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...

Posted:i'm in on the backwards thing.. sort of...

*tiptoes aroudn and looks for boys listening to said story* coast clear.

ok, well, i was at this party. and this guy was really cute. really really cute. i don't hit on guys at parties taht often. but he was cute. and then, i was told to come outside and see "firedancing" I was very confused... it was soooo cool.... and it's the cute guy who's doing it.... so, i figure, topic of conversation, right? so i went up and talked to him afterwards but i was feeling sort of unworthy at that point, plus i figured a million girls have prolly done this, and now it look slike i just went "ooh, you spin fire" and well i was totally impressed but still. anyhow, shortly thereafter i saw a *cuter* (well, meybe not, but more my type y'know) guy and i thought to myself, self, if you get shy now and don't talk to this guy ur going to be very unhappy. and he was less intimidating cause he hadn't just been playing with fire...
i later foudn out that he spins too, but that's not relevant, or maybe it is, cause i never would have discovered this otherwise... why am i babling like this?
and just about flirting too really. 'tis fun though.

Posted:Speaking as an expert heterosexual male I will say that there are few things quite as sexy as a woman who can spin fire. Go figure; some guys are into bikes and babes, but I think my preference is a bit classier.

Anyways, I have been told by a number of women that they view men who spin fire in the same way.

Peace.

Posted:Darlings, I get laid for who I am, the fire's just the afterglow.

(Don't know if that makes sense, but it sounded good in my head.)

Seriously though, I think playing with fire is not only sexy in and of itself, but also adds sex appeal to a person because it helps them to exude the ultimate aphrodisiac - confidence. And I dont mean that haughty, nose in the air, b.s. confidence. Its that "I'm doing something I really love and looking damn good at it" confidence and THAT is the sexiest thing a person can wear. period.
(I spend a lot of time wearing nothing but my confidence, in fact)

seriously, though, i KNOW i COULD get laid with the skills, certinly i've had the chance, but i've never tried... i was with a girl for like 7 years, almost as long as i've been doing this, and i'm one of those monogamous types...course now that i'm single we'll just have to see... i'm even doing a porno party gig 2nite! just in time, my hand is cramping up! and any fiery chicks out there are certainly welcome to email me some pics and a resume! looking for a sexmaniac fire dancer who is a self disciplined, has big eyes, likes athletic/skinny dreadhead elvin princes, smokes non cigarretes, and did i mention sexmaniac?

Posted:I think poi has definitely helped me meet alot of ppl and i have been approached by men and women!
But since i have a g/f i always have that line of escape but its good to talk to ppl and make new friends!
Also its a great way to meet other ppl who do poi or other circus entertaining!
I definitely think poi has had a very great impression on my life becoz b4 i would stand out a little 4 just being a crazy sorta guy but now i stand out a hell lot more coz of my big red balls!!!

I LOVE POI!!!

Posted:Being female, I can quite easily say that fire and watching someone play with it and control it is very overwhelming.

I think it's a massive turn on watching a man play with fire, especially dancing with it. It kind of conveys a sense of......erm........ many things..... power, control, large sense of play, sensitivity; portrays someone willing to take risks,someone in control of themselves......... loads loads more things. It's the feeling it creates, the person spinning holds an atmosphere that leaves you hanging on every breath, you kind of hang in time. It's also to do a lot with the colours and the sound.........and I think I'm saying FAR too much now.....

It's a major attraction.

i havent slept with anyone as a result of fire stuff, but went out last wednesday for first time in awhile without boyf to this big crazy clubt hing. Got totally mullered and ended up talking to this guy who thought the whole fire thing was amazing and "would i play with his staff?" (insert foul phallic related jokes here). Kept on saying he'd like to see me sweaty and covered in fuel. I think he was abit odd...

my boyf thinks i look sexy when i spin, but i think the same of him so hey...

Posted:Well i don't know about getting laid as a result of fire twirling as i haven't got up the courage to try with fire yet, but i can say that on a lovely sunny day recently me n my boyf went to the park so i could teach him a few moves (with poi I add... altho a few moves in open spaces like parks are also fun ) He was havin great fun swinging them as fast as he could going "look at me!!" before he smacked himself in the nads shouted "fuck" and dropped to the floor where he lay for a full 10 minutes in agony, in the middle of a field full of families eating icecreams. Put a stop to any chance of a shag until the swelling went down poor baby... and poor me hehe

Posted:one of the things that made my gf get more interested at me was watching me playing with my pois... of course it was also the walking on glass thing, but she really liked the poi and is taking it up now(daaaamn sexy)... she told me she nearly went mad when i was teaching her how to do some moves (you know, standing behind her, moving her arms... ). so i think poi(practice, fire, glowsticks, anything really) adds a great deal to your sex appeal (oooh, a rhyme!) but it's also true you need to have something behind it or this interest will burn away faster then the kero on your wicks...
that's my story....

Posted:no but since this started...I have!

And a dog collar necklace, a few marriage proposals, offers for dates (in front of PWB..that always got me chuckling), etc...

I am such a flirt too...I love it.

Here is a question for ya'all... I was once told that because single people are more attractive to watch because it feeds into a fantasy, are you "temporarily single" for the sake of performing, even if you are taken?

I also have to say this. A month or so ago I taught a fire eating workshop. In it was an average looking guy. Nothing that would stand out in a crowd or make you stop dead in your tracks. Nice as the day is long and a real delight to be around. Anyway...there was something about when he was practicing eating fire... My friend who came along actually stopped the class to tell him how sexy he looked. It was really unbelievable...this really average joe became totally hot when fire eating. As soon as he was done, he went back to being big brother and not even a concideration for a notch in the headboard. It was really incredible, and nothing I thought would ever actually happen. I mean, I never thought fire had that strong of an impact.
Anyway...there you have it! Strange neh?

Posted:Poi is very, very sexy. Especially with fire.

I don't know if its because the performer oozes self control and consentration, or because you can tell how passionate they are about their performance, or just cos its fire fire fire....

Anyway, I'm not very good yet so noone's really seen me perform except my sister so obviously no pullage to speak of.

The chik who first introduced me to poi looked hot hot hot when she showed me how though...

I think it creates the time old mentality of "teenage virgin boy" and "hot older woman"...

Posted:WOW this my friends is a very old thread and to me personnaly a very very moving one for some lovely memories, those who know me can appreciate

anyway ... me and Glass have built this theory indeed about the correlation of spinning style and sensuality. not how technically skilled you are but teh way you move, treat the poi etc ... it is a theory with no losers just different styles and feelings ...

I can be someone s AAAAA, another person , s B + (Nomad where are you ) and somebody s Z ----
there is no perfect spinner nor is there a perfect lover, but I do think that precisely for taht reason we might find affinities between what we appreciate in a wa a person dances with fire and and the way they hold you in their arms ....
