Umm… okay so I’m like always hungry. And it really sucks to be hungry while you’re pole dancing. It happens though, especially when you always schedule classes around dinner time. But my pole buddies and I remedy this by setting up food dates right after class. Asides from poling itself, nothing feels better than eating after pole. Oftentimes, if we end up at a “fancier” restaurant where the portions are kinda tiny we always end up craving a snack afterwards – $1 slice pizza anyone?There’s never enough food! Okay a bit of an exaggeration, but it definitely feels that way.
We eat a lot. It’s probably because we spend hours doing crazy stuff like lifting our body weight that we require a lot of food just to keep our bodies content.
As my boyfriend said one day while we were gulfing down on Halal Guys, “I’ve never met a girl who ate more and faster than me.”
I looked at him. “Yeah, cuz I’m a poler” and kept eating.
“Do you want the rest of yours?” and started picking at his plate.
Pole Dance Problems (PDP) is an comedic illustration series for pole dancers who face a unique set of problems both on the pole and off. They are often painful, embarrassing but more than not they make us happy and proud to be a pole dancer.
Halloween is just a few short days away, and things aren’t exactly what they seem. Particularly when it comes to my cat. I’ve noticed him staring at my pole. Lounging with my Pleasers. Eyeing my drawer of pole clothes. I shake my head and tell myself it’s not possible. That everything pole related I’ve noticed lately is purely coincidence. That he’s just a cat, and cats don’t pole dance.
Or do they?
But when the photos came, I couldn’t find a single one that I liked. My costume was too big, and I showed. My stomach looked flabby. My hair was a mess. I didn’t hold some tricks nearly as long enough as I had thought, and those I had held weren’t really aimed at the audience. So, I had a good cry, shut my laptop, and decided to look back at them another day.
