Cuckolding involves a man or woman watching their partners having sex with another person. According to scientists, it can actually be good for couples. Researchers said, cuckolding couples who act on their desires feel liberated because they can be honest about their sexual fantasies which can lead them to have better communication skills than couples in relationships.
According to a controversial article in CNN, cuckoldry is increasingly becoming a popular and sought-out fetish. As per psychologist Dr David Ley, who has recently published a paper on cuckolding with Dr Justin Lehmiller an assistant professor in psychology counselling at Ball State University, they claim lots of people find pleasure and empowerment by fulfilling their cuckolding fantasies. For his book, 'Tell Me What You Want: The Science of Sexual Desire and How It Can Help Improve Your Sex Life,' Lehmiller questioned thousands of Americans and found that 58 per cent of men and about a third of women had cuckolding fetishes. However, the study remains controversial with many critiquing the authors for claiming the sexual practices of the gay community have implications for heterosexual couples.
