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.(via missfreudianslit)
so agree - there are so many ways to get fit - if it is a pole dancing class, it’s a use of strippers’ labour
Yesterday I attended the following panels:

I will write some overs actions and reflections at my official website once I get back home.
Adult only content
Yeah, it’s a porn site.
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.
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.
