If It Works For Strippers. . .


Long considered a feminine activity, pole-dancing in China was  a No-No associated with sex ans strip clubs.  However, as men have noticed how the activity has enhanced the bodies of the female practitioners, gradually Chinese men have shed their hangups and given it a try themselves.
 

Having discovered that this is actually great exercise and a great way to build strength and tone the abs, Chinese men are signing up for classes at gyms for as much as $1200 per month.  

One can't help but wonder if payment is made in one-dollar bills stuffed in the instructors pants!

Many thanks to the Huffington Post for the info and video.

This is disturbing.

$1200 a month??
It would be cheaper to erect a pole in their own living room and practise there. It does seem like a good way to build muscle strength though, the women have amazing bodies.

It requires great muscle strength to do this well.

I'm resisting making some very bad jokes here. :)

Good point! My neighbor has a pole in her garage for this sort of thing. Her instructor came over once during a party at my neighbor's house where bathing suits were involved. The instructor got on the pole in her bathing suit, her wet bathing suit, and fell on her head. Ouch.

No time to read (although this post looks intriguing-I'll be back). I just awarded you a "Liebster Award." I know you don't do these things (and don't expect you to do likewise to anyone else), but I think you're the coolest, so I went ahead and "dood" it.

Haha GREAT post. I have to admit- that MUST take a lot of strength. I dunno if it's worth $1200 but it does look fun! You newest follower from the "boost my blog Friday" hop. Hope you can stop by sometime- http://yesyolanda.blogspot.com/.

Just goes to show exercise can be fun. Though I doubt I have the upper body strength to do this. lol

Jackie: I KNOW I don't! lol

Hmmm, I wouldn't mind sitting across the street and watching that class!

Kristy said...

Wow, that was about the most un-sexy thing I've ever seen!

gayle said...

Looks very hard!

Eva Gallant said...

SheWrites: I agree--why not?

Clipped: Yes, some of them are, and it takes lots of strength!

Bettyl: There you go...a new hobby!
