If you find it difficult to buy balloons here is some advice.
If you have the balloon fetish then it can be embarrassing to walk into a shop
to buy balloons - it is very easy to be very aware of the reason for the purchase
all the time you are in the shop.
It is common for balloon fetishists to give a reason for their purchase to the
shopkeeper without even being asked - or at least having a false reason ready just
in case the shopkeeper makes a comment about the size or quantity of balloons being
bought - this makes the situation feel more normal - less embarrassing for the
person buying the balloons.
In fact it is mostly unnecessary to make any comments at all - the shopkeeper
obviously stocked the balloons - whatever size or shape they are - with the idea
that people would buy some of them from time to time... and that is exactly what
you are doing - so this should not arouse any suspicions - in fact there is no
reason for a conversation about them at all - usually a conversation takes
place between a shopkeeper and a customer simply out of politeness - and the usual
subjects are all the normal ones - the weather - the football - and the shopkeeper
will naturally be interested in your purchases - it's his business to find out if
he could sell you more of anything - so the natural question ' why are you buying
so many large balloons ' or the guess type of question - ' are you having a big party
then ' are perfectly normal ways in which the shopkeeper will try to make
conversation. If the shopkeeper has only bought fifty of the balloons you have chosen
- and you have just bought forty of them - he will want to know if you are going to
want this quantity every week or every month... or never again - he wants to know
if he needs to get some more from his suppliers.
Although more people are getting to know that the balloon fetish exists, it is
still not common knowledge, so it is unlikely that the shopkeeper is suspicious
of your purchase - and of course if he is then it is none of his business anyway
so it is extremely unlikely that anyone would ever ask you outright if there was
any sexual purpose for the balloons - other people get embarrassed about sexual
Often the best approach to buying balloons if you feel at all uncomfortable about
it is to say nothing about your purchase but to have a 'story' ready in case you
are asked why you are buying the balloons.
