    Default Pole Dancing: An Olympic Sport?

    What do you think? Should pole dancing be an Olympic sport? Will it ever lose its reputation as a stripper dance?

    No. Just because something requires some athleticism doesn't make it a sport.

    Have you ever tried it? It's really hard. I took a class once and was shocked to see how hard it was. That said, I don't care what they make an Olympic sport, as the Olympics are already a joke to me and I refuse to watch them.

    It is really just another gymnastics challenge, so I don't think it is enough to be it's own sport. Some of the girls that are flipping around on high bars and stuff would probably make it look easy. To me it would be like making the high bars or the parallel bars or something like that a sport on its own. If they did add it I think it should just be added as part of the gymnastics competition.

    It's looks super hard, and those girls are in wicked shape. Still, I couldn't watch it in the Olympics without 'Porn Star Dancing' playing over and over and over in my head.

    I want to take a class for sure - heard it's a great workout!

    That said, I don't care either way if it's considered for the olympics - maybe they should put it in with their gymnastics routines.

    My X's SO is into pole dancing. They have a 2-bedroom house with the 2nd bedroom converted into a pole-dancing room. My 8YO comes home from her weekends there with stories of her skills. Two weeks ago she came home wearing a tank top with pole dancer on it. I just shake my head.

    I think it is dumb to try to include it with the Olympics.
