A generally amiable but hopelessly nerdy person-- not necessarily possessing an actual ponytail or even long hair-- who is usually immersed in a combination of science fiction and fantasy literature (and their derivatives), roleplaying games (often in their live action varieties), the gothic-industrial subculture, and/or the historical reenactment of pre-industrial periods of European history (often at what are called "Renaissance fairs")-- among other influences-- to or nearly to the point of lifestyle.
A straight ponytail is grasped near the base in a male's fist, medium grip. This allows nice control of the female's head, but is limiting due to awkward bending of the male's wrist. It is a carpal tunnel syndrome hazard for men who receive a high volume of blowjobs. The height of the ponytail on the back of the woman's head can be adjusted for better torque.
Another type of ponytail is the balled ponytail. The straight ponytail is simply folded under itself and tucked back into the band, resembling a ball of hair. Grasped with an open palm, the fingers should meet at the band, thus the "ball" is contained in the man's hand. Called the "palm sander" grip, it allows full control of the woman's head with no wrist strain.
A third type of ponytail is the double ponytail. Two tails are formed toward the rear left and right sides of the female's head. A favorite among bikers as each tail can be grasped by a separate hand. The willing lady's head is steered like a motorcycle.
Caution: though clearly sexual stimuli for men, it is important for men to remember women do not always view it in the same context. Women often use ponytails just to keep hair out of their faces. The confused male should never just assume when a woman's hair is in a ponytail her head is ready for mounting. He should always ask first.
Betsy: Fuck off, Dickwad!
Greg: Oh. Okay, maybe later, then.
The second day of live feed from gamescom in Germany proved to be nothing but slow, dull hours of people standing by the DA2 booth and taking pictures in front of its poster.
Bored, the online viewers took note of one booth workers' Godly hairstyle of a long, blonde ponytail-braid. So enthralled were they that within just a couple hours; a Facebook page, several threads, a Chant of Ponytail (parody of DA:O's Chant of Light) and a social group on the Bioware forums had been created in honor of her.
Bioware remarked on it via Twitter, and Ponytail occasionally waved at the camera and appeared generally entertained by her sudden popularity from her self-titled army.
For there was no Llaidlaw, nor footage of gameplay either, for 8 hours.
But Ponytail appeared and shook her tresses;
and we found in her the beauty of a double rainbow.

Person 1: OMG! Ponytail just waved at the camera.
Person 2: Ponytail waved? My life is complete.
"DAMN PONYTAILS ARE EVERYWHERE!"
"DID YOU SEE THAT PONYTAIL?...HE WAS LIKE DEEEYYYUMMMMMM!!"
"LET GO TO THE MALL AND TALK TO THOSE DAMN PONYTAILS"
