Adult babies, also known as paraphilic infantilism, are one set of members in a larger group called the adult baby diaper lover ABDL community. The practice of adult baby play is unique for each individual, but commonly involves the practice of, or desire to regress into an infantile or childlike state and can include the use of baby toys, clothes, diapers, and other baby items.
Although it is considered a common sexual fetish, ABDL is not sexually motivated for all participants. Some receive gratification from BDSM-related practices within the adult baby lifestyle, others enjoy the feeling of being nurtured, and many gain satisfaction from a combination of ABDL behavior. ABDL activities within the community are different for every person, but certain baby items and practices are more common, such as the use of diapers and pacifiers. Diapers are one of the most commonly used baby items in the ABDL community, and they can serve multiple functions.
The physical feeling of a diaper can provide a sense of safety and security and represents one aspect of adult baby role-play. Diaper wearing for adult babies can mean wearing the diaper without using it, using the diaper while wearing, or discreetly wearing diapers in public. Some diaper wearers are interested in the physical sensation of wearing the diaper, and others enjoy the convenience of a diaper versus using the restroom. While some view diapers as an essential part of feeling like a baby, others who choose to defecate or urinate in their diapers can be sexually aroused by the feeling or smell of a soiled diaper.
Adult baby play often includes activities such as playing with toys, watching cartoons, and using other items associated with babies. In a recent survey, the most commonly named baby item was a pacifier, while other items included baby bottles, clothing, stuffed animals, sippy cups, cribs, or high chairs.
In addition, baby clothing and diapers made for adults can be found online at Tykables. Some adult babies build or buy adult baby furniture, clothing, and toys to construct a physical space to practice ABDL activities. Some participants use baby items for role-playing, but others only engage in age regression, either mentally or literally.
Online forums are a safe space for ABDL members to connect with each other and to anonymously engage with a virtual community. Using these forums, many ABDL members find partners, ask questions, and may find a pleasing activity to decrease daily stress. Since individual adult babies vary greatly in their preference activities, it is easier to imagine the ABDL community on a spectrum that also includes people who do not identify as babies.
Some diaper lovers and incontinent people use diapers for reasons unrelated to adult baby role-play and are more interested in the diaper itself. Other differentiations include partnered role-play, asexual ABDL individuals, and more. Not everyone who wears a diaper is an adult baby, although there can be some overlap.
Diaper lovers include people who wear diapers without a medical reason or enjoy watching others wear diapers, without the adult baby association. Diaper loving can be sexual or non-sexual. Non-sexual practices involve incontinent users who lack control over urination or defecation and wear diapers for medical necessity. Telling a partner about ABDL interests early in the relationship out of respect for both people was practiced in the ly mentioned study. According to Zamboni and Madero, asexual people within the ABDL community report greater levels of perceived importance regarding being a baby and lower levels of perceived importance regarding sexual excitement.
There are many common misconceptions when it comes to the ABDL community, the most common of which being the idea that ABDL participants have a sexual interest in real infants or children. This assumption is not true. ABDL behavior has nothing to do with actual infants and is more closely related to being in an infantile state of mind that brings comfort or relieves stress. Another misconception is that ABDL community members are mentally ill with their adult baby desires being the result of an illness. In reality, most people are not distressed by their ABDL behaviors; however, those who do report distress tend to be older and have been practicing ABDL longer when compared to participants who deny distress.
The ABDL community is a diverse group of individuals that includes adult babies, diaper lovers, incontinent people, and others with a distinct sexual fetish. ABDL can also be non-sexual, individual or partnered, and still provides space for asexual individuals to be represented. Misconceptions about the motivations of these groups are common, but the desire to regress into an infantile state and the use of baby items are common elements that accompany the comforts of the adult baby lifestyle.
