First, thanks to all of you for taking time to post, it is obvious than many of you are very thoughtful and it really makes it an interesting place to hang out.
I have not started many threads, as I don't want to 'waste bandwidth' so to speak. I have been thinking about this for a while and curiosity got the best of me.
There are many interesting aspects of our lifestyle, some really important to a few, and so insignificant to others. Of the many interesting aspects of our lifestyle, shopping ranks high on the list for me. I know we all have many things in common, and I am sure that we have just as many differences. So my question to you is simple. How does shopping rank in your world?
Do you like to learn about new products?
For instance, when I see new products, I have a hard time not buying one just to give it a try. I enjoy keeping up on the latest products and hearing what everyone else thinks of them. It is really not what is the best, it is what is best for you (functional/comfortable/inconspicuous).
Where do you shop?
This may seem like a really dumb question to the younger crowd; the only place to shop is on the net right? If you have been around for a few (many) years, that is not the case. Does any one like to shop in person (very few places exist for DLs), but there are a few, and I am drawn to them like a moth to light. I find it interesting to meet and talk about products and actually interact with the people that were brave enough to publicly enter into this arena.
What about shopping in Medical supply stores? Although it has become kind of boring over the last 10 years (there are only a few name brands sold now and mostly disposables), It has not always been that way. 15 years ago BabyKins sold their products to medical supply stores, and that is how I discovered real DL products (before USENET and alt.sex.fetish.diapers).
Any way, I am not affiliated with any AB/DL business and never will be, but I am interested to hear from other brothers from different mothers, and sisters from different misters LOL
