Aibu to think its an art form?

(Just watching itv it's a good documentary!)

mrsjay Sun 14-Apr-13 22:44:48

meh it is dancing and taking clothes off do you think pole dancing is artistic I personaly dont have anything against it I just don't see the 'art' in it, the women do look fantastic though envy

I wrote my dissertation on this subject! Far too tired to discuss it now but is a really interesting debate smile

I suppose it could be considered an art form if it's done extremely well.

But then so could most things really.

I think some forms of it can be very artistic but a lot of the time it is just women taking their clothes off with a few feathers and nipple pasties for fun. I have nothing against it and if I had a better body I'd love to try it.

It's one of those topics that fascinates me. Where dancing as an art meets stripping which is not an art I suppose

sybilfaulty Sun 14-Apr-13 22:49:56

I have never seen it, nor really know much about it, but I do like this

mrsjay Sun 14-Apr-13 22:50:54

do you think it is because it is an older form of stripping where it had a bit more mystery to it ? it really is just stripping though

Worriedmumofan8yearoldgirl Sun 14-Apr-13 22:52:01

It's like most things of yesteryear, less brash and in your face than things that go on now. Saying that a lot of things we consider art were frowned upon and hated by contemporaries.

It's naff of the highest order.

Art is subjective. It's art if you think/say it's

"Far too tired to discuss it now but is a really interesting debate"

Really? Really? A really interesting debate???

<I don't think so>

milkwagon Sun 14-Apr-13 22:53:14

....art. blush

mrsjay Sun 14-Apr-13 22:53:41

it can be seen as a bit seaside postcadry though a bit naughty and cheeky which doesn't seem as threatening ( maybe not the word i want) than full on in your face lapdancing

milkwagon Sun 14-Apr-13 22:53:42

Oh god, x-posts everywhereblushblush

WorraLiberty Sun 14-Apr-13 22:55:14

I agree mrsjay, I think it's quite popular because it leaves more to the imagination.

Worriedmumofan8yearoldgirl Sun 14-Apr-13 22:56:59

It's as my nan and my mum always say. Don't give it all up on the first date and always leave them wanting more. That and always carry an air of mystery.

I feel like an old fart but I agree with them

Softlysoftly Sun 14-Apr-13 22:57:59

I don't mind it but at my dd1s (3) dance show last week at all the kids had danced4 mothers came on in corsets anddid an excruciating burlesque attempt in front of an audience of bored siblings

That I think was not art. ....

Softlysoftly Sun 14-Apr-13 22:58:40

My keyboard is having space issues!

mrsjay Sun 14-Apr-13 23:00:15

oh no no a million times no softly <cringe>

AnyFucker Sun 14-Apr-13 23:01:03

There are some people who will try and tell you a carefully arranged used tampon and a turd are an "art form"

I don't go along with that either

mrsjay Sun 14-Apr-13 23:03:28

Softlysoftly Sun 14-Apr-13 23:03:29

Yes mrsjay I swear nearly all my toes broke from the curling.

I was sat next to my friends 11 year old ds, he was trying to crawl under the seat grin

Lj8893 Sun 14-Apr-13 23:04:13

Yes Minty.......from someone who spent 9 months intensively researching burlesque and other forms of striptease, including the history of it and the is it an art form debate, and then write a 10000 word dissertation on the subject, yes, I do find it an interesting debate.

mrsjay Sun 14-Apr-13 23:04:40

they thought it was ok to do it in front of children spose its art innit grin Id have curled up into a ball too
