Thread: For the older Guys and Gals

    Growing up in 50ís and 60ís I thought I was the only one, a freak of nature belonging in a sideshow. It was very difficult for me.

    First hint that there were others was in 72 or 73 when I came across a letter in Penthouse from a guy claiming his girlfriend was into diapers. Then a few years later I saw a picture in Fetish Times of a girl who had supposedly wet her shorts. These helped, but I was still alone in my interest.

    I finally began to come to terms with my interest in the early eighties when I obtained a PO Box and began answering/running personal ads in Nugget, Fetish Times and DPF. Over the ensuing years I corresponded with dozens of likeminded folks, male and female, from around the world. A few of my correspondence relationships lasted for years going way beyond the shared interest that initially brought us together. Although that phase of my life is over, Iíll never forget a couple of the pen pals that brought so much light into my life.

    Like everyone else back then who wore diapers, I felt different from an early age. It didn't help that I also had actual accidents usually in regular underwear. My mom would always say I would stop wanting to wear diapers when I started dating, but that didn't happen. I was really hoping it would.

    I used to look through the major department store catalogs when I was a pre-teen and it was probably around 11 when I realized there was a market for larger diapers and, therefore, people who needed them. I think that blew my mind because I had always worn toddler size pampers (eventually modified once I could not fit in them properly) and, of course, my parents weren't going to buy me diapers that actually fit me. I used to dream about that. A lot. A diaper that actually fit. By the time I was 15, I was wearing Surecare and Ambeze disposables. Not very thick and prone to leaks, but they fit!

    During my undergraduate studies (during the mid 80's), I majored in psychology at a large university. I would read case studies in psych literature about people who wore diapers. They were usually classified as deviants and came to the attention of a psychiatrist largely because of being busted by the law. This didn't sit well with me because I felt surely not everyone who wore diapers or just wanted to wear diapers was a creep. I definitely knew I was different, but not in a creepy dysfunctional way.

    I was in Montreal in 1990 when I stumbled into an answer. I picked up a Penthouse letters magazine in a drug store and found an entire section devoted to diaper play and sex. I was blown away. It was over-the-top sure, but here were somewhat normal people who wore diapers because they got pleasure from the experience in a very adult way. After that, and even though I was somewhat shocked and disgusted by them, I ended up going to a few adult book stores to find more magazines depicting adults wearing diapers. I remember picking up a copy of Diapered and Dominated and I think that led to an eventual subscription with DPF. To say that younger abdls have it good today with the ubiquitous internet is an understatement.

    Heck, besides the internet there are a lot of things better today. Look at all the childish adult attire there is in stores today. And, today's diapers are soooo much better than the diapers 25 + years ago. And, then there's ADISC. Thank you, Moo.

    holy crap, I think I ran into the same article then as well, 'Penthouse Variations' was there also an article involving gray paint in the same publication?

    in the late 80's, there were lots of BBSs floating around (pre internet, with a 2400 baud modem), including one of my own invention 'Odessius Axis' (ANSI graphic of a rotating world), and lots of black and white hand scanned porn and pirated software, including the BBS software itself. I very quickly got out of that bit when coming within a hair's breadth of major trouble for hacking... left computers behind for about 7 years afterward)
    I remember doing makeshifts as early as 1986
    I remember my first exposure where there were others out there was that 1990 publication (where I was a new private in the Army, my seargent removed the magazine upon discovery, damn it) did that publication also involve an article with lots of gray paint?

    Many years later.. thinking that 'I can't be alone' pulled up DPF on an internet search. I hung out there for a couple of years until the site dissolved due to a lack of moderaters (did Tommy check out?) a few years later, I did a new search on the subject, and have been here ever since

    I never did find out there were others like myself out there until doing a diligent search on the net around 2005 and joining TBDL (now ADISC). I always looked at other people's reactions around baby things over the preceeding years to see if there was a hint of unusual interest or attraction...but never noticed any. Always wondered what made me feel this way towards baby gear items, however just dealt with it best I could. Had no idea where to even begin looking since adult book stores weren't my cup of tea.

    Yes. Crazy we both saw that. It was Penthouse Variations. I don't remember gray paint. I didn't even read the other articles just the ones about adult babies. There was also an ad in that magazine for an adult baby mail-order place (similar to DPF) in New Jersey. I don't remember the name of it though.

    DPF had a pretty big slice of the market (from what I remember) prior to the internet. I did go on DPF when it went online and mostly used their links page. Shortly thereafter, it went downhill fast with Tommy's failing health. I think he passed away sometime in the mid-2000's though I don't know exactly when.

    There are two incidents that stand out in my mind.

    The first one was in 1976. I was on a road trip with my older brother and on one of our stops at a convenience store, he picked up a couple of smut magazines. I was a closeted gay (in denial, but that's another thread) but I had to flip through them, wanting to give the appearance of a horny, hetero teenager.

    I forget the title of the magazine, but it had a picture of a man in a diaper and plastic pants, and a woman in a diaper sitting in a high chair. There was a short paragraph beside it about kinky adults wearing baby clothes and diapers and actually using the diapers. OHMYGAWD!!! It was the first time I realized there were others like me... somewhere.

    The second incident came about twenty years ago. I was reading The Advocate, an American gay magazine. It's a news magazine about gay issues and at the back there was a classified section. I saw a small ad, something about a 'diaper guy' and an address to contact for products and more information. I had no idea what it was about but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to find out. I sent them a request by mail to send me any information they had.

    Several weeks later, I received a twenty page brochure in an anonymous envelope. It was from something called Diaper Pail Friends and it was the most amazing thing I had ever seen in my life. There were lots of photos, drawings, advertisements of diapers, plastic pants, videos. These were things that I always wished for but never knew they existed or where I would be able to find them.

    In some ways it only reinforced my loneliness. Although I would have loved to have ordered some (well, tons) of the items in the brochure, I was too chicken to take the risk, since the items would have to be mailed across the border and subject to inspection. I was so afraid that if that happened, they would come after me for pornography or pedophilia. I had no idea what anyone would think of it since I was so isolated as a DL and feared possibly being arrested.

    So it was a great feeling to know I wasn't a freak, or at least not the only one, but it actually made it harder because I wasn't able to connect with anybody who had the same interests.

    I've been a DL for fifty years now (started as a young child). I should be an old pro at it. The truth is it's been a very lonely, isolated experience. Having just got my first computer six months ago, I'm still learning the terminology and occasionally putting my foot in my mouth but I'm catching up, and damn, I envy the younger people who are growing up with the internet. What I wouldn't give to have had this resource when I was growing up. What a difference it would have made to realize I wasn't alone.
