29 Things You Should Look for in a Daddy

How does one even start the conversation about daddies? Daddies are sexy, daddies are kinky, daddies are typically older (but not always), and daddies are loving. The subject of daddies will inevitably draw a smirk from someone in a crowd of gay men, but we can all ignore him. Nobody can agree on what a daddy exactly is — Is he a kinky dominant, a trusted friend, a source of financial aid, a muscular body, a smaller body, a hairy body, a boy-chaser, a mentality, or all the above? I won’t offer an exact definition, because there is none, and the world of queer men would be a less beautiful place if there was. I will simply say that I love daddies — and I wouldn’t be here without them. Browse these 29 indicators that you’ve found a good one, boy.

1. Life experience.

For as long as there have been gay men, there have been daddy-boy relationships. Older gay men have always helped out, guided, and instructed younger gay men on how to live, how to get ahead, and — don’t roll your eyes — how to be gay.

I will not speak for other members of the LGBT spectrum here, because it’s not my place to do so. But I believe that for all gender presentations and orientations under the queer umbrella, this practice is true and long-held. Those of us born to heterosexual parents are simply not like them. We cannot learn our history or our language from them or share their experience any more than our heterosexual parents can learn or share in ours.

A man I’d consider for a daddy-son relationship would be someone who can tell me his stories and give me hope for my life and present me with a vague idea of what’s coming. I have so few role models and so few people I look up to that I often feel like I’m sailing through uncharted waters. Older gay men remind me that many homos have come before me and prospered. Their lessons are among the most important I’ve been taught.

2.  Sexual experience.

The language around daddy-boy pairings is rooted in kinky, dominant-submissive relationships. Kinksters (kinky people) generally assume daddies are dominants and boys/sons are submissives. Anyone who’s read this column might guess that I get pretty kinky. Kinky people learn from other kinky people with more experience, so that is something I would look for in a daddy. I want someone who knows more than I do and will help me explore new areas of kink as a skilled dominant.
