Adult Diapers & Why They Are Nothing to Be Ashamed About!There are a lot of reasons why adult diapers are necessary. Though very few adults like to admit it, the use of these is actually quite common. One of the number one uses of adult diapers is surprisingly occupational. There are people who are unable to leave their post at work, even to leave to go to the washroom. The most common jobs that require these are guards. If they leave, they are giving up a large window of opportunity for those whom they are supposed to be guarding against.
Also, it is not uncommon for professional divers, and pilots on long flights to use adult diapers. Copilots can fly the plane, but it is always optimal to have at least two pilots in the cockpit at all times. Divers are unable to surface quickly to use the bathroom lest they risk the formation of nitrogen bubbles in their blood stream, which is a lethal condition. Some divers are underwater for countless hours at a time per dive. Even Senators and House member have been reported to wear adult diapers in the midst of very important meetings in which it would be completely unfeasible to leave.
Culturally, adult diapers are accepted in other cultures much more readily than in American culture. For instance, the Chinese often have extremely long lines to use public bathroom facilities due to the very large population. Public bathrooms are quickly becoming inadequate to accommodate the growing population.
Because of the stigma associated with the term “adult diapers,” they are not typically referred to as diapers. Instead they are usually called incontinence aids, or pads. There are a lot of people who have tried to curb this stigma. In Japan, the first adult diaper fashion show took place in order to allow people to realize that this is an accepted practice and should not be frowned upon. Numerous models paraded up and down the catwalk in edgy fashionable adult diapers.
