Maybe a few of our retired firefighters on the forum can add to this story?   ;)


I don't think this is what you had in mind...

Here's some history from a wiki article...   not sure how accurate it is because I see one glaring error...   they say pole dancing didn't move into strip clubs until the 1980s...

I know I've s...   err...  heard about it in clubs around here before that 8* 8* 8*

Quote
Pole dancing can be traced back more than two thousand years, to sports that were only participated in by men. Mallakhamb [7] is an Indian sport, which utilizes the same principles of endurance and strength as pole, using a wooden pole, wider in diameter than a modern standard pole, which has a large wooden ball at the top. Chinese pole also has a male dominated history, using two poles, on which men would perform “gravity defying tricks” as they leapt from pole to pole, at approximately twenty feet in the air. The dancing, which has been utilized in strip clubs in the erotic version of the sport, was initially part of dances performed in matriarchal societies, performed by women for women, and not as an erotic act for men.[8] In the 1920’s, traveling circuses and side shows would utilize pole dancing with a pole in the middle of a tent. Eventually the activity moved from tents to bars, and combined with burlesque dance aspects, but did not move into erotic or strip tease territory until the 1980’s, first in Canada, then the United States. [9]

In the 1990’s, Fawnia Mondey Dietrich began teaching pole dancing as an art and fitness. In the last twenty years, pole dancing classes have emerged as a popular form of recreational and competitive sport. K.T. Coates, a famed competitive pole dancer, and the International Pole Dancing Federation, are currently behind a campaign to include competitive pole dance in the Olympics in 2016. Numerous competitions exist, including the World Pole Sport Championship, U.S. Pole Federation Championship, and International Pole Masters Cup Championship. [10]

LOL   I had many "friends" that wanted to know if they could slide down the pole.
I generally told them the proper attire found at "other places with poles" was the only way I could allow it...   ;)

Did you know in the movie Backdraft... 

There was a steamy love scene between Brian (Baldwin) and Jennifer (Jennifer Jason Leigh) on top of the Fire Engine

I'm pretty sure after this movie that was re-enacted across the US   ;D

Some pet lovers go to a lot of extreme...   even famous ones:

 The most famous of all New Year's Day parades, The Tournament of Roses, dates back before the turn of the last century in 1890.

The first Rose Bowl Game was played in 1902 but then it didn't happen again until 1916, when it finally stuck and eventually became a yearly tradition.
