I am new to this site, and have found it interesting to read what you all have posted. Many of the things discussed here have been questions of mine for a long time. I am sure this question has been addressed on the site before, but here it is again anyway.
First, my story. I have long wondered why I enjoy diapers and where exactly it began. I remember being jealous that my younger brothers still got to wear them while I didn't. I had many younger siblings, so diapers were always in the house. I remember wishing I could wear them, and there were several times I would fantasize I had one on. At times I would take my pillowcase, fold it into a diaper shape, and put it in my underwear. It poorly simulated the security of a diaper, except of course that I could not use it. I would sneak baby diapers into bed as well, but that was hard because I never had my own room. It was not until I was able to stay home along that my adventure truly began. I invented for myself (at least I had never heard of it) what I called the "double dipe." I would take two pampers and tape them together, using the diaper tape of the one in the back to connect to the front. Amazingly, these makeshift diapers worked quite well, especially if larger sizes were available! I would wet and mess, enjoy myself, and then manage to change and dispose before anyone came home. I did this on a regular basis for a long time. A highlight of those days was the week I housesat for some friends. It was the first time I remember being able to wear diapers to bed without any worries.
During my childhood and early teen years, I had no idea that there were adult diapers that looked and fit like baby diapers. I would fantasize that such a diaper existed, but I thought I was the only teen on earth who liked diapers. I did not learn of DL's until I was in college! That was an incredible discovery!! I had no idea others shared my desires and experiences, and so many at that!! Also, Bambino diapers blew my mind! They are the realization of my younger fantasies, i.e. to have an adult diaper that replicates what I loved about diapers. I ordered my first Bambino diaper a few months ago, and I must say that my experience was far better than I expected.
For me, diapers are security and freedom along with a great feeling. I do not wear them as often as would like, but when I do I thoroughly enjoy them. My favorite time to wear them is when I am in bed. I wear them for both pleasure and practicality. There is nothing I hate more than having to get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. When I am diapered in bed, I rest easy and go when I need to go.
Now for my question? (That is, if you are still reading after that long novel!) I would like to know when and how it began for you, and if you know, why? I have never been able to answer "why" I like them...I just do. Please share your stories and thoughts.
