Thread: AB/DL genetic or not

  1. #1

    Default AB/DL genetic or not

    I'm no expert on genetics in fact I know very little but I've been pondering this for a long time. Is it possible that some people are born with love for diapers? I know that ever since I was potty trained I have been trying to get back into diapers. I would sneak my little brother and sister diapers quite a lot and often got caught. I never understood why I had such a love for diapers I just always have. I want to know everyone else's opinion. Do you believe it is possible that this could be genetic or more to do with our brain chemistry.

    Ah, the old Nature v. Nurture debate.

    I don't think ABDL is genetic in terms of it being hereditary, but quite a lot of people ascribe the desires of sexually motivated DLs as being a result of their lovemaps (the blueprint for each individual's erotic desires) misfiring. Whilst I'm not certain that's correct, the argument that our imprinting has ended up giving us a sexual urge based on something inanimate as opposed to a body part or a sexual activity with a partner is quite a compelling one.

    As for ABs, especially those who don't have sexual tendencies relating to ABDL - I think the answer more often lies in circumstance and socialisation. I think it has more to do with adult nostalgia for childhood or a wish to capture a happy childhood which you never had, than it does with any inherent psychological makeup.

    Most psychological research points to sexuality as mostly environmental with the potential for genetic predispositions. For example homosexuality is not a choice, but it is also not entirely genetic. In identical male twins where either are homesexual, only 70% of those sets of twins are both homosexual. This points to a strong genetic component, but if it were entirely genetic you would expect it to be much closer to 100%. Remember environmental does not mean choice since until maturation you don't choose how you live. In terms of sexualizing behaviors, a psychology professor once told me "If you want to get a new fetish all you have to do is perform an activity while aroused". That's all it takes for the brain to make a connection between an activity and sex. In the case of diapers specifically, I doubt there is a genetic component for it since diapers are non-natural. Honestly trying to figure out anything with the brain is a bit of a toss-up. It was recently found that 60% of psychological studies were unable to be replicated. We really don't know much about how we think.

    There are ABDL couples with kids. You could ask them once thier kids hit 13 or so.

    Let's say there's a gene that makes people attracted to diapers.

    1. Why don't any of the parents in this community have kids who like diapers? You could claim that kids are good at hiding them, but ADBL parents are probably going to be hypervigilant on the matter.

    2. How would this manifest before diapers were invented?

    Theories about lovemaps dovetail to a large extent with research on imprinting. Psychological explanations (nurture) for diaper love are unconvincing. Evolutionary explanations (nature) would be ridiculous. Imprinting is an observable phenomenon that, among other things, is theoretically responsible for many aspects of our sexuality including gender identification, orientation, and both normal and abnormal desires.
