Topic: Balloon up zee nose.
Message: Posted by: Rupert Bair (Jan 9, 2009 05:39PM)
I've been working on this all night.

I keep having to pull it out soon after its all the way down in the throat before the gag reflex starts to do its bit.

I can't reach for the end with out starting to gag.

I've been putting it down, with out reaching for it and breathing calmly. I keep wanting to swallow and that pushes the other end out a bit each time.

Any tips? Is it one of those things to keep practising until its comfortable?


P.S An old thread indicated Mr Robbins invented the use of the balloon usage in the nose? If it is yours Todd do you mind others using it?

I think a small fee is usually required......the act is certainly worth it!!! PM Mr. Robbins for info......he also teaches in NYC.

In my experence, it never gets comfortable...
Like swallowing swords never feels good.
One night is way too soon to be feeling like you seem to be feeling.

A give it a week - "seven days, seven times a day" as some old stories go.

For me, I floss in one nostral and out the other...


Good luck,

Thanks Steve, surely you stopped gagging though? Even if it still feels uncomfortable?
Message: Posted by: Freak Prodigy (Jan 9, 2009 10:08PM)
You don't really ever just stop gagging. You learn to control it enough to do what you need to do.

I remember watching on csi once about smiling stopping the gag reflex. I think it was a lie. It didn't work.

I don't believe T.V anymore :(

Sarah Sidle said it, and she's quite cute, I want to know why she had to lie to me.

Yeah, smiling stops you from gagging, yeah, sure. that's it.

I no longer believe in forensic science, and Sarah Sidle. I still have hopes for Grissom. Why did she lie to me Brett?
Message: Posted by: Freak Prodigy (Jan 9, 2009 10:20PM)
Cause she's a Y3VudA== . That's why.

And that's the geekiest thing I've laughed at all week. Actually what day is it? Oops, make that in the last 3 days.

And so is Grissom for that matter.

You should be watching American TV anyway. When I was in your parts, I enjoyed TV much more.
Message: Posted by: Rupert Bair (Jan 9, 2009 10:29PM)
I only watch American tv, very few English tv shows that I enjoy. The office, extras and life on mars. I think that's it for recent things.

How did you get on in Olde England?

Anyway to keep this from being off topic...ummm....what colour* balloon should I use?


I like it in here, I should visit more.
Message: Posted by: Freak Prodigy (Jan 9, 2009 10:37PM)
Yeah, this is a good section.

Don't use white. that's the color some dude uses.

Went off great in England, got to hang out with Pete Firman
( TXkgYXNzIG1haW50YWlucyB0aGUgdGl0bGUgb2YgIkhhaXJpZXN0IEFzcyBJbiBTaG93IEJpeiI= )
and I visited Davenports.

I liked the audiences there, a lot.

I cant remember the name of the show, but it seemed like a teen show, but every line of it was sexual innuendo. I liked it. Really hokey.
Message: Posted by: Juliegel (Jan 10, 2009 02:00AM)
In my experience with this stunt I have learned a couple helpful tips.

1. Try not to yank the balloon out. I understand that it feels weird but yanking anything through your face can't be good.

2. Keep your fingers as low as possible when you go back to get the balloon.

Really that is all I feel comfortable saying on a public forum. I do suggest talking to Todd. He is a wealth of knowledge and a very nice guy.

Several Brit shows are sexual innuendo, check out my favorite brit show Are You Being Served? for prime examples.... [i]and I am unanimous in that.[/i]

On top of that, Brett seems to have entered "techno-geekdome" of late...
he is becomming ASCII. (Base 64 my butt, more like base 2!)

But nicely encoded in any case...

Such bad words from such a nice guy...

And while we are on the topic of Butts... why do we really care about the title of yours?

Yes, visit here more often...

Rupert.. I believe you should go with a Union Jack coloured baloon.

A 160 preferably,use that to learn.

Thanks for all the tips and help so far guys! Juliegel, thank you!

Your very welcome but be careful.

You might try drinking some ice water before you attempt it. It will decrease the sensation a bit. Worked for me!

Message: Posted by: MarkTirone (Jan 21, 2009 03:40PM)
How are you reaching for it? When you retrieve the balloon, use just your first and secod fingers like scissors to clip the balloon and pull it slightly to the side of your mouth to maneuver past your uvula. The two fingers push down your tounge and gives you more room. Try having your sinuses cleaned out. That can do it. You might have too much mucus in your nasal passage. I had a sinus infection while performing this effect so it was much more difficult to practice and once I had my sinuses cleaned out I did it much easier. There is a kit you can buy at CVS to clean out your nasal passage.

And nips does a great nail for htat as well - I think he can make you one wiht a little chimney sweeps brush on the end of it as well....... :) Or some use thier finger.

And why hte hell are you talkin g baout hte vulva surely its no where near the nasal passage ....... well I admit there may be some positions but......
