Cuckold has many forms, and a caller was telling me how he’s going to be away on leave for nine months and his new bride will be all alone, and they were discussing if he should allow her to have some kind of fuck buddy while he was away for the better part of a year serving his country in a godless, far away land. Of course he would have no one during this time period away, but he felt she deserved some physical affection while he was away.
Military people have a history of this sort of thing, ones in the Air Force were into swinging and getting together with other couples, and they knew due to the inherent danger of their branch, they didn’t want their wives back home to be lonely. Cuckold is of course popular with lots of people, not just military people, but the long times away from each other do make it a lot easier to stray. When one partner can be away for one to two years away on duty, it is certainly not out of the realm of possibility one or both partners will find comfort in the arms of another.
It would almost make more sense when such long times apart are common to have some sort of arrangement, you do what you want, I will do what I want, let’s just be careful and discrete and keep it to ourselves kind of thing. That is unless trading tales of who you were with and how hot it was arouses you, some like that, others would find the jealousy hard to deal with. The don’t ask, don’t tell policy seems a lot more forgiving to both parties.
