At Home Stripper Poles - What one?

jakjak jakjak
Want to get one for my wife but there are many out there. Requirements are carpet base, 8' ceiling, 140lbs, and easy to assemble and disassemble.

Anyone have any good experience with a certain one? Would like not to spend a whole bunch but welcome any ideas.

Stripper and Fireman poles should come standard in all houses

This is probably a dumb question, but do male strippers use poles also?

If they're in a strip club, yes. Go-go dancers don't usually use poles, regardless of their gender.

So now I'm picturing my living room with a fireman pole descending from the second floor..

Lil Minx carries some good stuff:

I've been told they don't slip at all. I've heard the Carmen Electra pole sometimes slides off of it's base. Plus, I think it only holds 180 pounds. Minx holds 200. It's not bad just to be safe if she wants to put a lot of weight on it. (And actually use it as a REAL pole)

And this has the crappiest website ever, but I recommend it the most.

They are especially made for dance clubs, so they do stay up and DO the hold weight. Hell, they go up to 300 pounds, and it's the ONLY pole that holds more than 200, so it's a pretty good idea. However, it's also expensive.

But if your wife isn't looking to actually USE it (like inversions and whatnot) then any pole will work as long as she doesn't actually pull any weight on it.

That could be handy for a lot of things

Yeah, w/ the three hundred pound one you could have two strippers at once!

I don't know if you can get them overseas or if they're just marketed as something else, but my poledancing school recommends the X-Pole. link.
These things are built to last and will hold up for serious pole workouts, instead of being a bit more for 'show' like other poles. I guess it also depends on how experienced your wife is jakjak and what she wants to do on it, but definitely do your research and buy something good quality if she wants to do any manoeuvres upsidedown etc. It's great fun and I loved every minute of learning, though poledancing is a serious workout on top of all the sexiness!

I've heard good things about the x-pole as well. It holds up well.

my whole point is you might as well do it right the first time. I have read up on Xpole and seems to be the best option for a removable one but still around $300. But maybe that is just the cost of entry. Thanks for the feedback!

Yeah they're not cheap, that's for sure, but like you said it's worth doing it right the first time! I still don't own one myself, despite all the time I invested in classes. Hope it works out for you.

It seems like it would not really cost that much to build a really sturdy, permanently mounted stripper pole / platform (if you had the tools and know-how of course).

yeah...my only deal is that she is of a family that frowns on pretty much everything other than vanilla activities. It is hard to get her out of her shell but we have come a long way so far. More to go for where I would like to be.

You could disguise it as a giant coat rack when the family visits

More and more strip clubs I go to, it's like a handful can use a pole, kind of sad. I would love a gf how wanted a stripper pole. Hell I would love more of my friends to admit they want one haha.

Hi All! I have a custom built stripper pole in my miving room When family comes over I simply detatch the pole from the stage and tuck it under my couch. I would highly recommend that you go to a professional pole class and they can usually set you up with their vendor, or in my case, my instructor's husband owned a construction company and built me one.

If you can, spend the money on a brass pole. They are sturdy, not too slim or too wide, and they will last you forever if you take care of them.

I also only recommend two types of installations...A stage set up like I have (it's a 4' by 4' black wood stage with a plexyglass top and an 8' pole that screws into the bottm of the structure) or a ceiling to floor model (you secure a bracket with a swivel attachmenet to a beam in the ceiling and you cut out a cirlce the width of your pole in your floor - that way you can slide the pole into the ceiling at an angle and then screw it ino the floor without damaging the pole or your floor, be it carpet or wood, etc.).

I dropped from a size 6 to a size 2 in one month of pole exercise! I am happy to answer any questions if you have them

I would highly recommend the X-Pole. It's sturdy, easily movable and it can be used in stationary or spinning mode.

I danced for several years so when it came time to purchase a pole for my home I was very selective about what product to spend my money one. If you are willing to drill a whole the Lil' Minx is also very good.

That's the one we'd get! It's on amazon.

I want to get one also. But not sure which one to choose. Too many on the market and no reviews to read on most of them.

I've had bad experiences with removable ones. They tend to lean (making any kind of dance precarious and difficult), wiggle, and break. It happened to me and I weighed about 95 lbs at the time.
