It's basically every man's dream: Having a woman moan and yell his name because she's getting all the right spots hit during sex. Sometimes, in that moment of sexual pleasures, she might even call her man "daddy," which seems to make the man seem even more studly.
Well, a sex therapist named Vanessa Marin helps explain exactly why a woman might do that—and it has nothing to do with having any "daddy" issues, guys.
"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 porn cliche."
"I've never run across a woman who called her partner 'daddy' because she genuinely liked fantasizing that he was her father."
So, while the term does sort of give men a certain empowerment—which Marin says is the case in some cases—that's the point for some of them, as they like to be submitted into male figures.
She tells Squires: "The general consensus during one Reddit conversation was that women call their partners 'daddy' because they are into submitting to male authority figures.
One woman reveals: "Sir/Master just doesn't have that same affectionate tone to it, know what I mean?"
"Some girls want to call their man daddy in a way that has nothing to do with their father but as a way that communicates she is submissive to your masculinity," another tells the forum.
When a woman yells "daddy" during sex, sometimes it can be related to emotion, sometimes it's to help make things even hotter and, in this instance, according to Vanessa Marin, it might have to do with just wanting to submit and obey a male figure.
