This is more psychology related so I hope this is the right section, but my balloon fetish has always fascinated me. At the age of 3-4 I had a balloon popped in my face . I can remember to this day this happening and from this traumatic experience I developed a phobia.
From the age of 4-11 I had an extreme phobia of balloons, but later into my adult years I began to have fantasies about girls inflating really big balloons. I began overcoming my fear by blowing up balloons then eventually doing b2p's, which developed into sexual pleasure and my fetish. Now as an adult I love the sight of a member of the opposite sex blowing up a balloon, and dream of the next occasion when I can blow up balloons with people.
Sorry for the essay haha but I am fascinated how the human brain is wired somehow to turn a phobia into sexual arousal. Perhaps it's a mechanism from thousands of years ago to help humans cope with danger, not sure, would love to hear your opinion.
Also does anyone experience this; I find that my fetish sort of goes in a phase. I experience a period of time where I am not interested in balloons then bang suddenly my balloon fetish explodes and just the sight of a deflated balloon is a turn-on for me.
