Warning: Being Sexy could be hazardous to your health!

Pole Dancing gets me laid. . .up!!! My attempt to be sexy has failed miserably. This past summer, I decided that it was high time for me to try the newest workout trend of aerobic strip tease and pole dancing. After all, I’m married now so any lingering Catholic guilt should have died down. So…
