"Special" Nicknames For Your SO's?

Would y'all feel comfortable sharing those with me/us?

Want me to start? Okay, I will......

I call Dondra my "Little". I know that's an adjective and I nouned it up, but that's what I like to call her.

The rest of her names are the normal, "Honey", "Baby", "Sweetie".....

D has always led a "sheltered life' (we're total opposites in character), so other than "Baby", that's all I get. Not even "Studmuffin".

How about you guys and ladies?

Butt-munch, brat, slut, butthead.

This is the first relationship my girl friend has been in that wasn't very abusive. She enjoys the fact that we can call each other names without getting hurt or angry.

Those can be good nicks, if spoken lovingly enough.

I can't imagine either of you yelling "Ohhhhh Butt-munch when you're doing the "horizontal bop", however.

If I may be so bold as to state that!

Heh, nope. She doesn't call out any names during sex, and I'm silent as a ninja, so I don't call out anything either.

We do use the normal nicknames too.

Chickadee (#1 with a bullet - I use this more than all the others and her real name combined); Little Fish; Honeywife; Pixie Feet/Toes/Hair; Twitchy/Nekkid/Meanie Butt; Lump (only when she's in the bed); Lovey Bear -- I'll just say "Etc." from here, rather than drag this on. We're real big on the pet names at my house.

We don't really do the pet name thing. Sometimes we call each other by our IRC nicks though.

Butthead from me. Said in a loving voice just before I hang up on him. Its our joke, say that i'm going to hang up when he tells me that he has just eaten fresh from the sea seafood.

Sweatheart from him. One typo can last for years

She calls me Annie, Spock, Stella, Little Aussie, Melissa, Liss and cupcake. I'm not much for nicknames, I just use the usual endearments - honey, sweetie, darling, love (and dear if I'm teasing her) and a shortened version of her name.

And now you're verbing nouns, you grammatical vandal.

Mrs. Simmons is sometimes referred to by me as "Bubbles". I don't think I'm allowed to share the story behind that with the general public.

We typically don't do pet names for each other, but if he's getting all up in my mix, I'll call him "hoss" and he knows he'd better step off!

I call him bad toad. There's a story, but it's boring to anyone else.

In French, people sometimes use "mon chou" (my cabbage) as a term of endearment. I'm not much into terms of endearment, but I do sometimes call my guy "mon chou-fleur" (my cauliflower), but it's in affectionate jest.

I call my husband Potato and Handsinpants. Potato is from Sweet Potato, Handsinpants is me just saying what I see.

He doesn't really have any for me besides baby, sweetie, etc. Although he's been calling me Moneyslut lately. I'm finding it amusing how many nicknames sound pretty mean out of context.

These are really great, thanks!

In addition, I sometimes say stuff:

"Are you the sweetest baby I've ever seen in the whole wide world?"

Answer: "Yep"

Me: "Who said?"

Answer: "You did!"


And that's when the fun begins......

And sometimes it doesn't.

Sometimes it's just me encircling her waist from behind and telling/asking her all those things.

And sometimes that's enough.

I don't like generic pet names. It makes me think a person has so many lovers that they use pet names to keep from calling one of them by the wrong name.
