I have been participating in another thread where guilt has been a central topic. While reviewing posts and composing a reply it dawned on me that I might be looking at a possible explanation for the guilt that is sometimes present at the end of a diaper or regression session. The theory is below. My questions are, is this plausible? What are your thoughts on this idea?
Here is the post that triggered the theory and my response containing the theory:
In many interesting ways this makes sense. Something happens in childhood, perhaps a traumatic loss of nurture or the child was in a hyper nurturing environment where the nurture went away. Later some trigger awakens the urge to be nurtured again and the individual seeks relief, or literally self nurture. Lets say that this leads to a more infantile sort of self nurturing, or diapers, which fulfills the urge. A cycle develops where there is periodic self nurture, but sometimes the level of nurture is very brief. Theoretically it is this brief episode of self nurture that fails to satisfy the urge and triggers feelings of guilt, not guilt for wearing the diaper but for not having enough of a regression.
It would be very interesting to investigate this idea a lot further.
