Allow me to rephrase, I work out at a place that teaches pole dancing lessons. It's a great way to exercise and there is even a push to make it an Olympic sport. It's a lot like gymnastics, except there is a little more hip action! We are having a competition in a downtown night club, and yes, everyone has clothes on, so it's not stripper stuff, it's a show. No, I'm not competing, but many of my friends are and I want to go cheer them on. My boyfriend does not want to go with me. He said he thinks I'll get upset if he looks at the other women. I'm not the jealous type, and no one is getting a lap dance or anything like that! How do I convince him to go as my date?
