While shuffling around the internet I found a cute little relationship blog that I felt the need to comment on. The title of the post was “Can I convince my parents pole dancing is good exercise?”.
I couldn’t resist leaving a comment (which you may do so below as well), but rather than bore you w/ the simplistic comment that I made, I thought that I’d just elaborate a little.
First off; the United States is a couple of years behind Europe and the rest of the world that embraces pole dancing. You figure on t.v. commercials over there, they show nipple. Red light districts and strippers are everywhere. And weed too.
But we’re a little more up-tight in America and won’t put up w/ that.
Unfortunately though, pole dancing, which is derived from the stripper world, has the black market effect on society when it should be considered more of a black tie event on society.
There is a tremendous amount of upper body strength needed to pull off some of the moves you see these acrobatic artists do on the pole.
Will your parents buy it for the art of pole dance???
Currently, I don’t think so. There are too many PSA’s (public service announcements) and after-school specials, that somehow pole dancing gets mixed up w/ all that and receives negative attention.
When the news at night goes into uproar about Miley Cyrus gripping a stripper pole on stage at her latest concert and Lindsay Lohan using a stripper pole to hold herself up after a hard night of drinking… No wonder the media propaganda bulls**t that is delivered to the masses will have negative appeal attached to it.
What else do you see on the news??? Who was shot, who got be-headed today, why we should blow up that other country–etc.. etc…
Do you think that you’d ever hear anything good about pole dancing??
Then along came the Olympics. Finally a more positive approach towards the art of pole dance….errrrrr……nope. The F’in media turned that one around on us too.
We blogged about pole dancing to the Olympics and everyone else did as well… Then the media started doing the stories–and for the record, pole dancing in the Olympics might turn out to be like Skateboarding in the Olympics. Yah, remember that?
Only time can tell though. I would assume that another couple of years and all the adult cry-babies out there thinking their little babies are going to grow up to be strippers–I have news for them:
Watch Oprah. She’s done 8 episodes on pole dancing for fitness.
And for all the studios out there: If you want to show the empowerment of women and the positive influence that pole dancing brings to the mental and physical world–maybe you should stop w/ the “Lap Dance” classes, as they don’t have anything to do with the art of pole dance.
Remember folks, the kiddies are watching.
