5 questions about the adult baby community we're all too scared to ask
The world of adult babies is an enigma to most of us.
Adult babies have had a lot of negative coverage in the media, which has created lots of misconceptions.
1. Are they paedophiles?
According to the community, they are united by the fact they want to be children for a short amount of time. They say they are neither sexually attracted to children and nor do they engage in or promote sex with children at all.
2. What do they do?
Many roleplay as babies
Some things they do include: sleeping in their cots, drinking from baby bottles, and cuddling their teddy bears for comfort.
Most dress up in baby clothes
Some meet up at events specifically aimed at members of their community
There is a monthly party hosted in a basement behind London's King's Cross station, where 'mummies,' 'daddies,' and 'babies' come together to dance, play catch and even chase each other around. They even have a bar that serves breast milk for those especially thirsty.
3. Do members get sexual gratification from it?

Many members do gain sexual gratification from role play, dressing up, and/or the feel, texture and sound of blankets, nappies, milk bottles etc. but not all adult babies gain any sexual pleasure from it at all.
4. Why do they do it?
Some do it to relieve stress: Derek Ventham, who runs an adult 'nursery', says: "Half an hour in a nappy, and my stress is gone;” some do it for the sexual gratification, whereas others use it to cope with childhood trauma. 21-year-old Jess, a sexual abuse survivor from Florida, says "Age play is really my best escape, and it allows me to reclaim the innocence of my childhood and have it play out the way I always wanted.”
5. What kind of people participate in this fetish?
People from all walks of life are part of The Adult Baby Diaper Lover (ABDL) community. Some are doctors, some lawyers, others builders, the list goes on. Barry who fitted your loft may even be a member of this controversial community.
Is there a future for this group?
Despite the controversy, this community continues to grow day-by-day. These are people—people who we see in our everyday lives, which makes it even more bizarre.
