Babies and spankingEdit

Occasionally babies are given a single smack to get their attention, but it is rare for them to be given a spanking, particularly in recent times.

Babies and ageplayEdit

Babies are totally dependent on others for their needs. Because of this, age players, in particular infantilists, can find such a role to be either a form of complete submission or, particularly when a person is forced or commanded to assume an baby like role, a source of major humiliation.
