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.
Adult Babies and Diaper Girls
Ageplay or age play is a form of roleplaying in which an individual acts or treats another as if they were a different age. Ageplay is role playing between adults, and involves consent from all parties. Portraying any age can be the goal of ageplay, from babies, to the elderly. Usually this involves someone pretending to be younger than they actually are, but more rarely can involve assuming an older role.
