It has nothing to do with daddy issues.
One commonly used one, especially during sex, though is ‘daddy’.
There is a common perception that if a woman calls you ‘daddy’ then they automatically have daddy issues – maybe their father didn’t love them enough or they’ve never gotten an opportunity to know who their father was.
First off, the thought of relating a moment of pleasure to someone’s biological father is very disturbing.
Secondly, it does not mean that they have daddy issues.
Reasons why women call their men ‘daddy’ during bed is as simple as women wanting to let their men know that they are the boss and that they are in charge in that moment. It can also go to indicate that they look at their men as their protector and they like what they are doing to them in bed.
“It’s a bit of a 70s porn cliché. I’ve never run across a woman who called her partner ‘daddy’ because she genuinely liked fantasizing that he was her father,” sex therapist Vanessa Marin told Broadly.
So basically women are really submissive to male authority figures. They are submissive to their masculinity. And honestly ‘Honey’ and ‘Sweetie’ just doesn’t cut it between the sheets.
Now you know.
