Balloon Fetish: sex toy balloon

– The german radio station Fritz reports about being a Looner on the international fetish day –

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word „fetish“?
Probably the first associations are lacquer, leather, latex and BDSM. An outdated view I think, which should be changed. Because apart from BDSM there are a lot of other sexual preferences of course. That´s why us Looners with our fetish for balloons get more and more attention and popularity of the general fetish community as well.

In keeping with this issue, a new article about us was published on January the 15th, 2016, the international fetish day. Of course, I don´t want to reveal too much, but to summarize it a little bit: it´s about the Looning itself, about BALLOONS UNITED and LOONERS UNITED and about Jan and me. You got the opportunity to catch a short glimpse of our everyday working life and maybe you can get some more new details about us.

But you better take a look and enjoy yourself. You can find it at the web portal of the german radio station Fritz of RBB. Since it’s a more or less local radio station sadly it´s only available in the German language. But I tried to translate at least the written part into English on the bottom of this page.

Here’s the link to the complete article, also with some great pictures from André Krenz Photography:

Jan and I feel greatly honored and both of us are really happy about the interest. We really appreciate it! So a big thank you for this dear RBB team!

English translation of the article:

Balloon fetish: sex toy balloon

„Bursting, colorful, smooth shapes“ – these are the first connotations that pop into the minds of Maggy and Jan when it comes to balloons. But we´re not talking about the little Micky-Mouse-Balloons, which you might use as a decoration on a children’s’ birthday party. It’s more about giant life-sized balloons up to a length of 2,5 meters or a diameter of 1,8 meters, which Maggy and Jan include in their sex-life.

Love, air, and lightness

The two Berliners-by-choice are so-called „Looners“. They live the balloon fetish („Looning“) and often include balloons during sex. In the video Maggy and Jan talk about what’s behind the fetish, the meaning of the terms „Popper“ and „Non-Popper“ and of course why these fragile things rock during sex with one alone or even with two, three, four, five people…

To pop or not to pop?

The so-called „Popper“ is thrilled by bursting balloons in all kinds of ways. There are special terms for every single popping method like „Nail-Pop“ by using the fingernails to pop a balloon, „Sit-To-Pop“ by sitting hard on the balloon or „Blow-To-Pop“ by blowing the balloon until it bursts. A „Non-Popper“ tries to avoid popping a balloon and is more attracted to the friction, the feeling on the skin or the smell of a balloon.

Maggy and Jan would describe themselves as „Semi-Poppers“: popping is okay but not necessary. „In one moment it’s cool. Bang. Not cool anymore“, Jan describes the unpleasant moment when a balloon burst underneath them during sex.

From fear to fetish

Above all the Looner scene is characterized by one thing: it´s dominated by men. But that´s a common thing with all kinds of fetishes, says sexologist and couples therapist Joachim Reich, even if there´s no clear explanation for this. Also in Maggy and Jan´s relationship, he was the driving force. He determined his sexual preference when he was 14 years old. But when he was a child, he was terrified by the noise of a bursting balloon. But this isn´t a rarity like Jan says: „I know a lot of Looners, who were afraid of the bang as they were kids.“

Science is still arguing about how fetishes arise exactly in the first place. But the Berlin sexologist gets an instructive picture on this matter due to the work with his clients: often a fetish and a sexual arousal get together randomly, a so-called coincidence, which is a key event that left a deep mark. This might be the pretty varnish raincoat of an aunt in the childhood or a bursting balloon. Because also fear is an arousal, just a negative one.

From hobby to profession

Since almost two years Maggy and Jan are running an online shop for balloons in all kinds of shapes, colors, and sizes – no matter if you’re looking for a Donut, a caterpillar or a giant heart, they got it. And they are shipping worldwide: only about half of their customers come from Germany.

Their business requires so much time, that by now the former preschool teacher and the former event technician are running around between boxes with over 40.000 balloons and earn their money with the shop.

Next, to the shop they also have a blog – open for everyone. Due to a large amount of internet trolls out there that’s a real rarity in the community. With high-class pictures, where Maggy models herself, and personal stories they want to present the fetish for everyone who’s curious and the whole Looner community in a transparent and authentic way. And of course, they want to show: „That’s not weird, that’s not stupid. That’s just who we are.“ – or as they both say: „a completely normal life“.
