Fetish vs Lifestyle?

Coming off of my other thread about how old you feel.

I noticed many members saying that they felt and acted just as old as they are physically. This leads me to wonder how many of us in the AB/DL world treat this as a fetish and now many of us treat this as a lifestyle?

I can maybe see people who consider AB/DL to be a fetish saying that they feel and act as old as they physically are at the time being. But maybe it is the "lifestyle" people that feel or act younger.

As far as it goes for DF and myself, we consider diapers to be our lifestyle. We wear them every day (and use them). Our bedroom fun often involves diapers too, but that is because we are already in them when we decide to go play around. We can both function sexually without the diapers, but we prefer padding when we play around because it is more cute and fun.

How about y'all?

It's a hobby for me. Not a fetish, nor a lifestyle. Just something I enjoy every once in a while.

I've always considered being a TB a lifestyle, ever since I was 12. It first turned me on a bit, and it still does, but for the most part, it's a lifestyle. It has too much involvement in my life to simply be a fetish, you know?

I wouldn't call it a lifestyle because that seems to put too much focus on it.

I think that sexuality plays quite an important part of life, and growing up I always found it strange that adults seem (almost childishly) to be obsessed with sex...
I guess it is kind of important.

But then I hate it when people define themselves by their sexuality... Like those mega-gay guys who you can tell are gay a mile off, or mega-straight guys who make it very clear that they aren't gay right off the bat.
I'd hate to be "that gay guy", and so I would hate to think of myself as "Charlie Fox: *B".

But then as I said, sexuality does play a big part in life... so I don't know. On a scale of 1 to 10, with one being fetish and ten being lifestyle... I'd be about 4. :p

I haven't a clue.

As a non-wearer, it is a fetish first, seeing a pretty young woman in footed pjs or diapers (or both). However, due to this board, I feel somewhat of a bond with some of you. It is daily that I check in, and learn more things about diapers, footed pjs, and those that wear them.

Kinda posting from the outside, here, but take it for what it's worth.

I think it's a fetish for me...But honestly, I kind of wish it was a lifestyle...I would rather just be able to wear them without feeling horny about it...It can kind of dampen on the fun of it

It's definitely a sexual fetish for me.

If you asked me a few years ago I would have called it a nuisance but I've learned to enjoy it for what it is. I'm comfortable with it being a fetish, it doesn't define my sexual lifestyle as a whole, I would be uncomfortable if it were however I'm more than capable of having ordinary sex if the need arises. Diapers just make it a little more interesting.

I'd say that it's a lifestyle for me, not a fetish. There is nothing sexual about my tbism and I don't wear nor do I have any interest in diapers.

Its a lifestyle for me. I don't do it outside at all tough I have considered using a pacifier on long road trips. From here to anywhere I want to go in Oregon is about a 16+ hour drive. But really its something I mainly keep to my own room/bed.I am not going to go out around in just a diaper or use a pacifier all day.

I vote for the fetish thing for me.
Wear diapers is something I enjoy more if I don't wear everyday.

it's definitely not a lifestyle. it's a fetish, and sometimes a non-sexual hobby, and i'll admit that there are probably certain parts of my personality that are tied up in it. but it's not the way i live my life: it's just something i do.

It's a fetish for me. I wouldn't want it to be a life style.

For me I will have to agree with Mandy, It's like a hobby. I haven't worn in probably 4 months but today I felt in the mood so I went to the store to pick some up. It is also a fetish though simply because a girl in a nappy is pretty darn hot :p

I always thought that for it too be a lifestyle (*B lifestyle) you'd have to live like a child for over 50% of the time. That would make it a majority factor in your life, thus be a lifestyle. But thats just my definition of it.

I've actually never considered it either. It's not really a lifestyle to me because it's barely even part of my life! And it's not really a fetish to me because, it's just no I guess...

I haven't really decided myself if this is a hobby or a lifestyle. I'm still feeling my way through this, though for now, I don't see myself stopping for good anytime soon. I always liked feeling like I was a little girl, still, but I know when I need to be a mature young lady and I know I can be that. If I can get to a point where I can manage trying 24/7, I wouldn't mind it. I think I'd like going out and doing my little day-to-day life, then coming home to suck on my paci and drink out of a bottle the rest of the night. It's what I do now, anyway. So yeah, I'm not sure yet, but if it turns into a lifestyle I would be happy. It's just one part of me.

For me I would say it is both, a fetish and a lifestyle.

Thats not true, I totally disagree with that, you do not have to do it 50% of the time or more for it to be a lifestyle. For example for me....

It is a fetish for me because it can turn me on sexually, specially if I have not cleaned the pipes in the past 24 hours, then it really turns me on. I enjoy seeing girls in diapers and doing and wearing and using baby things too, so thats fetish.

It is a lifestyle for me because it is something I do on the regular. Meaning I do not always do it every day, but at least every week, but usually most days I will wear, and regress a tiny bit in bed before I go nite nite. Plus it is something that will be with us all our lives, and I think that alone can make it a lifestyle, specially if you do it on a regular basis. So it does not even have to be anywhere close to 50% of the time for it to be a lifestyle in my opinion.

It's definitely a fetish for me. I've been sexually turned on by it since I was 6. By definition, any object that gives some sort of sexual gratification is defined as a fetish. Like Eclipse, sooner or later, it always ends in sexual satisfaction for me, to put it politely. What I suppose happens is that the fetish can and does become part of a lifestyle, so fetish first, lifestyle second. If there is no sexual gratification for some, then maybe it is only a lifestyle, fulfilling some need.

I'm sort of in that grey area in between.

To some degree, it's a fetish for me. Being something I indulge in and it can be sexual. However, on the other hand, it could be considered a lifestyle as there are a lot of non-sexual factors that draw me into it.

I'm not necessarily saying that fetish = sexual in all cases, but I've such strong emotional attachments about it that the whole thing really leaps out of that category.

For me, I am not where I stand on that. I have no idea because of the fact that I don't wear diapers these days, but I still would like to play baby with a girl if I found a girl into the lifestyle. Just not sure where I stand.
