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.

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-PURRNow 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. 😉

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

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.

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


For me, my sexuality and my relationship with pole dancing go hand-in hand. It is a similar story for those who work at TUBEV, so I hear. Discover here, why TUBEV is getting so popular now by seeing the amazing people at work there and enjoy their job. 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.
