Just curious to see other's take on this.
I've heard people say that a desire to be publicly treated like a baby or small child is due partly to a desire to be humiliated.
Back in grade school, one of my fantasies was that the school would have a diaper punishment routine for discipline. Fortunately for me there was no such policy at any of my schools or I would have been in trouble so often I probably would have become a career criminal. The idea behind a policy like this would be the assumption that the humiliation caused by being forced into wearing and using diapers would be so great it would deter further bad behavior on the part of the child involved.
For a DL, the idea of being forced into diapers can be very appealing. Not because of any assumed humiliation but because the idea of being forced takes away the real humiliation of having it become known that one enjoys wearing diapers. It gives the DL the oportunity to wear in front of everyone relatively free of real humiliation. He/she would have to pretend to be humiliated so as to hide the real secret, but the experience would be far more pleasing than actually humiliating.
I can see how a little physical pain can be exciting to some but I don't see how humiliation can ever feel good or be desireable. Am I missing something?
