Here is the completed build of my Peekaboo Pole Dancing Plasma Mount. Combining two of man's favorite things, huge TV's and Strippers. Over all this turned out really great, and does almost exactly what I wanted, with the possible exception that I don't get to set the height to just any level, because the pole is too smooth. Nothing a screw hole won't fix, but I was trying to not ruin the pole. This is an easy and affordable alternative to expensive TV mounts with more options for placement.

Step 1: Put the Pole Up
First put the stripper pole together. Which I have another video/instructable for. It's pretty easy.
Step 2: Attach the Mount to the Pole
So attached to the pole is the tv mount which allows for adjustable placement of the tv. The mount is rated for more than the tv weighs and the pole is rated for up to 250 lbs.So everything was within the weight limits. I used poplar wood to extend the mount to fit my tv. This tv mount is supposed to be for concrete walls but I've modified it with U-Bolts so that it will attach to the pole.
There are seams on the pole so that limits how far high or low you can move the tv.
Step 3: Lift the TV in to Place
You likely want to use a friend. TVs are heavy. Lift the TV in to place.
