have some concerns about my cuckold fetish that you did not
address in a recent column on the subject. Aspects of my particular
fantasy are prevalent among people with this type of fetish,
and they cause me guilt and shame.
I am white and all of my cuckold fantasies involve my future
wife having sex with well-endowed black men. While this turns
me on a great deal, part of me feels guilty. My fantasy is
horribly objectifying and racist, is it not? It requires treating
another human being like a piece of meat. But the rational
part of me, the part that tells me these fantasies are improper,
is no match for my inner urges. I can’t seem to stop fantasizing
about this. In all other aspects of my life I consider myself
to be quite progressive.
What can I do about my fantasy? My hope is that these urges
will go away over time, but I doubt this will be the case.
Understand Cuckold Kink
bet your cracker ass your fantasy is racist, CUCK.
For centuries, white men—not all white men, mind you, but
enough that white men should be embarrassed for all time—have
obsessed about the supposed sexual superiority of black men.
Whitey fear big black dick, rampaging Mandingos, white women
coming down with jungle fever and getting their chifforobes
busted up, etc. These fears inspire feelings of inadequacy,
insecurity, and paranoia—and white men have typically compensated
for these fears through acts of violence. Not for nothing
was castration the first order of business at many a lynching.
But guess what? When given a choice between being lynched
and being offered a white man’s woman, CUCK, 10 out of 10
black men surveyed prefer the latter. That the same racist
stereotypes that still inspire some white men to violence,
pathetically enough, also inspire racially tinged cuckold
fantasies in others has to be regarded as progress. Well,
maybe not progress, per se, but until we stamp out
racism once and for all (let’s all hold our breath, shall
we?), better cuckold fantasies, acted on or not, than brutal,
Can I get an “amen”?
But doesn’t enacting your fantasy require the complete objectification
of a black man? Yes. And how can you reconcile that kind of
racist objectification with your “progressive” values? By
sucking on this: It’s really super-racist of you, CUCK, to
assume that black men are incapable of having the same subconscious
erotic response to racist stereotypes that you did. There
are tons of African-American guys out there who want to play
the sexually dominant black stud to your sexually humiliated
white cuckold—it took me less than a minute online to find
three dozen men happy to help you out. How selfish of you,
CUCK, not to mention how racist of you, to obsess about your
own issues—the white cuckold’s burden—without giving so much
as a thought to the needs of these black men. For shame.
And for the record, CUCK, there’s nothing wrong with treating
someone like a piece of meat—provided you treat him like a
human being before and after sex. Some people actually enjoy
being treated like pieces of meat, and as long as the men
you play with consent to being treated like meat, there’s
nothing improper about it. Consent is, as I’ve written before,
always and everywhere the magic ingredient. It makes BDSM
not actual violence, it makes a facial not actual degradation,
it makes a realized rape fantasy not actual rape. In your
case, CUCK, the joyful consent of all involved—including your
future wife (good luck with that)—makes the expression of
your racist fantasy not an actual expression of racial animus.
To sum up, CUCK: As long as you understand the cultural forces
that shaped your fantasy, as long as you don’t assume that
all black men wanna bust up your wife’s chifforobe, and as
long as you treat any black man who does want a crack at her
chifforobe like a human being—and, what the hell, as long
as you vote Democratic and donate $100 to the United Negro
College Fund for every inch of black cock that gets slipped
into your future wife—there’s nothing unethical about realizing
your particular fantasy.
(You want an example of a highly unethical and distressingly
common cuckold fantasy? Check this out: “Dom male seeking
a true cuckold couple,” reads this personal ad. “He will watch
me use her and please her. He will do clean-up duties after.
I am also interested if she is fertile and wants to be bred
in front of hubby. If bred, I will continue to use her throughout
pregnancy. The cuck assumes all responsibility toward the
child.” Where do I start? A child simply cannot possibly consent—in
advance of conception!—to taking part in a lifelong role-play
scenario. Cucks, bucks, bulls, and hot wives? I’ve got your
backs—all your sweaty backs. Cuckold fantasies are fine, realizing
them is finer. But leave conception and kids out of it. Christ!)
In your column on so-called “cuckolding,” I wish you had mentioned
that many men (and women) share their partners for reasons
other than a fetish or an eroticized fear. My partner’s sex
adventures don’t turn me on, but I encourage her for four
1. It makes her happy.
2. It takes the pressure off me to satisfy her.
3. It liberates me to have other lovers, too, whether or not
I act on that freedom.
4. She brings me the sexual energy she picks up on the outside,
which has revitalized our sex life.
The thing is, the term “cuckold” is insulting, and it supports
a terrible, life-destroying lie of our straight-male-dominated
culture—that a man having sex with a woman in some way owns
her. So when another man has sex with her, he’s robbing the
first man of something. Sex should be about love and pleasure,
Possession Out Of Love
some folks, KPOOL, sex is about love and pleasure and possession—and
there’s nothing necessarily unhealthy about the desire to
possess someone. We should all understand, of course, that
we can never truly possess another person, but we shouldn’t
feel guilty when our hearts or genitals (women can feel possessive,
too) feel a bit differently. Human beings should be rational
(“I know I don’t own you”) about the irrational feelings love
inspires (“I own your ass!”). It’s not a crime when some folks
eroticize those possessive feelings, like cuckolds (yes, the
term is insulting—that’s part of the turn-on), or toy with
them, like anyone who’s ever gotten a thrill watching his
or her partner flirt with someone else.
However, my boyfriend has a “Property of Dan Savage” tattoo
in a secret undisclosed location, so perhaps I’m just being
I read your response to the woman whose husband has
a cuckold fetish. But what if it’s the other way around? I
know that my husband is highly monogamous, so I have never
mentioned it directly, but I would love the chance to screw
other guys. How do I explain that I only want one love in
my life (him), but I would also like more cocks in my life?
assume that your husband is highly monogamous, WCH, because
he’s never told you otherwise. What if he’s assuming the same
about you because you’ve never told him otherwise?
