Adult Diapers: The Musical

September 30th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

The following photos were taken from a Japanese fashion show designed to destigmatize incontinence by featuring adult diapers (what with 20% of Japan’s population over 65). But I like to think of it as scenes from Adult Diapers: The Musical.


So fucking what if we peed in our pants
That doesn’t mean we don’t stand a chance
In life
In love!

So fucking what if we peed in our pants
That doesn’t mean we can’t make romance
In life
In our pants!

So fucking what if we peed in our pants
That doesn’t mean we can’t sing and dance
On this stage
In da club
In our hearts!


I’m OK
You’re OK
But I think you’ve got some leakage


That’s OK
It’s the story of my life
Always got some leakage


Isn’t always dependable
Becomes expendable
How can you be happy
When you’re wearing an adult nappy?

You can call it incontinence
But it’s the same on all continents
Adult diapers bring us shame
And we’re not to blame!

Isn’t always dependable
Becomes expendable
But we must find a way to be happy
Even wearing an adult nappy!

ADULT DIAPERS: THE MUSICAL is a tour de force. Piss-in-your-pants funny.” – Amy Spelman, The Record
