Default What do you do with your hands?
What do you do with your hands when you blow up a balloon by mouth?
Do you:-
a) grip the neck between your thumb & forefinger between breaths, with the other hand feeling the far end (drip point) expanding.
b) grip the neck between your lips & use your tongue to stop air loss between breaths, with both hands clasping each side of the balloon
c) grip the lip between your teeth & use tongue to stop air loss, with your hands cupping around the inflated neck to feel the tightness of the latex (this one I expect is only for b2p people)
or d) what else do you do with your hands?
It would be interesting to get some feedback of our own preferences.
I'm a) by the way.

E) Grip the neck between thumb and forefinger between breaths, while stroking myself 'down there' with the other.

a) is the closest for me. I usually cup my hands to shield my face in case the balloon pops prematurely. If I'm feeling brave, I go for e)

Mostly a) and when it comes to really tight balloons or a (rare) B2P it is a mix between a) and c). I grip the neck between thumb and forefinger and cup my hands around the inflated neck.

I also love b) and even managed to blow to pop two or three balloons like that.
It is a very intense experience, the inflated neck presses against your lips and sometimes even your nose and with your flat hands on each side of the balloon you feel its tightness. Very, very exciting but also somehow scary ... at least for me.

But I don't know exactly if I use my tongue to stop air loss.
I think I just keep the air pressure inside my mouth while I breath in through my nose...
