Watch your mouth! Let's sort pole industry lingo...

What is the inevitability of changing the pole lingo and understanding of the 'individual meanings' worldwide, I wonder? 

How important is it to you, does it matter more when you have kids or don't you care either way?
I feel it is every adult's responsibility, to avoid predisposing children to adult innuendo.
So why do people feel it's OK to talk about pole dancing, an 'erotic behaviour', in such an irresponsible and willy nilly way?

Lingo idea/solutions to replace 'pole dancing' when referring to the fitness side of pole.

 Simple as A. B. C. Word Definition...

 A. 'Pole Routine' or 'Pole Art' - combining of dance (or ribbon etc) and vertical pole gymnastics together. Performing and arts section of the pole gymnastics arenas e.g. Circus E.g. "I am off to my pole routine class kids." Or to perform pole art.

 B. 'Pole dancing' - the combination of 'erotic' dance and pole gymnastics performed in adult  venues, 'adult only' entertainment.

 C. 'Vertical pole gymnastics' - purely gymnastics and calisthenics, does not include or combine any other movement style/s. Demonstration sport. 

Vertical Pole Gymnastics; is gymnastics and the fundamentals when learning, are very different to dance tuition... So please let's get the lingo sorted and call a spade a spade.

How important is the lingo of pole to you?
