From the Erotic Domain, an Aerobic Trend in China

BEIJING — Clad in knee-high leather boots, spandex shorts and a sports bra, Xiao Yan struck a pose two feet off the ground, her head glistening with sweat and her arms straining as she suspended herself from a vertical pole.

“Keeping your grip is the hardest part,” she said. “It’s really easy to slide downward.”

Ms. Xiao, 26, who works as a supermarket manager, is one of a growing number of women experimenting with China’s newest, and most controversial, fitness activity: pole dancing. [...]


Russian brides used to be the hot thing. Could Chinese brides be the next? Maybe so if they keep pole dancing! And who doesn't love Chinese food?

Pole dancer coach? I'd love that job. A bunch of spandex clad women bowing before me. Oh yeah...

And it's just kind of wrong that the guy wrote the first article is named "Wang".

True story:

While I was working for a major computer manufacturer years ago, I was sent to Taiwan. The Taiwanese, in order to make Western foreigners more comfortable in doing business with them (and because we are going to mangle their name anyway), sometimes give themselves Western-style nicknames or transliterate their first name.

I met a man named "Great Wang".

"wang", in Chinese, means "king"
