Not sure if a thread like this exists or not (and if it does, I apologize, feel free to merge it if necessary).
Lately I’ve been seeing a vast increase in female ABDL’s. I don’t mean porn stars like diaper gal, but legitimate AB’s and such. So I’m kind of wondering two things, and sorry to all the TG’s out there, I really only mean this sort of thing to biologically born women.
First, I’m wondering what their perspectives on being an AB is; is it different from men, relatively the same? Does it arouse you or do you do it just because? Not to suggest it’s exclusive to male only, but do you have a reason to be an AB yourself (I don’t have a reason myself, I do it just for fun, so no reason is an okay answer as well)?
Secondly, a little more of a broader question. Does anyone know why there seems to be a sudden increase in female AB’s? Is it truly becoming a popularity or fashion trend, have they always existed in the same numbers as now but were a little more cautious due to how vivid many of the stereotypical male DL’s can be? Or maybe it’s because male AB’s tend to want mommies, and thus any actual interest in being an AB forced her to play the dominant role as opposed to a baby role herself.
Just random weird stuff I’ve been wondering lately. It just seems like ten years ago or so it was all guys and TG’s, anyone with a penis or previously owned a penis was an AB and all of the biological females were nothing but porn stars, and now this seems to have flipped. I’m starting to see a LOT more female AB pictures like Anne, Sammy, and Sodypop.
When I first joined this site (back when it was on proboards), I don’t really remember any other women other than Kit.
Well, the other admin I knew of but did not know was actually female.
Perhaps its my own fault for considering anyone who uses a female to very likely be a transgendered or sissy male of some sort. I didn’t even know if Elizabeth was a real female until she posted a single picture of herself on this forum.
IMO, I think they’ve always been around, but were forced into hiding by all the HNG’s. I can’t comment on the goings on of ten years ago, because I wasn’t online then.
As for me, I have three reasons for being an ABDL. Or, rather, I have three sides to my ABDLness. There’s my little side, there’s my sex-obsessed perv side, and there’s the side of me that just likes the feeling of a soft pillowy thing between my legs. Sometimes I don’t even know which side plans to make an appearance until the diaper’s on. I don’t know how this compares to how men see being ABDL, but I will hazard a guess that most stick with one of the three.
And yes, I’m a genetic girl, a fact that I vehemently curse every three weeks or so. lol
I agree with Lafrique. I think they’ve always been around, but they don’t interact much in the online scene because of all of the HNGs.
There are quite a few in the many groups on FetLife.
The only ones I remember being members here over the years were Elizabeth, Mandi(who now goes by Scamper on FetLife), Neekolah and Tali. I thought Lafrique was a girl, but I was never sure. I wasn’t around during the Proboards days.
Men tend to be earlier adopters of technology as well. I wonder whether it’s significantly to do with changing internet usage patterns within genders. It seems conceivable that it was mainly men who were looking up this kind of thing on the internet before, yet as more people use it for more of their life, the balance shifts.
I don’t think that there are necesarily more female ABs right now, but rather there are more female-friendly AB (by which I mean the token girl isn’t drooled over by every guy) venues. The prevailing motivation among female ABs I’ve talked to is they are into this because of unresolved Daddy issues. There are, of course, exceptions. I know one inactive AB who got into this to cope with the death of her mother, and one very active AB for whom this is largely a kink.
Most of this sounds like it was before I joined, because I don’t remember most of it. I only remember Dr. Amy because she was the one that started that forum(that has since disappeared) that Todd left here to mod. I remember Mandi was an admin over there and she mentioned on another forum(might have been FetLife. I forget.) that Amy posted some supposed photos of her babies and they were completely different looking and Amy had previously said they were identical twins.
The Kourtney I’m thinking of had a site a long time ago(I was probably 15) that had a ton of candid photos of chicks in diapers. I remember I really liked that site, and I lost the link to it. I found it one other time then never found it again.
I vaguely remember the Sunny that was a member here for a while. She lived in England, IIRC. She had a couple great stories and was posting chapters at a pretty steady clip, then she disappeared. I wonder whatever happened to her.
I have noticed an uptick in AB girls lately online and I have noticed that the ratio is changing. I remember a lot of AB girls I’ve met online… some I’ve had my doubts about as those playing games or those that are real. I know one that is for sure real, but I prefer not to name her due to her powerful family which leads me to one major rule of my life- never provoke the rich and powerful- I remember Amy that used to hang around here, I remember an Ally that used to run an MSN group which is what led me to come out of my shell.
I also remember Dr. Amy that used to hang around here and had her own forum after a dispute or whatever, always thought it was like diamondback’s forum- a spite thing or something. I don’t know.
I know Beth who hangs here, I have talked to a few other AB girls here and there, but most times in my case, they seem to disappear or find another daddy or they want someone that’s got more money or something. Can I help it if I am on the lower income bracket? NO.
Well, there are more AB girls because I think the times are changing and things are starting to be more acceptable or something. I dunnknow…
Then don’t forget the reason we ended up moving to Joey’s server. Those douchebags over at MyFastForum suspended this forum because of some warped sense of thinking that there was kiddie porn here. The thing I found hilarious was that this forum had been there for at least two years, and one day they just decided to suspend it.
I still go to their support forum sometimes to read the thread that was started about this forum for the lulz.
I vaguely remember Ken starting his own forum.(it was on XSorbit, wasn’t it?)
Then there was that forum ABDL Most Wanted(which has since disappeared, so there isn’t any reason to censor the name, IMO) that Mandi started with that one couple from ADISC. They registered here under the name TeamPottyPants. IIRC, that Adrian Surley chick was a co-founder also. You can still find the thread that was started here on page 2 of the links forum.
I had a similar problem with the forum when I was on my older computers when my laptop was on the fritz that Todd had, but I adapted to it- He just didn’t want to adapt I guess. I also remember Todd got pissy right after Obama won the election two years ago and posted a rant or something and he left when a lot of people disagreed with him.
Kita, the reason for that line is because I am a bit afraid of those that have more money and power than I do, and it comes from an experience I had a while back.
Ken, man I haven’t thought about him in some time. Wow. Yeah, and I do remember Dr. Amy’s forum, it died a quick death. It does amazes me how thigns change over time and yet how some things stay the same. lol.
