I voted forever, although that isn't really accurate.

I would guess that goes back as far as society does, change that probably back as far as the first permanent or at least long term (multiyear) settlements. Diapers are not required.

i said 100 years.

Due to the fact that this isn't already in our head, something trigurs it.

So i think in the last 100 years, things like Pornographic material was created. Hence the Fetish society was formed. I don't know :p

i think for as long as there have been people, they have wanted to act like a baby...there's just something about being young and giving up adult responsibilities....

I think you have to split *B and DL here. DL is a fetish, and until diapers themselves existed it isn't possible for a fetish about them to have existed. *B however, I wouldn't be surprised if it has been around as long as society has. I have put over 1000 years because I think that the *B side of this has almost certainly been around this long. DL not nearly as long - it requires the existence of diapers themselves. Even now you can get people who are *B for whom different aspects of being infantile are more important than the diapers - people could easily have felt part of them was, or want to be, infantile without the existance of diapers. The idea of being an infant again simply needs a concept of what it is to be an infant.

EDIT: Tommy - porn - invented in the past 100 years? I doubt this greatly. I expect porn has existed in one way or another since we have been able to communicate other than through speech, and I would be surprised if before then we hadn't had erotic tales told by word of mouth. To be honest, I honestly thought they had found porn dating back to the ancient Romans, and even if they haven't I would be amazed if it hadn't existed.

SECOND EDIT: I didn't vote forever (as long as diapers have existed) because from what we know diapers haven't been around that long. Also, while I imagine fetishes etc. developed early in human society, I doubt they have existed for as long as there have been humans. I think it is a product of human society - but one that would have taken a short while to form. I imagine they reach back deep into human history, but would equally imagine it is a product of human society, not being human itself.

I put forever as well. Though the DL fetish couldn't have developed until diapers existed, I think people have had the desire to act younger and regress for as long as civilization has existed.

About 8 inches....

I chose since there were diapers. Although it was probably so far in the closet that it didn't exist in the form it does today.

Mistaking inches for cm...like NASA did, which causes some rocket to explode?!

Either way, I'm pretty sure the desire to act younger than your actual age has been around for a long time. Just look at other animals and you'll see they do the same thing at times, so it's not really unnatural either.

I don't see how you could be born with this. Anyways I voted 100 years and really who the hell voted for 5 years? That's already been proven false.

I put forever, but I mean it in the sense of however long humans have had a conscious difference between adulthood and childhood. Infantilsim has probably been around since humans were able to know that Being a baby is different and less stressful than being an adult, not since diapers were invented.

I too voted 100 years because I have researched the history of diapers, and that's about how long they have existed. As for acting immature, that has probably been around forever.

I chose 100 years or less, thinking about the existance of the mass-production of diapers. I'm not that sure though...but I'm sure the first disposables that were mass-produced yeilded ALOT more infantilists than cloth diapers. Though I was born into and grew out of cloth =/

The Romans wrote at great length of AB-ness in their culture, specifically when a warrior was wounded in battle to the point he had to go home. Upon arriving he was treated as a baby, feedings, ancient diapers, bathed, the whole nine yards until he gained full abilities again.

Although I don't think someone is born with *B, rather a type of disposition to become attracted to objects sexually, in a sense. To be blunt I'm lumping all fetishists into one pycho-category which is poor science. But from what I have read, fetishes arise when most people are one to two years old.

I voted "forever, or as long as there have been diapers".

I think that there have been diapers for as long as humans have been sentient. Think about it --- human babies can't take care of themselves and are perpetually messy. Mothers would have developed some way to keep the mess under control.

Actually the first instance of infantilism probably appeared about 8 years after the invention of the diaper :D so it isn't really FOREVER !!
