Dance Dollars (Peekaboo)
Wow. Retailers in the UK a few years ago were selling a pole-dancing kit to help you “unleash the inner sex kitten inside.” You simply extended the Peekaboo pole, slip on some sexy tunes and away you go. The kit comprised on a chrome pole extendible to 8 feet, 6 inches, a sexy dance garter and a DVD of suggestible dance moves as well as some fake money. Controversy soon followed.
Retailers were forced to pull the kits after complaints from parents that it was “destroying children’s innocence.” Now to be fair, children are not depicted on the packaging or in the videos, nor was the kit marketed towards children. That would be all well and good, and a perfectly fair point, if the kit wasn’t available for sale in the Toy section. Major retailers agreed to remove the kit from Toy sections and sell them via their Fitness sections instead.
