Some people become sexually aroused by an object or part of the body that's not typically considered sexual, such as feet or hair.

Fetishes and alternative erotic lifestyles come in a wide variety of forms, from common to extreme.

To be clear, those in the ABDL community are not interested in sexual contact with children or babies, as some people mistakenly believe, but are interested in items and activities related to behaving like or pretending to be children. Saying that people who identify as ABDL are misunderstood and maligned would be a colossal understatement. For those reasons, the mere existence of Tykables, which offers all three, is something of a marvel.
