AgePlay is a misunderstood kink that can evoke fears and misconceptions in those who are not familiar with it. In this article, we’ll debunk some of the most common misconceptions about AgePlay and explain what AgePlay is not.
AgePlay is Not Pedophilia
One of the most common misconceptions about AgePlay is that it is related to pedophilia. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. AgePlay only involves consenting adults, and is not considered pedophilia or related to pedophilia by psychologists, psychiatrists or sex therapists.
No matter how much some people may try to stretch their imagination, there is no reality in which adults, even those wearing diapers and other childish items, are suddenly transformed into actual children.
AgePlay is Not Age-Based Attraction
Another common misconception about AgePlay is that it is based on age-based attraction. However, being attracted to individuals of a different age demographic is not considered AgePlay. AgePlay is a kink that involves consenting adults who engage in roleplaying and activities that simulate childlike behavior.
AgePlay is Not Regression Therapy
While some AgePlayers may derive therapeutic benefits from AgePlay, AgePlay is NOT therapy. It is not an accepted method for working through issues or trauma. If you need help, you should consult with a licensed therapist. If you don’t have one, we suggest checking out The Kink Aware Professionals Directory.
AgePlay is Not About Actual Children
It’s important to emphasize that AgePlay is not about actual children. AgePlayers engage in roleplaying and activities that simulate childlike behavior, but this is done between consenting adults in a safe and consensual manner.
AgePlay is Not Harmful
Some people may believe that AgePlay is harmful, but this is not the case. AgePlay is a consensual kink that can be enjoyable and fulfilling for those who engage in it. It is conducted in a safe, respectful, and consensual manner between adults who have given their informed consent.
AgePlay is a kink that is often misunderstood and subject to misconceptions. It is important to understand what AgePlay is not, in order to avoid making false assumptions or judgments. AgePlay is not pedophilia, age-based attraction, or regression therapy. It is not about actual children, and is not harmful when conducted in a safe, respectful, and consensual manner between consenting adults.
