This article… made me “ugh” on so many levels. Doing pole dance for fitness is cool and all, and if you prefer the athletic side of it I really don’t care (stripper style ain’t for everyone). But to deny it’s anything to do with dance or strip clubs makes me want to smack people in the face with a brick. Pole dance is an art that can incorporate and reflect many different styles. It doesn’t have to be sexy if that’s not for you, but it can be sexy, and there is nothing wrong with that.
Fuck you and your superior “holier than thou” attitude; I can do all the same shit you can in my heels, and I can do it with pointed toes.
