Kink is becoming more and more mainstream, you can now buy fetish gear direct on the high street. Yet the world of Kink is complicated. Kink communities tend to have their own terms and definitions, which can leave you completely baffled. So here at Killing Kittens, we have decided to explore the Kink Alphabet, a month at a time.
A is for Age Play
Age Play is a form of role play in which one or both partners pretend and get off on being an age other than their own. You can age play as older or younger than you actually are.
There are many different reasons to engage in age play. It can be to explore regressing back to a simpler time with no responsibility where you felt cared for by someone else, or perhaps to push some limits and play the part of the bad-girl teenager that perhaps you were too innocent to have enacted in real life.
In a BDSM type ageplay relationship, there might be roleplay that includes spankings or some sort of punishment. A common example of this Daddy and baby girl relationship. Daddy being the dominant and baby girl the submissive. These terms need to be totally consensual of all involved. Consent between adults is the central pillar to how safely and sanely explore limits and taboos. This is an adult kink. Ageplay does not involve the sexual attraction to biologically underage people, purely individuals who enjoy portraying children or enjoy childlike elements.
A more extreme example of age play is adult babies. Where an adult enjoys wearing an adult diaper and role-playing as a baby.
