Posted:OK, like our lovely moderator has stated, I have been reading the same topics over and over (Sparkly Poi, glow vs. fire, colored flames, etc.) Not sure if this one has come up yet, but...has anyone ever gotten laid as a direct result of your poi/staff skills? Speaking as the typical guy, I've often heard and felt that good dance skills = good in bed. And I'm positive that there are several peeps on this board who have picked up staff/poi in order to impress a member of the opposite (or same, see I'm PC) sex. I humbly apologize if this has been covered b4, but let's hear some stories of victory...

So I guess I didn't get some based on MY poi skills, but rather from HER poi skills.She's going to be really embarrased by this I'm sure. I hope she's not angered by it. *crack* "Sorry my mistress!"

Posted:On your knees Whipping Boy!!!!Nope, not at all, you beat me to it...in fact. And it still does get my engines going, especially trailing, fire eating, breathing but I feel so anit-sexy covered in soot lines from trailing and with Kero breath, you know? That and a real good set leaves me tired ie: 4th of July Whipping Boy. I know there was a thread about getting dates from this, and if the girl says no just bonk her with the poi and drag her home, but none about sex. Should be though as this fire stuff is just damn sexy!!!!

I definitely have had more attention as a result of fire. I do, actually, disagree with the dance analogy. There are quite a few people out there who can "walk the walk" but get intimidated when the time comes. (UG, BAD PUN.) I won't kiss and tell but I have been in several conversations to the extent of "Really? Because she seems like she would be..." I think that sometimes people have hangups when it comes to true intimacy. My experience has only been with women but I've heard it works both ways.I will, however, sleep with anyone who can show me how to do a 5 beat weave. "Behind the back" and you get the whole night...

It's certainly true that twirling helps immensely in meeting people. And it's a great way to get to know someone as you instantly have something to talk about, something to share. Plus it's physical, and looks cool of course. No doubt about it, it's the pick-up tool extraordinaire!Of course, I only do it for the spiritual and health benefits.

Seriously though, it did once help me get to know someone I'd fancied for *years*. And I mean literally YEARS. Someone I'd always found too intimidatingly beautiful to really speak to. One day at a party she saw me spinning some beaming poi to music and bingo! The ice was well and truly broken! A brief but very beautiful relationship followed as a direct result of making that connection.

Posted:You have to wonder...if someone is only attracted to you because of your talent, do you really want to waste your time? Conversely, spinning definately has it's sex appeal, but that sure wears off quickly if there is nothing behind it. I guess it's a good way to open doors that might not have been opened otherwise, but I think if you are using you talent just to get laid, you are doing it for the wrong reasons. Let's not get too big for our britches OK.

Maybe not my cup of tea, but then again I'm a hopeless romantic as well. Though no one ever called me prude...

Posted:I started spinning about 1.5 years ago. In that time period, my romantic situation has improved dramatically. Coincidence?Actually, we perform (on an informal basis) semi-weekly at a local pub here, just for free beer and tips. One huge benifit is that people come up to meet us all the time. Great for the guys - we don't have to use stupid lines at the bar to meet women. Great for the girls because if some guy comes up to hit on them they don't like, she's got several fairly intimidating male friends to hide behind. And if a conversation is going nowhere, you can always duck out of it by saying your turn to spin is coming up and you have to get ready. If you are interested, you can always offer to teach them to spin. You really can't ask for a better setup.I do agree with unregistered to some degree though, in that you have to have something behind the fire and glow once it stops. People are attracted like moths to a flame, but to keep them around once the fuel burns out, you have to be charming too. Of course, they have to be charming as well if I'm going to stay interested.But giving a good performance gives people who might have been otherwise attracted, but perhaps too shy to approach you, a perfectly good excuse to introduce themselves. I've met a LOT more women as a result of spinning. I've also been approached by a lot of gay guys too - sorry, only women need apply! But I'm secure enough in my sexual preference to not be uncomfortable knowing another man is trying to hit on me, so it isn't a problem. And it usually leads to a good conversation regardless.So my answer to the original post is - HELL YES! I'm not going to give specific stories, but it totally helps with the opposite sex (or whatever sex you prefer I suppose). I've met several lovely women as a result of spinning. And regardless of whether or not we got romantic, I enjoy my friendships with all the ones I've kept in contact with - which supports PlyflHart's point in the post above. -v-

Posted:Well, I have it kind of backwards - I never got laid thanks to my twirling abilities, but I did discover twirling because I wanted to get laid. My freshman year in college I had the most massive, paralyzing, bad-poetry-inducing crush on this beautiful senior who had learned fire staff when she studied abroad in Australia. I got to know her through one of my friends, and we hung out sometimes. One night at a party she and her best friend were outside spinning, and I was absolutely dumbstruck by how magnificent/sexy she was. Later on in the night, she let me try out her staff. And that was the beginning of a beautiful friendship... with fire. The girl graduated, and I never saw her again.*sigh* [This message has been edited by alleykat (edited 24 October 2001).]

Posted:Yesm it's true. Sometimes relationships blossom from something as simple as a common interest. But there are also many times wehn people are attracted to someone they have nothing in common with. All I am saying is there is the possibility of becoming dependent on your twirling skill to meer someone and this could result in a lot of meaningless sex with a lot of meaningless faces. If that is what you are looking for, good luck. And, if not, "it takes a lot more than fancy flying."<snip>"I'd rather be hated for something I am than loved for something I'm not"<snip>PlyflHart-I'm sure there is much more to love about you than your twirling.

Posted:I would have to say that I, myself have been, in the past, turned on by sexy fire dancers. And then slept with them and then gone out with them. However.. having learnt myself now, I don't find it particularly out-of-the-ordinary-magnetizing if I see an attractive guy spinning fire. Unless he's awesome at it.. but then, I don't find it overwhelmingly appealing until I've spoken to him for quite a while before hand. Well.. I'd have to know them anyway. Perhaps in my younger and more foolish days it would have been different but some kind of wisdom has kicked in since then. So yes, I refuse to sleep with people because they are simply attracted to my fire spinning. I find amazing martial arts guys much insta-sexy than fire now... perhaps because I believe there's more skill involved in general... more maneuverability (sp?) if you know what I mean?

But I haven't really, that I can remember had anyone approach me after twirling or anything like that. I get more guys approaching me when I am just chilling out at a party or pub, then after I have twirled. I actually think they may find me more intimidating after they have seen me twirl then before. Although granted, I am nearly always spinning with Josh, so its unlikely that I get approached by guys.Well thats my 2 bobs worth

Posted:There is a huge difference between flirting, sex and love....not to mention all the gradients in between. Fire can open the door to flirting, which can lead to one of the other two, or luckily both. I don't think any relationship based solely on fire would ever work Unregistered, and I don't think it was really suggested. Personality is key in all things interpersonal.But if you are out for raw, unadulterated sex...I think glo/fire performing is a safe bet on getting it.Anyway, how about stalkers? Have any of you had stalkers because of your fire?Last faire I had one member of cast who seemed to ignore the fact that Whipping Boy was there, and I had a few guests who followed me around or propositioned me. It was eerie. Hey NYC....you mentioned the 5 beat but you never said whether or not the offer was still out there for someone to teach you btb.Maybe you and pozee can hook up, he can teach you behind your back while wrapping it up and you can experiment with staff trailing???

I haven't tried behind the back stuff yet, I'm still in my "learning wraps" phase but someday I'll get it.I do agree with you Pele, that Flirting, Sex and Love are quite different. The first one I dish for free, the later two require an in-depth, multi-tiered interview process.Send resume, references and $20 application fee to "NYC" care of HOP.
