Inside The Strange World Of "Adult Babies" And "Diaper Lovers"

Australian photographer Polly Borland is here to shed light on the AB/DL community, otherwise known as the "Adult Babies/Diaper Lovers".

What are "Adult Babies"? These are people who enjoy reliving their favorites moments as a baby. They typically revert back to the ages to 6 months and 5 years old. And as for "Diaper Lovers", these are adults with a fetish for wearing diapers.

Susan Sontag writes about the community in her introduction to the book:

"The photographer has penetrated a space where a secret identity unfolds. An intimate, private space, whose banal activities— yowling, drooling, eating, sleeping, bathing, masturbating — here acquire the character of weird rituals, because they’re being done by adult men dressed as, and carrying on like, babies…."

"It’s a long time that the camera has been bringing us news about zanies and pariahs, their miseries and their quirks. Showing us the banality of the non-normal. Making voyeurs out of us all."

Polly Borland photographed The Babies series in the 1990s and managed to capture over 35 "Adult Babies". The series has now been organized as a book. Learn more about Borland's work from her interview in Bullett and see her book here.
