Is pole dancing for beginners (<a href="http://knowledge.giize.com/pole-dance/">http://knowledge.giize.com</a>) dancing the pinnacle of manhood? Is it not a form of "modernism"? To some extent, the answer is yes. And so do pole dancing's more immediate aims.
As such, it makes perfect sense that for us, pole dancing can seem like a strange form of manhood. It is, in fact, a celebration of manhood. According to <a href="http://www.ehow.com/search.html?s=Robert%20Buhner%27s">Robert Buhner's</a> essay "Worse Than the New Pornographers: The True Story of Manhood," our culture has become "a breeding ground of radical masculinity that seeks to redefine the role played by femininity and manhood."
What's more, it has fostered an ever-evolving social order that has made it difficult for women to be held responsible for one another. In the 1970s, "soul and sensuality, even in the '60s, were taboo subjects," wrote Paul S. Sacks, a feminist writer on the feminist blog Queerty, in a 2009 essay for The Nation at the Women's History Museum. "Nowadays, men need to be held responsible for their own lives." The idea is to "enslave" a society that values one of manhood's primary tenets, and one that values masculinity's role in manhood.
The pole dance concept is also central to the larger debate over whether and to what extent we need women in our culture.
The pole dancers' appeal is evident among many people and in the art world. In the 1980s the artist John Krasnoff produced two paintings. His painting "Slide for Life" demonstrates the effect of an unconscious love of the nude. The artist, who also worked on "Slide for Life," also uses it to show one of his young children's nude photos. A decade later, "Slide for Life" by the New York-based photographer Richard Wagner illustrates the influence of a sexual passion on the image that's often depicted. (See also "The Man Who Got Away.")
So it's no accident that American artist Sigmund Freud uses pole dancing as a tool for showing us how our culture sees female sexual roles. While the term pole dance has long been used to describe male sexuality, it is particularly popular among the working-class white women, who are now the fastest growing segment of an increasingly diverse, middle-class country. (See also the image of a beautiful blueberry crop on a white-hatted photo of a woman.) In recent years, many of these women
