Poledancing for Gender Equality
Only in Hungary. Here’s what the pithy satirical news website Pestiside has to say about a new pole-dancing world record…
If there was ever going to be a pole-dancing world record set, you knew it would have to come from Hungary.
A reasonable hypothesis.
Former pornstar and pole dancing world champion Alma Pirner along with several other strippers pole artistes got together at the Dollhouse dance studio and slid up and down and ground their bodies against a chrome pole for 24 hours, with Pirner setting a solo record for eight hours of consecutive sliding around.
How invigorating. But the kind of thing you could read about every day online at Blikk, if you could er, penetrate the impenetrable, the Hungarian language that is. But here comes the kicker.
When asked why this did this, Pirner said that it was to prove that women are just as physically and mentally capable as men, and deserve to be treated equally in the workplace, which is kind of like BP promoting responsible deep-sea oil drilling, but still, it’s the thought that counts, right?
One of the joys of living in this country. Much of the time, there’s no need to make it up.
