I just wanted to post today and ask a serious question to like minded individuals. We all have something in common on this forum, our like of diapers. I would like to ask a question in all seriousness. How do you feel about our countries acceptance of fetishes. Do you think that infantalism, or the ab/dl lifestyle will take on an aire of mainstream paraphilism? How do you think that our lifestyle/fetish/need can co-exist with the quid-pro-quo? Do you believe that we are taboo, or breaking existing social norms? How do you see youself in contrast to mainstream American culture?
I would love to think that America today is a country far evolved from the mindset of our founders. That sexuality and the expression of fetishes is an accepted practice. Wherever you are in America, you'll find shops that pander to the sexuality of men and women, sex shops to be precise. Have you ever seen an adult diaper in a sex shop however?
In recent years, infantalism has become a list of paraphilias (fetishes) on the APA's (American Psychological Association) official "list". It is not considered medical condition, mental illness or manic depressive behavior. It is, simply, a fetish.
I just want to ask you what your take is on our shared interest, whatever you tihink... good, bad or indifferent. Look at it in comparison to other fetishes. Do you think there are as many people practicing infantalism as there are practicing exhibitionism or voyeurism?
