Last week I covered financial domination. This week I bring you "looning" or, to put it simply, balloon fetishes.
A couple years ago, TLC was airing this show called Strange Sex. It lasted hardly a season with only six short episodes, but I remember one being about balloon fetishes. The show followed a stranger around as he explored his fascination with balloons and visited a fetish club in New York. What interested me was that he was initially afraid of balloons... only to develop a sexual fetish for them later in life.
Like pretty much anything, there is a surprisingly large underground world of looners, as they are often referred, with many sites and videos dedicated to the fetish.
Among the looners, there are "poppers" and "non-poppers" or those who like the popping of a balloon and those who dread it. With both, the rush comes from the anticipation of the pop. Some may also enjoy blowing them up until they pop, or sitting/lying on them. Some may also experience an attraction or emotional attachment to the balloon.
