Amongst my friends I rant a lot about tons of really random stuff, ideals, and situations. Please bear with me as in the coming weeks, I shall be unleashing a few of them on you ;). In this premiere piece, I want to talk about something that I have noticed is becoming increasingly prevalent with guys today.
Recently a friend of mine related to me the details of a “romantic” night she had with her man-friend. They had been hanging out for a couple of months and he’d done all the right things up till this point. They both knew that things were about to go the next level so throughout the night in question there was this charged chemistry in the air as they both anticipated what would come next. When the time came for them to finally “wrestle”, things started out well; he was hitting all the right notes, touching all the right spots, and saying all the right things. Next thing she knows, homeboy throws out the “Who’s your daddy?” line.
To hear her tell it, she kind of froze at that point. They were in the middle of things so she stayed till it was all over. Afterwards, as they lay there sated, all that went through her mind was that she’d done the deed with someone with “daddy” issues.
Honestly if it were me in this situation, I would’ve immediately halted our “pre-gaming” and found my way home. Yes. That’s how much that mess grosses me out.
I have an awesome relationship with my father and when I address him, I call him Daddy. So, to me, the only person I associate with that word is my father. So why the bloody heck would I want to call my man-friend “daddy?” Worse still, when we’re in the middle “wrestling.” Haba!!! Maka gini??
There are many songs that actually promote this idea that women could somehow be turned on by the thought of sexing it up with their “daddies.” Case-in-point; Usher’s Hey Daddy and Robin Thicke’s “Shaking it for Daddy.” I love those artists to pieces but those songs CREEP ME OUT. The lyrics alone…Ugh!!! (If you’re not familiar with the lyrics, google it). They’ve irrevocably sullied the word “daddy” for me.
I originally thought that this thing was only in the romantic setting but I found that it’s across the board.
Last week I started listening to Cool FM’s road show online hosted by Freeze. The show is awesome (seriously folks, it is <3) but they decided to almost ruin the thing for me by calling Freeze, “our daddy” (I say “almost” because I gbadun Naija music too much to stop listening just because of that, I just utilize my mute button :d). His co-host actually introduces the show with “You’re listening to the road show with Freeze your daddy.”
But that’s not the worst part. They have this audio track they play whenever they’re going in or coming out of commercials in which a lady with this quasi-erotic sing-songy voice goes…”It’s you daaaaaaaadddddddy.” Like seriously???? I don’t believe Freeze means the whole thing in an erotic way but still….Creep Alert!!
Thankfully, I try to be very upfront about things that weird me out with my men-friends. So I trust that no one I am or will be involved with will try that nonsense. For me, that’s a situation that could make me whip out my To-the-left-to-the-left soundtrack. I mean, if he’s into that, how the hell do I know he’s not going to have some more weird tendencies in his closet down the road.
I have asked some of my guy friends about it and while they were all quick to say that they don’t do that (which I’m pretty sure they were just saying for my benefit). I get the feeling that if a girl actually called them that, they wouldn’t mind.
So to my ladies out there I want to ask, am I the only one grossed out about this?
