More Poledancing

14 05 2010

Sometimes you just want to relax and watch a beautiful woman dance. Pole dancing combines sensual-eroticism and sheer athleticism. These women are in fantastic shape and display a great deal of skill in their displays (for the most part).  I found an advertisement for this years pole-dancing competition in NYC (already past sadly). Still we have this video. Enjoy!


New Sport for the Olympics?

26 02 2010


Well I wouldn’t get my hopes up too much but there appears to be a move on to get pole dancing into the Olympics. I think it is about time.

Personally, there isn’t a much better way to spend a Friday night for me than to spend it watching a graceful woman spin around the pole, climbing up and down it with a sense of grace. I might actually tune into the show to watch it if they were to add this.

In one story:

The Winter Olympics may be getting dismal local ratings, but if the pleas of poll dancers across the world to have their “sport” recognized by the Olympics are heeded, we’ve got a feeling ratings would shoot through the roof.
“After a great deal of feedback from the pole dance community, many of us have decided that it’s about time pole fitness is recognized as a competitive sport, and what better way for recognition than to be part of the 2012 Olympics held in London,” British pole dancer KT Coates writes in an email to the Associated Press.

And in another:

For Japan’s Mai Sato, watching all those gold medals being handed out in Vancouver is a bittersweet experience.

Sato knows the demands of being the best. In her world, blisters are the rule, bruises a way of life. And the training — five hours a day, five days a week.

The world champion in her sport, Sato is as athletic, dedicated and competitive as the Olympians representing their nations. And she thinks it’s high time her discipline, too, got some real recognition.

Let us all cheer for this sport, eh?

Can we get this as an Olympic event?


Pole Dancing in China as Exercise

26 07 2008

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.
