Xtreme Diaper - Adult Baby site
"I knew I shouldn't have let you have that macrobiotic youghurt."
As a dad of two girls under the age of 2, watching them desperately trying to grow out of being a baby and becoming more independent is fascinating. Which makes you wonder exactly what's going on behind the likes of Xtreme Diaper.
Don't get me wrong - it's a fantastic site. Xtreme Diaper is to adult baby sites what Abby Winters was to amateur sites when it launched. I truly believe that. It's a great site.
But here we have men and women seemingly wishing to de-age. They actually want to go BACK to sitting around in their own waste products and not being able to enjoy the delights of a bacon sandwich or the new episode of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.
Digging deeper though, it seems as though the adult baby market is quite a bit bigger than I thought. The genre isn't represented by many sites but it has a hell of a lot of fans.
I think that the genre is an interesting one to examine in terms of issues of humiliation and domination. It's pretty much a world away from the whip-cracking, chain-wielding darkness of BDSM and the dominatrix, but at a lower level the adult baby niche is very much similar.
You've got performers wanting to be humiliated and 'looked after' by a dominant person. Your welfare is completely in their hands. You're made to feel useless and helpless.
The main difference is that there is more of an element of performance in the adult baby genre for all the performers rather than just the dominant one. It's all really fascinating to me - as well as being incredibly bizarre at the same time!
