Stripper Poles – Not just for strippers anymore!

by Chrystal Bougon on February 28, 2009

There are lots of stripper poles designed for your home which are called Portable Stripper Poles. There are a few things you should know before you buy a Stripper Pole and I have outlined some tips for you here. My most important piece of advice is to MEASURE your cieling befor you buy your home stripper pole. And, even though they are called PORTABLE STRIPPER POLES…what the manufacturere means is that you can put it up and take it down quickly. But, if you want to do inversions and really give it a work out, you should install the HARDWARE in your cieling or floor.

Tips from on buying your own Home Stripper Pole

1. Most ceilings seem to be about 8′ tall (or 96 inches). Of course, if you live in an apartment or a condo or if your house is older, you should measure. Also, sometimes more expensive or luxury homes seem to have 9′ cielings, but again, MEASURE before you buy a Portable Stripper Pole.The pole that has the most “wiggle” room for various ceiling heights is the TLC Portable Private Dancer Pole. This pole will work with a cieling anywhere from 7’4″ up to 9’2″ tall. This pole can be used with or without the hardware required for the ceiling. If you do not want to install the bolt in your ceiling, you can just use it with the compression. (Wedged tightly between the floor and the cieling.) However, we STRONGLY recommend you install the bolt in the ceiling so you do not hurt yourself.

More details about the Private Dancer Pole:
Spice up your love life or spice up your workout!This portable stripper pole from TLC is super easy to install and to takeback down when you have visitors!Private Dancer Pole Kit, Pink • Adjustable: minimum height: 7’ 4” (2.2 m) maximum height: 9’ 2” (2.7 m) • Rubber non-slip pads protect floor and ceiling • For use on hardwood floor or carpet • Heavy duty steel for longevity • Kit includes: erotic dance instructional DVD, black feather boa, black lace garter, fake money • Installation instructions included, can be used with or without screws • 7’ 4” to 9’ 2” x 2″ (2.2 m to 2.7 m x 5 cm)

2. If you really plan to give your pole a work out and you want to hang upside down from it, the strongest and most strudy pole seems to be the My Sexy Stripper Pole from Sweet Lust. Again, this pole has a bolt or nipple style attachment for the ceiling. It’s very easy to put up and take back down, but you do hae to install the bolt in the ceiling to give it the strenght and stability to allow you to spin and hang upside down on it. (You should be under 200lbs with all of the poles.) You can view the INSTALLTION INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE MY SEXY POLE on our shopping site at: MY SEXY POLEThis pole only works with ceilings 7’5″ to 8’5″ high.

I should mention that all of these poles work best with the type of ceilngs that have NO texture. (Meaning the popcorn texture does not work well as it can create a flat sop on your ceiling if you put it up and take it down often.)The My Sexy Pole is by far our best selling stripper pole and it is very simple to install and very simple to put up and take town – just in case you have company or your Mother In Law is coming over for dinner.

Also, if you would like to hear our radio show where we talked about how to buy a Stripper Pole, you can listen to our podcast about how to buy the right pole for your home on Better Sex Radio. Just log on to
There are other poles, too, that we don’t sell. For example, if you want a stage with your pole, you have to pay upwards of $400 and buy one of the Platinum Stage Poles. Lil Mynx also offers a beautiful pole – but I suggest you buy their poles direct from them. It’s important you email them or call them and let them know exacly where you plan to use it and exactly what height you want your pole. They can even custom cut a pole for you. The Platinum Stages poles and the Lil Mynx poles are not as easy to put up and take down, but they will allow for a very rigorous workout and are more like professional poles for a gym, pole dancing studio or for a gentelman’s club.

If you have additional questions, give us a call at 408-600-8371 or toll free at 866-200-9475 and we can help you find the right stripper pole for you. (You can call it a FITNESS POLE, too!)

Blissfully,Chrystal Bougon

I’m looking at a place with amazing 18ft ceilings! Only prob is- Portable poles arent made that tall bc they’re too week at that length. A lot to think about- this may be a deal breaker for the place. Girl’s Gotta Have her pole!
