Cuckolding consultants are people who offer advice and advice alone.
In a survey, just 14% of respondents said they had met someone who had engaged in sexual intercourse outside marriage, compared with 36% of married people and 38% of people who had never married.
Cuckolds also make up a small minority of sex workers.
“There’s no such thing as a ‘cuckolding’ in the sense that they are all people who engage in sexual activity outside of marriage,” says Dr Mark Rimmer, a clinical psychologist at the University of Nottingham in England.
Cucks don’t necessarily have any specific sexual orientation or gender identity, but their partners may be interested in something that falls outside the binary.
For instance, a cuckold may not be attracted to people who are heterosexual, but may want to explore more adventurous sex with someone who might be attracted exclusively to people of the same sex.
For many people, there is a range of sex-related activities and relationships available, ranging from same-sex to same-gender relationships.
But Cuckoos don’t get the same treatment, says Dr Rimmer.
“I think the idea that the cuckoo is not a heterosexual is something that we’re all struggling with,” he says.
The difference between cuckolds and the cucks is that they aren’t sexually attracted to women, but do enjoy exploring the possibility of having sex with a woman. “
It’s a lot like a lot of people’s attitudes towards women and their bodies, that we don’t accept women’s bodies, and our bodies are a bit of a commodity.”

Cucked couples can also have sexual relationships with men, but don’t always engage in this because it can be challenging to know what to expect.
CUCKOES ARE TRYING TO GET AWAY from the traditional roles that they’re used to In the US, the sexualisation of sex and sexuality has led to a lot more casual sex and a lot less commitment, says Professor Sarah McLean, who has researched the effects of sexualisation on the body, body image and sexuality of older adults.
“In the past it was really difficult for people to be open about their sexual fantasies because they felt it would make them feel ashamed,” she says.
“Because it’s a very public and public experience, it can encourage the kind of self-fulfilling prophecy that happens in relationships where people are being pressured into sex and relationships,” she adds. “
You might have a very frank sexual encounter and it might be very intense and you might say things like ‘I’m going to cum on you and you’re going to do this and that’.” Professor McLean says this can be dangerous.
“Because it’s a very public and public experience, it can encourage the kind of self-fulfilling prophecy that happens in relationships where people are being pressured into sex and relationships,” she adds.
“Sex without commitment can be a very powerful thing.”
Cuckoo couples might also struggle with a lot in terms of relationships.
“If you’re having a very good relationship, then it’s likely that you’re not having sex as much,” says Professor Mclean.
“For people who have a relationship, having more sex is good, but if you don’t have much sex it’s not necessarily a good thing.”
If a relationship doesn’t work, there may be other factors at play.
For example, if a partner is struggling to have a healthy relationship and is having trouble in relationships with other people, or is having difficulty in their work, it could be an issue that the person is working on.
The sex that they enjoy is also a factor, so there may also be feelings of shame associated with a sexual relationship that they don’t want or need to have.
“What makes a cucked relationship unique is that it’s about a relationship rather than a sex life,” says McLean.
Cuddled couples may also struggle to find work because they may not have the same level of experience as those who have been married for a long time.
“They might not have had a good relationship before, or they may be looking for a more stable, predictable relationship,” she explains.
“That’s the way it’s usually structured, so you have that level of comfort and support, and then you have this other aspect of, ‘How do I get the career I want?’.” When it comes to finding work, the relationship can also be a barrier.
“Cuckoos often work in the fields of retail and hospitality and they may need a lot out of their day-to-day life to make ends meet,” says Rimmer from the University.
“So if they can’t find work, they may find it very difficult to find an income, or may have difficulties with their relationship with their partner.”
What you can do If you or someone you know needs help with their sexual orientation, Dr R
