There’s very little statistical evidence on adult babies. Or little that I can find, primarily those referenced via Wikipedia’s entry on paraphilic infantalism which states that there is a very high number of male AB/DLs compared to female (by a ratio of 10-20 to 1). Less still is evidence of the incidence of gay, straight, or bisexual in the adult baby community (let alone discussion of transgendered etc.)
All I really have to go on is what’s visible on Web sites, forums and other on-line resources where AB/DLs post, and it strikes me that while there are highly active gay communities in the AB/DL world, there are an incredibly small number of ‘dads’ like myself – or certainly very few that don’t also seem to be involved in S&M or BDSM.
As I’ve said, my interests aren’t in dominance or being a ‘master’ and are exclusively related to feelings of nurturing and care-taking.
I also find it intriguing how often the gay community describes diapers as a ‘kink’ in comparison to how many self-describe as ABs or even just plain diaper-lovers. While there’s nothing wrong with that (as Seinfeld would say) I can’t help wondering whether I’m just extrapolating this myself, whether it’s unique to the gay community, or whether these over-lapping domains of kink/BDSM/DL and AB seem to have the same relative rations in other parts of the community.
Dad wants to know.
