I have never been much of a DL. Most of what I like about diapers that isn't from AB is from the sensory feeling of them. What sexual feelings I do have about them tie in strongly with my interest in BDSM.
However... I find that when I am padded, other stuff that does turn me on, turns me on more. Stuff which gets me horny, gets me hornier when wearing a diaper - even though the diaper itself isn't what turns me on. It's like a sexual catalyst, making the sexual reaction to something I find hot faster and more powerful.
For an (extreme) example - something has made me feel mentally horny without a physical reaction. I felt like getting padded so I did - still no sexual reaction. I go back to this thing before that I found mentally exciting and almost immediately I've got an erection.
Can anyone think of a reason that this would happen? Do any of you have something that, while it itself isn't sexual for you, it makes other things you do find sexual more so? Or am I the only one who has experienced this..?
