There are also individuals who wear diapers but do not act as infants, either diaper lovers who eroticize diaper wearing, or sadomasochists who use diapers as a way of enforcing dominance and submission. Though the categories are discrete, in practice the behaviors found in each group often overlap. In this latter instance the mode of arousal is masochistic. The most frequent activities were wearing diapers, wetting, and using other baby items. Definitions[ edit ] The conventional definition of infantilism means the persistence of childlike traits in adults and medically the failure to attain sexual maturity,  and "sexual infantilism" is also used medically as a synonym for delayed puberty. For example, if the infantile role playing does not involve feelings of humiliation and suffering, then the diagnosis of sexual masochism would not be appropriate and a diagnosis of infantilism as a paraphilia [not otherwise specified] is warranted.
Meet Taboo Fantasy Lives' Stanley Thornton, the 'adult baby' | Daily Mail Online
Up until , there were only three published case studies on infantilism all in the American Journal of Psychiatry between and Malitz reported a case of a year-old college student who had a compulsion to wear nappies underneath rubber pants and defecate in them although did not see himself as an adult baby. Tuchman and Lachman reported the case of a father who was arrested for molesting his young daughters. Like the first case, he wore rubber pants over his nappy and enjoyed urinating and masturbating in it. Dinello reported the case of a year-old male who in his mid-teens started wearing nappies under his clothing, drank from baby bottles, and ate baby food, and masturbated while wearing the nappy. In a issue of the Medical Journal of Australia, Pettit and Barr published the case of year-old man who began dressing in female clothes at the age of 10 years and by the age of 15 years began to dress as a baby and developed a fetish for nappies.
But contrary to what you probably thought, those people didn't merely slap on those diapers to make some porn. There are "adult babies" who dress like babies, act like babies, and joyfully shit themselves like babies. And no, it's not just to give you something freaky to masturbate to. We spoke to several of these people using fake names to find out what the hell is going on.
To be clear, those in the ABDL community are not interested in sexual contact with children or babies, as some people mistakenly believe, but are interested in items and activities related to behaving like or pretending to be children. Saying that people who identify as ABDL are misunderstood and maligned would be a colossal understatement. For those reasons, the mere existence of Tykables, which offers all three, is something of a marvel. Tell me about the typical Tykables customer. Our storefront is no different than our actual brand.
