Just to create a little controversy........

SPINNING NAKED

Have you ever?
Would you ever?
What is your opinion?

Are you innocent?

Well, now you guys definately have me thinking of spinning during the next rainstorm. Snow, sun, no problem, but I never considered the rain.

If you do decide to try to spin naked, I guess it would be best to not spin where "brainstorma" did, ha, ha, ha, or where there may be other "officials in uniform"
However did that one turn out?
ha, ha, ha

Haven't done it on fire, but I wouldn't have a problem with doing it on fire.

Both Josh and I have said we would do it as long as it would be in private.

Don't necessarily think we would do it in front of a crowd of thousands tho.

I am so totally skinny spinning as soon as I get the chance. I've wanted to for a long time now and mentioned it to my friend the other night who just started spinning three weeks ago. His response was, "I've been thinking about that since the first time I lit up!" hehehe. Apparently, we don't just spin barefoot in Kentucky.

Stop thinking of it as an ugly bulk!!!

it's not, it's your body. And hence what you make of it - you can change it, or change how you look at it... play with it like anything else (NO not like that, no spinning)

and what's more if you'd be doing this it'd be about spinning not how 'catalogue' your body looks

i'd be tempted in the woods with fire not so much for any kinda showing off but just to feel the warmth orbiting around yourself

ps. i had a bet with myself who woulda responded to this thread first when i saw it... i won

I can SEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

I don't remember who, but someone once told me "Don't be afraid to be yourself. Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."


If you want to overcome shyness about your body, the most direct route I know is to find a situation where it would be socially acceptable to be naked (when other people are, out skinnydipping, at burning man, with friends) and just give it a try. The first time you'll be very embarrassed, and then you'll notice that noone really minds much, and you'll be ok. Some people will find you attractive, some will not and will be indifferent. I've never seen anyone react to a naked person in an appropriate setting with disgust or any kind of rudeness or cruelty. I've been at swimming holes where there were hairy people over 300 lbs, people in their sixties, people with obvious ...hmm... "smallness", and others who don't fit the usual stereotypes for beauty, and didn't see anyone snicker, give them a hard time, or look uncomfortable with it. In situation where the majority are naked, the naked people look more critically at the clothed people than they do at other naked people anyway.
I've never spun naked, but I'm a newbie... I'm sure it's only a matter of time. I definitely would if the time was right.

On another subject...
Even if someone is spinning naked purely to make it more of a spectacle I don't look down on them. They're doing their thing, and I have no business telling them that it's not acceptable, or that it somehow dilutes the art (how?). On the contrary, playing with fire is such a primal thing, I can't think of a more fitting way to dress for it than not to dress at all.

For me its not a matter of being insecure about my body.

There are simply some places I don't want to get burned/singed/sooty!

I am all about an international naked fire twirling day. We would have to select a day that is warm in both hemispheres. Maybe some time in late march or late august would be best.

we eat and we drink and we smoke and we try!

Personally I verry much like spinning poi being "naked" or well, in my underwear that is.
Because the problem is that when I spin my poi and I have a sloppy t-shirt on my whirt get's caught in the swing. And I don't have to tell you what effect it may have when I'd do that with a fire poi

So, not comepletely naked, but with the least possible clothing as possible.

as a supernewbie, i would do it in a minute ...

i mean, once i learn how to spin.
i mean, once i get the balls to light the damn things on fire.
i mean, once i get good enough with fire that i won't burn my bits.

*newbie question*
i was watching a half naked boy on COL last night do wraps on his upper body with no clothing, so why would wraps below with no clothing be a huge dealio?

maybe i'm just weird, ubbloco but when i hit myself with fire it doesn't hurt, well not in a burny kind of way anyway. Obvioulsy i suffer copious amounts of pain spank becase my poi are stupidly heavy, but it never burns. cool

So naked would be just as painful, but lots of fun, i guess i'll have to try it. weavesmiley
