It seems like Daddy Issues are having their Golden Age.
In The Authentic Gay, writer Christian Cintron starts out with, “It seems like Daddy Issues are having their Golden Age. There’s the international Daddy Issues party. Gays have moved from animal classifications like bear and otter to Daddy, *Zaddy, and Boy. There are incest scenarios pervading porn with studios like Family Dick and Gaycest. Hell, Daddy has become an exclamation of attractiveness. Is this a sign of the times? Are well being infantilized with our comic book movies and adult coloring books? Is it collective self-awareness? It is worth exploring if we are working to heal our parental issues when we sleep with older/younger men. Or are we adding to them? Are our daddy issues becoming subscriptions?”
Cintron dives deep into daddy + boy relationships and what it all means.
