    • The Psychology of Gay Men’s Cuckolding Fantasies https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10508-017-1096-0

    • Justin J. Lehmiller, David Ley, Dan Savage

      • “Cuckolding (also known as troilism) is a sexual interest in which one obtains sexual arousal from the experience of a romantic partner engaging in sexual activity with someone else”

      • “A sizeable majority of participants (76.7%) had shared their cuckolding fantasies with a partner before. Of them, most (80.8%) reported that their partner agreed to the idea.”

      • “Of those who had acted on their cuckolding fantasies, most said that the experience was better than expected (65.5%) or about what they expected (29.5%); very few (4.9%) reported that it was worse than anticipated.”

      • “most (73.9%) said that acting on this fantasy improved their relationship; by contrast, 17.8% said it had no effect on their relationship one way or another, and 8.3% reported that it harmed their relationship.”

      • “the quality of one’s experiences depended on one’s personality: conscientious persons tended to report better outcomes, whereas anxious and avoidant persons tended to report worse outcomes”

      • “It is likely that feelings of security, a close and intimate relationship, and a willingness to plan and prepare before acting are crucial for achieving mutual pleasure and satisfaction when acting on any consensual non-monogamy or multi-partner sex fantasy, whether it involves cuckolding or not.”

Question(s)

  • Do you have much experience, whether yourselves or regarding people you know, with quad/foursome relationships, especially those between two couples? One couple dating another? Reading over the internet one can find a multiplicity of information about triad relationships, but much less about quads, particularly of the same-sex variety. It seems that often when polyamory is mentioned people immediately assume a triad is being referenced; when the proposal of ‘adding’ to a relationship is raised, it is generally in relation to adding a single person, rather than adding another couple. No doubt there are differences between the dynamics of a relationship involving four people, or of two couples combining, from those of a triad, but this topic does not seem to be raised as often, so I wonder if you could do a blog about quads – whether polyamorous, polyamorish, etc
