Baby, bae, honey, sweetheart. It isn’t uncommon for women to give their se*ual partners pet names. But, one of these have got into the limelight of controversy more often than not.
Many women call out to their sexual partners as ‘daddy’ and this term of endearment has many men thinking that those girls have daddy issues.
But, guess what? It is absolutely okay to do so and these women are not dealing with under the cover incest.
It has nothing to do with daddy issues
Women calling men ‘daddy’ during s*x has actually nothing to do with their family, just like the way it is okay to call your romantic partner ‘baby’, because when you do that, you are definitely not feeling like his/her parent.
What daddy really means
S*x therapist Vanessa Marin told a website, “Yes, ‘daddy’ can mean ‘father,’ but we also use the word to indicate when someone is the boss, in charge, a protector, or doing a good job.
That’s usually the meaning women are going for in the bedroom.”
Another interesting thing that it may refer to is the dynamics of domination and submission.
A thread running on Reddit about the subject pointed this out. It said that women called men daddies because they were into submitting.
What’s wrong with sir and master?
One of the Reddit users pointed out how, “‘Sir/Master’ just doesn’t have that same affectionate tone to it.” Daddy is warm and it reflects proximity in the relationship.
In fact, it is healthy…
Expert Bethy Squires wrote, “I think that when that language comes up, it’s just as likely to be in a healthy relationship… You’re getting back to very early warm attachments…
That’s why we have relationships, so we can rely on each other. It’s not necessary for everyone to be equally strong in all things.”
