I would find it highly impractical and a social suicide. Lol. Not that there are not places where those might be handy like in long distance competetive sports if those only add up very minor performance hindrance.
Unless you're Tony Stewart (or a handful of others). I believe the adopting diapers usually comes after it happens to you and you realize the advice was right.
Hmmm... I was the opposite.I'd be lying if I said I didn't. Only my diaper obsession was a result of my original obsession which was of the need to watch or be watched peeing and pooping. I would wear diapers to work out of convenience, but the reward for me was always being able to pee in the diaper, in public, with so many people standing nearby and unaware
I was lucky my autism was though to be bad behavior.I was slow at everything last wet the bed at 14yrs then somewhat dry but later wetting came back and been in diapers for along time wife helps me a lot.I've been into them since I was 7.
I went started at an autistic school at age 7 and experienced older people than myself in diapers.
I was put in diapers for both my wetting and comfort my meltdowns were bad as a child.Alex, did the other people at your school wear them for incontinence or comfort? I'm really interested to know how common it is for people on the spectrum to wear diapers by choice.
I had all kinds of behavior problems.When I was put back in diapers by my wife to keep her dry had just been tested found to have autism +dd if there was a sexual thing its long gone.More so when I was younger. Now, being in them all the time, the sexual aspect of it has diminished. They can still be a turn-on in the right circumstances, though.
I agree with your post when growing up had lots of problems as I said earlier last wet as a child at 14yrs then ok till later wetting came back.I was married she is younger than me she wanted no wet beds put me back in diapers then tested found to have autism +dd.Most of my life I'd had off-and-on attractions to wearing diapers again and recently thought "what the hey" and started off with a bag of Goodnites and went from there, trying different brands. What I've found is that the "protection" is making it easier to be in the presence of my overbearing family more as well as the sensory feelgood. It is a bit of a risk of being found out and the possible aftermath of such, since I have no actual medical need though I was a late bedwetter.
Several things go through my mind; part of this has got to be the classic aspie late-blooming sudden intense interest. 2; I don't perceive my childhood as happy and loving as I thought it should have been, 3; I'm uncomfortable as an adult and the world's expectations for me to live up to, and 4; living with my family being the way it is, with these expectations and yet wanting to figuratively treat me as a toddler, this is a subconscious gesture in congruence with my history of stepping into the role of the accused. This is just my rational, logical self hashing it out, but from what I've been researching, it's like autism - it was already there and it's not going away on its own.
Am I truly alone in my double dose of weird?
At times I am embarrased to wear one because of prostate issues. Growing old sucks. But in May that may be a thing of the past as I have found a physician who can do a resection using a technique that maintains function.
The problem with my BPH, is that the enlarged median lobe is intruding into the bladder causing issues. Any procedure creating heat will damage tissue resuting in problems like retrogade ejaculation. So the common procedure TURP (Trans-Urethreal Resectioning Procedure) is very sensitive to the Urologist's skill. I found one in my state that does Aquablation. It is a robotic procedure with real time mapping of the tissue to be removed that uses a fine stream of high pressure water to ablate the tissue. Recovery is faster and there are no reports of negative effects a year later.What is the technique because l know someone who really needs this done. Thank you in advance.
