Freaky Friday: Balloon Lovers a.k.a. Looners (squeaky squeak...)

I was reading a post last month over at Sex N Fries about these people, and I instantly had a new favorite fetish.

what a, erm, pair...
I'm talking about people who incorporate balloons into the bedroom.  Looners, as they like to be called, use balloons in various forms of coitus.  For example, using it as something to prop your partner on top of...

According to wikipedia as well as loonervision (warning, NSFW), the thrill of balloons can come in different ways.  Some people live for the 'pop' while others love the sounds the balloons make when rubbing up against other objects.

The 'poppers' like to inflate the balloon until it pops, or use a sexy object to pop the balloon during points of the sexual experience.  Stiletto heels, their lover, or just a needle can be used to pop the object.  Just as long as it's done in an erotic manner.  Non-poppers, however, keep the balloon inflated at all times during sex, and use it more as an environmental prop instead of directly involved in the act.

Wikipedia also mentions that most fetishes have a basis in phobias.  Psychologists have done some minor research in fetishes to see if they spawn from childhood fears.  For example, with Looners, the sound of a balloon's explosion may spark a sort of 'fight-or-flight' mentality, and that adrenaline rush is now seized as an orgasmic enhancement.

All I know is this:  If I'm in the bedroom with my girl, and I pop a balloon in her face when she's close to climax, I'm getting my ass kicked.  And I probably won't be getting any for a while...

There may be benefits to using large inflatables like Yoga Balls or wedges in the bedroom (angles and such...) but balloons by themselves don't really do it for me.  Maybe if I were a part-time circus clown, things would be different.

I'd like to consider myself to be pretty open and adventurous when it comes to trying out new things, but I'm not getting a sexy vibe from balloons.  Roleplay?  Sure.  A little S&M?  When done right... Balloon animals?  Doesn't seem like the time or the place.  I understand the feeling of the rush people get when they hear the explosion, but there are other ways to get that same adrenaline kick.  Public places, for example...

What say you, oh peanut gallery?  While this subject fascinates me (from an outside perspective) I just don't see the sexual draw to this.  Do any of you see this as remotely sexy?  Do you like adding an adrenaline rush into your sexual escapades?  If so, how?  I always love hearing from you.

In the meantime, please enjoy this video from Durex condoms.  While not incredibly sexy, it's still a damn funny vid to watch.  PLUS it's full of 'sexy' balloon sounds...

Please Share it! :)

I'm just happy when I get some and if it involved balloons I'd still take the offer.

Benji Radman said...

Once you pop, you cant stop, apparently.

Nao said...

Balloons, They pop every when you don't want them too... Like a guy that finishes too quick.

Kicking Rocks said...

THE SNEE said...

So that is what the song, "Pop goes the Weasel" is about.

Lady Estrogen said...

That commercial just made my day.

Annah said...

If this even safe for work? LMAO

Some people live for the "pop" sound! Hilarious.

Random Girl said...

This one is news to me, which is surprising even to myself! Love the video more than can be appropriately expressed in this comment. Too Hilarious!

Plixx said...

Would'ja look at the balloons on her???

Jay Reid said...

LOL at the idea, and also LOL at lurker's comment.

D4 said...

I knew about poppers. I've had experiences and I wont explain them. I didn't know about the NON poppers though, that's pretty interesting.

And like, that video just made my entire day. What a gem!

The Simple Dude said...

Amazing.. I have heard some people get off on balloon sitting, or even weirder, watching others sit on balloons and pop them.

I can find better uses for latex.

Ha ha, love the commercial. My hubs and I haven't tried balloons... humm!

Chris Phillips said...

That video is A-mazing.

Jewels said...

I am pretty sure I would deck a guy if he magically pulled out a balloon and popped it in my face during sex...or just popped it in general. I don't like being scared. I am down for a lot of things and consider myself adventurous but I don't think this would be my thing...but to each their own.

Rob said...

If there is a balloon animal involved is it beastiality?

Bart said...

disturbing post is disturbing

Ana said...

LOL this in unreal...! this is just people being stupid and once more overexploring concepts. now, everything can be a fetish..! why not make some soup and have sex eating it..!? that would be a fetish in the new world.

Lost.in.Idaho said...

@Ana: YES!! You like your chunky soup, come get your chunky soup...

Suddenly clam chowder takes on a whole new euphemism...

The Empress said...

Thumbs down on balloons in the bedroom. The fact that people get off in this manner however does fascinate me. I did a post about this a few months ago complete with a video from the show Strange Sex. Apparently the subject in question did have his fetish originate from a childhood fear. Now he blows his load over popping colored balloons. Go figure ; )

Colin Biano said...

i thought it was going to be someone having sex WITH a balloon

kind of disappointed

Zombie said...

oh yay balloons!! Especially when you use them like that! :p

Annabelle said...

No. Just no.

Can you imagine these folks at a circus or a zoo? All those ballon bundles? Yikes.

thenitefalls said...

I didn't know balloons can be used in this way haha!

Autumnforest said...

Balloons, huh? I think creating static and shocking each other during sex would actually be kinda hot. Thanks for the idea!

Melanie said...

ummmm. ok. am i just really sheltered? it takes all kinds i guess!

Mynx said...

nope, dont think so, just plain ick.

PaulPolish said...

Balloons remind me of latex, latex reminds me of dominatrix... lol

Science said...

Balloon sex didn't turn out to be what I thought it was...

On My Soapbox said...

I so do not get the balloon thing. If a balloon popped while DH and I were "busy", someone would get shoved off the bed - and it wouldn't be me. And then he'd have to sleep with one eye open for weeks until I got him back for scaring me half to death.

A little late to the party.... But I brought balloons! I'm a looner and would say I'm more a semi-popper type guy. I don't necessarily need to pop a balloon to get off but I like it when my girl, any girl really, pops a balloon. We use them in foreplay. my gf likes to be spanked so it works out good. She pops my balloons and in turn gets some stern discipline. It's all in good fun.
