Funny, the guy shooting the movies with balloon fetish is actually wearing ear protection cous he can't stand the bang!
**you read my thought**
ooh, now that's given me an idea ...
Ouh,... do share!
BTW, your avatar gives me the creeps : (
HeHe,.. that was what I hoped for.
Funny- I was _just_ talking about this yesterday.
Out of all the kinky people I know (and I know a lot of them) the most completely out there, are the balloonatics. I know two of them, and the lengths to which they'll take their fetish are kind of unreal.
"balloonatics" - not a word you hear every day!
The balloon fetish was defenately the most inocint one of the bunch they discused. The next one was food fetish. Swimming around in yogurt and beans in tomatoe sause.
Perverts! what wrong with good old fashioned straight sex, wrapped in tinfoil under the couch?
I think that's part of the problem with it-- there's something very Not Okay about tricking people into satisfying your kink. And the balloonatics do this kind of thing a lot. No one thinks of it as anything that could be sexual-- so it's very easy to get people who wouldn't be interested otherwise into doing what they want.
Where were you that this was being discussed? I'm curious, of course, given my thesis.
Like drooling over the clown blowing up balloons at birthday parties?
It was watching a doc on fetish on the Discovery Channel. I'm in holland.
That, or more likely, getting random girls to blow up balloons for you at a picnic or an outdoor thing... Getting people to pop a balloon... It all seems *really* innocent, so no one thinks anything of it.
I have a HUGE (really, it's enormous) ziplock bag here full of balloons that got sent to me years ago by a balloonatic. All he wanted was photos of me blowing them up.
They're still in the bag.
starts to feel really weird about the Helium balloon party kit sitting next to me ...
(it's my youngest daughter's birthday party on Staurday)
Helium doesn't tend to do it, so dont worry. The people I know always need them blown up by people with plain air.
But what is the kick with balloonfetish?
Some fetishish I get to a sertain point,...
Gael I may have to report you to social services if you have ballons at the party
BTW programme as called Sex Sense.....
The kick, apparently, is to watch people blow them up and pop them. Sit on them... whatever.
If you like I can nudge one of my people over here who can answer this more fully...
They are always welcome to join this discussion,.... :)
He's not logged in now, but as soon as he is, I'll point him over here. He's very nice.
Strangely, because I've been a heavy smoker for years, one of the things I'm really good at is blowing up balloons. I'm thrilled to think there might actually be a demand for my talent.
Wouldn't smoking trash your lungs capacity?
You would think so wouldn't you? But honestly, every Christmas at work I blow up about 50 without a problem.
Who knows Twiglet,..... Belf can hook you up ;)
I'm intrigued. I can even do the long thin ones.
Off to a reunion party now,.... hope they have balloons.
I almost had a stroke when I tried to inflate a long thin ballon.
*Stroke as in brain problem, not as in stroke :) *
Quite seriously balloon inflating (with my own breath) is one of my few talents. When I do it NO ONE can quite believe it. I'm thinking really seriously about giving up smoking....I WILL BE AWESOME!
Do you put in on your CV as well?
God yes! Without it I'd never find work!
Working in a toystore then?
Not for nothing, but people make *FAT BANK* blowing up balloons on camera on balloonatic pay sites.
I am not kidding.
Reaches for asthma lung capacity thingie and starts practising ...
(gives a whole new dimension to peak flow)
I'm gonna have a google,.... on balloonatic.
Interesting Wiki clicky
When I was a smokey I tried to blow up 20 balloons in a row and passed out after 8 :)
Much better now though, so twiglet I doubt it's *BECAUSE* you're a heavy smoker, rather *Despite* you being a heavy smoker :)
ISTR that blowing up ballons via the oral method is Not Recomended by ontolarygologists & the like - something about excessive pressure in the eustation tubes... Would balloonatics derive the same pleasure from watching someone pump up a balloon, d'you think Bronxelf?
WouW Hildegard,.. they should give a healt warning on balloon packs as well then!!
Sean, totally agree. I couldn't run up stairs to save my life but I can blow for England : )
Bronxelf has given me hope for a career change!
PPuff: No not a toy shop, in fact as far from that as it is possible to get. It was an attempt at humour....
"I can blow for england"
*Falls over giggling*
**Falls over blushing**
Yes, yes, as usual all puns intended...
just by means of clarification, I do know ONE sane balloon fetishist. Just making it clear that theyre not all impossible. :)
Im one of the two *looners* (balloonatic?? whats THAT?) da nice lady from Da Bronix knows. Im the sane/very nice one. I like her an awful lot and I agree that many looners out here are a few bricks short of a full load when it comes to their pursuit of the joys of the fetish. So gimme a minute to compose and Ill start typing.
nothing wrong with a fetish!
it just depends on how much you let it rule your life/relationship
(*sorry - ive just seen this)
Oh my God Gael, you almost made me snort bottled water out my nose, and that would be BAD, ya know? bwahahahahaha!
*looks at collection of PFM, IS, inhalers, cracks up again*
mee too dave but it was mentioned earlyer that they get people to blow them up with out them knowing they are taking part in that persons fetish that is a slight bit wrong in my mind, people can have fetishes and all but when they involve people without their consent thats odd to me!
sorry, but maybe that would save you from further unpleasant procedures at the docs : 0
i wouldnt mind fuelling someones fetish, if it was something seeminly normal to me!
but some people have morals is supppose
so if someone had a fetish about people in clean shoes walking in the mud and they were getting aroused watching you walk in some mud you wouldnt mind? (i saw it on graham norton)
well. a few different aspects come into play ehre
1) are they MY shoes
2) what type of mud
3) were they getting visibly aroused,
if they wernt my shoes and it was nice fun mud and they just filmed it and didnt pleasure themselves there and then
i dont think ild mind
ok, so the one big question (feel free to address specific questions...I love to enlighten. I do presentations for various fetish/BDSM groups on the fetish here in the NYC area) seems to be *whats the attraction?*
In many of our cases, the fetish stems from an event/incident in our childhood involving balloons. In my case, a TV game show. Lots of very attractive women playing with/popping balloons. Best as I can figure my lil prepubescent brain made the equation women + balloons = boy it feels funny down there (points to the contents of his pants). That accounts for the visual arousal. Then theres the tactile/physical. Balloons are latex. Latex feels gooooood against the body (yes I DO have latex clothing for fetish play as well). There are numerous tecnhniques of play that indulge that. Including incorporating vibrations with balloons. There are numerous ways balloons can be integrated with BDSM play as well.
Then theres also the mental arousal....those of us that enjoy popping have the thing where theres the tease/anticipation of the eventual *POP* that creates a delicious tension and eventual release. Theres also the concept of cross fetish...balloons with other such fetishes as: feet, shoes, hosiery, Wet and Messy, smoking, needle/knife play, breath play, entrapment, bondage, and so on.
The fetish is extremely diverse.
Thank you Balloonsensei, I found that most interesting and enlightening.
once again, moblog is so educational : )
my pleasure *takes a bow*
indeed, very informative, but i now want a baloon to play with!
Welcome Balloonsensei and thanks for helping us out. (as well as Belf for pointing you over here)
I do get the part about how it started,...
But how does it fit in, in your life. Do balloons in general, just hanging about being balloonish do it. Or is it only arousing when you go play with uhm.
Is there a border between object and "Crivens" that's horney!! Underdtand as with everything it's different for everyone.
"I know two of them, and the lengths to which they'll take their fetish are kind of unreal."
"just by means of clarification, I do know ONE sane balloon fetishist. Just making it clear that theyre not all impossible. :)"
and THANK you for clarifying that and clearing my good name. It really hurt when I thought you thought that of me.
"I think that's part of the problem with it-- there's something very Not Okay about tricking people into satisfying your kink. And the balloonatics do this kind of thing a lot. No one thinks of it as anything that could be sexual-- so it's very easy to get people who wouldn't be interested otherwise into doing what they want."
"That, or more likely, getting random girls to blow up balloons for you at a picnic or an outdoor thing... Getting people to pop a balloon... It all seems *really* innocent, so no one thinks anything of it."
Yeah, that sneaky approach is pretty f**ked up. But its not as common as you might think. Its been my experience with the ones I interact with online that theyre so paranoid about being discovered/outed/associated with a fetish whatever that they can barely stand to be anywhere near someone with a balloon outside the safety of their homes (in which some have to indulge secretly). Most are astounded that Ive become somewhat public (in some places) and open with it in that I DO gp to fetish/bdsm play parties and I DO interact with people and balloons. The response I get most commonly is * I could N E V E R do THAT*
Can imagine that it's pretty damn hard to fit something into your life that is normal for the majority of people and for something sexual.

Ok, the mere sight of a balloon doesnt really do it. Usually. Its kinda along the lines of *which came first the chicken or the egg* in terms of whether the balloon is the turnon or the girl WITH the balloon. For me its the interaction of the girl with the balloon. However, if I see mass numbers of balloons, my mind WILL wander into how much fun itd be there with a nice freaky girl.
On the other hand (yeah Im kinda complex) the way I explain it to friends is two fold....yes I DO have a fetish, and there are women in my life with whom I interact ON that basis. However, when it comes to balloons, Im a little kid that refused to grow up. I love balloons. And there are women in my life with whom I interact with balloons in the most platonic way possible...because THEY love them too!~ Theyre fun, silly, loving, happy, freaky people. That also refused to grow up. I (unlike many many looners) HAVE the self control and discipline to differentiate between the appropriate contexts for balloons. The FRIENDS amd the EROTICS so to say. The friends are people I just love to make happy, giggly, silly, and fun and to just embrace the child in them that never went away. They usually know about the fetish from me. But theres also the trust in me that Ill do the right thing with them. And I DONT violate that trust.
Much of my play is solo, though Ive been fortunate enough to have had friends Ive introduced to balloon in the erotic context.
Can't wait to see what's on Sex Sense next saturday!
Bronxelf sure knows some interesting people.....
That's for sure!
thanks for letting us know about it iits very enllightenig indeed. ballons are great fun! but i dont find them sexual but as PP says i can see how it started!
" but i dont find them sexual but as PP says i can see how it started!"
well, even if balloons themselves arent arousing...under MY context...Ive shown others with the same thought some things to try theyve totally embraced. Like the equation balloon + erogenous areas + manual/vibrator/woofer speaker induced vibrations = thaaaaaaank you sensei!~
balloon + erogenous areas + manual/vibrator/woofer speaker induced vibrations = thaaaaaaank you sensei!
How inventive a woofer speaker!!
a ravergirl friend of mine clued me in there...simple...balloon tween the nethers and the woofer...loud bassy music on...you can be visiously teasy and play with the music to brink someone to the brink...then stop...start...stop.
just added you to msn (Im kedspop)
and...gloooooowpoi!!! You spin obviously!~
Do you go all the way and light off with fire poi? I started lessons with some Burning Man friends a couple years ago. Had to stop last year for a while.
i litterly only just got them today never used them befor!
Blamb aka Burning Lamb
Burning Lamb...as in member of Burning Man community????
(shows BL membership card)
what no i have no idea what you are talking about either of you, your just confusing me!
No cous he will prolly be to clumbsy and set himself on fire :)
The fire poi are them thingies on a chain you swing around right?
oh i knew about the fire poi its all the other stuff i was confused about!"
i like to pop balloons too. i love the tension...and if it's a beautiful girl doing the blowing and building the tension then i'm very happy!!
Baloonis still finding this post?!? Amazing.
I am a looner myself and would just like to say that I think that balloons are fun.
me too - a looner for many many years.
It really turns me on when a woman blows up and/or pops a balloon- no matter she does it: sitting, her nails, blow til bust, squeezing, pin... it's the tension and excitmentfor me and for her of the pop-to-come. (perhaps nearly literally!)
The most tense ones are blow to pops - really make me squirm!
for a much better insight of who looners are and what they enjoy. It's a great site...
I remember when you posted this... who would have know that it would have grown to be so big!
Excellent, gotta love the diversity of choice
Looner? Me Too. Thing about *us* is we're a diverse bunch. Some like watching the blow-up. Some like the pop, the tension, the anticipation and all that. Others like touching, rubbing etc.
But me, and a good many like me? This is not what does it for us. What we like is riding the big ones. Feeling them lift us right off the ground and hold us in the air. Bouncing, humping maybe, but not popping if we can help it (the big ones are pretty strong). Big? 24" diameter inflated - that's still a baby, but nice to sit on and feel it hold. 36" - getting up a bit. 48"; 60"; 12'-long "airship" - now they are quite something. You can do a lot with them. And *TWO* can do even more, LOL.
And that's the other part of it, for us looners. Watching those of the opposite sex having the same sort of fun - or at least, looking like they are. The ladies on the balloon-fetish websites have awoken to this, and provide some lovely pics and vids of themselves doing what we find such a turn-on ourselves. Not all of us enjoy the luxury of having partners who wants to engage in this way, and NO - MOST OF US DON'T TRY DUPING THE OPPOSITE SEX INTO IT UNKNOWINGLY.
As I said, we're a varied bunch. Some straight, some gay, some bi, some into other weird stuff. . . But most pretty *normal* outside of the fetish. And perhaps it's that very normalcy, combined with the absolute innocuousness of our fetish (when compared to many of the more well-known kinks), that makes us seem so . . . not-normal. Indeed some of the so-called "normal" sexual behaviour of a lot of non-looners out there makes us wonder if we must be saner than most! So don't be tempted to take the piss, just because you don't understand the balloon fetish. And by the way, for many of us who like the *riding* sensation, vinyl inflatables such as beach-balls, pool-toys, air-mattresses, (blow-up-dolls ??) can work wonders too.
Me too. And I'm a chick as well.. I was scared of balloons as a kid, and now I enjoy it when my man teases me.. threatens me.. he's a looner too, and it's actually great fun. I guess it's kinda a dominance thing for me. I don't really care if it's normal or not, I enjoy it, and my guy does too so what's the problem?
Love Ida xx
Hi Ida. It's always nice to hear of real looner-chicks (as opposed to women who act along, but don't feel anything special), cause it seems there are not many of you around. Though maybe there are more who just don't announce it. Anyway I have to say that's one really lucky guy who's got you to share the balloon fun with! Go for it!!
I am definitely a looner. I love bursting balloons; hundreds of them and love them in my bed. I also love bursting them with sosme of my friends. I cant imagine life without them. blowing them up too hard and sticking my ciggy in them is so erotic. Jenny xx
yep. You qualify as a looner too.
blimey still going! mental!
I just read this thread. Fascinating and now understandable.
ES,... Yes how did you miss this?!?
Bmal,.. yep that's what I though when I looked it up this moring.
Taniwa,.. how long did it take you? :)
If there are any single ladies in the UK who are single and genuinely like balloons (either playing with them or bursting them for pleasure) please email me at the above address. Cheers D xx
hahaha....just read your interview and was guided to this thread......I can see why it is a fave ;-)
Hey all, just said I'd drop in to add my name to your looner thread! Also a looner, and non-popper (Very occasional popper though, depending on the partner! lol)... Love em big big BIG! Get blowin lol
(P) what's this?
