Angel Ardito, a rising TikTok creator and pole dancing instructor under the username @thelousypoledancer, is no stranger to the trend. Her video series on “bedroom speak” has amassed millions of views and for good reason — Ardito happily engages with her 527,000+ followers by responding to countless requests for dirty talk tips and ideas.

As the daughter of the King of Pop, Paris Jackson embraced her platform more in recent years and used it to become an outspoken advocate for the environment (she encouraged the crowd at the 2017 Grammy Awards to join the Dakota Access Pipeline protests), anti-racism, and cruelty-free brands (she’s starred in campaigns for Stella McCartney, a designer who’s notably reimagined leather-free luxury).
