I have been an AB/DL (15% AB & 85% DL to be exact ) since I was a real baby in my first round of wearing diapers. When I was very young, I didn't realize it was something to be quiet about, as I asked my mom regularly to be put back in diapers and pulled countless stunts to achieve this. All of these events must have been between ages 3-8 for me.
While failing to realize that I shouldn't be shouting out my desires to wear diapers again all over town, It didn't help that I had two cousins my age doing slightly the same thing. My extended family was very large and close with tons of kids, with three other boys my age. Looking back on it now, I'm pretty sure it was because of my influence that they bought into the whole diaper thing.. But it is still a bit of a Chicken or the Egg situation.
We went on diaper heists together, stealing baby diapers from the younger cousins. Most of my memories were of them thinking the whole thing was "funny" and me being the only one to put them on and use them. But there were times they did things on their own. I remember going over to one of their houses and being showed a little diaper Haul he was hiding under a chair in his room, but he hadn't done anything with them.. It was more of "Hey man, aren't you impressed that I stole these? Alright, lets put them back." .. As if he had missed the entire point. There were also times all three of us put them on, but I may have been the only one enjoying them. The main reason i think this, is because I was the only one to every bring it up and always made the plan whenever we did anything diaper related. Sometimes they would shrug when I brought it up.
Because they bought into the diaper thing, it made it harder to understand that every kid didn't. That's why School was the thing that embarrassed me out of my diaper desire every once in a while, but forever silenced me. I do think that most likely, because these two cousins (one younger by 9 months, the other by a year) looked up to me at the time, I some how validated something as strange as an abnormal interest in diapers.. But the only thing disrupting that theory was that my other cousin, who was my age, but the older brother of the cousin 9 months younger than I, was so repulsed whenever we did any of the diaper stuff. He would ridicule us, get angry, and then leave. Once he even tipped off the parents to one of our heists.. My poor mom. It's horrifying now to think how he felt that I was the bad influence in all of that to her two sisters' kids.
Later in life there were a few conversations and clues that may have linked them to actually being AB/DL, but I couldn't ever bring it up. I was pretty sure I was the only one in lower school, then middle school, then high school, and now in present time that still loved and snuck around with diapers. It made me feel very alone, because I was spoiled with minions for a few brief years of my early childhood. But as I grew up, I realized that it wouldn't have been right to want to involve my cousins or be open about my Diaper Fetish anymore, because thats exactly what it was, a sexual fetish. At the time it was innocent, but it lost it's innocence after puberty.
Any way, did anyone else have any experiences like this? I'd love if everyone would share!
