Default Help me lose my fear of doing a B2P!
I have NEVER done a single blow to pop in my life. I can pop using other ways, with little fear, but I am too scared to do one. I need your help, how do I do it? How do you all do it?

You try easing yourself into it with a handpump?

I don't have a handpump. When inflating balloons, I also blow by mouth, but don't over-inflate. Once it gets just a little past it's rated size, i tie it off.

Blindfold yourself so you can't tell?

Sure, I will try a 12", blindfold myself, and listen to loud music on my earphones. Hope I succeed! Maybe I can eventually do a 16" B2P without any protection!

If the noise bothers you, then definitely use earplugs. You can get some cheap ones from pretty much any hardware store. If you're wearing earplugs, the pop won't sound much louder than if you popped the balloon in a different way.
When I did my first few b2ps, I made a mask out of cardboard, with only a hole for my mouth. I also wore gloves to protect my hands, though that might make it more difficult to hold on to the balloon. It might also help to sit or lay down in your bed with the duvet pulled up to your shoulders. This will make the shockwave from the pop less noticeable.

Get a lot of balloons. Keep blowing bigger and bigger and popping them other ways. Helps to have balloons that arent super strong and loud (tuftex, etc)
