Looners & Balloonophiles – Folks with a fetish for balloons.
Licking, bouncing, inflating, wearing, diving in, inserting, rubbing, popping…
Read more about it after the jump (including a video).
There is a great debate raging across the globe: the poppers vs. the rubbers. You see, some balloon fetishists believe it is violent, offensive and disturbing for a Looner to enjoy ever so slowly inflating a balloon only to get off on popping it. Meanwhile, poppers dismiss rubbers and riders as wimps who prefer to keep their inflatables in one piece so they can rub on them, insert them into their clothing (or selves), make that screechy sound with their fingers, thighs or shoes, and other activities that can safely keep their balloon intact.
As you can see, there is no one unified Looner community. Some like ’em tiny, like a ball pit. Other want a bigger one each time, perhaps even one large enough to climb onto with a few friends. Still others are happy to see a lady or gentleman covered in medium balloons from head to toe, bouncing and jiggling through the room. Is it the taste, smell, texture, or anticipation? It depends on the Looner. Regardless, all dedicated Looners know to keep the oil-based lubes away from their latex lovers (unless you want your lube to degrade your balloon), and most know that sliding your balloons in the oven first will make them stretchier. Latex isn’t required, but mylar seems to be a big no-no.
While I can’t say I’ve tried balloon kink, I will share that I was once at an event where two women came wiggling and swaying into the room in colorful balloon suits. The crowd (including everyone from vanilla hairdressers to models to hardcore leather daddies) parted immediately with gasps of awe, and you can be sure they were treated to free drinks and loads of admiration all night. At the end, as the bouncers were clearing the event, several lucky partiers got to pop each balloon to squeals of delight!
