    Love the conversation! Thanks for covering the subject of cuck! And to add to it, my gf and I are in a Dom/sub relationship and have what we have come to call a Stag/vixen fetish. It’s essentially cuck with the power roles reversed. I’m dominant and enjoy watching her have sex with others, and the humiliation aspects are directed toward her as the submissive rather than me. I know a few other folks out there because we got the term from tublr before they sold out to the bible thumpers. Just thought I’d add diversity to confusion! Thanks!
