WIPING BACK THE YEARS... The story of an infantilist
Whilst most of us can’t wait to grow up and become independent, decide for ourselves what to wear, what to do or even what to think, others secretly rejoice at being little ones and wish they could be a child forever. You might think of Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up, but this is no film script, this is a real life story.
Infatilists crave to regress to a younger age: baby, toddler or teenager, sometimes with a desire to wear nappies. They are known as adult babies, or ABs. Not much has been written about adult babies, mostly due to not having ample information about them; therefore the few articles in existence are from psychologists or doctors. So, when I met Christian in a fetish club in London, who confessed to being an infantilist, curiosity got the better of me and I jumped at the offer of spending some time in his company and his ‘little me’, Bibbi, in order to understand about ABs. After all, who better than a real life AB to answer the multitude of questions I had?
We arranged for me to live in his world for a few days and share the life of an infantilist. Christian is very willing and keen to talk about himself and his age play, as infantilism still carries many negative connotations and prejudices. He wants to dissolve some of the beliefs that he has encountered and show everybody that ABs are no weird creatures who suffer from some kind of psychological disturbance, nor should they be cured of a strange condition.
Once settled in his apartment, I am ready to observe, and participate if the occasion presents itself. I am curious to see how Christian and Bibbi live together, whether it is a Jekyl and Hyde scenario, taking on a different identity, or simply a question of changing clothes and wearing nappies, or again something rather different.
