In today’s society, tobacco has more and more influence on human beings, and the smoking circle performance, as a special cultural phenomenon, is gradually developing and growing in the society. However, the type of tobacco used in smoke ring performances is a less well known topic. In this article, I will delve into the question of what kind of smoke is used to perform smoke rings from the aspects of history, technology, culture, and the types of tobacco used in smoke rings.
First, the history of the smoke ring performance
The history of smoking rings dates back to ancient times, but it really took off in the United States in the early 20th century. At that time, since tobacco was an integral part of social situations, some people began to learn how to perform smoke rings by smoking. Gradually, smoking rings became a cultural phenomenon among smokers. In many movies, you can see the style of the smoke ring performance, such as the 1930’s musical film “Show Queen” there is a smoke ring scene.
As time went on, the smoke ring performance gradually moved out of the United States and began to become popular in other regions such as Europe. Some professional smoke ring performers have also established organizations such as the Association of Smoke Ring Performers to promote the development of this cultural phenomenon. In China and other East Asian countries, especially in Taiwan, the smoke circle performance is gradually gradually favored by young people.
Second, the technology of smoke ring performance
To perform a smoke ring, you first need to take a puff of smoke and draw the smoke into your mouth. Then, first use the tongue to accumulate the smoke in the mouth, and then push the tongue out of the lips, making a “chug” sound at the same time, blow a circle of smoke with the mouth. At this time, the smoke will form a circle of gas, that is, the so-called smoke ring.
Of course, the smoke ring performance is not only a smoke circle, but also a lot of different shapes of smoke rings can be performed, such as hearts, portraits, etc., and even several smoke rings can be stacked together. However, performing these fancy smoke rings requires a higher level of technical difficulty.
Third, the culture of smoking circle performance
As a cultural phenomenon, smoking rings are no longer seen as a part of smoking behavior, but as an artistic performance. In the eyes of the smoke ring performers, this is a form of performance that can show skills and is rich in creativity.
In some venues, the smoke ring performance has also become a unique art exhibition. For example, smoke ring performers can perform in some exhibition venues to showcase their technical and creative achievements. Some award ceremonies will also arrange a smoke ring performance to increase the entertainment of the dinner.
Fourth, the types of tobacco used in the smoke ring performance
Like other forms of smoking, smoking rings require the use of tobacco to produce smoke. But the effects of smoke produced by different brands of tobacco are also different.
As a kind of tobacco specially used for smoke ring performance, it needs to have the following characteristics: first, the amount of smoke is large enough; Second, the smoke density is not high; Three, clear smoke. At present, the tobacco brands commonly used for smoking ring performances on the market are Camel, Marlboro, and some professional brands, such as Dunhill, Davidoff, and so on.
However, it should be noted that the impact of smoking behavior on health cannot be ignored. Performing smoke rings for entertainment is acceptable, but smoking in public places is not encouraged or advocated by formal institutions or individuals.
In the field of smoke ring performance, the choice of tobacco is particularly important. For performers, choosing a brand of tobacco that is specially used for smoking rings can make their performances even better. But ensuring the hygiene of places and urging people to protect themselves from the dangers of smokers is an essential responsibility. The development and promotion of smoke ring performance need to adhere to the principles of health and civilization to ensure a good development environment.
