Age play occupies a funny space in the kink community. Most spanking fetishists enjoy age play, but not everyone admits it.
Any fantasy based around school, or discipline from an authority figure at home such as a parent, uncle or aunt, is age play; but the phrase age play has only just started to become socially acceptable in the spanking scene. In the last couple of years "littles" events have started appearing at spanking events, which has increased exposure to age play, so I think those barriers are starting to be broken down. More people are discovering the innocent, carefree fun of age regression, which can be as much about colouring and playing with toys as it is about getting into trouble.
However, there still seems to be a barrier about when it comes to ABDL (Adult Baby Diaper Lover). From my perspective in the BDSM and spanking scenes, it seems to me that the schoolgirl/boy fetish is common and socially acceptable, as is being a naughty niece or nephew. Parent/child play such as daddy/daughter, mummy/boy or any other combination is also pretty common, although some people still find it uncomfortable. Being a little aged between, say, 6 and 12 years old, who plays with toy trucks, My Little Pony, crayons and glitter, is less common but becoming increasingly acceptable. And yet being an adult baby is still considered weird or taboo in most of the kinky social scenes I frequent.
