiti to get back in the limelight once again. Rather than just shell out some dough to support a good cause, Amy is going to show us her dough. The mother of three is stripping at a lounge on Long Island this coming Thursday, Friday and Saturday and will donate a portion—not all—of the money she makes to Haiti relief funds. She’s a class act, no? [NY Post]

Oh Martha. Martha, Martha, Martha. We didn’t know you had it in you. The prim and proper talk show hostess with the mostess invited S Factor striptease instructor, Sheila Kelley, on her show yesterday and had the nerve to take to the
poll pole [Sorry folks. Early morning. Sigh. -- Editor] herself. There’s video after the jump, but I just adore the joyful look on Martha’s face in this photo. Keep reading »
“I hired trip ropers for roping lessons for my cowgirl show. I hired a bull rider to teach me how to ride my mechanical-bull lipstick. And yeah, I smoked opium the traditional way to ‘get a feel’ for my Opium Den show. Research!”
