As far as fetish genres go, Looning/Inflatables fetish is probably one of the most misunderstood. Misunderstand may be the wrong verb. It’s not that people understand the practice incorrectly, most just don’t understand it at all. RubYourToy is the Number 1 Inflatables studio on Clips4Sale.com, the home of all things fetish. So we figured we’d ask the man behind the studio to explain to us why he likes to rub his inflatable toy?
MonthlyFetish.com is all about bringing people and fetish together and explaining aspects of the fetish lifestyle that people may not understand. With that in mind, could you explain to our readers what inflatables fetish is, and maybe more pertinently, what inflatables fetish is to you personally, and when you knew it was something that you were interested in?
Rocco: Hello and a Happy New Year 2018!
Of course, I can try to explain my point of view, but I think it will be different for everyone. The inflatable fetish is the fetish for inflatable things like swimming rings, beach balls, air mattresses, or huge inflatable animals or objects. It’s about the material, the different forms, the smell, the joy of breathing life into it or withdrawing it; to have power over the object and to be able to burst it. It is about making the inflatables as tight as possible but still be able to ride them; to push the limits of each inflatable.
It started as a teenager. I do not remember exactly the exact age. I was with my parents on a beach on the Baltic Sea and next to me was a pretty Lady inflating a beach ball and an air mattress with her mouth. A shiver of excitement ran through my body and I couldn’t look away. So I quickly bought my own air mattress and I blew it up and went swimming every day, which I enjoyed very much. I began to love the material, the shape and the ability to inflate it.
I see different categories within the genre, most notably Pop, Non-Pop, and Blow. What are the differences and are they all mutually exclusive of each other, or as an inflatophile, is it possible to enjoy all three?
Rocco: I wouldn’t divide it into different categories. All inflatables have to be inflated. It’s fun to do it yourself, but it can be very exciting when someone else does it and you can watch it. I like it a lot if the person doesn’t know that she is being watched. I think every inflatable lover got his favorite piece that he would never pop. It surely has happened to everyone before, after blowing up the inflatable too hard, that it has burst unexpectedly. In this case, one can find many helpful instructions on the internet to fix the favorite piece.
Digging a little deeper, and forgive me if you’ve answered this in a previous question, but could you explain to us a little more about the nature of the attraction to inflatables? Is it the feel of the toy inflating as you blow, or the sound as it deflates, maybe it’s the smell of rubber or the feel of the toy against the skin? Are these all legitimate aspects of the fetish? What are others?
Rocco: As I said, I think I cannot speak for everyone. It’s the design, the colors and the different shapes. The rareness of the inflatable plays a big role. There are many collectors and really many very rare pieces or one-offs. There are tuned floating rings and stretched animals. You can always discover new things.
It feels great to be lifted by inflating or sinking into the inflatable by deflating. It’s great to inflate and push inflatables to their limits and find the point just before they pop. Part of the fetish is also to test how much they are able to withstand the pressure or the adrenaline that spreads when the inflatable pops with a loud bang.
I think I saw a comment in an online forum somewhere that indicated that Poppers and Non-Poppers were fundamentally opposed to each other, and that there is no love lost between the two camps for what they enjoy doing with inflatable toys and balloons. Is this true? Is there animosity between poppers and non-poppers?
Rocco: I wouldn’t say that. I would rather call it lack of understanding. I get a lot of emails with wishes, often I get sent inflatables, which they really want me to pop. Of course I do, even though it is not easy for me on some inflatables. Of course, the reactions are quite different – incomprehension, anger or applause. But I’ve never been badly insulted. And well, my storage space is crammed full of inflatables so that you have to pop something to make room for something new.
Is the inflatables fetish community growing? I seem to think I’m seeing more and more of inflatables fetish everywhere, online, social media etc. Is it a fetish that’s on the rise, and if so why do you think that is?
Rocco: We are a small community. Sometimes people join in, some go away and some people are curious and only want to have a look and test. I notice it on my YouTube channel, the number of visits always remained the same and my YouTube subscriptions are consistent.
Of course, I would be happy if our community grows and more people discover the love for inflatables.
Forgive me but there’s a question I have to ask, and it’s on the subject of blow up or inflatable dolls. Is this essentially the same fetish as inflatables? I mean, do people get into it for the same reasons?
Rocco: Unfortunately, I don’t know anything about that. I haven’t tried that myself yet. The dolls that have been on the market in recent years have simply not been appealing enough; the design is awful and uninspiring. But I’ve noticed that a lot has happened in the market lately, but unfortunately the prices are not yet affordable for many people. Let’s see what the time brings, I’m very excited.
I checked out your Clips4Sale studio and I found an inflatophile’s dream. You’ve almost a thousand inflatables fetish clips alone. When did you hear about Clips4Sale and how did the C4S studio come about?
Rocco: Unfortunately there are not yet 1000. I offer many clips in 2 different formats, currently Full HD and 4k. For 5 years now I’ve been shooting inflatable videos. On the 1st of January 2018, the 6th year starts. Ninety hours of inflatables videos. I first heard about Clips4sale.com at the erotic fair in Berlin. At this show I also met David from ClubSteffi.com. We became friends, he taught me a lot and since that time we work together. I gathered information about Clips4sale.com and started the Clips4Sale studio and half a year later, my member site got launched.
As a Producer making content that the inflatables/looner community buys, what type of clips do you find are the most popular, and do you think that reflects what’s popular in the community at the time?
Rocco: I receive many emails and wishes. I try to implement these in the best possible way. These wishes are very different. The most popular are the clips, in which two or more girls play together, argue and pop something big. And of course, water is a big issue in inflatable videos and should not be forgotten. Unfortunately, these shootings are limited, because in Germany we only have a very short summer. I just try to shoot with girls who enjoy it; some are friends or acquaintances of mine. Very important to me personally is that the girls enjoy shooting and have fun inflating or riding inflatables in front of the camera.
Is there an ultimate inflatable? I mean, do you look at a Bouncy Castle and think wow? I’m joking obviously but personally speaking, is there one thing that you like to inflate that trumps all others?
Rocco: Personally, I like the big inflatables, but I hate folding them up and so I only blow up the small ones. My basement is full of inflatables. There are many beautiful pieces, but I don‘t have a favorite, even though the unicorn from Horseplay Inflatable, already has a special place. But I still have a wish, inflatable jackets and pants. Once I came across a jacket on eBay, transparent and inflatable and I am still angry with myself that I missed to buy it.
How do you see your Clips4Sale Studio and the fetish of inflatables developing over the next few years?
Rocco: That’s a tough question. I hope we’ll make it to no. 1 in the Top 50 on page 1. No, just kidding. I hope that my fans will continue to enjoy my videos and that everyone finds something compelling. Of course, I am also happy about everyone who discovers our fetish and enriches the community. For myself, I wish that I have a little more time for my supporters, to answer emails promptly and that they do not have to wait so long.
Are you on social media and if so where can people follow you and keep up to date with what you are doing?
Rocco: Of course, I’m present in social media. There is always a trailer on YouTube with the latest videos and from time to time some free clips.
