The Smoking Poet Policy on Featured Links


The Smoking Poet only lists links to cigar sites that do not discriminate or objectify women smokers or women in general (e.g., portraying women dressed as “your favorite flavor”), although sites that are otherwise geared to male or female smokers only are just dandy. Please send us your favorite cigar site that fits this category and we will be happy to include it.

Cigar brands TSP boycotts due to sexist marketing:
