In Maori, it would translate literally to "nga raho o te kuri" or "nga paoro o te kuri", depending on if you prefer testicles (raho) or balls (paoro).

Aluminium pole?

Apart from the relative flimsiness of aluminium for a stripper pole, you're going to get some nasty grey smudges all up their thighs. Chromed stainless steel would be the preferred medium.

"So last autumn we decided we'd repay some of that by setting up a small Sydney-based sales and editorial operation, and by delivering a measure of localisation to our readers in Australia and New Zealand."
