Feet, leather, dragons - all common fetishes.
If you're into any of the above, you no doubt will have had little difficulty seeking out your own little community of like-minded people. But have you ever looked at a balloon and thought, 'phwoooar, I fancy a bit of that'?
If so, you're not alone. Maggy BerLoon, 31, has been having sex with balloons for more than a decade and describes it as 'a hell of a lot of bouncy fun'.
Now, before we continue, I should break some disappointing news - BerLoon is not her birth surname. Hope that hasn't burst your bubble/balloon.
But hey, she still has sex with balloons, which is pretty interesting.
Maggy, from Solingen, Germany, identifies as a 'looner' and says balloons of all shapes and sizes can be incorporated in the bedroom in all manner of ways.
She first got into the fetish after meeting her husband, Jan, with whom she owns Balloons United - which is a balloon retailer, not a football team.
Maggy says balloons get looners off for all different reasons, though she says the risk the balloons may pop adds extra excitement for her.
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 any time, unwanted or provoked. This characteristic can add a lot of excitement and thrill to the interaction."
Yes, I've always thought balloons to be a dangerous mistress.
Maggy added: "It's all about enjoying your life to its fullest, whatever this means individually - of course, if it's legal and doesn't harm anybody.
"To summarise it shortly, it's a hell of a lot of bouncy fun."
Don't want your life to be too full though, do we Maggy? Otherwise it might burst... though I suppose that risk is thrilling to her.
But hey, there could be something in it. Why not see for yourself and whip a balloon out next time there's a bit of static in the boudoir?
