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!
