Without simply copying and pasting another persons answer here, cuckolding is when a married women has sex with one or more men with the husband's knowledge. The husband may not only be aware, but may encourage this and even find it stimulating. In other words, she is screwing other guys and he knows and likely even likes it. He may get off on the "badness" of it, the humilation of it, watching it or simply hearing about it. Some men are aroused at the idea their their mate prefers the other guy especially if he is better endowed. He may want to be made to feel like a women while she gets a "real man".

Strictly speaking, a cuckold is a man whose wife has illicit sexual affairs. In contemporary usage it is sometimes applied to non-married couples and is sometimes used (incorrectly) for women in the analogous situation (who are correctly termed "cuckqueans.") It is also used today to apply to men and women who experience a masochistic sexual excitement at the idea of their committed partner having sex with someone else.

This later BDSM fetish usage is the most common today. The fetish is generally referred to as "cuckolding." Linguistically this term is incorrect since cuckolds are by definition deceived and unwilling (willing or accepting cuckolds are technically "wittols,) but the pose of reluctance is integral to the fetish thrill.

The term was widely used in medieval European society and literature where fidelity within marriage was strongly propounded by religious leaders and the center of morality tales. In the very patriarchic society of the day, a man who could not dominate his wife at least to the point of sexual exclusivity was seen to have failed on a fundamental level. "Cuckold" enjoyed wide use in Elizabethan and Restoration drama, when the figure and fears of the cuckold was used for both tragic and humorous purposes. The word appears less frequently today outside the fetish usage, although it is still seen in newspapers and legal proceedings as well as artistic criticism and novels.

Plural of 'cuckold." A cuckold is, strictly speaking, a man whose wife has sexually relations with other men without his knowledge and/or to his chagrin. In the fetish sense, it can mean a person (male or female) who gets sexual satisfaction from watching their intimate relationship partner have sex with other people.

Is cuckolding popular?

Data on sexual practices is notoriously unreliable. But according to most U.S. research a solid majority of Americans have had extramarital or extra-relationship sex. Other research suggests that it is a common fantasy for both sexes. So in that sense, you would have to say yes. More complicated is the issue of cuckolding as a fetish. It is a not uncommon fantasy, according to surveys, and according to recent big data analysis of web searches, much more prevalent then previously assumed (or admitted to by survey takers). But the number of people actualizing it as fetish play experience is probably quite small as a fraction of the population.

Are some men more likely to be cuckold than others?

If you are talking about cuckolding as a fetish, then yes. Fetish Cuckolding is a type of BDSM fetish, so men who get off on submission, status reduction, humiliation, and emasculation are among those most likely to have a cuckolding fetish. Such fetishes are the eroticization of fear and is usually a reaction to an upbringing or traumatic event that rendered the specific fear so terrifying that the mind had to find a way to protect itself from it.Cuckolding is the fetish that eroticizes fear of rejection by females and inability to live up to expectations of cultural expectations of masculinity as concern mating. (More rarely it can go the other way.) So men who have very deep fear of women - those often called "shy" and who can't bring themselves to ask women out or make a pass - are more likely to develop this fetish then men whose fear is manageable enough that they swallow hard and get these things done. This is often the result of an a feared, cool mother and/or an absence of sisters or other sympathetic females in the man's formative childhood years.Of course nothing is guaranteed with individuals, but you the question you asked was a relative one - "more likely."

What makes men cuckolds?

Their wives. Seriously, it depends on what you mean by cuckold. If you mean the simple definition of a man with an unfaithful partner, it could be many things. If you mean "what makes a man a cuckold fetishist," then fetich is an eroticization of deep-eseated fears and in the case of cuckolding the fear being eroticized is that of being rejected or snubbed in the evolutionary and social competition for a partner. Such a fear can be the result of trauma or of an accumulation of small things, but either way usually traces back to experiences in the formative childhood years. Basically, the fear touches such a strong nerve that the brain has paired it with sexual excitement in order to protect itself from being paralyzed. When the fear is engaged, the brain released feel-good sex hormones to keep from crashing like a computer. The man in question learns that he can trigger those sexual feelings by accessing the fear and so begins a cycle of association. In some cases the cuckold fears may be a bit different. For instance, their are some humiliation fetishists who gravitate towards cuckolding because of its extreme humiliation value.
