One approach could be to form a name as a pun: if the sub’s name is Doug, then his pet name is “dog” or if his name is Warren,” he becomes “worm.”
If Mistress knows a nickname that Her sub simply hates, then that’s the name to use — of course!
Addressing him by that name becomes a cue to drop instantly into sub-space, or at least to “assume the position” and be ready to perform as Her slave. The real advantage of this is that it gives Mistress — and only Her — the option to initiate slave-play. If he wants to but She does not, too bad. There is no way for him to initiate, and that’s part of his humiliation, his training, his submission.
In fact, She may decide that if he makes himself obnoxious about hinting when She’s not in the mood, he will simply undergo a severe punishment the next She does decide to play. And Goddess help the guy if his response to Her cue is to say he’s not in the mood or has a headache: you don’t want to know what that little moment of disobedience will cost him!
In response to Nickname? Pet Name?.
