Cuckold husband

Traditionally, cuckold husbands were the object of scorn and derision; when it was discovered that a man's wife had found fulfillment in another man's bed, she was an adulteress and he was her cuckold. It was often said that he "left with his tail between another man's legs."

The dictionary defines a cuckold husband as "a man with an unfaithful wife."

In the context of alternative lifestyles, the cuckold husband occupies a position somewhere between the traditional definition and that of "swingers." The difference with the first definition is that today's cuckold husbands are both aware of wife's "infidelity" and are sexually excited by it; the difference with the second definition is that "swingers" are mutually involved, or at least approach the sex bed as equals, which is not the case with a cuckold husband.

In plain English, cuckold husbands are men who stand by and accept wife's infidelity, being sexually excited by her actions. They may have normal sexual relations with their wife part of the time, or they may accept that the wife has chosen another man to replace them completely in her sexual bed.
