I'm not very sure where to start here, so I'll just type and see what happens. I've been looking around the internet for a while now to find a forum where I would be comfortable discussing my personal interest in being in diapers. (Being from Ireland, nappy would be the more used term for diapers, so if I end up typing nappy I apologise - I notice that Diaper Lover is the more used term). And, this seems to be the forum that offers a supportive environment and active, clear discussion.
Me - well, I'm a male in my mid-twenties. Part of me has always wanted to wear and be comfortable using nappies/diapers. This is not something I have ever discussed with anyone. I do not feel that I could declare this to my family or friends. I would feel grossly embarrassed and have no idea how they would react to it. I also feel to a certain extent that this comfort in wearing nappies/diapers could be highly misjudged in Ireland, by a considerable number of people.
I can still remember being maybe roughly two and half/three years and still having a nappy. This must have been very close to when I was about to be toilet trained. When I was growing up and then my younger brother, my parents referred to our nappies as 'wet' or then 'dirty' if we had pooped in them. I recall being on the floor messing with a baby lego type toy and my mam saying something like "Have you done a dirty?" before coming over to me, leaning me over and sniffing my bum and then saying "Yep, you've done a dirty". I also remember another occasion where I'd just lay down on the bedroom floor, and her taking perhaps jeans I was wearing off, smiling at me and then tearing the two tapes off the front of my nappy and opening it up. These memories have always stuck with me for some reason.
I've always wanted to wear nappies/diapers, perhaps since my early teens, and at one stage bought some of the largest size I could find in a supermarket in order to wear at night, and wore them three nights in a row. I felt comfortable in them, but I didn't want to make a habit of it in case my parents or brother found out.
But, recently, I decided I wanted to see what wearing and using diapers/nappies was like, did research, and bought pull up adult type ones. They weren't great. They didn't feel overly comfortable and I think I bought a size too big. I recently discovered a more 'baby type' nappy, for the want of a better term though in a large pharmacy chain across Ireland, Boots Pharmacy. They are of the sort where there are tapes on the front, I can adjust them to fit me, they absorb my urine very well, haven't leaked and I feel very comfortable even after I've peed in them. I also feel a bit more of a baby in them.
I've wore them once in a while at night recently, hiding them away from the rest of the family. But given that nobody was around this weekend (I live with my parents and brother), I decided to wear them from yesterday evening through to this morning, changing them as and when I needed to, and I am very happy having done that. I feel totally comfortable peeing in them and changing myself, and I intend on going out and purchasing a new packet today, more baby wipes, and doing the same this evening while nobody is here. I also never wear them outside the house. So, I would class myself as a Diaper Lover. As for being an adult baby, well I've never used any other baby type things, like clothes or toys etc, but I would like to perhaps go down that route someday, but certainly not for as long as I live here.
So, I guess that the best place for me to start would be the diapering or stories forums.
I hope that gives you some idea of who I am and my interest as a 'diaper lover' and I look forward to interesting discussion with you.
All the best,
