Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This book is an exploration about ageplay, age related role-playing.  It has sections relevant to people who are just curious, as well as sections for those who are experienced ageplayers already.  It addresses issues regarding both people who roleplay or have personality aspects of a very young age, using  diapers, as well as those people who are for older ages.  
 
Introducing many of the sections are short works of fiction that illustrate the different points or give an overall view of the section.  

Copies of this book are housed in the collections of the Leather Archive Museum, the Kinsey Library, and the Library of Congress. 

About the Author

I moved to Chicago over six years ago from Wisconsin after graduating with degrees in psychology and sociology that I happily use (and pervert) as an author, educator and participant in the alternative sexuality community. In addition to teaching and presenting, I enjoy kink in my personal life, identifying as a Top/Dom and a Daddy Dominant.
I began teaching after becoming interested in both expanding my personal knowledge through research and discussion, and helping to educate the community, fostering open discussion and a safe place to learn and share ideas. In general, I mainly focus on different aspects of mental and emotional play, and emotional masochism. I strive for every workshop to be interactive, and I always try to explore the topic from different viewpoints, asking for involvement and participation from the attendees who feel comfortable doing so. Over the past few years I've been incredibly honored to have presented at DomCon- LA, Madtown Kink Fest, Kinky Karnival, as well as many other venues both nationally and throughout the Midwest.
A large part of my interest in kink lies in the area of ageplay. As one of the co-founders of the Chicago Age Players, an NCSF Coalition Partner, I work to try to increase the visibility and acceptability of ageplay in the alternate sexuality community. Recently I authored the book Ageplay: From Diapers to Diplomas, and am the Chairman and Director of Education for CAPCon: The Midwest Ageplay Convention. In addition to my classes on mental and emotional play, I have many that focus on ageplay, and I enjoy creating an atmosphere (both in my classes and at private parties) that allow people the opportunity to both explore and accept aspects of their sexuality.

I am both overjoyed and delighted to have read Paul Rulof's book on the subject of age play titled "Ageplay: From Diapers to Diplomas." After simply browsing the table of contents I realized that this isn't a mere overview. The range of topics is immense from roles, to reasons, as well as suggestions to allow orchestrating actual encounters. I am also pleased to have read this book from the perspective of someone just recently exploring her little side, and having interest in both sexual and non-sexual ageplay; topics this book covers quite vastly.

The identification and explanation of the multiple spectrums revealed to me that ageplay is exponentially limitless. Interviewee statements in the book on their own ageplay experiences are profound, and encouraging. Many passages spoke almost philosophically on the emotions and headspace attached to ageplay, and the depth of styles of play a player can employ.

It delves into concepts that go beyond basic theory of ageplay such as "this is ageplay, and this is how you do it." It goes far beyond that with a brief history of ageplay, a glossary, and numerous scene suggestions. It expanded my mind, loaded up new concepts into it, and even gave me many great scene ideas! I found so much in this book that corresponds to my own upbringing, and my own way of ageplay. It was astounding. His book is candid, revealing, and relevant.

After reading about some negative experiences from other ageplayers who have attempted to create understanding about their fetish I became empowered to advocate for my fetish, and to create positive dialogue about ageplay with those in my small, rather enclosed community, as well as the community at large.

I read this book as someone who had never engaged in ageplay; it has proved to be an amazing resource. It provided me with a great deal of information about so many aspects of ageplay that I had never even considered - not just all of the different role and scene possibilities, but how relationships could be structured and how to get involved in my community.

I believe that even those that are more experienced with ageplay will enjoy the book, as it has so much to offer - it wasn't just one person's view of ageplay and how everyone should play, but a comprehensive discussion of the vast amount of options ageplay presents. Reading the thoughts and experiences of others prompted me to explore my own motivations, as well as giving me the confidence to acknowledge the desires to myself and others.

"Ageplay: From Diapers to Diplomas" is well-written and easy to understand. Mr. Rulof has done a wonderful job of explaining the dynamics of ageplay. He not only covers the basics but also delves into some of the more complex emotional aspects, making the book an asset to those who are new to the scene as well as to more seasoned age players.

This is not just a "how-to" manual written from one person's perspective. Numerous quotes, stories, and experiences give the reader a glimpse into the world of ageplay not only through the eyes of the author but also through those of many other active ageplayers. I found this book to be fascinating, and highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in ageplay.

All I can say is wow. I have read it once and starting over for the second read. You have put a lot of effort into it and it shows, as a community there is very little in the way of documentation and I am sure this will be of great value for current and future generations.

My initial impression is that you used good taste and respect for all aspects of age play, I was glad to see that there was no shock value as some books and writings have done. This greatly enhances it legitimacy in my mind.

Your book is going to be a great resource for information and direction for generations. I see it laid out in a spectrum format; that is nurturing ageplay to sexual ageplay; This I feel allows the reader to get a basic understanding of the nurturing aspects of an ABDL before throwing in the sexual aspects.

As I searched for any information on what I was feeling, it seemed that most writings were sexual in nature. Sex sells and that's were I felt most of the writings were coming from. The problems with these writings are that they didn't relate to me and my feelings. If I tried to use them to introduce someone to ABDL side, the readers focus is drawn to the sexual aspect which is not part of my ABDL life style.

Thank you for your commitment to the community and such a great gift.

Format: Paperback
This book is the first of its kind to explore the facts of D/s found in Big/little relationships. The author's vignettes of a little's experience 'playing' as a baby, little or student are written with sensitivity and thoughtfulness. Also, the book is easy to peruse if you want to zone in on one type of experience over another. It's a must-read for anyone interested in the many facets of this lifestyle.
