I was not thinking about Globophilia or Balloon fetishism when we shot this set. The images were intended to feature in my new book Ingles Para Pervertidos. To illustrate the chapter about sexual health I decided to pose with a condom and then blow it up like a balloon. The unintended consequences of playing with the condom is something that balloon fetishists or “Looners” know already. It was when I played with the inflated condom that I got a little carried away. My long red hair was tied back and I was wearing large glasses which got in the way a little. As the condom grew, the transparent latex began to exaggerate the image of my face and lips more and more. My glossy red mouth and pale fingers looked like a large fake vulva reflected in a distorting circus mirror. I began to appreciate how balloon fetishists felt. The condom grew longer and began to look like a huge rubber teat. My naked nipples looked small compared to this fake one. I was fascinated by the way the inflated latex looked and by how it sounded.The more I played with blowing into the condom and watching it expand, the more I understood why balloon fetishists get off on them so much. I could not decide whether I was a Popper or a Non Popper yet. As the shoot continued I became more passive and controlled by the condom. My poses became restricted. I had to bite into the end […]
Globophilia is the sexual arousal provoked by the presence of balloons. This response can be a result of blowing them up or letting them down. The fetish can also involve the aroma of the materials that balloons are made from. Their shape when they are fully inflated can also be crucial to some fetishists.
A balloon fetishist or “Looner” can experience gratification from the physical contact with an inflated balloon or the unexpected bursting of an over-inflated one. Popping can be caused by outside pressure or manipulation. Looners can be divided into Poppers or Non-Poppers.
A Popper is aroused by the failure or “popping” of the balloon and many have very specific methods of popping that are the trigger for their stimulation.
A Non Popper is concerned with the aesthetic appeal of an inflated balloon and will take care in their playing to insure that the balloons remain intact for as long as possible. The longevity of a particular balloon improves their sexual interaction with them.
Some Looners admit that the use of balloons, at an early age, for the purposes of masturbation, closely associated balloons with their first experiences of sexual pleasure anf post-orgasmic fulfilment.
Globophilia is related to other fetishes involving objects, such as shoe fetishism, rubber and latex fetishes.
