A woman has revealed her unusual fetish for balloons, explaining the ways she uses them as sex toys and to have sex on top of.
Maggy BerLoon (not her real name, obviously), started experimenting with the inflatables over a decade ago after meeting husband Jan, and describes it as "a hell lot of bouncy fun".
The 31-year-old said that pleasure seekers, known as ‘Looners’, enjoy the balloons in many ways, whether they’re normal size, much larger and in all sorts of shapes.
Maggy, from Solingen, Germany, said there is an added thrill that comes from knowing the balloon could pop at any moment – and wants people to embrace this lesser known desire.
"Balloons somehow get people aroused, but how can be entirely diverse," she said.
"I think for all Looners, everything is about the material, the shape, the look, the feel, the colour, the flexibility and the high tension that such a fragile object can take.
"Most Looners get aroused by actually playing with balloons – sitting on them or rubbing them, and having sex on them, alone or with one or more persons.
"Others just love to watch other people playing with them in a teasing, sexy way.
"The power, to tease and push boundaries are essential aspects.
"You can be gentle or rough and play with the limits of the balloon as well as with your partner’s.
"You may think you are in full control, but that’s not true. Balloons might burst anytime, unwanted or provoked."
She added that those who are particularly aroused by balloons popping call themselves ‘poppers’, those who hate the burst are ‘non-poppers’.
Maggy is also the CEO of Balloons United, a shop for Looners and balloon fans.
She is opening up about the world of balloon fetishes in the hope of educating strangers and empowering other Looners who can feel they are "alone".
"Everyone should own the right to discover themselves, as well as their desires without being afraid or feeling ashamed," she said.
"It’s all about enjoying your life to its fullest, whatever this means individually – of course, if its legal and doesn’t harm anybody.
"To summarise it shortly, it’s a hell of a lot of bouncy fun."
Maggy explains that when talking to openly to others about the fetish, people will often laugh or struggle to take her seriously.
While she concedes the thought of a balloon fetish is amusing, she also hopes people can keep open minds about the desires of others.
Maggy said: "Most people are just naturally surprised and have tons of questions, since they never heard of it before or never had the chance to talk with someone about it.
She added that sometimes people seem interested at first but end up "making silly jokes".
"I guess this often just comes out of insecurity or maybe they themselves struggle with their own sexuality, needs, sexual fantasies in some way," she added.
Maggy and her husband Jan post images online showing the balloons and to try to bring greater awareness of the fetish and to reduce the stigma surrounding it.
"It felt like the balloon fetish was stuck in a weird and hidden closet."
She said she felt inspired to "come out of the closet" to show pictures which she and her husband produced.
Maggy hopes the fetish will no longer be a taboo one day, as we are "better off" without being so judgemental of one another.
