Other terms for diaper fetishism are diaper sex or diaper sm. Diapers are probably the most 'infantile' objects that are used as fetishes. Most people like to behave like a baby every now and then. Some associate being a baby with sexual arousal. Especially the diaper enhances that feeling. Just as with the other sexual varieties, the sexual tickle of a diaper is more noticeable when it is worn by men than by women, because women regularly use baby-like products such as sanitary pads or panty liners, and derive a mixture of sexual excitement and irritation from them.
How the diaper became a fetish
It is easy to see how the diaper became a fetish. It is associated with the first erotic, usually unconscious experiences. Anyone who, after an operation or because of incontinence, has had to wear a diaper. knows the stimulating effect it can have on the erogenous zone between the legs, the crotch, the anus.
Some men visit a prostitute and ask them to play the role of mother or caretaker. The diaper is put on the baby, the baby wets it, then the diaper is changed. The accompanying actions resemble a children's game. The caretaker dominates, can be harsh and slap the baby. She needs to touch the baby's genitals while she changes the diaper. The washing, drying, rubbing, and powdering of the genital organs, including the anus, can be sexually extremely stimulating. At the end, the customer has an orgasm and ejaculates, either through the caressing and rubbing, or by active masturbation.
Diaper sex meetings
The above description is the most concrete form of diaper sex. Some people, usually men, prefer to share diaper fetishism with others. They have regular meetings, for instance once a month, during which they wear diapers, discuss their feelings with each other, behave like babies, drink from a bottle, lie in a cot, wet or mess their diapers, sometimes change each other's diapers. Discipline may be an important part of these activities.
The main purpose of the meetings is acceptance and socialising. Participants sometimes object to the label 'diaper sex', because the meetings, they say, are much more about being accepted, coming out with a sexual preference without being punished or seen as a deviant and dangerous psychopath.
Diaper fetishism is related to some of the other sexual varieties, including salirophilia and sadomasochism.
