The Enigmatic World of Pole Dancing

We all have our little secrets. Don’t we? So does Pole Dancing. It’s time to reveal the five best hidden Pole Dancing secrets.

1. Pole Dancing is a Sport

If pole dancers had a dime for every time they heard “Yeah, ok you pole for the exercise just as much as I go to strip shows for the peanuts” we would all be on Forbes’s most successful list.  Our advice is – Don’t knock it until you try  pole sports.

2. Pole Hurts

Despite the grace and ease at which it seems that pole dancers spin and move on, above, next, sideways and so on and so forth to the pole, the pole still remains a hard, unmovable metal object which you must grab, tighten, and hold onto for dear life.

3. Pole is Difficult

Like a mathematical equation where every part must be in equilibrium such as one pole dancing routine. The easiest part is remembering the routine but the devil is in the details: Point your toes, extend your legs, arch your back, and watch your expression are simply some of the permanent commands which must be embedded into your brain during every move you make, every step you take.

4. Pole has no Gender

Once upon a time the earth was flat, Pluto was a planet and pink was for boys and blue was for girls.  The times are changing and so is the Pole Dancing community.  Men can, are, and will pole simply because they want to.

5. Pole Outfits are not For Show (for the most part) they are Functional

Everyone is aware of the fact that a pole dancing uniform is devoid of material, this is not a secret.  The Pole Dancing outfit’s purpose is not to show skin or be skimpy – its purpose is to be functional.  The more the skin has full contact with the pole the less likely you will be a pole casualty and live to pole another day.
