Poll of Poles (With Video!)

This week’s cover story probes the pole-dancing-as-fitness trend and poses the following question: Is swinging ‘round stripper-style a healthy way to empower one’s femininity as those who do the classes attest, or is it just plain demeaning? Would you learn The Swing as a way to embrace your sexuality and surprise your man for a special occasion, or do you take offense to terms like “set your table?”

Check out the video after the jump, give our story a read and discuss. And I ’spose the mens can weigh in as well, if they’re so inclined. --Megan Feldman
