CNN Touts Study Which Shows Benefits of ‘Cuckolding’

The sexual fetish among couples typically involves one partner having sexual intercourse with a third person

CNN took a dive into some sexually suggestive content on Thursday, publishing an article on its website touting the benefits of cuckolding in relationships.

The sexual fetish among couples typically involves one partner engaging in sexual intercourse with a third person while the other partner watches.

“According to a recent study by David Ley, Justin Lehmiller and the writer Dan Savage, acting on cuckolding fantasies can be a largely positive experience for many couples,” CNN reporter Ian Kerner writes. “Part of what makes cuckolding arousing for heterosexual men is that they tend to view it as a taboo act.”

“References to cuckolding appear in literature as early as the 13th century, usually in the form of male characters who fear that their child has been sired by another man during an act of infidelity,” he adds.

The article points out that cuckolding has lent itself to the modern term “cuck” or “cuckservative” — which, in some online circles, is used as a slur against “weak” men.

The term “cuck” also carries significant racial undertones — which went unmentioned by Kerner but were described by this legendary piece for Salon by Joan Walsh.

“It apparently comes from a kind of pornography known as ‘cuck,’ in which a white husband, either in shame or lust, watches his wife be taken by a black man,” she wrote.
