What exactly is age play? I liked this from wikipedia –
Ageplay can be sexual or non-sexual. It may be mildly sexual, or very sexual.
Ageplay can enhance power dynamics, and allow a partner to feel more comfortable with their dominance or submission. Oftentimes, sissification of boys is present, in order to add another level of power to the situation.
Sexual variations may include among other things such as incest play, in which individuals recreate and sexualize roles within a family,and Daddy’s girl fetishism in which real or imagined age differences are the basis of the roleplaying and the female is portrayed as the younger partner.
Ageplay is not considered pedophilia or related to pedophilia by professional psychologists. Individuals who ageplay are not attracted to children, but instead enjoy portraying children, or enjoy childlike elements typical of children present in adults.
Sexual ageplay itself does not involve the sexual attraction to biologically underage people. Rather, when a consenting adult takes on the roleplaying mindset of a young person, it is motivated by re-experiencing emotional states and social interactions of one’s youth, which also happen to be pleasurable in a sexual context to the participants.
I was glad to read this, because my Master and I have engaged in age play where he plays the Daddy figure and I play the little girl figure. I have never been sexually abused by my father or any older man and I, nor my Master, are interested in playing with children in a sexual way AT ALL, nor are we interested in pretending that play. It’s more of a Daddy as the Dominant one and Little girl as a submissive portrayal. I, personally, like the idea of portraying child-like submission, but not play like I’m a child. And even, then, I’m not thinking a small child, but more of a teen, even an older teen.
Another reason I was glad to come across this wikipedia entry was because it is hard to reveal kinks sometimes, even if this is an occasional kink. We don’t want to feel bad about our kinks or our sexuality and so being validated feels good.
