Balloon Knot is a slang term for a person's anus that's used online and in memes across social media. The "balloon knot" Urban Dictionary definition was often referenced in viral discourse about the term, leading to "Don't Google" discussions on Twitter, TikTok and elsewhere over the years. Inherently, the anus-to-balloon-knot comparison is a visual comparison in that the two look similar due to circular wrinkles.


The term "balloon knot" was first added to Urban Dictionary on April 17th, 2002, by Urban Dictionary[1] user father O, who wrote, "if you spread open the knot of a balloon, the resultant view is similar to that of the anus." The definition received over 810 likes and 750 dislikes in 21 years (shown below).

we're speedrunning the opposite of how Victorians invented euphemisms to obfuscate sexual language. now we're intentionally diving straight into a world where quite literally every word is interchangeable with sex and it's really not remotely clever or funny at this point, it's just sad and vaguely weird. I say this as someone who also gets very easily annoyed by internet puritans and prudes, but speaking honestly: what is the value of this tik-tok "every innocuous phrase is actual code for sex" bullshit? you guys do know you can straight up just, like, talk about sex using the already existing terms… right?

If they're teenagers that didn't grow up on the old web, they might genuinely not be aware of it. Modern social media will shadowban you for it and it's not like they can talk about it in school.
