Does anyone else find that watching someone of the opposite sex twirling poi (very well) and dancing incredibly erotic?

Being male i can confirm that even my friends who don't spin usually have a open jaw when a female spins!

But, i've found that most of my female friends find watching a man twirl a staff more erotic! (so natually i have just started to learn staff)

Any thoughts (apart from that)

I think that you should have a bit more respect to the art of fire dancing. I wouldn't feel as comfortable spinning fire if I knew perverted men were oggling at me. It should be something EGO FREE where you can fly on the wings of freedom and not use it as a lusty tool for sexual attraction. I am outraged, and I think that secret sexual fantasies such as that should be kept to the individual and their romantic partner... cos I know now I am going to be alot more concious of how others are interperating my dancing. I am shocked to think that people that are in the fire scene would be disrespecting the element of fire to such a drastic extent.

My knees have always turned to jelly when I watch some boys spin staff/double staff (staff struck some might say)

I did some poi gazing at Dom, Cole and Rob the other day though ohhh I love my life.

I know that when me and Mr5 got together - he'd seen loads of people fire dance, as he put it, as he lives in Brighton and all.. - I got the impression that he thought it all a little erm gay (stupid and naff for want of better words) so I was a little nervous about spinning in front of him for the first time.. needless to say when I had finished I came back to where he was standing.. I didn't really know him that well back then - but now I know what that look in his eye meant.. tee hee hee.. shame we were camping in the middle of a field - I have a feeling that I wouldn't have had too much sleep that night if we were somewhere else

of course nowadays I'm a good 'wife' and don't perve over staffers AT ALL!!

Hey Fire Dancing Fairy, take it easy.

I get hit on by guys all the time after I spin in public - and I'm a guy (a heterosexual one at that). If it doesn't bother me (even when they scare off the female admirers), or make me self concious when I spin, I don't think it should bother you so much either. Just relax. It' not like you have to participate in their fantasies or anything. There is nothing wrong with people finding the way you move appealing. Go with it, not against it. It doesn't disrespect the fire for people to find the way you manipulate it to be enthralling.

For my part, I love watching women spin. It brings out their inherent grace of form, which I find very appealing. There is nothing perverted in that. It's all very natural and captivating, just like the flames. The two together are shear joy to behold.

Poi done well is god damn sexy. Im lucky to know some really good poi-ers. So yeah when I watch the likes of Dom, Bluecat, Glass, Cole, Moohaahaa etc poi their ass off it really is quite easy on the eye *sigh* I hope yall dont mind us watching ya like that?

But for me, I love it even more when youre watching someone and they dont realise theyre being watched cos theyre so wrapped up in what theyre doing especially when they have a cheeky little grin on their face cos they love it so much.

eer I think Ive said too much!

Live well, love much, laugh often...

ooh.... dummies at dawn! I think Fire Dancing Fairy needs a Fairy Chill Pill.

Does this mean (Fire Dancing Fairy) you haven't looked at anyone, ever, doing anything at all, and thought that it was/looked sexy? And what the hell does it have to do with EGO? I just hope nobody hits on you when you're 'enjoying the beautiful art of drinking a beer or standing inline in the shop' or you'll never pull!!

I'm with VANIZE, you get hit on when your spinning (by ladeez and gents) and it's no problem. In fact what could be more flattering....they feel watching you spin is so beautiful they instantly get a little crush on you How sweet!!

I like watching others spin... the way they move and dance - but with some guys it does just look special, in the same way it can with a good dancer of the non-flaming variety

flexibility, skill and ease of movement innit

I can SEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

I just realised when I first fell in love with poi....it was watching a group of spinners at Glastonbury this year near the Stone Circle quite late in the evening. There was one girl who could wiggle and dance and strut and turn so well I was completely encapsulated!! She outshone her friends (not to put them down...but) and even my girlf thought she was wonderful.

The very next day I bought my first Poi and never looked back.....thanks mostly to the mystery lady with the wiggle that I never got to say hi too...I wonder who she is??

ah, sweet sweet memories

Yeah... I can see where you're comming from. But you never know what some people are thinknig, and I guess I've had some experiences in my past that have conditioned me to be concious of men watching me. I don't want to upset anyone... I just want to make people happy. But some people out there just take things too far and can be really creepy. I guess if I posted on this thread a year or so ago I would have happily agreed with the majority of you... but caution is important to me at this stage in my life.

I love dancing... I love moving my body and expressing myself through the beautiful blessing of the female form... I just guess self respect and respect from other people is something I'm contemplating alot about in my life at the moment.

well, I am truely sory to hear that you ran into a situation that makes you sensitive to situations like that. But please try not to hold that against 50% of the population. Most guys really are good eggs, even if we do have to wipe the drool off our chins when lovelies such as you take the stage.

Well my memory is a little hazy (ahem) but I think she was short for a girl, (maybe 5'2" or so)and I think curly hair. Had quite a nice butt and a lovely little wiggle in her hips and was probably the only person really 'dancing' with her poi.
There was a group, I remember a tall thin guy who was also pretty good but you have to understand I can recall very little this long after Glasto.

We also saw the same group near the big trees at the top during the afternoon (maybe Sunday?) and thoroughly enjoyed watching/learning.

Does that ring any bells?

I agree that watching someone of the attracting sex spin is sexy. However, I think it's just an extension of the fact that watching someone attractive do something they love, and do it well, is always sexy - no matter what it is that they do.

I don't think it's an ogling thing, i think it's a beautiful thing, that you can admire someone's dancing and find it sexy - it's just another way of appreciating ourselves and celebrating our bodies!

I had a dream that my friend had a
strong-bad pop up book,
it was the book of my dreams.

but then what is the difference between an ogle and an admire?
if someone admires you and thinks you are beutiful while you do your hobby then that should surely be ok.
i guess ugly people ogle but nice people admire.
i dont think about it just go dance who cares whos watching.

my original signature was tooo long.

I believe that some people are forgetting that erotic does not mean perverted.
Look at it like this:
An erotic painting is something different than a beaver-shot(to put it bluntly).
And a woman doing poi can be pretty amazing.
She can twist her body around the fire, do incredible things with two fireballs on a chain.

THe movement makes you feel warm, she captures you in a trance of fire and beautifull sea-like movements. It all just fits together.
At that moment you realise, woman are devine, fire is divine.... *mumbles away*

But!!!!!
That does not mean that the man who gets fascinated oogles at you!
He thinks you are beutifull without a perverted side thought.
Not all men are beasts you know
Like not all love is sex, remember that.

fire dancing fairy - Don't assume that just because a guy looks at you and sees you as erotic means that he doesn't respect you and what you're doing. Humans are sexual creatures, and I am thankful for that.

Watching other people dancing and spinning makes me happy, and some people out there are sexy as hell when spinning (right back at ya Bam & Hels!). Although I truly think that I enjoy watching girls spin more than a lot of guys because girls dance and have more of a defined style, and that's what I appreciate most.

I could be wrong about the height thing, I am 6'4" so everyone seems a bit small! But I spent most of my time sitting on my bottom rather intoxicated so she could have been 7 foot tall for all I know! Her hair was dark so could have been red I guess but it all looks the same in my hazy rose tinted memories!!

Were you spinning fire by night or non-fire by day?

I hope she does read this, I'd like to meet her to say thanks and show my appreciation. I've even started to dance while I spin now too

I love watching people spin, guys and girls! Its so nice to just sit there and watch people manipulate fire. I love it when people watch me, whatever theyre thinking doesnt matter, im creating a reaction in someone and thats all that counts in my opinion. To have someone go away from a performance with that memory is the best feeling.

Fire Dancing Fairy - You must look at guys and think 'wow hes gorgeous' or if theyre spinning, 'wow hes sexy', everyone does! Does that mean you are perverted? Or is it just guys who are?
Not really very fair...

Aim high and you'll know your limits, aim low and you'll never know how high you could have climbed.

Ahh yes, there was this one young woman. She was increadible to begin with... even in baggy cammies she looked hot(I have only seen three women in my 3+ years in the Corps that looked good in cammies). Then I saw her spin and I just about fell over! She had a perfect body, her eyes reflected the flames like mirrors. I dunno I think women look hot especially when illuminated by firelight.
