Posted:I know someone who does double bounce wraps on his forearms (that is, both poi wrap all the way around his pressed-together wrists, bounce, and reverse)...last week he wore kevlar gloves for that part of his routine.

As for Fryed Fish, I bet once you see him lying there weeping (presumably naked and face down) you'll take pity!

Posted:Yes i do that wrap too...without gloves...just a long sleeved shirt

Fryed Fish is also of the sissy species...he wears gloves and cries alot when he gets burned.

Posted:He does it a LOT. And he doesn't wear long sleeves (or the gloves when he's doing his other routine). It's a question of "do I want to keep my arm hair?" :-)

OK, by 'sissy' I meant I'm gay. Not that I'm a wuss (I'm not). Kind of joking about you and Fryed, especially after you were talking about withholding rimjobs.

Posted:Everyone learning poi experiences pain, lots of pain (never underestimate the power of a tennis ball), but it's possibly a good thing - learning moves is part done by repetition and part by learning not to hurt yourself, it's like an extra incentive. If you can't do fire without pain, then you shouldn't be doing fire yet/in your current state/or at least those moves with fire.

There is certainally a point where dare-devilness meets stupidity/irresponsibleness. Personally I like to spin without anything like this, provided I'm in clothes made of cotton and i'm relatively sober. Provided you ddo enough practice and follow these simple guidelines you should be ok. Oh, and kevlar on chains hurts way less than tennis balls on string.

Posted:sounds like you lot had it easy tennis balls indeed I didnt discover the joys of tennis ball till about a month into my poi learning curve before then I was using a pair of fairly large juggling balls threaded with tent guy rope. After 2 spins they started to rip so I re enforced them with elastoplast Ergo two Bloody hard balls of concrete and of course as a newbi I span fast cos it was cool (STUPID) I couldnt even look at my poi without feeling the pain it actually turned one of my balls black for about 3 weeks after that I shoved my bits in a large steel ash tray. Till I got better. Now I seem to have developed a sideways spinning style so for me I do the weave to the left or right not forward or backwards.

before i met those lot i thought they'd be a bunch of dreadlocked hippies that smoked, set things on fire ,and drank a lot of tea but then when i met them....oh wait (PyroWill)

Posted:I agree that there's benefit to spinning something that hurts when you do something you shouldn't. I draw the line at my naughty bits, that's all.

Posted:When I first got poi, I was completely obsessed with them and couldn't stop practising. My mate who went with me to get them was also interested, but took a silver bullet for me... about the third time he had a go, BOTH tennis balls went into his groin- double trouble in the worst possible way, the first real pain caused by my poi. He was doubled up for ten minutes, I was much more wary... still caught myself a few times after when learning the basics, but rarely any more. Tend not to scream when it does happen, just try to breathe and go very quiet (can't speak due to that 'winded' feeling). But it never stops me from wanting another go, just makes me want to learn better so it don't happen again

Like sex, I'm much more interesting in real life than online.

Posted:Hmm. Maybe a Cricket Box =/= Sports Cup after all...I haven't noticed that it limits movement of anything other than the Naughty Bits themselves. The supporter that holds it in place is mildly annoying, but chiefly because I prefer to go commando when dressed cazh.

Posted:Well i now have 2 male spinning friends and one wears protection all the time the other doesn't at all, well the moral of this story is the one that wears it is fine when he whacks himself and the other generally ends up on the floor crying like a girl! amusement for me but then i do have a warped sence of humor sometimes!
