Do you think it's wrong for a wife to call her husband ''Daddy''?

I call my hubby's a loving expression of mine...almost like a term of endearment!

'Wrong'? heck no! I know you southern gals have strange ways---but it's all good if'n it works for y'all.

Maybe it's good for you, but it kind of grosses me out! I also hate when men call their wives "Mom"!

Daddy sounds too...incestuous...

Ick. And BIG daddy? Sounds like a pimp.

Not as long as it doesn't bother him. I couldn't ever call a guy that personally because it just would seem weird unless it was someone that liked it and I was really into and wouldn't think of my acutal dad saying it.

Would that be like a woman screaming "Oye Papi!" when she is having sex with her man?
I like it when that happens. ;)

I've got to be honest dolphace, I would freak myself (and my fiance) out if I called him "daddy." Haha!

My wife calls me the same thing. She started that after our first son. It is freaking if she says that during sex so other than that I am fine with it.

The word "Daddy" makes me think of my dad. Not something I want to think about in an amorous moment. Ick.

LOL! I think it's totally fine. Me and my guy have so many different nicknames that we call each other, and if people ever heard some of them they'd think we were total weirdos, lol. Occasionally, I'll call him Big Daddy and he'll call me Lil Mama,hahaha, so you're not alone. :)

If it has meaning for you and your hubby, then its alright!

I use a lot of loving expressions, my husband and I call each other Honey. I call my daughter sweetie and she calls me mommy or sweetie.

If that's what you want, go for it! I would personally not want to call him that and definitely NOT in bed, lol.

I find it weird to call my s/o "Daddy" because of the relationship with my dad. I do call him "Papi", it means the same but seems sexier.

... I call my fiancee "daddyyyy" all the time, I actually call him by that more than calling him "baby" or his actual name. & He calls me "mommy or mama" too. (I call him by his first & last name when I'm mad at him!) haha

I knew you were going to get all these responses from people that were freaked out by that, but actually a lot of people do, do that. AND it has NOTHING to do with calling him daddy in a way like he is your actual "father". It doesnt freak me out or anything. If anything, I think he gets turned on by it ... alot. We like to kid and have fun... I have soooo many nicknames for him.

I think if you have children and you are wanting your kids to call him daddy then it's okay. Otherwise, I think it's kind of strange. There is only one man I call daddy and that is my dad!! I hope my daughter will be the same way when she marries. But if that floats your boat, then go with it!

????? Whats wrong with that? Couples all the time have cutsie names for each other. If it works for them, that should not be of concern to anyone else.

I don't think its wrong, as long as both of you are okay with it.

I find my husband and I are calling each other "momma" and "daddy" all the time, because we refer to each other as such with the dog... (ie: "Loki, go find Daddy") and it just kinda got to be habit!

I have to say, I've always thought it was rather strange. But whatever floats your boat! I just wouldn't do it myself. Freud would have a field day with this one. ;-)

I don't think its wrong. To our cats, my husband is Daddy and I am Mama. If you have pets or kids, it is totally normal. Like when my husband comes home, I'll look at the cats and say "Daddy's home!" but its not like a main nickname or anything...and i don't really do it out in public.
