An adult baby is a grown-up person who pretends to be an infant. Some people play the role of a baby all the time while some do it occasionally. This behavior is a natural fetish or a syndrome called Paraphilic Infantilism.
Some people feel sexually aroused by playing the role of a baby, while some feel nothing sexual. Nonsexual members of the ABDL community simply like the feeling of being an infant. They prefer to embrace it without attributing any sexual behavior to it.
Scroll through this blog to read more about this syndrome and how it feels to be an ABDL!
The study of ABDL is unique, intimate, and varied. There are people with ABDL fetish who are content with just wearing diapers. However, there are cases where a person needs to urinate or defecate in their diaper to feel sexually aroused.
There have been numerous instances where ABDL developed out of parental rejection in childhood. However, there is no definite scientific reason behind this fetish. ABDL can also be the result of an abnormal love map.
Love maps normally develop around eight years of age, but sometimes uncertain incidents or stress can alter the love map of an individual. Imprinting can also cause ABDL. Simply put, if an individual lacks a satisfying sex life, any olfactory or visual activity can seem arousing to them.
There have been multiple ABDL cases to prove that each individual can have a distinct fetish. For example, in an old case of 1967, a man could not orgasm unless he was in his diapers. Similarly, an adult aged 57 hallucinated that his wife changed his diapers while playing the role of his mother.
Some ABDL adults are also known to indulge in child-like activities like bottle-feeding, playing, sucking on a teether, and more.
Imagine being a regular office-goer and coming home to a partner that has no idea about this syndrome. It can be difficult, humiliating, and can even lead to severe self-doubt. Being a person of the ABDL community can be a hard fact to accept.
People with an ABDL fetish often hesitate before sharing this side of theirs with their families or partners. There are even times when they get abandoned by their loved ones who cannot accept this fetish.
On a positive note, ABDL is being studied extensively and has started gaining community confidence. There are adult nurseries that assist adult babies and allow them the space to embrace themselves.
ABDL adults have different ways of satisfying their fetish. Some like to play dirty in bed while they indulge in a role-play before intercourse, while some like to explore their intimacy singularly.
An ABDL adult can fantasize about countless things like being in a nappy-punishment situation, getting intimate with a nanny, or being dominated by a “mommy” figure. The possibilities are endless!
ABDL adults are normal adults. Their minds just work differently when it comes to ideas of fun and pleasure. The ABDL community has received an outpouring of support from people, including various companies that design adult diapers to aid this syndrome.
While this might seem like an absurd fetish to many, it is important to be sensitive towards someone who has it. For those with an ABDL fetish, acceptance and self-love are the strongest pillars of motivation.
