Cuckold Fantasies: Not Your Typical Threesome

A surprising number of heterosexual married men have so-called "cuckold fantasies," meaning that they find the prospect of watching their wives have sex with other guys to be sexually arousing (the word "cuckold" literally means a man whose wife is cheating on him, hence the name). In psychological terms, these fantasies are sometimes referred to as troilism, a term some think is derived from the word “trois,” as in “ménage a trois.” In a way, this makes sense--we are talking about a threesome of sorts, just not the kind most people associate with straight men. So just how common are cuckold fantasies and why do so many guys have them? These are the questions I sought to answer in a recent article I wrote for Playboy. Check out the full article at the link below. I guarantee that you'll be surprised at what the research has to say on this topic.
