How Safe Is Pole Dancing?

I recently saw the umpteenth article about the pole dancing craze and noticed the subject of the story was photographed upside down on the pole.

After seeing the photo of the North Carolina dance studio owner, I thought to myself, "That really looks kind of dangerous." About two clicks later on my story search, I found another pole dancing story about a woman in the UK who was paralyzed after a pole dancing accident. The story also examined some of the safety issues with pole dancing. Some of our friends at Crunch were interviewed.

What do you think? Is pole dancing a safe workout for clubs and their members?
