A Sexy Way to Lose the Pounds
I really like that you dealt with stripping in a very sensitive and non-judgemental way. That's missing from a lot of these texts. Good for you for finding a way to explain the history of pole / exotic dancing from a point of view that doesn't look down on anyone :)
excellent and informative article.
I'm happy that you guys enjoyed the article. It's always fun to research new topics and this one for me was most interesting! I'll tell you something though, in the midst of my research, my parents were having a dinner party where an argument ensued between my parents and their guests about pole dancing, this of course after my parents shared with everyone the topic of my article, also telling them that I had gone to a pole dancing lesson. Their reaction was typical ignorance, I'm afraid, and this from a very educated bunch. My dad phoned me up to ask me whether he could give a copy of my article to one of his colleagues whom he wanted to prove wrong. The problem is that so many people are judgmental and they really have no clue. So in writing this article I'm happy that I did good by you, but I'm also hoping that other people who have had reservations, or who've judged pole dancing wrongfully, will perhaps see this dance form in a completely different light. They may continue to dislike it after the fact, it might not be their cup-of-tea, but at least they would have had a good thorough understanding of it! When you appreciate the evolution or journey of dance, then you appreciate any dance form really. Just as a side note, this weekend my husband and I went hiking up Lone Mountain, near our home; it was 6:30 a.m. a perfect time for a quick thirty minutes up the mountain and thirty minutes down. Well, once I had reached the peak of the mountain I stood there and stared at the beautiful view, fully mesmerized even though I do this type of activity on a weekly basis; how could it be otherwise when one's surrounded by mountains and the valley, including the strip (people have no idea how beautiful Las Vegas really is). Feeling very hot after the climb, and a little cheeky, I took my exercise top off to feel the nice breeze. My husband then snapped a shot of me with his phone, and all I did was turn my head back and hold my top to the side, it was actually a cute pose and a nice photo. But he then put it on Facebook, and do you really think that anyone said anything? Of course not, the idea that I had stood there without a top on, even though nobody could see anything but my bare back, was shocking to people or in poor taste. But my dad, fully appreciating the photo, then shared it on his Facebook and wrote the caption "The Las Vegas Strip," again, no one appreciated that either. What can I say, I will stick to being who I am, and and you guys continue enjoying what you do and that's the best way to live one's life for sure!
Very informative article!! And congrats on entering your journey to the pole world. I have witnessed so many body changes, in myself and others, just from pole danicing (pole fitness, whatever anyone wants to call it, its pole-related). The transformations are incredible...
Thank you so much for shedding more light to the world on such an uncoventional workout means as pole dance.
I thought it was great to see thoughts and even research, from someone who has just been introduced to pole dance! So often we only see something like this from those who have been involved with pole for some time.
Wrinkletalk, Thank you for the interview and I enjoyed our first lesson together.
