Diapers on a grown man?

Written on December 20, 2005 by Kevin.

When I began this blog, I knew that I wanted to definitely make a post about baby food and whether or not it tasted good. I found out the hard way that the food was terribly disgusting and recorded my findings in a post entitled, "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.".

It has been 3 months since I took the baby food challenge and out of the blue, I received an email from a reader that said I should put on a pair of diapers and walk a mile in Rylan's shoes. Now the first thing that comes to my mind is that I don't think I would fit into one of Rylan's diapers. So the bottom line is that not only would I be wearing diapers, I would have to buy a pack of adult diapers to try this. I am not comfortable going to the store and purchasing adult diapers at the age of 24.

I cannot see how I would benefit from testing out these diapers like I did with the baby food. The food test allowed me to understand that baby food in a jar may not be best for us and Rylan may be better off with homemade food. How will these diapers make me and Rylan better? If I prove that it is uncomfortable to wear diapers, what is the end result? Do we simply not put Rylan in diapers?

I am curious to see what others think of this crazy suggestion.


You could really only TRULY test the diapers out if you intend to actually "use" them... That might be too radical to even consider. And who would you get to "change" you? As a wife myself, I'd flatly refuse this "opportunity" if my husband decided to take on this challenge.

I say, visit the local nursing home and interview one of the residents. Better yet, adopt them for the year and bring Rylan along! They would love it. Then you could do a side by side comparison...

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Sounds like a silly idea to me...

Sounds like you need some sleep, Kev.

A leader should never order his troops to do something he would not do himself.

Wear the diaper. Poop in the diaper. Have your wife wipe you clean. Afterword, console yourself by suckling at the breast. Only then will you be a real father.

I always joked with my wife that I wanted to have a child but not until I was older. Old enough that both me and my son would be in diapers. I wanted my wife to have to change both of us and feed both of us.

I guess that I could make this come true but I am doubting my ability to "do my business" in a diaper voluntarily.
