I wrote about the trending adult diaper situation in Japan a few weeks ago which I thought was an odd Japanese anomaly, but in researching the situation I learned that the adult diaper fet*sh is all the rage everywhere.
First we started to notice we were getting quite a bit of referral traffic from an amazing french website called www.abkingdom.com (the site is in and of itself a mega-situation), and I was taken aback by the seriousness with which DL’s took their hobby. I certainly did not mean to offend anyone by labeling it a “situation”, but quite honestly I just did not understand what was going on. I needed an education in this enigmatic affair.
Clearly, in Japan woman were wearing diapers, not because they were incontinent but because they enjoyed it and were even excited by it. Japan even had adult diaper fashion shows for diaper fet*sh*sts.
But it looks like Japan is not the only country to embrace this new fad. There are diaper forums everywhere.
There are diaper lover dating sites. There are diaper chat sites. There are even diaper communities within religious communities.
Obviously there is a power dynamic happening and experts say sexual attraction is about a power inequality.
Apparently the term for these individuals is Diaper Lover. And it doesn’t mean the individual wants to be treated like an infant (although something deeply subconscious must be going on here), but merely that they get gratification out of wearing a diaper.
For some it’s the simple feeling of comfort. For others they enjoy the feeling and crinkling sounds associated with it. Any way around it, it is amazing that this is happening in such mass and that it is a growing situation.
In Japan it appeared that the public embarrassment gave users a rush. The idea of being in public and people potentially noticing the diaper is a high for DL’s. I suppose it’s the fear of getting caught or ridiculed by others that provides such an adrenaline filled experience to the user.
I used to work downtown in San Diego and there was a guy we called “diaper man”. He was very wealthy and accomplished, but he liked walking around in a diaper and a white T-shirt (no pants). It always perplexed me why anyone would so blatantly and intentionally humiliate them self, but it is starting to make more sense.
So what is going on in our world that everyone just seems to want to strap on a diaper? Why the collective embrace of total submission and public humiliation? Has everyone just had enough?
