We are going to see if we can share some gym space with one of these places.





You know, to cut costs.

wow. That is just wrong.

It says that it is marketed for adults, but. . . it doesn't look like it to me.

I second the entire wrongness thing!

Although, I can imagine this line:

"So.... You're a stripper! You should come over sometime. No really, I've got the pole and everything;)"

:D Performing in heels is an art in itself I hear!

When I saw the topic I thought that it would be refering to pole acrobatic work which I would really like to try.
Any one with access to good recomendation of pole work links,set up or silk rope work for that matter.
Anyone investigated using this in WOs?
Cheers

I think the coolest thing about the GoGo boots is you would be like...shot at least 5'4"...

There was a dancer at a women's self-defense class I went to, who showed up in her little skirt and itty bitty heels. The flier said to wear something loose and comfortable, but she said if she couldn't fight back in her work clothes, there was no point in taking the class! She actually did okay.

Amazing. First, a short history on prostituition in Vegas. Until, oh, about the mid '70s it was acceptable for ladies to proposition men anywhere they found them. On the street, with families present, whatever the situation. Those that make such decisions found this unacceptable and legislated them into bars, which soon became the source of modern "pole dancing". So, since it has become so popular I guess you could give Vegas credit for taking something that was once considered a vice (aka gambling), once again, and elevating it to acceptable social standards? If you had lived here +30 years and worked in gaming for 20 of them, as I have, you might have a different take on all this crap. Yeah its funny and all but damn, I'm sure glad my daughter (22 now and gorgeous) takes a dim view of this sort of thing.
