Sorry in advance for long post
Well I was in psychology class yesterday and we came across Freud's psycho sexual stages of development and it seems to do a good job at describing some of the ABish tendencies some of us have.
For example one stage of development says that when we are 0-2 years old we derive pleasure from oral stimulation, coming from breasts, bottles, pacifiers, teething rings, etc. The theory states that we can become fixated in a stage and that it can result in things like finger biting, chewing on pencils, smoking (all things that involve the mouth). So I think the fixation very easily be a pacifier or bottle.
The next stage is anal which deals heavily with potty training. If we become fixated in the anal stage could we not very easily become fixated with diapers and such? More on Freud's stages of development here.
Other Question to ponder:
It seems that in autistic disorders, like aspergers there is a higher rate of fetishism and sexual attraction to objects. Why do you think this is?
Thanks for reading. And here's a picture of rainbow dash for your troubles.
Also this is a thread for general discussion of any psychology diaper related stuff.
