Nope the two had absolutely nothing to do with each . I was out of diapers by the time I was two, and they weren’t even on my radar as an interest or fetish until I became incontinent , I never had an interest or thought about them either way until I had to, since then I learned to love them , probably because I can “ afford” to love them .
nobody to hide them from ,there is no stigma ,shame or humiliation for being incontinent that anyone can level against me .
nobody knows for sure that I use diapers ( as far as people who don’t actually know me ) however most people assume all disabled people in wheelchairs “must“ .
as Part of me loving diapers , I wear different brands for an entire day before having an opinion positive or negative and if you know anything about diapers , you know there are some I would hesitate to use on a paper cut . So as you can imagine I may or may not have had some spectacular failures during “testing” this is where “affording “ comes in if I have a huge diaper failure it’s not a big deal my aide changes me and gets Me squared away , with the proliferation of audio video devices that fit in your pocket would you want to be the Baboon that goes viral making a big deal about a guy who “must“ wear diapers , diapers leak that’s what they do !
so be it my normal well established preferred diaper I have confidence in or a any brand test subject that should fail to adequately protect . John/Jane public doesn’t know and doesn’t care the difference ( normal people don’t play Russian roulette with diapers or even know it exists,shhhhh our little secret ) so all kidding aside everyone who knows me knows “I am confined to a diaper and a power wheelchair“ and strangers assume I am , so nobody makes a peep should the diaper become evident due to failure .
and yes I am the guy who thinks Every question deserves an answer young or old ,kinda stupid to intelligent & bold , I am happy to discuss my lived experience or opinions on anything ( another secret about disabled people many people think either A. we are dumb ,B. we were born “this way “ , or C.thank us for our service in the war )
and Just in case you don’t know me , I see nothing wrong with those who chose diapers before they choose us , tape up ,pin up do your duty be it fun or functional .
