This is indeed a very touchy subject, and the answer can vary depending on your religion, level of affiliation, teachings and degree of secularity.
We used to be Jehovah’s Wittnesses, a very tight and controlling religion that was very strict with its morals and not afraid to discipline if a sin was to be uncovered. We cannot say that our AB/DL lifestyle ever came in conflict with it, though, as we never personally felt that it was sinful or went against any of the formal teachings we received along the years.
IF you believe in the Bible and IF you have a secular lifestyle, as in, try to stick as close to the Bible and its laws as possible, then there is this passage in Hebrews 5:12-13 that reads:
“In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! 13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness.”
The interpretation that our biological mother has given to this passage is that, once you have matured and once you have come aware of what it means to be an adult and have had experience being an adult and can distinguish between what it means to be a kid and what it means to be an adult, then it would go against natural order to have childish wishes and desires.
It is interesting that the sentence structure needed to be modified and that definition our Mom gave to us had to be deduced from it, but that is the closest thing to regression that we know of that is directly mentioned in the Bible.
We personally didn’t chose to believe what our Mom told us. The Bible has many, many, many different modern interpretations, and some, in our opinion, have much less impact than others.
If you are feeling wrong about it, and that religion and your lifestyle are two conflicting words, and if you wish to gain a deeper understanding in the church’s perspective, then we would suggest you consult these topics with your local pastor or father. Just remember to have an open mind, as we are sure that this same question will have different explanations and answers depending on who you’re asking.
From our very perspective, we see absolutely no harm in doing something that is very personal and very self-fulfilling, that is part of your identity. It provides happiness, a deeper spiritual connection with oneself, a beautiful lifestyle that can be innocent, sweet, loving.
However, just as many churches condemn personal issues such as sensual selfplay, perhaps they would also condemn (for no real reason) ageplay and regression.
In any cases just remember that your God is full of love and wants you to be happy while keeping Him in mind and worshipping Him. He didn’t exactly give a say in everything that should be done and shouldn’t be done, so ultimately it is your decision to interpret His will, if that makes sense.
We apologize for being messy in our writing. If you have any specific question that you would like have answered, or give further information, go ahead!
