Default Are girls more fearless than guys?
I've noticed with blow to pops and just blowing up balloons in general that girls seem to me more fearless and outgoing than guys. Do you think this is true? Have you had any experiences with this?

There may be something in that!..in my experience when I was a kid it always seemed to be the girls who did the blowing up, not just balloons but beachballs and lilos/airmats too! I was a bit scared but fascinated and wanted to try it too but they generally would not let me.

However when I reached puberty I had balloon fun with a couple of boys a few years older than me who would really go at it!.....and I started to see just as many teenage boys enjoyed inflation as girls.

That's an interesting question Blue. I don't know that girls are more fearless in general. While I don't know if any of my friends actually have a balloon fetish, I can think of a few of my girl friends who would definitely be classed as "poppers" and for whom btp is no big deal. Others are terribly frightened and even when dared have outright refused or said they can't. None of the boys I know would back down from a challenge like that, but I think it tends to be more of a macho thing

Can you describe in what way the girls were terribly frightened?

I think in general girls are allowed to be scared by society. Boys aren't. So girls can say that they don't want to participate, boys can't.
So the girls who participate are more fearless than the boys that participate, because some boys actually don't want to take part.
I don't know your experience Katielynn, but some boys can take part in those events, but are always on the second row and never pop their balloons.

I've noticed that as well. At least in my experience with balloon related activities, mostly at school, it seems that typically the males were the ones that would like to pop normal sized, already inflated balloons, but I can remember that it was nearly always females blowing them up really, really big!

I think you cannot say that in general. But I have some fear of the noise of pooping balloons, so I have to use earplugs that I can do a blow to pop. And at the same time, I know a girl (not my girlfriend) who sometimes blows balloons to pop and does that because its just fun to her.

Large, because I can blow more before being scared of a possible pop
