Projects I Love: X-Purr is live on Kickstarter!

While we will never be able to explain the reason why pole-dancers love cats so much, we can nonetheless count on our fuzzy buddies to be right there next to us when we’re practicing at home.

I mean, check out this photo. My cat’s a pro already.

Kitty has her own set of pole tricks. ūüôā Meow. #polecat #lolcat #poledancer #polelife

But look at the sisal post in this photo. It’s worn, its boring, and look how my cat stares at my X-Pole with envy.

Well, envy no more fuzzy one! Thanks to the International Pole Dancing star and fellow Cat Mama,¬†Natasha Wang, she has brought ¬†cat enthusiasts everywhere the X-PURR!¬†Now your fuzzy friend will be able to shake his tail on this quality “fitness pole” for cats!

X-Purr X-Pole Natasha Wang Cat Scratcher

Let’s get into the details. Each¬†X-Purr is 2 feet long and comes topped with a catnip filled “disco ball.” The base of the post emulates the¬†X-Stage design and also has the X-Purr logo stamped around the edge. The result is a classy looking product that both you and your cats will enjoy. And it will look oh-so-perfect in your pole room or studio. ūüėČ

Also available through the Kickstarter campaign is a bottle of catnip spray disguised as a bottle of “pole cleaner.” Like us pole-dancers, we spray our poles with cleaner to get it ready before a dance. Your kitty can have this catnip sprayed on their¬†X-Purr¬† to entice them to get up and move.

The X-Purr Stage Pole fulfills cat-owners’ dreams of seeing their feline ‘work the pole’ while addressing a cat’s natural instincts.

Pledges for the X-Purr start at $50 for early bird backers and $60 for regular. You can also grab the catnip spray alone for $12. But hurry soon! Quantities are limited. Pledge now!

About X-Purr creators: Natasha & Arloa

naprofile

X-Purr is founded by pole fitness celebrities Natasha Wang (2013 International Pole Champion, 2012 Pole Art Runner-Up, 2011 US Pole Dance Champion) and Arloa Reston (2016 North American Pole Dance International Grand Masters Champion, 2014 Pacific Pole Championship Masters Entertainment Champion). Natasha and Arloa are veterans of the pole fitness industry, with over 20 years combined experience teaching, performing and competing in the U.S. and throughout the world. They met through pole, but bonded over a shared love of cats, and developed the idea for X-Purr after attending CatCon 2016 in Los Angeles. It was there they realized there wasn’t a product that merged the unique worlds of POLE and CATS.

REVIEW: Unbound Subscription Box – Double Entendre

unbound-box-double-entendre-review-unboxing-9

For me, my sexuality and my relationship with pole dancing go hand-in hand. It’s important for me to be in touch with my inner “White Tigress”¬†both in the bedroom and in the dance studio. (Must be because I’m a Scorpio.) -_^

So, one day while I was browsing randomly online for subscription boxes, I went looking for something a bit more unique than the usual nerdy toy-and-shirt fare or random foodie boxes. I wanted something a little more exciting.

Enter the Unbound Box.

RECAP – 3rd Annual Comic Con Pole Jam with Fun Pole Fitness and Pole Dancing Adventures

fun-pole-fitness-2016-comic-con-2
We just had¬†another incredible¬†event¬†at the 3rd Annual Comic Con Pole Jam that I co-hosted with amazing studio owner, Marie Davidson and instructor extraordinaire, Nadine Young. Thank you to these awesome ladies from¬†Fun Pole Fitness for hosting this event with me again this¬†year. I’m always looking forward to it!

This year our attendees BROUGHT IT with their cosplay! I loved spending my night swinging, laughing and having a great time with heroes and villains alike. -_^ Together, we raised $400 for the Hillcrest Youth Center. It is the only drop-in and recreational center in San Diego County dedicated to the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and HIV+ (LGBTQ+) youth.

HYC is committed to providing a safe, affirming space for LGBTQ+ youth to be proud of who they are and the freedom to discover who they might become. We host approximately 300 visits from youth each month. They are 80% youth of color — Latino, African-American, Asian and Pacific Islanders, Native American — and 20% Anglo-American. They are youth from all over the county, representing almost every zip code. Some come from our most affluent homes, some are homeless. More than 70% are low-income and underserved.

In light of what recently occurred during the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting, we wanted to help our LGBTQ community. Please remember it’s never too late to give back to communities in need — look into your local youth center or consider donating to Hillcrest as well!

Thank you everyone for letting your inner hero/villain shine that night and for making the Annual Comic Con Pole Jam another success! I hope to see you all again next year.
