On the latest episode of Toddy’s Treehouse we covered these two sentences from Kathi Stringer’s essay, What Is True Infantilism:
A common theme revolves around wearing diapers, which in most cases will give rise toward a role-identification of an infantile personality. Over time the behavior in most all cases will expand to include other infantile objects such as pacifiers, baby blankets, baby bottles and soft stuffed figures.
We dove pretty deep to get a better understanding of these statements and I told a couple stories which I think illustrate the points being made.
This is an excerpt from Toddy’s Treehouse – the mobile treehouse, actually. It was recorded in a moving vehicle. If you’d like to find out more about becoming a member of the club visit the treehouse at patreon.com/toddystreehouse.
What do you think of this? Does it bother you at all, or meh, no biggie?
Welcome to the very last public episode of ABDLcast.
It’s been over one year since the previous episode was released, and it was a heavy topic: Mental Health and ABDL.
We received many comments, tweets, and other interactions on that one. I want to thank each of you who have reached out to share your own experiences with mental illness, and to offer support, friendship, and general kindness. There are some really wonderful, caring people that listen to this show. Unfortunately there are also a lot of people that are the exact opposite of kind. And those people… well, I just do my best to avoid and ignore them.
But, enough of that for now, I wanna talk about diapers and stuff! After all, that’s what this show has been all about.
A New Diaper For Toddy?
The biggest personal change since the last time I’ve talked with you is that I have been wearing diapers nearly 24/7 since right about that time. For about the last year I have been spending all but seven or eight hours per week wearing diapers. Of course, I don’t wear in the shower, or if I leave the house to go some place where it is not a good idea to wear a thick, crinkly diaper. Now that I think about it, 7-8 hours per week is probably being too generous!
When I do get out of the house I’m almost always wearing a diaper. And I don’t wear thin, discreet diapers; I wear NorthShore Supremes. And they are thick, though not overly crinkly, because they don’t have a tape landing panel. Before that I was already wearing diapers to bed every single night for at least a year.
You who have listened to past episodes will know that I rarely use my diaper. I wear for comfort, for emotional security, and for anxiety relief. It’s really a form of self-nurturing and self-medication. They always have been.
But after all the hundreds and, probably more accurate, thousands of NorthShore Supremes that I’ve worn I may be ready to make a change. I’ve been experimenting with some samples and I think I’m getting ready to order a case of a another brand of diaper.
Since starting ABDLcast I have intentionally avoided the designer ABDL diapers. I did not want to show favoritism for a specific company. Don’t get me wrong, I know I’m not quiet about my love for NorthShore Supremes. But they are not a designer, niche ABDL diaper company. It’s a medical diaper through and through. And they are still my favorite diaper of all time. But can that change? Of course it can.
I am getting ready to order a case from a well known ABDL diaper company. I have been trying various samples and I think I may have found a diaper that might work better for my needs. But in order to really find out I am going to have to wear a bunch of them. So, I will not mention the brand just yet. You’ll have to stay tuned for that.
I Got A New Pacifier
Another new thing in my life is my pacifier. A while ago I got an adult sized pacifier and I love it! I sleep with it every night. I couldn’t imagine not having it. In fact, I get quite anxious imagining not having it available when I need it.
Keep in mind that I am not AB or DL. I’m that little slash between them (AB/DL). It’s not a sexual fetish for me, and I don’t regress to a baby. Wearing diapers and sucking on a pacifier is just my normal. I see myself as the perpetual kid that wears diapers. The same goes with using a pacifier.
This is indeed the last episode of the ABDLcast. I will soon remove all past episodes from iTunes, Google Play Music, or wherever podcasts are found. I will remove them from our website and anywhere else I can. Until then you can download all the episodes for yourself. There will be no more ABDLcast.
Instead, I’ve built a treehouse! A secret fort! A private club for a limited number of friends who want to be a member. It will be a safe place for us to gather for diapered fun! One of our tag lines has always been, “Audio entertainment for ABDL’s,” and that is what we will continue to be, and even more so.
If you don’t join, I’ll understand, and I’ll miss you. I just hope that you can understand why we’re putting this show behind a diaper wall. I wanted to create a private listener club and this is the best way I could find to do it. And it will make it possible for us to create a better show than ever! And that is worth a diaper per month right there.
Coming Up At Toddy’s Treehouse
On the next show I’m going to start a series on the essay, What Is True Infantilism? by Kathi Stringer. This is an older article that I just love. It really speaks to me like no other that I’ve read. Kathi Stringer was able to articulate so many things about me that I have never been able to put into words myself. This is the essay that I had my wife read. When she finished it she said, “This really sounds like you.”
I don’t know how many episodes we’ll do on it. And i don’t know if you’ll feel as strongly as I do about this essay. But it should generate some good conversation between you and I. And that’s what makes doing this so fun!
So, until next time, Rest In Peace, ABDLcast. Long live Toddy’s Treehouse! I’ll talk to you there.
