To begin, I would like to apologize to the people who are following me for taking so much time to write my next post.  I have been fighting an upper-respiratory infection and I just began volunteer work.  But now that I’m healthy, let’s continue the fetish study.

People who describe themselves as having a balloon fetish say that they gain sexual arousal from sexual interaction with balloons, being around balloons, or use balloons in their sexual encounters.

There are many different aspects of balloons that people describe as erotic.  The two most common that I have been able to find are an excitement from the buildup to the balloon popping, and the general erotic shape that balloons can have when inflated.  This combination of erotic shapes and extreme endorphin rushes creates a connection with balloons and the sex drive.

The uses of balloons in the sexuality of balloon fetishists is wide and varied throughout the community.  The majority of balloon fetishists appear to enjoy the act of inflating balloons until they burst, getting a sexual “high” off of the rush of endorphins.  Others enjoy physical sexual contact with inflated balloons themselves.  And in a few cases, individuals derive a sexual thrill from being able to climb into inflated weather balloons.

The very act of being inside of a balloon can be arousing to a balloon fetishists.

But what about you?  Are you a balloon fetishists, or know someone who is?  What do you get out of your fetish?  And if you are not a balloon fetishists; then what do you think of the fetish?
