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)

Actually, according to my theory of "more bark = less bite", those who spin sexy sometimes aren't the best in bed... That would mean that London is one of the worst places in the world to go for quality nookie.

Maybe that's why I'm having so much fun in New York City!

Though I will say my theory is by no means 100% true. Obviously there are some quality spinners out there who can knock quality boots. Just maybe not in London.

{Then again, I've never bumped uglies in London... but there's always NEXT summer to prove me wrong. }

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

My gf cant spin poi at all but she does give me 1st class nookie, also - theres a girl who can spin better than i can speak, but i wouldn't touch her with a 10ft pole!

I dunno what this means in the skeem of things but i remember once a group of dancers used poi in a 'tap routine' they were on long chains and hit the floor. Any way my point was the girls there were FAF! if only i looked that good lol.

Whats sexier? Glo stick or Fire

I met a guy doing that right before the halloween parade last night! He used ropes with balls tied to the ends and christmas lights taped on the whole length of the rope, battery packs on watchbands at his wrists. He said it was some sort of traditional folk dance. I told him about HoP, so hopefully he'll show up and tell us more.

E pluribus unum, baby.

This is in reply to the earlier discussion prompted by fire dancing fairy.

I definately know what it's like to be objectified due to my fire. I don't like it; I get it enough already. It angers me that people cannot just observe my performances (not just fire) as an art, and appreciate it for what it is.
I guess it's comparable to musicians who after a set are constantly being hit on and being bought drinks. Some people like that attention, but I (along with most of my friends) do not. How are you supposed to know if you're being genuinely admired or simply being seen as a novelty?

Personally, I'm disheartened to see that Dancing Fire Fairy's words were not taken closer to heart. The immediate response of people seemed to be to defend the objectification. I don't want to criticize anyone (necessarily), but I feel like maybe the original message could be given a second look in order to acknowledge the experiences (good and bad) of fellow fire performers.

All the best to all of you beautiful performers out there. May you receive respect from all of your future audiences.

As a fire spinner you're putting your body on display, and in a manner which most people find quite sensual. If you didn't want people to be looking at you you wouldn't be performing, and it's just part of performance art that your audience is going react according to its level. If the people watching don't "get" what you're doing and simply appreciate the sensuality of it, that's fine, that's where they're at - maybe you feel like you're playing mozart to metal-heads but rather than rail against something over which you have no control, why not just acknowledge that fire twirling can be an arousing medium, be aware of the effect it might have on some audiences and if you feel uncomfortable with that effect, avoid them.

people prefer staff and poi to juggling and unicycles because it is dance and because dance does have a sexual element to it not all the time not sometimes either

Unless they love taking drugs, that can be pretty horrible to observe

NYC - I see your point, and upon reviewing what I said, I came to the conclusion; it's true for some people (luckily enough I know them)

do you think being uncomfortable with someone's (sexual) appreciation of you denotes a certain discomfort with yourself? it's usually when you don't feel so good about yourself that you aren't great at taking complements. or is the discomfort something else?

trust me, i know plenty of girls who love to perve on a hot fire spinner with his shirt off. its not just a guy thing!

ultimately, by the act of fire spinning you are putting yourself on public display. you may not enjoy the attention, but by doing an activity so different, hypnotic, and dangerous looking, you are going to attract attention. if you cant handle that, stay at home and watch TV.

I have to agree with Zwit somewhat here.

When someone performs there are varied reactions in the audience: "wow, that looks hard", "she is pretty", "the fire is beautiful", "her dancing is superb", "she is hot!", "i could do that.". Every audience member creates their individual reaction to the performance based on who they are and what is important to them in the split second they happen to be forming their opinion of you.

Not everyone who thinks "she is hot!" is a chauvenist pig. And just because someone appreciated your dance or skill doesn't mean they wouldn't be the one to knock you around the room if you were in a relationship with them.

You CANNOT stop people from judging you as a sexual being at ANYTIME, let alone when you are wearing tight clothes and weilding such an elemental force. We are sexual creatures and that is NOT a portion of humanity that needs to be suppressed any more.

People should be judged by their actions. If they want to bed you on dancing ability alone and don't want to bother finding out more about you first ... then you call them a star****er and recognise them for the shallow idiot they are. If they admit to themselves they find you sexually attractive and then treat you with the respect you deserve ... where is the foul?

Hehehehe - Yup Member 4867 apparently, but I think we're up to 6000+

Hmmmmm, not taking any offence that my party vid was the only one I wasn't spinning in and therefore gets rated the "sexy one" - , but I did get Dom in it so that more than makes up for it - (Oh and gratuitous shots of me topless, most of the London poi godesseses, Alienfox with his boobs out and lots of Dark Fairy Queen shaking her ass - )
