"If for some reason, the idea of your dancing being connected to the strip club scene is upsetting to you, if you desperately need to distance what you do from what those ‘other girls’ do, if you truly believe that you are doing this because it’s just a really good workout, then I strongly suggest you spend some time thinking about why you chose pole dancing. Because there are a million ways to get fit without putting on six inch stilettos, a bikini and swinging sensually around a pole."

 Quote from The Pole Story.

what I think is funny is that the specific girl got me all het up is arguing that actually pole dance originated as Mallakhamb or Chinese acrobatics, a stance apparently being promoted by non-stripper pole dancers trying to get social acceptance by affiliating with a grand tradition of like, western appropriation.

but like, the resurgence of pole work in pop culture and it’s subsequent popularity has little to do with men doing acrobatics on large wooden poles or rubber coated poles; it has EVERYTHING to do with western culture’s obsession with female bodies and commodified sexuality and more specifically and recently, strippers.  

The tricks she’s doing so badly in her pictures?  Those are stripper moves.  Strippers created performing on a brass pole, strippers popularised it, strippers TEACH IT. 

and strippers get thrown under the bus now it’s been picked up, washed off, and made cool for middle class women looking for empowerment.

so agree - there are so many ways to get fit - if it is a pole dancing class, it’s a use of strippers’ labour

I will always love this song - Candy’s Room. Captures (I think) what it is like to be a sweet boy falling for a sex worker. Cannot put a price on it. But a gal has to pay the bills.

PS I hope when I am in my 60s I rock (in my own way) just as hard.

In Candy’s room there are pictures of her heroes on the wall
but to get to Candy’s room you gotta walk the darkness of Candy’s hall
Strangers from the city call my baby’s number and they bring her toys
When I come knocking she smiles pretty she knows I wanna be Candy’s boy
There’s a sadness hidden in that pretty face
A sadness all her own from which no man can keep Candy safe

We kiss, my heart’s rushes to my brain
The blood rushes in my veins fire rushes towards the sky
We go driving driving deep into the night
I go driving deep into the light in Candy’s eyes

She says baby if you wanna be wild
you got a lot to learn, close your eyes
Let them melt, let them fire, let them burn
Cause in the darkness there’ll be hidden worlds that shine
When I hold Candy close she makes these hidden worlds mine

She has fancy clothes and diamond rings
She has men who give her anything she wants but they don’t see
That what she wants is me,
oh and I want her so
I’ll never let her go, no no no
She knows that I’d give
all that I got to give
All that I want all that I live
to make Candy mine
Tonight

Mon Jan 6 To Do List

Life Stuff

Take out the garbage.

Do my core body workout.

Clear the table of receipts, papers and desk stuff. There is not usually much because I try to keep that space uncluttered, but I cleared out a drawer so there stuff I need to file or recycle. Passing by the table these past couple of days has me wanting to get back that blank slate table state!

Call my mother. 

Work on a personal genealogy mini project I have going. Ask my mother a few questions about birth dates.

Seska Stuff

Write a week of Sexbit items for my blog and my Facebook page.

Figure out my editorial calendar for the next 6 weeks - articles, essays and advice posts.

Work on my porn curation posts. I let my arousal instinct guide the way. What imagery turns me on these days. Brightness and clarity has been on my mind in a big way for many months but I feel something little more lush and sensual brewing inside of me. Time to go through my files and see what creates a spark of sex in me.
