“I just want to make people happy,” she said, wearing a bikini covered in white feathers and with angel wings. “But I like the Olympic idea. I think it is good that now we pole dancers aren’t just seen as strippers.”

Anyone interested in broadening his/her horizon, go to Youtube and search for "Pole Dancing Like You've Never Seen It". It's a couple pole dancing. Sorry it's not sleazy.

Anyway, nice to see something new.

What a load of BS. Pole dancing is a stipper's dance and to compare it with real Olympic athletics is absurd. Maybe the next trend will be to promote topless car washers or strip-o-gram services. The Olympic's is a series of games to honor the best of the best atheletes and not some freak show of odd perverted talent.

Hawkeye,

I guarantee that would guarantee a huge viewership of the Olympics. Probably move to pay per view.

I prefer sumo in olympics instead of this pervert entertainment.

Pole dancing should become a compulsory part of the Japanese curriculum for girls.

Obviously, LoveUSA is turned on by sumos in their mawashi as much as the guys are turned on by the girls on their poles. Both pervy, heheh.

My 70 year old aunt sent me the link to the Youtube clip. I didn't look at it for a couple of days because I didn't think much of it, but after I watched it, I was pretty amazed what that couple could do and had a total new view regarding pole dancing.

"Pole dancing is a stipper's dance and to compare it with real Olympic athletics is absurd" - unfortunately this is no longer the case - from an exciting event, this has become dull and lifeless, not sexy at all. It is gymnastics now, and therefore lost it's punch.

There should be poles at every train station.
