Pole dancing for fitness & feminism

OK, so national politics won't get you off your asses and commenting, how about a thread devoted to sexy dancing?

Nice!  They had the studio, they had the pole, why NOT get more people into it?

Shoot, some people study belly dancing, some Yoga.  There once was classes for strippers, but I'm sure some people were shy enough to want to keep their clothes on.

You never hear about grown men needing classes to develop their self-esteem.

WTF is wrong with women?

I think we're satisfied with just going out in the woods and acting like animals.

Urrr.  Meat good
Urrr.  Power tools good
Urrr.  Chevy small-block V8 good

Oh, come on.  You've heard about Paint-Ball, Extreme Sports, Martial Arts, going to the gym.

OK, the sad truth is, most men over 40 have simply given up.  Or they're married, so they're more concerned about how their wife thinks they look than anybody else.

Besides, guys have their jobs to give them validation.  Ladies have THEIR jobs to give them validation, but our culture (American, that is) still places more value on Ladies appearance and sexyness than men's.
