Girls Denied Pole-Dancing In Britain

Tesco, Britain's biggest retailer, has decided to pull it's "Peekaboo Pole-Dancing Kit" (£50 or $125) from the toys and games section of its website, Tesco Direct, after outraged parents complained that it "destroy's children's lives."

The kit comes complete with a three-piece 8'6" chrome plated, extendable dance pole, instructional DVD, one Peekaboo Sexy Garter, and 100 Peekaboo Dance Dollars to stuff in that garter or where ever. The blurb on the kit urges its owners to: "Unleash the sex kitten inside ... simply extend the Peekaboo pole inside the tube, slip on the sexy tunes and away you go! Soon you'll be flaunting it to the world and earning a fortune in Peekaboo Dance Dollars." So really, it's an educational toy meant to teach a trade.

Dr. Adrian Rogers of the Family First group is appalled, "It is an open invitation to turn the youngest children on to sexual behaviour. This will be sold to four, five and six-year olds. This is a most dangerous toy that will contribute towards destroying children's innocence. Children are being encouraged to dance round a pole which is interpreted in the adult world as a phallic symbol. This should only be available to the most depraved people who want to corrupt their children."

Tesco denies it is marketing the pole-dancing kit to children and claims it is a, uh, er, fitness accessory. That's it, a fitness accessory. Said a Tesco spokesman, "Pole dancing is an increasing exercise craze. This item is for people who want to improve their fitness and have fun at the same time." So, there you are.

British parents who wish to train their daughters for a lucrative career in the exciting world of exotic dancing can still purchase a pole-dancing kit at the main Peekaboo website along with their Home Lap Dance Kit (only £6.99, cheap!).

"British parents who wish to train their daughters for a lucrative career in the exciting world of exotic dancing"... Should be prosecuted on the grounds of child abuse and corrupting a minor!

ditto to what "right wing" said.

Unfortunately I think it's too late for Britain. They've got one foot firmly in the swamp and the other is sliding in.
