OK some questions please:

When people talk of putting or sniffing things up their nose are they talking about the same way you do the Human Block Head? Once for fun I put a tubing in this way just to see what would happen (this was before my Magic Café days and I couldn't just ask people questions like these).

I remember it did coil down in my mouth. Is this the start to Brain Flossing? Please feel free to PM if you don't want to answer here about it. Thanks.

No the Blockhead uses the route over the mouth (at right angles to the nasal passage). The floss goes up the nose perpendicular then down to the back of the throat then coughed forward and out of the mouth. I don't think that you can floss via the Blockhead route. I may be wrong but never performed it that way OK.

Do some research. It's a little hard to sort through a lot of URLs but you can find the path. (Zen?) <G> Brain Flossing is exactly the same as Blockhead, but with a soft material (yarn, balloon, snake) that will bend down into the glottal passage to where you can reach into your mouth and pull out the end.

I should have mentioned where to start a search:

I have pretty much got control over the gag reflex now (using Qualatext balloons) but I find that the sensation of the balloon at the back of the mouth causes me to salivate (A LOT!). Does anyone else get this and will it pass with practice?

I have not found this happening myself, I should think that practice would cure it.

If I try this with a noodle would it be easy? I have most control over my gag reflex. I can shove two fingers down my throat, as well as spoon handle (holding tightly). My eyes water a little but that's it. Can someone refer me somewhere to learn this here or in a PM? Thanks. Smile

I might sound old fashioned; would anyone tell me why someone would actually do stuff like this?

Is it for fun?
Entertainment?

The concept makes me wonder Smile

Self achievement, for entertainment, not for fun...at least for me. Most of sideshow acts can get you seriously injured or even killed so you take every precaution to be safe and never take it lightly no matter how many times you have done it.

Ha ha ha!

I tried that with a condom once as well. Never again. It gave me the most severe headache for about an hour.

I'm gonna stick to my cups and balls...after a couple of times your nostrils get used to the tickle of the balls!!! Smile

First of all, I thought the condoms were made for other use, not for putting them in my nose.

Second, reading all your posts, reminds me the reason why I love cardmagic. Smile

All the best magic,

Providing you aren't putting anything rigid up there enough to puncture into your brain you should be safe sticking pliable and lubricated things up your nose m.s. Just make sure it's long enough to keep hold of one end so that you can extract it if you can't get it all the way through. Medics put adjuncts through peoples noses all the time to be able to ventilate someone if there are difficulties with the mouth.

Of course... I'm not one to do this effect. Just thought I'd throw my 2 cents in.
