In the 2013 TV show "Masters of Sex", Libby Masters calls her husband William "Daddy". Apparently she uses this as a term of endearment.
To be honest, I am a little creeped out by this. Does she have serious "daddy issues", or was this really a common nickname for wives to call their husbands at the time? (The show takes place in 1957.)
Is this maybe something special the writers use to emphasize her wish to get a child?
