But contrary to what you might believe, it’s not due to ‘daddy issues’. According to Daily Mirror, S3x therapist Vanessa Marin explains that it probably underpins a yearning for ‘dominance’.
“I’ve heard from a fair amount of men who were turned off by it, and were worried that it was an indicator of ‘daddy issues’.
“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. It’s a bit of a 70s P0rn cliche.”
“I’ve never run across a woman who called her partner ‘daddy’ because she genuinely liked fantasizing that he was her father.”
That’s not to say that all women want or feel the need to be ‘controlled’ by a man. In fact, that in itself might offend some women. Though Marin says that for some, it is the case.
