El Pasoan’s Balloon Fetish Featured on TLC’s ‘My Strange Addiction’
And I thought my co-worker Monika's addiction to sniffing erasers was weird. A 62-year-old El Pasoan named Julius has an addiction strange enough to get him on the latest season of TLC's "My Strange Addiction". Julius is attracted to balloons and has been for over five decades now. And, yes, his love for the “beautiful, soft, smooth, delicate” rubber party decoration is a sexual one.
“When I see a beautiful balloon my heart starts to flutter and I get aroused,” Julius says about his, um, preference. Don't judge! Julius says it's just like a “guy that prefers blondes or brunettes!” Yup. Just like that. Only, not. Go ahead, press play. You know your revulsion is surpassed only by your curiosity.
