Pole Skivvies Interview

Listen to internet radio with PoleSkivvies on Blog Talk Radio

Check out my interview with Jennifer Michelle of Pole Skivvies on Blog Talk Radio.

Jennifer is the owner of Pole Skivvies, a website and blog for the pole community.

We discuss my guidebook and self-discovery journal, The Pole Position: Is Stripping for You (And How to Stay Healthy Doing It), the misconceptions people have about strippers, what qualities make for a good stripper, the dialogue between the pole dancing community and strippers, and women's expression and conflict of sexuality.

Jennifer has also introduced a new award…

PoleSkivvies knows there’s another side to pole. One beyond debates on sexy versus fitness, or whether we should be in the Olympics.

We see how many studios contribute to charities, how many hold fundraisers. We see how often pole dancers reach out to help one another in times of need, and we know the primary goal within the pole community is one of encouragement and support.

PoleSkivvies thinks it’s time to shift the focus to what’s really important.

That’s why we created the Make a Difference Award.

Designed to recognize the strength and compassion within the pole community, it honors those who have made it a priority to give back, both within and outside the world of pole.

An annual award, it will first be awarded June 2012, with the winner to be announced at the International Pole Convention. The winner will be awarded:

•An inscribed plaque

•$500 donation from PoleSkivvies to the charity or cause they support

•One hour of marketing coaching from J Michelle Marketing

•Free advertising of their pole studio or product for one year in Pole Dance Magazine Online

•Write-ups in Vertical Art & Fitness Magazine and Pole Dance Magazine Online

In addition, they will serve as PoleSkivvies Ambassador for one year, promoting pole, community, and giving back.

    Sheilaaaa! Congratulations on this publication. You've been working hard on this for several years. I love the cover photo, taken a mere twenty years ago for a photo book called "Big Town, Little Town: Nudes for the Urban Environment"! I always knew you were self-actualizing and creative. -- Frankster
