Thread: Mental research behind Adult Baby life.

  1. #1

    Default Mental research behind Adult Baby life.

    Professional research discussing the complexity of the Adult Baby lifestyle and fetish is limited. If that research were to happen, multiple outcomes could result. Therapists would likely be more capable of assisting an Adult Baby (in self acceptance, life management, stress coping or whatever), but we might also see negative attention fall on the community as well. Both good and bad could result.

    If you had the choice, would you want to see professional research be conducted to explore and understand the Adult Baby lifestyle and fetish?

    If you are also a Diaper Lover refer to this thread.

    yes professional research into why we choose to live this way would be interesting. I think that the researchers would need to unbiased so if the out come is good or bad it is fair.

    Im not sure if we need everything here in life explained. To me it sometimes seams like we humans, thing there needs to be an explanation to everything. Maybe we should just embrace the good stuff in life that makes us happy, as long as it dosen't hurt anyone else physically i can't be anyone else's problem But when thats said, I my self do try to find out why i ended up with this lifestyle witch my AB life have become So i choose -> undecided <- , It's going to be interesting to see what majority is going for. Just my thoughts

    It would be interesting, I don't think as such it could ever really be explained why we are AB's DL's and what not, but I think it could give us better understand of how we ended up here, better understanding of the big problems that we by large as a community face, ie mental health challenges that may not be as prevalent in other communities. Maybe even help "outsiders" understand we aren't the boogie people under the bed after the children, we will do no harm them.

    Before I start rambling on though, I will just say, a fair unbiased study on the ABDL populous could be very insightful.

    Yes, I would. I have always wanted to understand the why behind me. But from reading these forums, I have concluded the why is to vast to fully understand. We are such a large and varied group of people from many different experiences and social upbringing. I have only recently learn to accept it but in the back of my mind I still ask the "why'.

    I'm less interested in having causes/origins explained. What I'd like to see is some research into outcomes and possibly negative results of being an active ABDL. Having creditable, peer-reviewed research to point to would be very helpful for both ABDLs with problems and the professionals assisting them with those issues. I think the bigger problem is defining what is or is not ABDL.

    I would think the negative results would vary a lot of ABDLs. In that case, I think you would have to narrow the research. For example, I only regress about 1 day a week and I do it alone where others then to regress more. The negative has to be social aspects and possible health aspects. I see that widely varying on how much that regression occurs. I think you make some good points so I am curious more about what your thinking?

    I would participate in the research if it would help me find a place where I was happy and well cared for.

    I put "undecided." My enthusiasm for it would depend a lot on what the research was aiming to discover/confirm. On one hand, understanding the origins of these desires--specifically these desires (I emphasize that because I don't want another debate on "imprinting", the genetics of sexuality, etc.)--would be very interesting. On the other hand, research into the social aspects of AB/DL, while interesting to some, could easily devolve into a freak show that ends up amplifying negative stereotypes. It would really need to be done with care.

    So, yeah. Not sure.

    I'm going to have to disagree with the OP on this one unfortunately. Yes, having research is good for the medical field to be able to have an understanding about various different things. However, when we look at the psychiatric field it is more about what are issues that are common and are causing issues for patients. Unfortunately ABDLism doesn't really fit into the category. Most psychiatrists/psychologists aren't familiar with it (and that is in part of not having an understanding about it) and this is related to the amount of people they see with this issue. There are probably a number of people that they see with other issues. Most of the time ABDLism doesn't actually cause any major issues (there are always some issues that come to light for being involved in this but most negativity around this is related to coming out/being discovered).

    So unfortunately there isn't much of a drive for a need to research into ABDL, mostly because people who work in that field don't see enough of it to need to be able to find out more about it.
