This is a continuation of a post I made under the "fetish" thread, but as it was buried far down at the bottom, I thought I'd re-post here.
As much as I enjoy diapers and the thought of a girl purposely using one, I find the mere possibility that at least 1/3rd of the population wears what amounts to a "mini diaper" or "maxi pad" all the more intriguing.
Thinks about it - diapers have an intended use. Maxi pads have a different use. I often wonder how many girls use their pads for (as it was put in one commercial) "leaks of non-period origins" :O
I would be willing to wager that at least 1/3rd of the population is acquianted with some sort of external "protection when dealing with their menstrual needs. Pads, pantyliners - the like. To them, the notion of wearing a protective garment is not alien in any way.
Next, you have the fact that statistics show one in three women have "lbl" or "light bladder leakage" when they laugh, cough, or sneeze. So at least that many have become acquainted with the idea of wetting their pants (albeit a little bit) as their own "normal" secret - even if it is inadvertent or as an accident. To recap, 1 in 3 women are comfortable wearing protection, and familiar with the idea that the protection can be used for pee.
Now, perhaps I've put too much thought into this, but I think the "hold back" for most folks when it comes to wetting is the idea of "sitting" in your own urine or having the urine touch you. But if it's going to happen anyways, then this "hold back" is no longer of use - if you're leaking pee everytime you laugh, then you aren't going to be turned off by the idea of having pee in your pants. That's part of the reason why you would be wearing protection in the first place.
Next we have thought of wetting on purpose This I believe to be a matter of pride - a product of our bring-up in cultures that render "giving in" to the urges of your bladder as childlike, as a defeat. But if the urge hits and nobody is going to know, why fight it?
I think this is a common thought that is rarely spoken of.
How many of women do you think have made, at one time or another, the conscious decision to "let" themselves pee knowing full well that their "period pad" will cover over any indiscretions.
Think about it - the girl who is laughing feels the need to cross her legs... but why bother? "I can let a little out and nobody will know", she thinks. After all, her pad will protect her. And she walks away with the quanit pleasure of knowing she did something "taboo" without anybody ever finding out. To me, that's the ultimate turn on - seretly pleasuring yourself by doing one of the last "taboos" in our society - and not even being willing to admit to yourself that you're doing it (otherwise they would "graduate" to something more substantial - like diapers etc.)
I believe this happens much, much more than most people think.
A search on google will pull up a few brave admissions of doing it on purpose, and many more saying it happened "once" as "an accident". But why would folks share that info unless they wanted to legitimize it as something normal. To test the waters, perhaps?
I'm not saying that every girl does it, or even 1/3rd. But I would be willing to bet that a significant amount do far more often than anybody could imagine.
Am I off base here? An imagination gone wild? Or do you think there is something to it?
Any brave ladies willing to admit?
