A woman to call Daddy

I read a post on Twitter a few weeks ago which said, “Where can I find a woman to call Daddy?”

It made me smile. It was posted by a non-binary person with sissy leanings, so I understood the meaning.

But it also sparked a lot of thoughts for me. Would this wistful sissy ever get their wish? Or is trying to find a woman who identifies as a Daddy even tougher than trying to find a FemDom?

I’ve definitely noticed more Dominant women taking some ownership of the term #Daddy lately. Search @Daddy_AnLi on Twitter as an example who’s taken full ownership of it. I’ve also seen an increase in female-presenting Dommes taking the title Master or Sir, whilst still using she/her pronouns. (And just to be clear, in this article, I’m not talking about trans people who are entitled to choose any title they feel comfortable with. I’m talking about the apparent trend in female/AFAB Dominants using male titles.)

I’m interested by this phenomenon on a number of levels.

Power struggles

So, what’s driving the claim on male titles by people who aren’t AMAB (assigned male at birth)? 

Could it be the ‘King/Queen’ scenario, where the Domme feels that a female title is somehow ‘lesser’ than a male one? It’s a fair point. We’re all living in a society that still believes a king to be more powerful and worthy than a queen. *eye roll* 

This is summed up nicely by a lyric in a recent track, Daisy by Ashnikko.

“Fuck a princess, I’m a king

Bow down and kiss on my ring”

She’s right. In day-to-day, vanilla exchanges, ‘Prince’ is a compliment. ‘Princess’ can be infantalising, patronising or insulting. Gendered terms are still so loaded against women. In this case, taking a male title is a rejection of being seen as ‘lesser’. It’s a demand for respect and equality. (No one has ever called me ‘princess’, thank fuck.) 

Taking power from the patriarchy

It’s a small step to move from this rejection to a more empowering idea – that femme-presenting Dommes have decided to rip male titles out of male hands and show the patriarchy that they no longer own the exclusive rights to them. Women can be ‘Master’, ‘Sir’ and ‘Daddy’. Another wonderful strike against male privilege. 

The opening lines from Ashnikko in Daisy:

“You don’t wanna see me bratty

Pet the kitty, call me catty

Make your man call me Daddy

He talk too much, he’s too chatty”

The statement of ultimate female power – to make a man call you ‘Daddy’. (And tell him to shut up.)

I’ve certainly made my sissy jessie call me ‘Master’ and ‘Sir’ before now to drive home the fact I’m more masc and sexually capable than she’ll ever be. And also to demonstrate that she’ll call me whatever I tell her to call me. I’m the Dominant, and all labels are mine to use.

A fetish for a particular D/ title

As I thought about that wistful sissy’s wish, I wondered if the word ‘Daddy’ holds a particularly strong, fetishy power over them. Perhaps the word and all it encompasses gets them off. How it feels to say it, what it means to say it, the feelings of submission it sparks, imagining how that ‘Daddy’ would treat them. I can relate to that. ‘Sissy’ is a word that holds power for me. If it’s possible to perv on a word, I perv on ‘sissy’. There is so much kinky promise in it. Equally, in terms of my title, ‘Mistress’ is the word that chimes with me most, (I love it) though there is much more to my gender expression.

Bent, queer and in control

I certainly bend gender. My daywear can be very masc/Master, always with a clear Alt/Dominant style. Other days, I’m in my FemDom daywear, leather leggings, heeled boots and a handcuff necklace. But if I’m sessioning, I’m always unmistakably FemDom. Corsets, killer boots, shiny PVC, luscious leather, skin-warm latex, silver studs, lace-up gloves and an ever-hard strap-on.

I feel my power in this guise. And it feels more subversive. Society still tells us every day that women are a lesser power, that they are less sexual than men, that their sexuality is naturally submissive. Even in BDSM writing, the language is set by default to assume the man is the Dominant player. It means there’s nothing extraordinary about a man in a Dominant role.

But someone AFAB in this role? Someone the casual observer would take for a woman? That’s a much greater taboo. And one I love to embody. ‘Mistress’ as a title stands against all the old, constrictive norms and assumptions. When my sissies say ‘Yes, Mistress,’ I get off on it. I feel desired. I feel powerful. That stands, whether we’re in a session or standing the queue in M&S.

What’s your hot-button title?

I haven’t asked my sissy girls if ‘Mistress’ has a particular effect on them; whether they find it particularly erotic to call me ‘Mistress’…or if a different title would be more or less erotic. But it’s an interesting question.

I’d be interested in what other sissies think too. If a FemDom demanded you call Her Master or Daddy, would it turn you on…or off…or make no difference? Is the idea of having a female Daddy or Master hot? And would you expect a female Daddy to Dominate you differently to a female Mistress? Leave a comment. I’d love to know.

ADDENDUM TO MY ORIGINAL BLOG (28/12/20) – I found a blog by a leatherdyke that goes into the identity of female Daddies in real depth. It’s an educational and mind-opening read.

  1. Mistress Virago,


    i would not find a particular title any more or less erotic. For me, eroticism comes from serving a more dominate, in every way, master. As You so rightfully noted, history has incorrectly assumed that the patriarchy is dominate, when this couldn’t be further from the truth.

    i believe the male ego has, since as far back as human’s have documented, had no desire to admit to being the weaker sex, and have wrongfully exerted this through sheer physical strength. In reality, women have always been stronger, they hold everything together, they make everything whole. Women have held the power in every conceivable way, particularly in sex, since the beginning of time. No man can have his sexual desires fulfilled (unless he violates a woman’s rights) without her permission.

    Serving a Mistress or a “Daddy” makes no difference to me. i believe that the title she chooses shows her expression of dominance over her male counterpart. It is simply her taking her rightful place in society, and by submitting, i affirm this to be true.



    1. Hello Belle

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this topic. It’s really interesting to understand your feelings on titles and the wider dynamics of dominance. It’s a lovely reflection of your submission that a title doesn’t matter to you.
      And I must compliment you on your use of written protocol in your comment. That’s gratifying to see.

  2. Mistress Virago,
    I do agree that more women are taking the titles Daddy and Master, mostly because a few brave souls — yourself included — are experimenting with roles and titles that have been static and loaded for a long time.
    What really strikes me about your post, though, is how important it is for sissies to feel like their options are reduced (nudged, prodded, and trained into increasingly feminized submission) and for Dominants to feel like their options are increased (growing power, latitude of expression, and status). Women who own sissies can really drive home the power differential by claiming male AND female power roles, expression, and titles and making sissies honor them. In that context, I absolutely adore the titles “Daddy,” and “Master” because power is the right (and responsibility) of the Dominant. That. Is. Hot.
    >If a FemDom demanded you call Her Master or Daddy, would it turn you on…or off…or make no difference?
    If I knew She was using the term to highlight Her ownership of all power roles and to demonstrate Her right to all gender expression while figuratively slapping me in the face with my emasculated and subservient state, then it would be an extreme turn on. Or if She just got seriously off on it. Making me acknowledge with every use of the title that She is more man than I am, could be, or want to be would be very hot.
    >Is the idea of having a female Daddy or Master hot?
    If She is demonstrating Her right and ability to unabashedly take what She wants from those titles and roles while also loading me with the restrictions, limitations, attitudes, and expectations that come with the most submissive femininity, then it’s extremely hot! It also would communicate that my sissified subservience to Her as my Daddy/Master comes first, and any sexual preference or drive in me is Hers to shape as She wishes for purposes that are Hers.
    >And would you expect a female Daddy to Dominate you differently to a female Mistress?
    I do think that a female “Daddy” might be more strap-on focused, sexually objectifying, physically controlling, and more “transaction focused” sexually than a typical Mistress. That’s just another way to say “just more masculine.” That’s VERY hot, but it’s NOT a requirement. Just WANTING to be a Daddy means She is more role-flexible than many female Mistresses, so I would expect Her to be less caught up in Her own feminine social limitations.
    This is a very, very complex area, and my struggle to assemble a coherent reply have really helped me get started thinking about the topic. I’m sure it will be much on my mind over the coming months as I turn it over. Thank You for bringing it up!


    1. Hello Quiet
      Thank you for your articulate reply. I’m always fascinated by how a submissive feels as its different for every individual.
      I agree that it’s the powerplay by the Dominant in how they make the sub honour these roles that can hold a huge amount of eroticism.
      I enjoyed your observation that a female Daddy might be less influenced by social conditioning. That’s astute.
      I’m glad my blog got you thinking.
      Your comment did the same for me.
