A new book, “America Unzipped: In Search of Sex and Satisfaction,” claims that many couples are spicin’ things up in the bedroom with a little “Mommy” and “Daddy” name-calling.
Somewhere, Freud is nodding knowingly in his grave.
It often starts accidentally, when one parent slips and calls the other “Mommy” or “Daddy” — even when the kids aren’t around. Which seems to happen with most parents I know. And, yes, has happened will likely happen with Mr. Candy and me, too.
Marie Melsheimer of Bend, Ore., says her husband always calls her “Mama,” even when referring to her in conversations with others.
“I find it rather endearing,” she said. “In the bedroom, it does come up sometimes, as in, ‘Aren’t you going to take care of The Daddy?’ ”
Makes her sound like a service station. If the tune-up doesn’t go both ways, tell him to use self-serve!
Of course, you don’t actually have to be a parent to find the names sexy.
Jason Goldstein, a 24-year-old New Yorker, adopted the “Daddy” moniker in college. He even asked his friends to call him by the nickname. When his current girlfriend realized it, “she was freaked out,” he recalled.
“She still hates it,” he said, but if she is in a very good mood, he gets “Daddy” during sex.
A lovely fact he shared with MSNBC. My guess is “Daddy” won’t be getting much of ANYTHING from her anymore.
