Default First ever intentional pop
I was at the football today and on the way out a load of balloons were swirling in the wind by the exit I went through. I am the biggest non popper going and I hate nice new balloons being popped but am not so bothered about older ones or ones blown up by others. Anyway I felt compelled to grab one of the blue balloons.

I picked it up and it wasnít too big, actually a bit squishy. There were a few others around and I just squeezed it between my hands and it popped not too loudly. I never though I would be able to do this but I did quite enjoy the feeling of squeezing the balloon. I donít think Iím all of a sudden going to start popping balloons but i thought i would share my experience it felt quite nice!

Hey Seasider, thanks for sharing! I know how nervous you can get while preparing to pop your first balloon, so welcome to the club I hope you find the way to play with (or pop) the balloons that brings you the most joy!

I did it in my age of 8. I was afraid of balloons and I decided to try to pop one. I blew one up about to the rated size, tied it, put it to the carpet and covered with two blankets. Then, I pushed a long needle through the blankets until I heard a muffled boom. I was satisfied and later I tried it with one blanket...

Later I tried to step on balloons and I realized that you have to put the knot to the top and step on it for the loudest bang. Jumping onto balloons was more satisfactory :-)

I've disliked to sit on balloons because - I think - my all "balloon thing" started that way. My mum brought a fairly big red balloon (compared my size, I was about 4) and made me sit on that terrible thing. It was inconvenient, instable, and finally my uncle popped it with his cigarette and I felt back...

My first intentional B2P was much-much later, there were some "accidents" though...

Yes, you have to step on the neck vertically and do not let it bulge out...

The difference in sound from the two techniques is pretty big. Way louder if you stop the neck from bulging out

I have been practicing intentional popping recently. Now i can pop balloons (with earplugs) with a pin of knife. Though other ways, like sitting, is still difficult.

Does someone have any tips, or experience how to make the next step? Though i get used to the bang, when i sit on a balloon, and want to pop it, I am still not able to..

Blow up a ton of the same balloons different sizes. Pin pop a few to get your courage up. A tightly inflated balloon will be louder with a pin than sitting on it. Sitting on an underinflated balloon is harder to make it pop.

Congratulations!

My first pop I wanted to do and which I did was in a club with louder music. That was my firs wanted pop ever, as the noise completely was lost in the beat of the music.

I am still trying to do a b2p and I still struggle with it. I am sitting there saying to myself "ey It will not kill you, so why don't you just power through and blow until ip happens" but I still freak out nearly before.

My dream would be a looner in NYC forcing me to do it as I like to have a more submissive role as well ;-)
