A man has opened up about his fetish after getting aroused by a person blowing up a balloon from a young age.
The 35-year-old, who wishes to remain anonymous, was just eight years of age when he first felt something sexual about a balloon.
It all happened while on a family holiday in Portugal when he saw a girl blowing up a balloon at the till of an ice cream kiosk.
He still remembers every detail of that day, from what the girl was wearing to her features, when he noticed what she was doing.
And he even kept the balloon safe as a remainder of what went down on that day his balloon fetish was born.
Now speaking to Daily Star, the man has opened up about his kink and admits his fetish is “his naughty little secret”.
He said: “I enjoy my kink, I find it interesting and it doesn’t harm anyone.
“I suppose you could say I enjoy balloons being blown up, preferably by a female. It turns me on.”
The man isn’t the only one to find balloons attractive as the sexual kink is popular among looners, a person with the fetish.
He added: “I am still aroused by balloons until this day, it’s been around with me ever since.”
Instead of shying away from his “looner” fetish, he started to introduce his kink in the bedroom.
His ex wife was a bit startled at first but allowed him to explore his attraction.
He explained: “I guess she was shocked at first, but it became an obsession for me as I wanted to explore further into it.
“I wanted to try new things with balloons, but it wasn’t really her thing so I kept it separate to our sex life.
“It’s something I have always been secretive about, after all, it’s not something you want your family and friends to find out about.”
Now that the dad is opening up about his fetish, he hopes it portrays the kink in a positive way.
He continued: “A lot of people think that a balloon fetish would involve leering over birthday parties.
“But that’s not the case at all. I keep my balloon secret mostly to myself, but my ex-wife knew about it at the time.”
The anonymous man is also quite selective about who he tells when it comes to relationships too.
He also knows how to deal with it in public, like if he was at a birthday party.
The man detailed: “I avoid using balloons in a public place, purely because I don’t want to associate with them with family and friends.
“I have a fear that people might find out it is a fetish and I don’t get turned on by balloons at a party.
“I’d like to portray this kink in a positive way and for it not to sound creepy, because it’s not.”
