Default Re: Why don't you pop 'loons?
Literally due to a traumatic experience as a child.my parents used to burst them because they knew I enjoyed them. To my tiny child brain they were killing my friends and protecters. That instilled a massive phobia I have to this day still can't do parties. Eventually balloons turned into a sexual fetish but I still use balloons as a comfort today despite being 34 I still have to sleep with a balloon or, as I am now, sat in my chair with a 16 unique. It makes me happy. So it's 50% comfort 50% sexual attraction. Only one person on this earth can burst my balloons and that's my wife. And only she can do it in a way that does not traumatise me. She may not be a looner but damn she's good with balloons.

At the risk of repeating what others say, it's simply because:

1) I hate loud noises (e.g. fireworks, et al), so balloon-pops are something I actively avoid, at every possible stage.

2) I hate balloons being wasted, by being popped. It feels to me, like an unnecessary waste of the balloon, that I would rather treasure it.

3) The only time I get rid of a balloon, is once it's dangerously oxidised or doesn't seem like it will last very much longer, or someone has overinflated it to the point that I worry it'll pop, or if a balloon can't be saved and/or reused. At that point, I carefuly cut-off the knot, deflate the balloon, and discard it in the bin.

Mainly fear. Not sure why. I think it's the unexpected pops that really freak me out. I enjoy watching others pop from afar but if I'm in the same room I can't. And doing it myself is tough. One day I hope to get there though! I need to find some privacy to practice!

I'm much the same. It's fear, never have liked loud unexpected noises. It's something that conceptually appeals to me, but not so much so that I want to try to overcome that fear (or use earplugs). On the practical side, we've got a tiny (1k sq. ft.) house and a dog, who, despite his age and the attendant hearing loss, is still freaked out by the smoke alarm, and even the sharp tone that precedes "The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm warning for..."

you know its weird, if my girl was blowing up a balloon in my pants and it popped? that'd be hot AF
but popping a balloon myself? Scary
A couple times as a kid i popped balloons and it actually hurt a fair bit, i guess the latex slapped against my skin as it rapidly retracted. once it actually left a welt on my arm. ever since then i've been afraid to pop balloons in case it hurts.

Like so many Looners, it's the anxiety associated with the loud noise that prevents me from deliberately popping balloons.

As you can probably tell by my username, I want to become a fully fledged popper. Ultimately, I know I enjoy popping balloons and I enjoy watching women pop them (provided I'm in control in sessions ) and you can always adjust the volume in video clips.


Popping a balloon is never as bad as I think it's going to be. It's just getting over that initial fear that really paralyses me. Sometimes once I have popped one, I can do more. To be honest, alcohol helps my nerves here and my confidence.

I don't think blow to pops will ever be something I could do, though.
