Question Mylar/foil balloons?
Thoughts on mylar/foils? Do they turn you on as much as a latex balloon would or are you not into them?

Mylar/foil don't really do anything for me. Something about the feel, smell, and sound of latex just makes it much more appealing. Plus, there's always the slight fear/excitement that the latex balloon might pop due to it's fragile nature. The fear of the loud bang is part of the fun for me! I've never really had any mylar balloon have the same affect on me as latex.

Mylar/foil balloons....

Yes they absolutely are special to me
I'm a balloon enthusiast & love balloons in all forms. That being said I also loooove helium! I cant get enough of the stuff! & being showered in balloons growing up, the very fact they contained helium as well as floated was a huge turn on for me.
I'd ride & play & watch them float for hours in my room! Hell, when i was younger I dreamed of floating like a balloon all the time,lol! I remember I'd stuff my jammies with as many mylar/foil balloons as I could squeeze hoping I'd somehow float up to the ceiling of my room,ha,ha! But alas...it never happened....physics & all... ;-)
But way back when I used to have popping fears, the thing I loved about mylar/ foils was that one never had to worry about sudden pops or being snapped as they are tough as nails! Hey we're talking the same stuff used for extreme thermal protection on the looner....'scuse me, the lunar excursion module. That's right! All that gold stuff covering the Eagle was essentially mylar /foil balloon material! Yes we flew to the moon wrapped in balloons. ...HA!
But way before I became a semi popper/ popper I knew the beauty of mylar/foil balloons was that they failed in much the same way inflatables do. Either by seem blowouts, tearing or slow leaks you could ride down. But not impossible to pop if you're rough enough with them. They do have a tiny bit of stretch but not as much as an inflatable & nowhere close to that of a latex balloon.
But I moved on & graduated to big boy balloons, but every now & then I'll still play with mylar/foils if they are around!
In fact I nearly cried when I had brought some mylar/foil balloons to my ex's house to share with her & she cried out, " Foil balloons stink!" I said something really dumb like, " Yeah, well... so does your face!"
But long story short, yes! I love 'em! & always will... ;-)

Haha, same! Foils are great and especially with helium, the way they float too is a big turn on for me. I grab a few mylar/foils whenever I can and even better if I can get them inflated with helium, I'd love to get a tank of it and have a play.

I love all loons but heliums and foils are way better to me, especially the big ones - you can get 32" and 36" mylar/foils, they really do it for me.

Floating with helium like you said would be really cool too, I've always dreamt of doing it but I'd need a lot of helium and some pretty big

The Mylar ones don't really do anything for me.

They're fun, but I prefer latex no doubt.

@Big Balloons, I also love mylars, but problem is they are USUALLY more expensive then latex and PVC inflatables, and wear out much quicker in warmer humid climates like Sydney. Also just a personal kink, but I only like mylar balloons when they are still brand new in their shrinkwrapping from the factory. When taken out for the first time, the really smooth silky feel of the mylar pushes me pretty hard. Already before I start blowing them up, the sensation of my hand handling the mylar immediately out of the wrapping starts giving me hard boners. Loose mylars often come badly packed with damage to the foil layers, meaning they lack the smooth soft silky feel of shrinkwrapped balloons.

I recently bought a large batch of 28 inch Miami Dolphin Jersey balloons, simply because the shape design has several negative curves. When blown up nice and firm, I love digging my fingers into those curves and hearing that mylar scrunch - absolute pure euphoric bliss.

I go through moments where I prefer a helium mylar over regular blown up latex balloons. Lately I have been in a mylar kick. Tug on their ribbon watch them bob around. Let them go and watch them gentle bop on the ceiling. Bring em down and ride and grind listen to it crinkle and squeak...will it pop? The squeakyness of a protesting mylar balloon gets me going big time lol is it hot in here or what!

I also love all those shapes and prints. I love the girly/cutesy kinds, similar to my favorite latex ones . Bright pastel colors, especially pinks. Valentine, hearts, love yous, baby and bridal showers, princesses, and especially any mylar you can see through!

Thinking i may pick up a mylar on my way home for some fun later!

Not for me personally but can appreciate others' feelings towards them!
