I definitely get nervous if im near someone that's blowing up a balloon and it starts to get really big and tight and they won't stop blowing it up ,sometimes i just have to walk away, anyone else ever experience this.

I'm sure anyone phobic has experienced this. Growing up, anytime I saw balloons come into sight (especially uninflated ones) I would leave immediately. Now that I'm an adult such situations don't happen anymore, which is a shame since now I've gotten over my phobia enough that I could enjoy being around women playing with balloons

I can relate as well. I still reflexively want to put my hands to my ears when a balloon is getting big.

I can definitely enjoy it especially when girls/ladies do that. And, of course, I deserve the final pop...

I can also enjoy watching children playing with/popping balloons but that's an other story; It takes me back to my childhood when I tried to overcome my fear of balloons - (too) succesfully...

A lot of people say that it is very uncomfortable to be in that situation, and I can see why. While 99% of the population views balloons as objects for kids or decoration (rightfully so), we see them as objects of sexual desire first and foremost.

I've never had a problem with it. What I generally do (usually at birthday parties for my young cousins) is try to separate the two "sides" of what balloons can be used for (toy/decoration vs fetish object) and think of them only in "innocent" ways.

Hell, I'm so good with this stuff that I always get asked to help blow up or tie them!

I get nervous although at the same time I love to see (especially ladies) blowing and get huge balloon.
I look for a "safety" place and I can enjoy the situation if I'm able, if I'm not I would to avoid and go away if too near, if I can't both, my anxiety wear out me and I just hope they end soon.

I like to watch kids play with balloons, too. Though I kind of hate young kids (they're a nightmare, I like to watch older boys like 10+ blow up balloons, play with them, and even burst them. Great fun I think, especially to watch them sit and bounce on a balloon and struggle to burst it.

Apart from that, it's middle-aged men playing with balloons that get me excited and happy in a sexual way.

I getting nervous when someone else starts overinflating his or her balloon. Afraid of the possible bang. I also don't know if there is the intention to pop the balloon.

I'm also afraid when someone knots off an overinflated balloon. There is a substancial risk of popping.

I used to hang out in party stores and watch the staff inflate balloons. You know they aren't going to deliberately pop the balloon, so it is a good place to develop "balloon watching courage". Even braver, order a half dozen balloons and stand nearby as they get inflated. Even braver that that, flirt with the person as they inflate the balloons (that is fighting two demons).

Having said that, there were times that I had to walk away. Sometimes, you would find someone who inflated balloons well into the neck.

These days I find that the bored staff at most chain party shops under inflate balloons (I'm looking at you Party City), and it isn't as interesting. Worse, 12 inch balloons seem to keep getting smaller.

Most of my balloon watching was at independent party stores, which are getting harder to find.

Hi,

I can't normally be around anyone blowing-up balloons, as I worry they will pop. It's the lack of control over the situation that bugs me. However, if I could trust the person enough, I would definitely be much cooler with them doing the inflating.
