They should respect their daughters as autonomous human beings -- rather than as a possession, a piece of fine china to either be protected behind glass or sold to the highest bidder.My dad never told me to go out and have "awesome sex" -- but he clearly communicated that sex could be awesome.Locatelli takes the opportunity to brand his with the logo of his Michelin-starred restaurant, Locanda Locatelli.His inspiration is stamped ‘Property of Celer, Slave of Q.The gift my dad helped give me was a lack of shame and sense of entitlement to sex -- good sex and, sure, “fucking awesome” sex -- and that's something every daughter deserves.
I thought I’d round up some of the best suggestions I’ve seen over the years…They should not be afraid of, or condemn, their daughters' sexuality; they shouldn't treat their daughters' dates and partners as enemies and certainly not as rivals, which is too often the case.This doesn't mean sexualizing their daughters (think: treating them like daddy's pretty, pretty princess whose value lies in her beauty) or desexualizing them (daughters pledging their virginity to their fathers, dads threatening dates with a shotgun).I’m thinking of father-daughter purity balls as well as, um, Courtney Stodden’s pop.Now, whether Steinmetz’s letter falls under that category is a matter of opinion: As Meta Filter commenter Pho BWan Kenobi, writes, "Giving permission to have good sex ('darling, go out and play') implies that it's his to give even if, on the surface, he's saying that it's not his to give. even if it's not immediately apparent that it is."Setting aside that legitimate criticism, and the nuances of Steinmetz’s post, which is undoubtedly imperfect, there is an important underlying message here that deserves a signal boost: Fathers should talk to their daughters about sex.
