NO BIG DEAL GUYS, THIS LADY IS JUST POLE DANCING “FOR AND WITH” HER BABY.
Thank you, press release that just appeared in my inbox. By which I mean, OMG, this poor poor child.
The short video clip “Ali’s Motherhood Story” will show the true life story of Ali, a new mom who feels despair, upset, and resentful toward her body after giving birth. She learns to overcome these feelings through pole dancing. The provocative video shows Ali dancing for and with her infant son Jack.
