Daddies are making a Comeback

I have always liked older guys.

Since I was in Middle School, I had a thing for my P.E. teacher/coach... Actually, I had a thing for many coaches in my teen years.

Anywho, the point of this post is about the rise of the Daddies.

Older guys do have it and finally, the community is catching on it.

From the NY Mag
An informal poll of men reveals that there seems to be an uptick of younger men who are interested in guys of my “seasoned” age bracket. “Guys my age could care less about me. At all,” says one friend in his forties. “Which is fine. We all seem to be occupied with the interests of much younger guys lately.” 
To meet the demand, a daddy industry is developing. There are now tons of non-leather daddy porn sites, a hookup app, Daddyhunt, for “Gay Daddies, Silver Daddies, Muscle Daddies, Bears, Leather Daddies, Big Daddies, and Daddy-Lovers." There is an increasing number of gay porn actors and escorts, who, despite the decimation of the gay adult film industry thanks to Internet, have extended their careers into middle age with equal, if not greater, popularity (Chase Hunter, Allen Silver, and Cole Maverick, to name a few); according to one male escort friend, getting good “reviews” from satisfied customers on the website Daddy’s Reviews has become crucial for business. 
In turn, daddy has gone from being a porn thing to defining a broader range of men. “If you’re hearing daddy more and more, I think that it’s because more gay men are allowing themselves to be attracted to different types of people,” says Conner Habib, a writer, lecturer, and adult-film star. “Rather than a uniform experience of beauty, people want a personalized experience of it. What could be more personalized than a daddy? It expresses character, relationship, experience.”
The Daddies are running it.

Nice post. I think "daddy" is as much a mindset as "bear" and can transcends age.

I think the real reason 'daddies' are becoming popular is because there are some. The majority of those over born before in the 60's or later(the boomer generation) were wipe out by AIDS. Those that did survive did so mostly by not being out. Now that the post baby boomer generation it aging up - you're seeing men who are healthy, have worked out, eaten well and moisturized most of their lives.
