I almost posted this in the thread about what to do to make *B/DLism more socially acceptable, since that thread was a little off topic, but I decided this deserved its own thread.
I have a theory as to why there are more males than females who like the feeling of diapers. Tell me if you think I'm nuts or maybe onto something. I'll be especially interested to hear from the females in our midst.
Here is my theory:
I think it's mostly because of the physical difference in our bodies, but compounded by our general emotional make up. Let me explain.
For men it's a much more physical experience. In other words, even if it's not sexual, for a male, the diaper is in direct contact and even rubbing against some of the most sensitive parts of his body for nearly the entire time he is wearing one. This just adds to a male's natural tendency to react more to and be stimulated more by actual physical feelings (i.e. taste, touch, sight, smell, hearing). This is also the reason so many more men like watching porn then women. It's stimulating his sight sense.
For a woman it's different. It's nice and comfortable, but the softness and gentleness just isn't as noticeable because her most sensitive parts are INSIDE her body. For her, because of her natural tendency to be more emotional, it's more about the emotions and feelings that go along with the wearing of the diaper. This is also why when it comes to sex, women like to have the whole experience (i.e. candlelight dinner, walk on the beach, etc. to get in the mood), where a man would usually rather just jump in the sack.
This is also why, in my estimation, there appears to be very few women who are only DLs. Most women into diapers are both ABs and DLs, because being AB is all about the emotional side, not just the physical feeling of the diaper.
So what do you all think? I am nuts or does this make sense?
