How Does DDlg Work?

What Are DDlg Rules?

Why Is DDlg so Popular?

DDlg is so popular because it's becoming less-taboo, just like many other kinks and sexual deviance. It's always been popular, but kept hush-hush to the outside world.

Things like 50 Shades of Gray, and Sugar Daddies coming to prominence, attribute to its rise in popularity.

Is DDlg Bad?

No, DDlg is not inherently bad.

That being said, there are plenty of ways it can be painted in a bad light, including through abusive Doms taking advantage of littles, when minors try to participate, and when there's no respect.

Other than that, DDlg is an amazing outlet for many consenting adults.

What Is a Little?

In DDlg, a little is someone who takes on a headspace younger than that of their "real" age. This is known as littlespace.

Being a little does not mean someone participates in ageplay, which is behaving like you're younger than your "real" age. This can include baby talk, temper tantrums, and more.

A little does not need a Caregiver or Daddy, in order to be a valid little. Single littles happily exist in the world of kink!

What is Little Space or Littlespace?

Littlespace is the headspace a little takes on. More specifically, it's when someone takes on a younger mindset, than they are in real life.

The ages of infant-to-10 typically fall into the category of littlespace. 11-17 is considered "middlespace".

Littlespace, however, does not imply behaving like a kid--this is known as "ageplay".

What is Age Play or Ageplay?

Ageplay is when someone behaves an age, younger than their "real" age. Ageplay is often associated with littlespace, but the two are not the same thing.

Littlespace is simply taking on a headspace, while ageplay is acting the age you take on.

Common ageplay behaviors include baby talk, temper tantrums, and more.
