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.

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.
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.
Thank you to Paul Rulof for providing the community with this incredible resource.
I just wish there were MORE books like these Amazon.com could sell! ...I WILL order some more, if there were stories mixing ABDL with the maturity and sexual enjoyment classiness of a Harlequin Romance 'Super-Romance' Book!
I have a copy and I have bought a few copy's for friends.
This and Ms Penny Barber's book should be read together.
If you are trying to inform people of our "life style" this MAY be the book for you.
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. It hadn't occurred to me that topics such as diapers, ageplay in general, and adult babies are often discussed in a rude, and negative manner.
Overall, what I got out of this book is the assurance that I am not alone in these desires. Many others experience ageplay like I do, and many do not. There are differences, and although differences set groups apart, they are also respectable in nature.
