WHAT IS AN ADULT BABY?
The desire to be an “adult baby” is a fetish that involves regressing into a state of infancy. This is often undertaken in a physical sense, with the individual wearing childish clothes and diapers and being taken care of entirely as if they were a baby. This can often include being given bottles, playing with toys and being punished when they’re naughty. However, the role play goes beyond just this and is undertaken psychologically too, with the “baby” seeking a loving, caring experience from their dom, who typically remains acting as an adult. Oftentimes they wish not to be called an “adult baby” but instead a “little” to their “big” (as is largely done on online chat communities), sometimes finding the term “adult baby” offensive. There is also such a thing as a “sissy baby”, where an individual (typically male) wears feminised clothing, uses female pronouns and is often consensually play-forced by their dominant into becoming a girly “sissy.” This can be undertaken by begging to stop having makeup forced upon them or to have their nails painted, as an example.
Many adult babies fantasise or wish for a child-like room for them to enjoy, meaning that they can use an adult-sized crib, play with toys and even crawl around on the floor as much as they desire. Many relationships that enjoy the adult baby fetish are also of a dominant and submissive nature, and the dominant in each relationship often takes on a caregiver role for their submissive. It isn’t unusual for them to clothe, feed, wash and discipline their submissive for both of their enjoyment. Often the form of discipline invokes other elements of BDSM, such as spanking and choking.
ENJOYING BEING A BABY
As with all elements of BDSM, there are a vast range of reasons why someone might enjoy roleplaying as an adult baby. For many, it is due to the connotations of humiliation and submission that come with the role, especially when diaper play is involved. The dominant/submissive dynamic can be thoroughly enjoyed by creating opportunities for further training and BDSM play sessions whenever a little is naughty or is being taught how to behave exactly how their dominant likes. Many couples enjoy the little/big dynamic only in moments of sexual intimacy, but others utilise the role 24/7, finding it not just a fun way to enjoy sex and deepen their connection, but as a lifestyle that helps them truly express who they are on a daily basis. Those who utilise it as a lifestyle often are part of large online chat communities that become true friendships, allowing for play dates to further friendships, connection and training.
Many people, especially submissives, enjoy the scene for the level of nurturing and care it can provide them. Oftentimes, those who have been through trauma in the past find it a great comfort to be cared for and looked after by another, but even those who have not experienced trauma can experience the same feeling. Many people simply enjoy the aesthetic of children’s clothing and toys and feel a greater connection to it than enduring life as an adult.
For those with other fetishes and kinks, adult baby play is also, at times, largely similar to other scenes such as puppy play. This helps bridge the gap for people interested in different things, especially with the strong online chat communities established within the scene and can therefore help lead people into a greater sense of discovery for their own tastes.
HOW ARE ABDLs MISUNDERSTOOD?
Understandably, the notion of an adult roleplaying as a baby is confusing, but this often leads people to misunderstand the true sexual enjoyment behind the fetish. As a result, people often find the scene paedophilic and believe that it encourages the sexualisation of children and paedophilic practices. However, it must be remembered that fully consenting adults are the only ones who partake in the scene, and no underage partners are sought as a result.
