WAAAY off topic, but there are competitions? That's pretty neat :)
I do the smaller competitions that some of the local clubs hold. They send out their event girls to all the strip clubs in the area and find they think have the most talent and personality. Then a venue is picked and stages and poles are set up. It's pretty fun and if keeps me in shape other than horseback riding. I've never won because I don't know nearly as much as some of these girls but I try to attend as much as I can.
I've only been to one of the big ones in Toronto Canada a year or so ago and went to their two day prep camp. That was awesome.
The stripper thing just keeps me up on my pole skills when there aren't competitions going on and it keeps me used to somewhat of an audience.
I was thinking of doing vaulting because of my balance. One of the clubs managers suggested rigging up a pole system and attaching it to a cart pulled my Caleigh...I have no idea how that would work but it might be interesting.
