Review: Peekaboo Hot Pink Dance Pole

June 5, 2010

Hot Pink Dance Pole Kit
$165.00 from AdultSexToys.com

Until the moment I unveiled the box Maverick thought I was joking. I had to be joking. There was just no way that I had received a stripper pole to review. Yet I did. Why a stripper pole? Why the fuck not.  I have enough sex toys and I’ve always thought about pulling off some high class moves that would leave Maverick panting.  Sadly these thoughts feature me a hell of a lot skinnier, but none the less it still requires the first step of owning Peekaboo Hot Pink Stripper Pole first.

I’m going to come right out and say this from the start.  The max weight limit this pole claims to hold while not bolted down is 220LBS and 265lbs when secured. While I am under 200lbs I did not feel safe trying to test the pole out while unsecured and was unable to test it out secured as we rent. You try explaining to your landlord about why there are holes punched in the ceiling containing a hot pink stripper pole and let me know how it works out for you.

Before anyone starts screaming about review ethics I’ll explain to you why I felt uncomfortable despite being well under the max weight limit. You see, this little number is connected by three pipes. Each pipe fits so snuggly into each other that you may need to call on Hulk to help you get it apart once assembled.

Once you have the three pipes connected there is a top and bottom plate that connects to the ends. The bottom piece is a bit tricky to get on but does manage to snap into place. It features a non-skid bottom to be used on hardwood and carpeted floors. The top piece has a rubbery foam pad to help keep it in place as well.

My main concern however comes from the smaller extension pole with a spring mounted inside that you rotate before assembly to fit from 7’ 5” to 8’ 6” ceiling heights. While range is a good thing it makes the pole top heavy.  Since it is a smaller pole inside a larger pole without any padding to fill the space it has a tendency to sort of rock back and forth which makes it feel unsteady when extended.  Just to be safe I had Maverick tug on the pole once it was set up to give me his opinion as well. He agrees that it seems unsafe to use unsecured as he was able to tug it enough to make the top bar move from its placement and he is well under 200lbs.

I’m almost positive that the problem would continue even if I were to screw the top plate into a baseboard in the ceiling. It isn’t a matter of securing it but a problem of the extension pole. This issue really makes me wonder if a piece is missing. Surely Peekaboo didn’t overlook this error, yet nothing in the included assembly pamphlet proves otherwise.

The color of the pole in the pamphlet and photos shows a shiny hot metallic pink which is quite misleading. Instead the pole is a amaranth pink matte color. Had I known this I would have chosen the chrome colored pole instead. I’m completely about visual appeal.

Each kit comes with your wrongly colored pole pipes, assembly pamphlet, assembly dvd, top and floor plates, spanner wrench, and a storage bag that announces to the world through big bold text that you have a Hot Pink Dance Pole Kit inside.  Despite the big announcement the storage bag was a nice touch to easily store your disassemble pole in one place.

I was able to use it as a prop to show off a few dance moves that didn’t require grabbing onto it and swinging around.  Currently we are looking into a way to fix the issue described earlier so that we can use it for more than a mere prop. Honestly I wish this review would have been a rave as everyone should own a stripper pole for fun, but I simply cannot recommend this pole to anyone until the problem is fixed with the extension pole and you have a place to use it secured.

    I am soooo happy that you had this review up. I read the instructions, followed them, but I agree with your review of the top extender pole. I am only 82 lbs and this thing could not hold my full weight past the middle piece to save it’s life. And you can’t even get a good spin going without it falling over. I was worried that I assembled it incorrectly. but now that I’ve read your review I think I’m gonna go return it in exchange for a higher quality model. Thank you 🙂

      It’s great to hear that it was not just me who was having problems. Hopefully your next model will work out better for you.

    LOL loved the review. 🙂 My cousin has a pink pole and doesn’t trust it either. I will have a review up soon on a better pole. 😀 But there is a cool Peekaboo video on youtube that shows cool things to do without having your weight on the pole. Thanks for the review! 🙂

    I don’t own one, but I’ve always considered this pole something you’d dance WITH/AROUND and not ON. It could be a fun little thing for sexy moves but no one should be putting all of their weight on it, which is fine because not everyone wants to do a bunch of athletic moves on a pole. Sometimes it’s fun to just gyrate around it and seduce your partner. But if you want something that you can actually dance on, I’d go for the (much more expensive) Platinum Stages poles. I have their portable pole (with a nice carrying case) and it’s fabulous.

      While I understand and agree with some of the points you make, a pole that claims to hold a certain amount of weight secured and unsecured, should not move or clank against itself when little force is applied that is well under those two points. It makes it unsafe to dance with should you wish to do simple moves.
