Connect to information about Diaper Fetishism.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Diaper fetishism, nappy fetishism or diaperism, is a sexual fetish in which a person feels a desire to wear or use diapers. This is not due to a medical need.
Diaper fetishism is totally independent from pedophilia as the wearer derives pleasure only from the diaper and/or use of it. Being forced to wear diapers as a form of humiliation is sometimes a behavior encountered in sexual masochism.
As of 2013, little analysis of this paraphilia has been reported in medical literature.
Diapers in paraphilias
Those with diaper-related paraphilias differ widely in their focus of attention. There is no singular or archetypical behavior; therefore, a wide range of thought patterns and behaviors exist, but all tends to be a harmless and efficacious release from some kind of pressure.
While wearing diapers, a diaper fetishist generally experiences a comforting feeling. For other diaper fetishists, simply wearing a diaper, the bulking feeling and crinkling sounds associated with it, is enough to cause the fetishist a form of erotic pleasure or sexual arousal.
However, most practice their diaper fantasies (i.e. the wearing of diapers) in a way that would probably not be noticed by passersby on the street. Some diaper wearers wear their diapers for limited amounts of time, while others prefer to wear them on a 24-hour, seven-day schedule.
Some are aroused from "wetting" (Urination) their diapers, or, among a smaller population, "messing" (defecation) in the diapers. Some do not use the diapers at all, for arousal, or bladder and bowel movements.

Diaper fetishes, diaper lovers (DLs), are often associated with paraphilic infantilism as both wear diapers, but the former does not role-play infant or childlike behavior, while that is the distinguishing characteristic of adult babies (ABs). The majority of diaper lovers do not engage in any kind of babyish activities and only solely are interested in diapers. However, in certain individuals it is possible for an overlap to occur, as one can view himself as neither exclusively an adult baby or a diaper lover. Hence adult babies and diaper lovers collectively referred to themselves as AB/DLs.

Some rubber and plastic fetishists have an affinity for diapers and rubber pants. In the case of disposable diapers, this attraction would be to their crinkly plastic backing. In the case of cloth diapers, it would be towards the latex or pvc of the pants worn over them.
