My boyfriend tried Hoop and Silk!


Mens pole dancing a great post from Polehigh from 2013. The power strength and agility can only be admired. Thanks Polehigh

IMG_0372 I like the idea of Phil trying out the hoop and silk for many reasons. Firstly, I think it’s cool for him to try something few men would dare. The mere fact that he has to wear tights and hold awkward poses in front of other people is difficult enough.

Also I like him to have an idea of what I do in the studio so that he’ll know what to tell other people if they asked. He can help a lot in this changing-poledancing-hoop-silk-mindsets-campaign.

Third, I want him to have a bit of background so that in the future, he can help me out when I do some stunts. While I think it’s farfetched, there’s still that little hope that he’d love it and he’d be a regular and he’d be my partner in the future but let us not get carried away!IMG_2015IMG_0379IMG_2030

Anyway, I think he pulled it…

Where do I buy male leotards?


For those who seek the ultimate freedom of movement, the leotard and or the biketard is second to none. But where do you buy one and what should you look for?

Both womens and mens nylon lycra and cotton lycra leotards  can be bought online or at dance stores. There are many styles to choose from, including the biketard cut to the cheeky thong cut.

Such as the photo above at Eleve Dancewear, and the gallery below.

Personally I believe fit and comfort take priority. If you can’t go to the store, you need to make sure you will fit into it. Many suppliers will make you a custom lycra leotard or biketard, providing you are prepared to wait a few weeks and supply your measurements.

Usually each designer will ask you to measure your bust, waist and then the girth (length between the groin to top of the shoulder).

 

 

For vintage lycra male leotards they can be difficult to obtain, mainly due to the fact that they were around int he 1970’s and 1980’s, but there were more women’s leotards made.

However with some shopping around on www.etsy.com or a quick search of www.ebay.com, you can pick up a good quality leotard which will keep your workouts interesting.

The problem with male leotards is that they have such low demand for funky wayout colours that manufacturers only put out blacks, blues and browns. See below.

When you compare the range and type of leotards for women, its a good thing that leotards can be unisex and can be worn by men, women and children. There is a slight difference between male and female leotards, being the additional fabric in the front pouch area. However, if you are wearing lycra shorts or gym shorts over them, no one is none the wiser.
