That Time I Went Pole Dancing

Or my dancer name would be Sexy Beast.

One of my social media friends, Sybil Lindsay,  invited a group of mom bloggers to The Velvet Lily for an event hosted by owner Khara Cartagena. Khara presented a wonderful informative “how to” bring the spark back with advice about practicing safe usage of sex toys and tips keep the spark alive in romance. She was approachable, friendly and, yes after I blushed a few times, I was very comfortable asking questions and getting information.

The Velvet Lily is an upscale erotica shop with items for sale for women and men to use solo or with a partner. The variety of objects are priced for every budget. Our class educated us on types of lubricators, objects to use for our solo pleasure and how to get back the sexy with a short pole dancing lesson.

The store sports a stripper pole. That I used. Not very well, I mean I can’t quit my day gig or anything but I was inspired enough to gift myself a series of pole dancing lessons for the holidays. (Total aside: I have mad respect for dancers! I was sore after just a minute or so on that pole! And I apologize for that ridiculous run on sentence). We were treated to a pole dance demo by an expert dancer who says that the pole has helped her stay fit and relieve stress. There was also an opp to try the pole ourselves (as I don’t want to end up on Tosh.0 I will save that video for another time).

We had a variety of food from Catalyst Juice cleanse, a raw food company. The selection was pretty tasty and my perception of raw food has changed to something more positive.

Below are pictures from the event.

Working my hotness,


I am mom, daughter, sister, yarn lover, word lover, crazy cat lady and library chick. Find me with book or with hook and a hot cuppa.
