But I can't help but to disapprove when seemingly intellectual people and of good career status are so mis-informed!
Today I met a potential client whose theme i thought would fit well with a pole performance (excuse me, I don't always force it down people's throat, I sell only when I think it's appropriate and only if I feel you are at the capacity to understand that it is more than sleaze (or should it be less???)
The minute the comittee of this well-known financial organisation saw the pictures, they vehemently (complete with hand gestures) said "no no no, this is too provocative for us!"
Usually I'd be very defensive and start explaining how this act was recently featured in an outdoor national day dinner celebration and how pole has fast evolved to be the fitness regime of many ladies. But today I just said "Ok, next!" (as in next proposed entertainment performance item) and decide not to educate further.
Ask any of these girls and they will tell you how difficult it is to attain this level!.
Anyway it's ok, I'm not angry, upset or what. You don't have to console me by saying "ah well, you know, i understand it's vey difficult blah blah...but u see, people have different notions/mindset .........". I know I know it already, just want to let out steam a bit here...that's all...
...plus i'm ony too happy to have more receptive clients, cos tonight I have another pole performance....wee.e.e.e.!
So, tell me which part of it is provocative?
Hmm......I don't think so!
THE SENSUAL MOVES?
Or simply the fact that the dancer wraps herself around a pole that is deemed suggestive?
