Erotic Pole Dancing DVD

The Erotic Pole Dancing DVD has sexy moves you can learn at home, and at your own pace. The DVD is made by LovingSex and has an intro by Dr. Patti Britton. Dr. Britton was the president of the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) from 2006-2008. She has helped thousands of couples enhance their sexuality through her workshops, DVD’s, on ivillage.com and on her website yoursexcoach.com. The video features instruction by two professional dancers with their own studio in New York and 5 couples who are trying out pole dancing for the first time. I say couple’s here and not just women because the men make special appearances in the interview clips and in the last two chapters.

I got this DVD from FunWares for review and I have to admit I was a little bit skeptical. I have a slow learning curve especially when it comes to any kind of dance. Could a DVD really break it down enough for me to make it look good? Umm, well I am actually still working on it. In the meantime this Erotic Pole Dancing DVD is giving me a good workout. The instructors in the video are Wendy and Tracy Traskos. They break down all the moves at a really fast pace. The Chapters on the video are:

  1. Introduction
  2. Stretching and Warm-Up
  3. Transitions
  4. Tricks and Choreography
  5. Climbing
  6. Routine Workout
  7. Variations
  8. Pole Seduction
  9. Lover’s Climax

The instructional portion of the video goes really fast. Rewind and do that again for me, fast! To be honest, the instructors are intimidating. Both of them have 6 pack abs and perfect little bodies. While the two professionals are giving instruction, the video cuts to 5 women who are learning the moves as well. They are looking awkward and trying to catch up right along with the instructor’s neck-breaking pace, too. They are all at their supposed homes and they are all typical women. These woman do not look like they do porn at all. They are real woman, not perfect barbie stick figures! So after rewinding and playing the same move over and over(well that’s what I did anyways), you can see how these real woman make it look. I think anyone could learn these moves watching these women, I just needed to see it more than once!

The same women are all featured throughout every chapter doing every move. It looks like it is all done on the same day, since they don’t change clothes until chapter 8. I really loved this aspect… Chapter 8 shows the women doing the routine for their men. Some of them look really good and they are just using the moves taught on the instructional part. It is a bit awkward for some and really inspirational at the same time. After all of them demonstrate a bit for their men, it cuts back to Dr. Patti Britton and she tries to illicit inspiration for having fun with being sexy. The video then goes back to the women and interviews them with their husbands.

Chapter 9 shows the men’s reaction, and guess what…right after the erotic pole dance every couple has sex! This is real couple’s sex with people that know each other. Unfortunately, the jazz music in the background almost ruins the romance. I thought the sex looked genuine. It was almost soft porn with the only the guys getting some head and then straight sex. It was a turn on only because after watching the girls try so hard to get their man excited I wanted them to get some good sex!

This was the most original workout DVD I have ever seen!

The DVD is 70 minutes long. It has a few bonus items like: Sexuality Info which includes Tips from Dr. Patti Britton, General Sexuality Info and Help on the Web. It has previews of other LovingSex DVD’s available and a Bonus Scene that is over 6 mins long from Modern Tantra Workshop which is another DVD from LovingSex. Oh and this DVD includes an audio cd as well but all the music sounds like porn music from the 80′s. I only listened to one song, but it was enough for me to know it is not quite my style. While this DVD may not appeal to everyone, I really liked the genuineness of this DVD and the woman that starred in it. I like that it was entertaining and instructional.

MiPole Professional Dance Pole

I got a MiPole Professional Dance Pole from FunWares a few weeks ago. I am loving this pole for it’s easy set up and professional feel. If you have ever thought about getting a dance pole for your house, this should be it! For some reason looking at the picture on the website, I thought this would be smaller? The box it came in was pretty large and weighed about 18 lbs. It is a full sized professional pole. It comes complete with a carry case for storage and portability. I can’t imagine taking his out and setting it up at anyone’s house, but I never know what the future holds…

The set comes with everything you need to set it up except two things….a stud finder and and a level. Ideally, you would want to install this on a flat surface with a concrete ceiling. I have a popcorn ceiling so I needed the stud finder to hit the beams on my ceiling. I use the level to make sure the pole is straight once I get it assembled.

Once I got it all layed out, I had the two bases, two long poles, 2 shorter poles, two adapter type attachments (that fit in the smaller poles), a base piece and the tool (which looks like a hook). The set also included instructions with diagrams and two star pink nipple pasties.

All in all, it took about 2 hours for us to actually put it up. The next time it was much easier and only took about 15 minutes. It is fairly easy to take down and put back up. I prefer to leave it up somewhere, but I kinda don’t want the pole in my Christmas pictures, ya know..My living room is the only place with enough room for me to use the pole. I just hope when we move our bedroom will be big enough for a more permanent set-up of his pole.

This pole works on virtually any surface. It won’t work on vaulted ceiling, the two bases should be flat. I have wood floors, but this product is suppose to work on carpet and tile as well. I have not had this pole let me down. It stays up as long as I remember to tighten it before each use. It is the perfect diameter for spinning and various other pole exercise. I really like this pole and I would recommend it.

To put it together just screw the long pieces together. Then attach the base to the long screw looking pole. (Use the allan wrench for that)


Attach the long pole you just created to the screw looking base.

Then, find the right sized attachments to fit your ceiling and plug them in.

Once you get it snug, adjust the screw lock and tighten it up.

Then slide the aesthetic cover over the exposed metal.

This pole will fit ceilings up to 9′. It is very stable when it is properly installed and will support up to 250lbs. It does not screw in the ceiling of the floor so it will not create unsightly looking holes. I have a popcorn ceiling and it did not damage it at all. I am very pleased with the MiPole Professional Dance Pole.¬† My performance on the pole, however, needs more practice.

My only complaint about this pole is that the base cover has a pronounced lip on it. This does hurt when I slide on it since it is not completely flush. The flip side would be having the adjustments be on top, which would make them much harder to get to. I can overlook that flaw to have a sturdy dance pole that is still portable. I would highly recommend this pole, it is a great deal for the price!

Thanks so much to FunWares for sending me this product to review. You can get a MiPole Professional Dance Pole for yourself at FunWares.

Pole Dancing

Did you know that Pole Dancing is a sport? Think about it….it is competitive, it requires strength and endurance, it requires skillz. It is a sport and some people start doing it for fitness and to feel sexy. I have wanted to be sexy on the pole ever since I saw the first girl twirl on it. Miguel knows this about me. He also knows I would not look into this myself. I did find a link on an adult store website that linked to a studio in Tampa. Until I saw the website I had no idea that people offered classes on Pole Dancing.


Okay, so fast forward a few weeks ago when Miguel called me all excited that he had something for me. It was a 5 class package at a local studio! I was really excited. I could now go and learn this sexy sport, and by luck he get me classes at one of the best studios in the area. Impulse Pole Dance & Erotic Fitness. They hold all kinds of credentials: Pole Position Certification, AFAA Certification for Group Fitness, US Pole Dance Federation, Pole Fitness Association, They were voted Best of the bay from Creative Loafing. I gotta admit that I was a bit intimidated to make the appointment for the class. I’m white, and I have no coordination. I was re-assured of this every time I took a Zumba class at my local gym. I have two left feet or something. I over-think things when I dance. I think I dance good when I am Eyz because

  1. it is dark
  2. everyone is drinking
  3. I relax my critical self when I am drinking

I made the appointment this week. I took my first class yesterday. I can see that I am going to get hooked. I loved the atmosphere of the studio and the friendliness of the instructor. The cool thing about pole dancing is that there is a pole that you can grab on to. As long as the pole doesn’t fall over all I have to do is hold on. I am definitely going back. Miguel doesn’t know it yet, but my obsessive Gemini nature is going to be all consuming about this until I get bored with it. This might end up costing us some more money. **Please don’t ask me to dance if you see me at the club. This, like everything else worth doing is going to take time and hard work. Those of you that really know me know I am determined enough to make most things I want happen.

The studio I went to also offers cheeky chair classes, foxy floor work and booty basics. I don’t think I am ready for all of that….yet. I expect you will hear more about this later. I am hoping to be able to get a pole for my house so I can work out at home. I want your opinion….
