LOONERS UNITED_Interview_Italoon_01

– Ciao bella! An Italian institution for looner clips –

Can you please introduce yourself?

My name is Andrea Bini ( a male name in Italy), I’m 46 years old and I live in Livorno, in Tuscany, Italy. I’m a self-employed electrical installer and I have a wife. Together we live in the same house but we are in fact separated.

Are you a Looner?

Yes I’m a looner (popper)

How did you discover this fetish for yourself?

When I was a child I was scared about the balloons popping noises. I guess it’s because of a big explosion caused by a firework bomb launched from someone outside and entering the window of my bedroom in the 31 December 1973 that burned a part of the room. Well, this fear is gradually involved in the excitement of watching females who are playing and popping balloons.

Does your partner know about this and your local community like family and friends? How did they react?

Yes, my wife knows, my family not properly but they suspect something.

What exactly do you like most about a balloon?

Women who love popping balloons make me crazy, but I don’t use balloons during sex.

Which is your favorite balloon?

I especially love helium bouquets.

How would you describe the looner community?

The looner community is my second family and an essential part of my life!

What was your craziest, nicest or most interesting experience with a balloon?

Years ago, before I started to produce balloon clips, I found myself in the company of a girl who was part of the group of my friends. She started to inflate balloons to decorate the house for a New Year’s Eve celebration. Well, she liked to make some burst by overinflation and even stomping balloons on the floor while we were preparing them for the party. She didn´t suspect me having this fetish and it was a great day.

Do have other sexual preferences?

My fetish is about balloons, inflatables popping and fireworks lighting by women.

What is the name of your clip store?

My Clips4Sale store number is 47601 and it´s called „Italian balloon girls“.

When and how did you start to make clips?

13 years ago I asked my neighbor Daniela if she can help me popping balloons for a site that I wanted to start. I explained her everything about the balloon fetish and then she said „YES“. So I designed the first web page of italoon.org and we filmed like 20 outdoor clips to start. This was the beginning of a long story…

Do you just produce looner clips or also clips for other areas?

I produce clips with balloons, pool toys, and fireworks.

Who are your models?

I worked with over 40 models since I started in December 2002. At the moment I work with 15 models. Most of my balloon girls are also models for other photographers and a few of them are sexy porn stars.

Where is the limit or how far would your models go?

It depends, some of them make dressed clips, some bare clips and a few erotic clips like women kiss, hug or lick each other. I don’t make masturbation or male/female porn clips.

Does your partner knows about your work and your local community like family and friends? How do they handle it?

My ex-wife is not happy about it, but she knows. My family and friends don’t know about it.

Do you have a member pay site or is it also possible to buy just a single clip?

I’ve got a member pay site www.italoon.org and a specific version for mobile/tablet www.andrea918.wix.com/italoon

What are your prices?

The prices are similar to other balloon websites: 30 days membership for €23 then €21 recurring and special discounts for 60 and 90 days subscriptions. I also accept balloon orders instead of payment if someone wants to join but don’t have a credit card.

What is the average time of a clip and how long does it take to produce it?

I produce clips which can have a length up from 5 minutes to 20 minutes and full movies in DVD/DiVX 60/90 minutes long. I spend a lot of time to edit the clips with attention before I put them online.

How do you handle customer requests?

I listen to every request and if it’s possible I try to satisfy everyone. But I only do custom clips if the model requested agrees with the content of the customer´s request.

What are the most favorite topics?

I love topics which describe real life experiences/situations with balloons, especially if they are unexpected.

    Hi, I was hoping that someone might help me find a balloon that is used by ITALOON and The MISS LOONER videos. The one that I am most interested in would be the doll shaped balloon where the neck is at the head of the balloon, not at the base. If anyone has seen the videos, or promotional photos, you will see her inflating a pink clown/doll balloon. I see, and have, the ‘common’ doll balloon, with the neck at the base, but am really interested in the one as seen in the video.
    Thanks for your help!!

    Maggy and Jan: Thanks so much for this series of interviews. I have always wondered about the person or persons involved in my favorite websites.

    Italoon was not the first looner website, but no other website has featured as many different types of balloons and as many giant balloons. Cheers to Andrea.

    I also love the videos with Danny, the first balloon girl (women). I don’t understand a word of Italian, but her enthusiasm and laughter is infectious. She really enjoys playing with the big balloons.
