    It’s how you use the pole that counts. Men use poles to perform feats of athleticism designed to impress those with a sense of achievement. Women tend to use poles to titillate sleazy straight guys who are more interested in ass than achievement.

    Overall, it tells us that women – even the so-called liberated ones – are too obsessesd with pleasing men.

    Jason, are you seriously suggesting that gay men aren’t obsessed with pleasing men? Although I’ll grant you that many of the ones I’ve dated couldn’t have cared less about pleasing me.

    And you can’t mean that straight men have cornered the market on sleazy, can you? In this case, my dating history totally contradicts you.

    And women pole-dancers don’t perform feats of athleticism? Clearly, you’ve just been going to the wrong strip clubs.

    If not for its birth in strip clubs, pole dancing could easily be a new Olympic gymnastics event. It’s a joining of strength and acrobatic skills. How is it really different from the rings? Or think of it as a vertical balance beam. Cirque du Soleil has been using poles as a part of their performances for years.

    If they want to make it a real sport, they need to change the name of the event to, “vertical bar” so it would seen as a relation to the parallel bars – which it is.

    In the US, Josiah Grant (YouTube user name OOBadazzOO) has been posting videos of himself pole dancing for years, and he has some astounding moves and combinations. I’m not sure how he got started, but he also seems to be emphasizing the sport and fitness aspects.

    Actually there appear to be no Hungarian men in the piece. The competition is happening in Budapest, but the male competitors are all from elsewhere (not that there aren’t athletic Hungarians, there definitely are).
