Posted:Are pois for girls cuase every picture of poi spinners i see are girls

Ich brauche Zeit
Kein Heroin kein Alkohol kein Nikotin
Brauch keine Hilfe
Kein Koffein

Ich brauche l fr Gasolin
Explosiv wie Kerosin
Mit viel Oktan und frei von Blei
Einen Kraftstoff wie Benzin

Posted:NOT BY A LONG SHOT!

One of my favorite spinners I've ever had the pleasure of spinning with is a guy (Havocangel)- mostly because he's just fun to spin with and hang out with.

My ex-boyfriend spun, too.

I actually, as a girl, admit that I got into poi spinning because I saw a hunky guy poi spinning at some awards show during a Madonna performance. It just took finding people who actually knew what they were doing to really get a chance to play with it. Yeah, it's sad, but I was a teenage-hormone-factory at the time.

By and by, I think we've seen this thread before, and the overwhelming conclusion was POI IS FOR EVERYONE! Guys, girls, everyone! I even recall a poi spinner on here who was blind. If you can spin, you can poi!

Posted:alot of people say poi is for girls but thats only because it came from new zealand and the girls would dance with poi and the men would dance with sticks
but it is ok for men to poi, i am a maori and some of the boys teach the girls how to do long poi.
i think boys dont have the patience or the need to dance with the short poi.


are you gonna drink that?

Posted:Yes, poi is for girls. It says so in the bible and you can be arrested for doing it in some countries.



Playing with staff is FAR more manly anyway.

Posted:poi is for girls, staff is for boys.
boys who do poi are known as "poi boys"- which means they are homosexual.

What about guys who really only have poi to give to girls so they can watch?



Roll on summer. I miss all the swinging and pegging.

I was asking some native Maoris this question during a Polynesian festival here, and they said "yes, poi is only for girls".

But fire chains on the other hand... wink

beerchug Sorry. I was teasing... but I did say there were exceptions! hug

.... now, my ex, on the other hand... I wasn't teasing. Let me put it to you this way.... I should have just walked away when he told me his name was Artemis.

My brain registered this as:
1.) Greco-Roman goddess of the hunt, and patron goddess of virgins.
2.) That cat from Sailor Moon.

He often told me it was for the Roman siege weapon. Iunno. This post has opened my eyes to the truth! GIRLINESS!
