Dear Dr DADDY, my life is a total trainwreck. I moved to Berlin nine years ago to become more creative and get a creative job. Although I hang out with creatives and do all the right things, it’s not happening! What do you think I should do? Samantha, (34)
Having a flight of fancy is a must, especially in Berlin where it is so easy to spend a decade in finalising a career-launching mixtape or finding the perfect space to unleash the creative and productive inner-beast. But at some point, one needs to get creatively real. As one of my Brazilian friends’ mother once said “gato que nasce no forno não é biscoito” (a cat born in an oven, ain’t a biscuit).
Dear Dr DADDY, I’m really down at the moment. I can’t stop thinking about my boyfriend when I go to sex parties. What should I do? Love, Alex (29)
I share your pain. Thinking about a loved one while getting fucked by a stranger can be inconvenient and distressing. However, why bother going if you’re not going to let your hair down? Having light fun out of a relationship is healthy. As long as your boyfriend knows what you are up to, why shade yourself? If he doesn’t, I’m sure he’ll forgive you.
Dear Dr DADDY, I’m worried I’ve become a G sesh queen. I get so high with just a few drops. Before I would just get a bit touchy and feel mega gooey and lovely. But lately I’ve been so insatiable that I’ve even considered wearing kneepads to parties. I’d never thought I’d become this type person… I really hate that I spend the rest of the week in regret-mode. I just want to be able to go out and get high. Do you think this is possible? Love, Mustafa (29)
Please don’t shade yourself. Being horny in whatever context is a privilege. High and horny go hand in hand, so just enjoy it. However, while we condone a lot of things, we aren’t sure how we feel about G, so how about studying the party menu and going for something that makes you less slutty?
Dear Dr DADDY, I’m in an emotional pickle. All was going well with my man until I found out his parents voted for Alternative für Deutschland. Since then I don’t wanna fuck him. I know you can’t choose your parents, but equally I can’t help being black. It makes me sad, as I really saw a future and wanted to have his babies. Love, Abena (23)
Thankfully the only ‘alternative für der future’ is brown. Get on the love train and shut up the parents with gorgeous mixed-race grandchildren.
