From time to time, Erin and I receive some pretty fun products in the mail, whether it’s by snail or the big WWW. Awhile back, Erin reviewed Carmen Electra’s Vegas Strip, and apparently that was enough to open the stripping products floodgates to us, for just days after her post went live, we were offered the opportunity to review a dance pole. That’s right, a stripper pole.Neither of us really wanted to mount (pun intended) one of these babies into our living quarters. Heck, Erin’s landlord barely let her keep her dog, so I doubt that he’d be agreeable to a remodel. But, maybe you guys do. So without further ado, here is the Lil’ Minx dance pole:
Definitely for the adventuresome types, this pole lets you take pole dance workouts to your living room, basement or bedroom (gah-rowl). The poles are professional grade, made in the good ol’ USA and are shipped all over the world for gyms offering pole dance classes—and now for you. The poles vary in sizes, colors and retail from $229 to $375, depending on the “grade” of pole. And heck, they’ve been featured on VHI, and Paris Hilton has one. Those are some serious endorsements.
And if you’re like the FBGs and have no idea what you’d do with a pole except awkwardly spin around it and get pole burns, you can get music and instructional DVDs about how to use it and tone problem areas. Bonus!
For more on the poles, go to www.lilmynx.com or you can buy them on Amazon. And if you do get one or already have one, for the love of God, share your experience below. We are way too shy for that mess, but that doesn’t mean that we’re not intrigued. —Jenn
