There is officially a movement to make pole dancing an actual Olympic sport! Yes, you read that right. No, you're not dreaming. Women could win gold medals by swinging and sliding down a pole, just like they do at your local "gentleman's club." Cue round of applause.

The International Pole Sports Federation (it’s a real thing) recently submitted an application to the International Olympic Committee to make pole dancing recognized as an actual sport. I mean, if throwing heavy metal discs is an Olympic sport, why shouldn’t sliding down a pole be one?

Now that you’ve heard the good news, let’s watch some pole-dancing GIFs and appreciate this sexy sport.
