Ultimate Slobs? Japanese Women Wear Diapers to Avoid Going to the Toilet

Weird as it may seem, there are people out there who would rather wear an uncomfortable diaper all day long than go to the bathroom. Japanese media reports adult diapers are increasingly popular among Japanese women who say wearing them saves them a lot of time.

In an article titled “The Ultimate Form of Slob“, Japanese magazine SPA describes the hottest trend in the Land of the Rising Sun. No, it’s not the brainwave-operated tail for humans, that’s still just a prototype, but something way more disturbing. The masculinization of women has become a very popular topic in Japan, as statistics say more and more females don’t clean their rooms as often as they used to, leave their underwear all over the place and don’t even bother to remove unwanted bodily hair, but one magazine seems to have identified the ultimate slobs – women who wear diapers to avoid using the toilet. They even interviewed one such girl, 25-year-old Kaori Adachi (pseudonym), who works in a Tokyo real-estate agency. For the last six months she has been wearing diapers to work almost every day, instead of using sanitary tissues after using the restroom. And she doesn’t mean panty liners to prevent leakage, but actual diapers that absorb all the urine, and save her the trouble of going to the bathroom.

I knew Japanese were workaholics but this is taking it a bit too far. Adachi says she can now pee normally while she’s working, without having to stop and go to the restroom. She does point out that she only wears them when she’s dressed in a skirt, because pants make it obvious there’s something not quite right down there, and she never wears them when she’s meeting her boyfriend.

One photo posted by SPA Magazine shows some shops have even started placing adult diapers in the women’s hygiene section. Believe it or not, Japan even has an adult site called Bebigyaru, where men can look at photos of women wearing diapers…

    This isn’t about “saving time” or doing more work without breaks. This is about self respect and pride, which I guess these people have none of. These people have a serious sickness and it’s very unfortunate. A 25 yr old women who proudly uses diapers with no medical reason what so ever but does it just for the convenience of not having to use the restroom has some obvious mental problems. I thought that us Americans were bad, but this is just plain awful.

    This article is totally fabricated – there is no such article from Spa magazine. It’s probably created with the bad intent of hurting the Japanese.

    Actually, I found the original article. It talks about ONE girl that does this, and the writer says that he hopes it does NOT become a trend.

    So it’s translated incorrectly by Oddity Central – the article makes all the Japanese look bad. Was this the intent?

    The only people who lack self respect are the ones who criticize the way someone else wants to live their life. To each his own.

    There are many sites with pictures and videos of women in diapers, and many adults who choose to wear them, and not just in Japan… and if you want to wear them and are discreet about it then what’s the problem?

    Sorry, but SPA Magazine is a rag. Believe nothing you read in it.

    To provide a bit of insight. Japanese Public Toilets are INCREADIBLY unhygenic. Theres no guarantee she’s not wearing them still in her own home. but its definately a step up from public toilets in japan.

    So i wear diapers all day when i am traveling or shopping
    if you have never been caught in a freeway traffic jam on a LA Calif freeway for hours and needed to pee you might not have a reason to wear a diaper

    Is this diaper fashion really related with the lack of time of the women?
    That is an odd trend to wear adult diapers that are created for incontinence problems.
