Do you call your spouse master or?

I notice a lot of references to "master" for SO. I don't call my husband master, it would actually go to his head, lol. I just wouldn't feel comfy calling him that anyways.

No, but we don't have that type of relationship either, we only add in some dom and sub situations during play but not as a habit

I call him "Sir" or sometimes "Daddy" but I don't really call him Master ever.

No, but we're not much into D/s situations. Every couple (or moresome) likes something different.

No. I don't like the idea of calling him master. But maybe daddy. However he doesn't like it. So it's just hubby.

I call him Daddy, when possible, because that's what he likes. Realistically, I don't get to call him Daddy much out of the bedroom. I think the more accurate label for his role in our relationship would be Owner, but he likes being called Daddy and it's not my place to say otherwise.

I like some D/s situations, and I to tend to be the sub, but I've always resented the idea of calling someone "master" or "sir" or anything like that. I don't like the feeling of ownership to extend that far. I don't want to be anyone's slave, and that's what that would feel like to me. I also wouldn't be comfortable with being referred to as "mistress" or "madam" or anything. I want to be on par with my lover, even if we are playing with submission. To me, it's just play, but to call my boyfriend "master" would make it feel like more than play, if that makes sense.

I call my boyfriend by general affectionate nicknames, like "love," "sweetheart," "baby," so on. It's no different in the bedroom.

I don't call him master, he calls me Mistress (even if I'm male, I prefer the sound of mistress, because master makes me think of Peter Pettigrew and that's very unsexy)

Same here. It's not a lifestyle for us, just something to try.

It would make me laugh too much to ever call my husband "master". LOL.

I only call him master sarcastically.
I do however enjoy sir or Mr.(our last name)

I call Him Master, but in private. Since I live as His slave, it only makes sense.

i've never called him master even tho we are in BDSM lifestyle , and i think if i did call him that outside of playtime it would upset him as he wants me to have my own mind and freewill , we dont feel the need to carry it into regular life...

Nope, I call him "dear." But then, we don't have any sort of lifestyle where either of us would need/use that title.

I only reference mine as "daddy" or "dad" when it's about our kids.

We not in a power-exchange relationship. She's just my Sweetie - she usually calls me Babe.

We don't have a D/s relationship at all. We're equals. I could never call him master or any other dominant name. We're not married yet, but soon. I also refuse to call him a few other names, like hubby, because it just doesn't fit with him.

He's my darling, and that's it. If I'm referring to him to someone else, I call him my significant other, or, when we do get married, my husband or my other half.

I noticed this to, I figured it was a S&M thing. If one or both parties enjoy the hierarchy thing, I get it, but neither of us do, so no.

LOL! I think your husband and mine are similar. He doesn't like it when I call him "Daddy." (Even though he's the Daddy of our kids.) I don't call him Master, or Sir unless I'm messing with him. Most of the time, he'll mess right back and say, "That's what I want to hear!" But, in all honestly, I just call him by his name or some silly nick name.

I think it's pretty much a Power and Dominance thing. But, not all couples who work within the power dynamic in their relationship use these terms. It depends on the couple or the relationship.

I'm too much of a Brat to ever call him this without goofing around, and I don't think he'd really like it. But, I know of relationships who work their Power Dynamic this way and it works out well for them.

I know someone whose husband expects her to call him "Sir?" when he calls to her. He told me that I "NEED" to be doing the same for my husband or ANY man who calls for my attention including him. Sorry, not my thing and I let him know this real quick.

It would creep me out in bedroom talk. That's why I'll only reference him as Dad or Daddy when it comes to the kids.
