For me, even though I'm an AB, the emotional pleasures I get from it are intertwined with the sexual pleasures I get from it. While there do seem to be a lot of people who are similar, I've heard some people say there's not a sexual element to their *Bism (or that it's very minimal).
So my question is for these people, since I have a hard time picturing what it's like to be a *B with no sexual desires for it. And the question is...how is your *Bism different than just a hobby? (Other than the fact that it's not accepted by society in general the way most hobbies are).
I ask this because it seems to me that if I removed the sexual side of my ABism, it would almost be more like an activity I engage in. But I tend to talk about hobbies more in terms of what I do...I say that I play video games, not that I'm a gamer. But with *Bism, most people tend to identify it as a part of who they are rather than something they do...they ARE a *B, they don't "do baby stuff".
Just a random thought that intrigued me.
