Cuckolding is rapidly emerging as the alt-sex fetish of choice for American intellectuals. --- Cuckolding attracts ‘the very highly educated’.
Jealousy, Block theorizes, is a social construct based on the notion that husbands own their wives, and is thus ‘much more recent, evolutionarily speaking, than the competition that turns guys on. That’s why it’s mostly intellectuals who are into cuckolding: because other guys are crippled by jealousy. They’re aroused and upset and don’t know why’.
