Why Do Guys Like Being Called Daddy?


Dirty talk is fun and totally normal, as well as healthy. However, sometimes there are certain terms that catch you off guard. We all need time to acclimate to certain terms in the bedroom. Some people seem to need more time than others, but it is always up to you to decide what you feel comfortable with. That means taking in your partner’s suggestions and also seeing what they are comfortable with. But what if they ask you to call them something that doesn’t make sense to you? Something like daddy? Maybe you haven’t heard it before and it completely startles you when he requests it. It’s okay to be thrown off by it, not everyone understands why they men ask to be called daddy.

That’s why we have these reasons for you to look at. They will help you better understand where your man is coming from when he asks you to call him daddy.

  • He Likes To Feel Dominant

It’s not so much that he thinks of himself as a father figure. It’s more like he wants to feel in charge, while still being considering a loving person. Men feel like when a woman calls them daddy they are letting their guard down and becoming more vulnerable. This is a turn on for some men. They like to feel as if the woman is being submissive. Being in control is usually a turn on for anyone, but especially for men. Being called daddy makes him feel like he has a position of power with you. When you say it, he may feel as if you he is the most crucial person in your life right now.

  • It’s His Preferred Term Of Endearment

Some men like to be called honey, others like to be called daddy. It can simply be a preference. They may have learned that as term of endearment by seeing it in media, watching their parents do it or observing other couples do it.

  • He’s Actually A Father

Fortunately, sometimes when a man requests to be called daddy, it is sometimes because they are a father. Of course, if they ask you to call them that in bed, it is still a play on power. It just makes it a little less weird if they actually have children of their own or with you.

  • They Want To Feel Respected

If a man does not feel like he is getting enough respect, he might ask to be called daddy. He feels like he deserves a title. He may feel as if he has even earned it from you.

  • They Feel As If It Will Attract You To Them

For thousands of years, women were attracted to the most powerful, dominant men. It isn’t as common today as it was in the olden days, but it is still something that lingers on society. Women do like powerful men, and men want to be powerful. It’s a win, win in that situation.

  • It Seems Naughty

Some guys like it when you call them daddy because it seems like it’s almost taboo. He knows that a lot of people frown upon the dirty word daddy and that turns him on immensely. It’s almost like having a forbidden relationship, only instead of a romance, it’s just a simple word.

  • It Makes Him Feel Manly

Okay, so maybe he isn’t trying to feel powerful. He could be trying to feel a little more masculine. Daddy is really the most masculine term you could call him and he knows that, so now he is requesting you use it with him.

  • He’s Watches A Lot Of Porn

Porn is a lot of ‘daddy’ this and ‘daddy’ that. Some men start watching pornography from a very young and that can have a major impact on how they prefer talk, be talked to and act in bed. Even if they have not been watching porn for a long time, they still may have seen a few of them that use daddy in them and he realized that it turns him on. He may be wanting to experiment it in real life with you now.

  • He Wants To Feel Like You Are His

Yes, this goes hand in hand with dominance. But, sometimes it’s just about him feeling like you are truly committed to him. He feels like if he gets you to call him daddy in bed that you will show your dedication to him. Although he isn’t trying to technically own you, he wants to feel some air of ownership.

  • It’s Just A Quirk

Maybe he does not have a reason that he likes being called daddy at all, other than he just simply likes it. Some men say that they really do not know why they like being called daddy, but that they just do and always have.


  1. wow this helped because my bae loved to be called “daddy” and i just wondred why but i kinda thought it was sexy and it turns me on personally when he say “your daddys girl”

  3. Well I just met this guy we were having a conversation he said daddy feels the same way, I was like what the hell..also ask him if he is at work he said no momma not yet.. But we haven’t been to bed or anything so why he talks like that

    • People have different nicknames that mean different things to them. Take this time to determine what you think is appropriate for this relationship. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Sandy!

      • That is also my current situation.But this is a street man.He has females working for him.And he said daddy is tired.I started laughing because im not into calling a man that.we have never had sex,just hung out a little.Do i ask him why should i call him that. Im no “working” girl

        • If you believe that this person is in the sex industry, then take this time to determine what you want for your future. This person will likely pressure you into his lifestyle. You would do best to avoid such situations. If you are concerned about the legal aspects of his profession, then avoid him or speak with law enforcement. Have a great day, Chrisine!

  5. I’m in a new relationship and I enichiated the Daddy word while sexting. We are older and less inhibited. I had a feeling he would like it and he was super turned on. He’s one of those “ really nice guys “ that could never hurt someone’s feelings. He asked if it was okay to call me his dirty * *. I know it sounds awful? But I’ve know this guy most of my life and I like that he’s having a thrill. And breaking out of his norm. I also said it was okay and I know there is kindness behind it.

    • He is sharing his sexual thoughts with you. If he is treating you with respect and you have no negative feelings regarding his action, then decide what you believe is appropriate for your relationship. If you want him to speak to you differently, then share your thoughts and feelings with him. It is always beneficial to share your mind with your partner. Have a great day, Cheryl!

  6. I’m in a relationship. We both are open minded about a lot of things. When a text came across my screen “Daddy” b home soon, I was like puzzled. I began to realize I was being to dominant, as a woman I am I know how I like things run. As me done my research on, why he likes that. I started to practice this daddy thang. It was odd at first, it was also a turn on for both. I learn to fall back and trust him to lead the way.

    • It sounds as though the two of you have decided on a relationship that is acceptable and pleasurable to each of you. Ensure that his actions are always respectful. It is important that you always feel comfortable with sharing your thoughts and feelings with your partner. Have a great day, Seante!
