Sexpo Pole Dancer Sues For Broken Nose

by | 2nd, March 2009

A POLE dancer at Brisbane’s Sexpo claims she slipped and broke her nose in an erotic routine.

New Zealander Lisa Lewis is a self-titled “international star, exotic dancer and soft porn star”.

You may have seen her work, notably at the Brisbane Convention Centre and Sexpo Revue Lounge for the performing arts. Says she:

“I have video footage of a performance where their pole was dodgy and they insisted I use it on my second show (which) resulted in me breaking my nose. I started pole dancing 10 years ago at aged 17 and have never injured myself like this.”

Lewis also claims she was removed from the event on Saturday – a day before schedule – because her routine was “too risque”.

She continues:

“(But) I kept my G-string on and feel I was classy throughout.”

Says Sexpo general manager Rob Godwin:

“There is nothing wrong with the pole. We have held the Australian pole-dancing championship heats on that pole for the past four days. There hasn’t been a single problem with it.”

Australia is a reach-out community. When the drought/flood comes, swimming may no longer be the Olympic sport of choice for young Ozzies. So what of the rules?

Says Godwin:

“She was wearing a G-string but she was putting her hands in her underpants. That behaviour breaches our licensing laws. And she had already received a warning. She was asked to leave on her second warning.”

Unless the pole was entangled in her gusset, this sounds like one-handed pole-dancing, and not just euphemistically?

To be upbraided for such darting calls to mind the other great pioneers of sport – the darts player who supped mineral water; the snooker player who didn’t smokes; the athlete not on drugs (yet to be confirmed).

Old Mr Anorak is already in line to be the GB judge when the sport gets its Olympic approval.
