Default Re: Advice for Next-Gen Looners
I too feel proud about my fetish since it non invasive. Apart from other fetishes which are really bizarre and some require physical contact with the opposite sex; compared to such thungs, balloon fetish is more friendly and can be accepted easily lest the person in front of u should be open minded. As a matter of tendency we try to reveal our fetish in front of our female counterparts (friends or girlfriends) but sadly, majority of them exclaim "eww" and "uggh" , "that's fucked up" or "it's gross".

I don't know what do they think about us looners in their mind. But based on some of my experiences I've postulated a few reasons:

1. Due to the increasing demand of maturity from our society, people try to behave mature and things which may look childish are considered taboo if used after a certain age (for e.g balloons). Why I reached this fact? See, nobody cares why a young kid is buying a balloon. But people might surely raise an eyebrow if a grown up, say a man in his 30s buys some balloons.

2. GIRLS LOVE BALLOONS. Yes. They do. But as I said in the above point, maturity. It all starts from the home and the peer group. At home parents would be continuously nagging a girl or a boy for their childish desires after they hit a certain age of puberty. And when it is about balloons, you are continuously being told that balloons are for kids u are a grown up now. This creates a complexity in them irrespective of them being a looner or not.

3. Too much of self dignity also leads to hatred towards this fetish. Do we looners openly accept our fetish? No! Do we even show ourselves? Hell no! Why?? Coz we are afraid tht this fetish might soil our dignity and people may term us a weirdo. And it does happen. I've been a victim of it many a times.

And why does all this happen?? Refer to the points 1 & 2. You will get your answer.

There is a need of a widespread movement for balloon fetish acceptance as the LGBT community did. Then only people will be cleared of misconceptions and would be able to accept us as human beings too.

What do you think looners?

The first two chapters of my story are up. I’ve written a lot more, but not in order, so I have more to fill in before I keep posting.

My advice in a nutshell:
  • Itís ok. You are not a freak. You just have a fetish, which many people have.
  • There are others out there.
  • Keep it private, and be very, very wary of whom you share it with.
  • Enjoy it to the fullest, but donít allow it to get in the way of everyday life.
  • Seriously, enjoy it! You have this thing that lets you get off using a cheap toy ó weird, but potentially fun!

Question: how many of y'all are out here meeting young or future looners in real life? Personally, I think it'd be kinda hard to spot a kid who may be taking a little extra interest in balloons. Unless they approach you about the subject, how would you even begin a conversation with a young/future looner? It'd be a disaster if you were spot a young person taking extra interest in balloons, you try to give them some looning fetish advice, and turns out that they just really like balloons in a non-fetishized fashion. Wouldn't it kinda seem a little inappropriate at a certain age to really have this conversation with them anyways? We're giving sexual advice to young people that we potentially do not have the type of relationship (e.g., familial/parental, close friend), which is kinda walking a fine line of acceptability. Don't get me wrong, it's an interesting question we're posing here. Also, it's kinda nice to imagine what I wish someone would have told me as I was first coming to understand that I had this fetish. But beyond that, I dunno. If anyone has had this experience, it'd be super interesting to learn more about your encounter.

Perhaps I'm wrong, but maybe people finding their way/ having their own journey to the fetish and the community is kinda the natural course in becoming a "looner". Just like any other fetish, (e.x., BDSM) unless they learn about the fetish from some sort of media exposure or it becomes mainstream (50 shades of grey), I believe they'll just naturally find their way here in time. It sucks, because there certainly is an isolating, shameful, secretive, stigmatizing nature to having a fetish. But the upside is that there is always the opportunity with the more you learn about the fetish and connect with other people, you can grow more comfortable in your own skin. Helping and giving advice to a "new" looner when they learn about the community is a beautiful thing imo, but actively going out to bring people in seems like a slippery slope. How do other fetish communities deal with this issue?

I can remember the alone feeling when I thought that I was the only one as well. It was a huge shock when I found out that I wasn't. I am guessing that this is still a pretty rare fetish and I have never met a fellow looner in person, but at least the newer generations will have a lot more information that is quick and easy to access.
