Men can do some extreme ironing, too!

Extreme Ironing  is an extreme sport and a performance art in which people take an ironing board to a remote location and iron items of clothing. It is “the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well-pressed shirt.” (Pics)


Part of the attraction and interest the media has towards extreme ironing seems to center on the issue of whether it is really a sport or not. It is widely considered to be tongue-in-cheek.

Some locations where such performances have taken place include a mountainside of a difficult climb; whle parasailing; on top of a cow; in the middle of a street; underwater; and under a waterfall. The performances have been conducted solo or by groups.
