From Ryan Gallagher's Camera Toss Blog:
Use "timer function" or longish exposure setting.
Depress the shutter button (timing depends on your technique).
Throw your camera into the air during or just before it exposes.
Catch camera (optional).
More from the Flickr pool.
…This is a variation on a technique that’s great for shooting people dancing, especially entertainers who are “pole dancers”. You set for a long exposure, click the shutter while the dancers move for about a half a second, then swiftly angle and jiggle the camera upwards to the blinking disco lights above them. It takes a little practice, but you can produce some really interesting random effects without having to frack with Photoshop masks & layers.
O_M: I’m sure our readers would appreciate a link to any pole dancing examples. 😉
Steven, you have a nasty opinion of your readers
…Garr, you assume that everyone on Boing Boing is an unenlightened prude. Shame on you.
Sounds suspiciously like it was invented by the companies waiting at the ready with new cameras to replace the ones you break doing this.
Better yet, O_M, where do you find a place with pole dancers that allows photography?

…Easy. Just get yourself a job running the website for a GC, and then don’t do any shots nuder than a string bikini. After all, you don’t want to give away the goods for free 😛
