My most common form of diaper dream starts well and then isn't what I'd wish. It involves “playing baby,” being comfortingly poopy and/or wet, and then having that rare chance of exploring this interrupted by family or friends who are likely to find out. I'm in bed, soiled like a baby, and they're in the room.My first dream like this was in my teens. I was in the music room after school. Thinking I was safe and alone, I'd completely pooped in my pants like a 2- or 3-year-old having an accident, and partly peed them too, just to feel and enjoy what it was like. (I really played that way sometimes at that age, always in privacy at home.)And in walked a classmate. I was partly behind instrument cases but he couldn't help immediately knowing the inexplicable thing I'd done in my pants — the most shameful thing that could happen to anyone at school. We had an awkward conversation in which he didn't say a word about it but I knew everyone would find out. I woke up shaken. Pretty obviously these dreams are about fear of discovery.
