Diaper Fetish

Updated: OCTOBER 26, 2023

Diaper fetish is a form of paraphilic infantilism and a sexual fetish where individuals experience erotic arousal and satisfaction from wearing diapers, often in conjunction with other infantilism or age play elements. This fetish encompasses various aspects, including the act of wearing diapers, role-playing as infants, and engaging in age-regression fantasies. Although being an adult baby is related to diaper fetishism, it is considered a separate fetish. People who engage in both fetishes are called adult baby diaper lovers (ABDL).

Although this fetish is often considered a sexual one, some adult babies have no sexual motivation for their role-playing activities. Most adult babies play infants of their own gender. However, some adult babies, known as sissy babies, play infants of the opposite gender.

It is also important to note that while adult babies and diaper lovers may find it sexually appealing to role-play as a baby, this does not mean they have or their partners have a sexual attraction to babies or children.

Why are people into diapers and wearing diapers?

While there isn't a lot of research into these communities, one survey of more than 1,800 members of an online Adult Baby/Diaper Lover community answered a survey. The results the survey were published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, and found that that interest in the fetish tended to arise early in life, at around 11 or 12 years old. It also found that the most common ABDL behaviors were using diapers, using other baby items, and wetting or messing diapers.
