While I have heard of using erotic dancing similar to what one finds in a strip club as a form of aerobic exercise, it seems that the Chinese have improved on the concept. They have stepped up to pole dancing. Personally, I think that if it is done properly, pole dancing is one of the most erotic, sensual and beautiful things I have ever seen. Some of those girls have done some amazing things. I will link a picture and a location to buy your own pole after the break.
Clad in knee-high leather boots, spandex shorts and a sports bra, Xiao Yan struck a pose two feet off the ground, her head glistening with sweat and her arms straining as she suspended herself from a vertical pole.
“Keeping your grip is the hardest part,” she said. “It’s really easy to slide downward.”
A nightclub activity mostly considered the domain of strippers in the United States, pole dancing — but with clothes kept on — is nudging its way into the mainstream Chinese exercise market, with increasing numbers of gyms and dance schools offering classes.
If you would like your own pole, I plan on getting mine from here. Only about $200.
Oh, as a bonus, enjoy this pole dancing video.
A quick search shows some pole-dancing as exercise in the US as well.
