    The 15-Stone Babies

    This film explores why some fully-grown adults choose to embrace an alter ego that allows them to have their nappies changed, dress in a onesie, and generally be cared for like a baby.

    With access to adult babies and the 'nurseries' they attend, both in the UK and USA, the film explores the motivations behind the adult babies' actions, as well meeting the 'mummies and daddies' who tend to their needs.

    Acutely aware that many will label them as perverse, sexual fetishists, or presume there is something sinister going on, many adult babies are keen to distinguish their behaviour as role playing.

    Some simply yearn to be absolved of any of the responsibilities of modern life, and the swapping of taxes for toys, and commuting for cuddles, simply helps them relax.

    For many, this regression to babyhood, with all of the trappings of nappy changing and bottle feeding, is not about sexual kicks but about relinquishing control and escaping the pressures of being a grown-up.
