Cuckolding: it seems everyone’s doing it but no one’s talking about it! On episode 85 Dr. Justin Lehmiller shares the science and research about this taboo fetish. You’ll learn how cuckolding has roots in evolutionary biology; the surprising correlation between the conservative lifestyle and cuckolding; gay cuckolding vs hetero scenarios; complimentary fetishes like forced bi, chastity, feminization & cross-dressing; how to tell your partner about your cuckold fantasies and incorporate them into your sex life; and the alt-right adaptation of “cuck” & how it’s affected shame and confusion about this fetish. We also answer a listener question about cross-dressing and mismatched libido plus Justin tells us about his latest research on dick pics– specifically who sends them and what motivates these folks to keep sending them. Over on Patreon Justin tells us a story about an unexpected encounter he had at a vanilla professional event.
