Posted:teejay, do you know how Fire Eaters do all that stuff without burning their mouths?
They don't.
it's not an activity i'd recommend...
but if you still really really want to do it then http://www.butterfingers.co.uk
do a fireeating book to tell you how to do it relatively safely.

'Twirling' is too camp a word for me. i don't really like 'Spinning' either.

i've seen 'Swinging' used a bit, but that can lead to embarassing misunderstandings...

They all seem quite reductive. 'Object Manipulation' is better, but is a bit of a mouthful.

Generally, i say that i do Stick and Swingy Balls.

or just claim to be a juggler. Not strictly accurate, but people understand and it gets the whole thing out of the way.

id go with pyrophilia.. that sounds sophisticated (ooooohh, big word biggrin)

fwirlage is a nice word, but it leans more to twirling than spinning.. what about spwirnage??
yea, thats more like it.
