Thank you for the reply. I appreciate the time you took to share and educate me.A good question!
Not all autistics are Adult Babies.
But all the Autistics here are Adult Babies.
There are a lot of autistics who are not "Vanilla" with respect to sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
I am an Adult Baby, and I am Gay.
I know, my profile lists "Asexual", but I did that to protect myself from homophobic bigots.
In real-life, I never had a childhood, having been raised by a profoundly mentally-ill Mom.
When regressed, I feel safe and loved.
I am happy that you are able to create safety and self-love through being little. I also relate to that. I would say primarily it is about those things for me.
