Well, my dear, I have a very set opinion.
Women are sexual beings, as are men. When we feel free enough to express ourselves to our full potential, the results are amazing, no, phenomenal, not just on a physical level, but spiritual, mental, and emotional as well. There is nothing wrong with pole dancing, belly dancing, etc etc etc. I do both: pole dance and belly dance (a relative newbie, I must mention), and my word, you feel so good about yourself, no matter the size of your belly, hips, etc. In fact, both look a little odd when they are done by an anorexically (word?) skinny person, and in pole dancing, you hurt yourself if you are too thin. Also, the experience of first showing my partner my tricks was really amazing.
This being said, these arts are very powerful and express the Divine Feminine and Divine Sexuality. Sex is powerful - it is a gift, from both partners, and an incredible tool to the Divine. (ha... Why do you think we cry for God?)
In ancient Egypt, belly dancing was never to be witnessed by men. It was an art expressed in the company of women only, much like the Moon Lodges of Native American civilizations. Woman is powerful - much more powerful than we give Her credit for.
If you take this sacred thing called Woman and flaunt it and jeer at it and stuff paper bills down Her bra, is She still sacred? If you buy the gift that She was meant to give to a suitor that caught Her fancy, is it still a gift? The obvious answer is NO.
Sex can be dirty and still be sacred. It can be downright laughable and still be sacred. It was meant to be all these things: dirty, funny, loving, spontaneous, loud, quiet... The list goes on! It can NOT be sold and still be sacred. Pardons, long ago (and maybe still) were bought from the Pope and bishops, and we would all agree that because of the nature of the exchange, it defiled the very foundation of the meaning of that exchange. Is this any different?
Some women may feel empowered that they would be worth so much to random men, but inside they know they are selling themselves. They are defiling Woman.
