For me it is a return to a state of being unconditionally loved and protected, in the presence of an all-powerful, all-knowing person, who takes care of me. It is a very erotic feeling, because when you are in someone's charge you are pretty free to do as you please, you have no real adult responsibilities, all you have to do is be dependent on that one person and you have no worries in the world.
It is a fantasy of course, nothing can be further from the truth and when we grow up we know we have to face our responsibilities, as best we can. Notwithstanding the small excursions we take to that fantasy land - with the person who is willing to play the part.
Now, if someone actually assumes this responsibility, and becomes a real Father for us, setting down the Law (superego, internal demands and so on), my feeling is that he would not encourage the fantasy of letting go of the responsibilities, but would reinforce the emotional stability that the sub requires in a Daddy/daughter scheme, without allowing for any slack in growing up. We would then witness the phenomenon of a sub who is enjoying a Daddy/daughter relationship, which allows her to acquire more self-sufficiency and more responsibility than ever before.
