I suppose that everyobdy in this forum saw the clip of AB on the Tyra Banks show. If not, this woman went on the talk show and talked a little (nothing that would prove useful in informing the public at large) about infantilism. Closing the interview, Banks said that as people get older, they often become incontinent and should that happen to the guest, it would be a good thing. I disagree about that being a good thing. I found the remark to be somewhat ignorant, but knowing how much time the public spends considering the issues of incontinence, adult diapers, and infantilism, I wasn't offended. The guest did not have a chance to reply.
Anyway, I've heard this same remark in many places. I've also heard, and understand, the argument that 24/7 is a burden that takes the fun out of diapers. I'm sure they're right (though I bet there are some whose experience is otherwise). And I know of a good many who were incontinent and then found a love of diapers. But I was wondering if there is anyone here who went from being an *BDL to being incontinent (and not in the sense that wearing frequently leaves people less able to control themselves through conditioning; I mean bonafide, medical incontinence). I'm curious how prevalent such a transition is, and whether people who have been through it find that their experience is similar to those who find 24/7 a burden or those who manage to find a love of something they need. Personally, I would find it awful, but I suppose, like everything else, I'd get used to it. B/ut I do suspect that I would diapers a burden from then on, or at least not nearly so fun as they are now.
I posted this here because I am interested in the experience of infantilists, but feel free to move it to the Incontinence Board should you find i appropriate.
