Fully grown man spends his adult life as a baby

Baby Man

Baby ManThere are those among us whom we all fear – murderers, rapists, and the like. But then there’s those who are just plain weird.

Stanley Thornton is one of those people. Why? Because he’s spent the last 18 years of his life as an adult baby. No, not in the way that he acts like a child when drunk, or likes to get his own way – that would make him terribly typical.

The fact is, for the most of his adult life – Stanley has been a massive baby, wearing nappies and romper suits, sucking on dummies and sleeping in a super-sized cots.

And how old is this man you ask? He’s 31.

Stanley – who revealed his favourite age is two – shed some light on his behaviour when he recently said in a report by The Sun: “I feel like when I’m wearing a diaper, it’s like a constant hug from mommy. I think about acting like a baby every day. For me it’s a big part of my life — it’s something you can go to bed doing.”

Stanley is 5ft 6, weighs 21 stone and is from the USA. He’s kitted out his home with a playpen, crayons and a giant high chair where he eats his meals. He even gets his baby clothes tailor-made, including pyjamas and a special blue romper suit.

He added: “I feel having a crib is the most important thing. The bars, they signify safety and it’s something babies have when they are growing up.”

When asked by the paper if it gives him a bit of a kinky kick, he replied: “It’s not sexual at all. It’s a feeling of being safe. It’s a feeling I didn’t have while growing up — and being an adult baby became my way of coping with the world and my own problems.”

At least that would have made him mire interestingly weird. This guy is just a complete nut. Not to mention that he is currently searching for a full-time mum.

It’s times like this when we should really question society, and wonder when it got so fucked up.
