    Should be handy if you have any plumbing jobs that need doing in future.

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.

    Get it and when she's not using it cover it in honey and wire it to the mains. It will make for an excellent bear trap.

    2 birds one stone.

    Why would anyone want a pole in their room. This is just weird imo. Say no to having the pole but try and make it up in some other way.
    I don't think it's weird.. Just inconvenient and annoying
    You don't think it's weird? It's a pole. In your house.

    Maybe she has plans to gradually convert your house into a strip club and then kick you out.

    Has she got any bras with tassles or sequins on them? If she has then I'd be worried.

    I'm sure there's a section at Whickes for what you need.

    She wants a pole in the living room you mean? That's complete nonsense. Bedroom at a massive push, but not if it's a main room in the house where folk will be around.

    Treat it the same way you'd treat any other sizable bit of exercise equipment. How would you feel if it was a stationary bike or a bench press or something?

    Just get a removable one.

    So how does it work. I'm assuming that a pole from floor to ceiling that can take total body weight needs to be fitted into the joists?

    Tell her your joists are too narrow and it could bring the ceiling down.

    FCUTA!

    if it was a bench press i'd be pretty worried about my mrs getting rock solid norks especially if that was the only exercise she was doing.

    I've got some spare dollar bills if you need them kad.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    I'd love some sort poledancing in the room whilst I play a nice misogynistic videogame. Go for it.

    Just to clear things up - is this pole removable? i.e. she puts it up, does her routine, then packs it away somewhere?

    Why can't you just provide your own pole for her to dance on

    I think you are being entirely reasonably. I can help you out though - I am quite happy for her to install her pole in my games room. Is she free Friday night?

    20 entry lads, includes first pint and dance. Crisps and nuts will also be served free of charge.

    I'm with MD. If it was a rowing matching or something like that you'd probably put it in the garage. So get her to put it in the garage.

    Either that or roll with it and go the full nine yards. Make a small raised dais in the bedroom, get mirror tiles on the wall behind, put up some spotlights, get a decent sound system, set up some chairs in front of the dais. When she's training, get some mates around to "play strip club". You can all sit there and make howling sounds and do cat calls and stuff, giving her a more realistic Stripper Pole routine and you and your mates something to do on Wednesdays when there's not much on the telly anyway.

    I don't get why you wouldn't encourage a free pole dancing show from your other half.

    My mrs said the same thing once, but she realised that we wouldn't have a place to put it practically. And yes, it was for fitness. In the end, she chose a different exercise regime.

    It's apparently a fairly common thing with women that want to keep fit

    Surely this is the perfect opportunity for a bit of brinksmanship.

    She's taken up pole dancing as a hobby, you could take up boxing, then ask to install a boxing ring in the bedroom

    I don't doubt the strength and cardio benefits of a solid pole workout, but there is no chance I'm having a permanent fucking pole in the middle of the living room.

    I wouldn't even settle for other sizeable exercise apparatus unless it was fold-able in some way and could be stored away if necessary.

    Distract her with some candyfloss or a bell and she'll soon forget about it.
