Abby and Rufus’s relationship in LITTLE DANCER is a special sort of dom/sub dynamic that you may not have come across before, called Daddy Dom/Little Girl, or DD/lg. The dom assumes the role of a caregiver and protector, and the sub is his little. It’s a relationship that’s equal parts sweet and strict and is oh-so-sexy. Daddy is a term of respect like Master or Sir, and his sub is sweet, little and obedient—or, in some cases, not so obedient!
Sometimes there might be an age gap in the relationship, just like in any relationship between adults, but it’s usually more about age play—a little who imagines she’s little again and clings to her “daddy” for love and care.
Here are the five best things about these sorts of relationships—and there are so many good things that it’s hard to choose just five!
1. Stuffies & Toys
Do you miss your dolls and coloring books and stuffed animals? How nice would it be just to retreat from the adult world for an afternoon, draw pictures and watch cartoons! That’s exactly what littles do. Their little space is where they get to put aside their worries and stresses and act like kids again. Blanket fort optional.
Hang on. Rules are fun? I promise they are, and you’ll see why! Littles crave structure in their lives, especially around things they struggle with, like perhaps not getting enough sleep because they stay up too late, not eating regularly or not sassing their dom. The rules make a little feel loved and cared for, and a daddy like he’s needed and respected.
And when littles don’t follow the rules, that brings us to…
3. Bedroom Kinkiness
Oh, no, you’ve broken a rule! Littles who displease end up over knees. The discipline aspect of the relationship is a big, sexy part of it—so sexy that some littles might even break a rule on purpose just for attention and spankies. *evil grin*
After all the rule breaking, disciplining and kinky bedroom antics, what comes next is cuddles. Like any relationship, the after-sex cuddling is important, but even more so in a dom/sub relationship. It’s a time for bonding and reassurance, and a little is going to be extra clingy and in need of daddy’s lap after being disciplined!
Laughter and fun should be part of every relationship, and a DD/lg relationship is especially filled with giggles, teasing, tickling and playing. Sharing what you delight in with your partner is a key to happiness! Abby and Rufus’s relationship in LITTLE DANCER is filled will all these things, but especially play and giggles.
