Recently, many of us in the United States have a heightened awareness of bullying...especially in terms of young people who, in some cases, have committed suicide in reaction. It's fair to say that a national dialog is ongoing in this country regarding the phenomenon of bullying on a level never seen before. In contrast to this new-found sensitivity, some members of this site can be seen seeking-out humiliation, submissiveness, or domination...traits that are often components of bullying. Consider some scenarios: 1) A young guy grew up in an athletic and male-dominated environment in which size and strength were valued instead of his artistic and expressive characteristics. Even though his dick is normal in size, he seeks out humiliating comments from bigger males about his size. The more belittling, insulting, or abusive the comments, the more aroused he becomes. 2) A young women grew up in a school with few friends, and in the context of being verbally and physically abused by classmates. After receiving a dog collar as a gift from a guy she meets, she wears it as an outward sign that she is desired. In fact, she enjoys the feeling of being owned by a man so much that when other males speak with her, he angrily states that she has a boyfriend and she has no interest in speaking to others. 3) A married couple invites a dominant male into their bed. The husband assumes the role of a cuck; the invited male takes the part of a bull. The bull fucks the wife in front of the cuck, and forces him to listen to her humiliating comments. The bull verbally abuses the husband's manhood and worth, and engages in other humiliating acts such as ejaculating on the cuck's pillow and forcing him on to the floor. To many in mainstream society, the actions solicited by these individuals could constitute bullying, humiliation, or even torture. For example, many young men seek out assurances related to adequacy of their dick size, and would find insults and derogatory comments painful. Many young women who assert the equality of both genders, would be angered if any man gave them a dog collar and insinuated they not speak to other males. Finally, many couples work hard to develop a nurturing bond that involves respect and love...ideals that are not plainly demonstrated in cuckoldry. At what point are sexual fetishes harmful to people? Are these individuals being drawn deeper into a psycho-sexual disorder, or are they simply expressing interests specific to their own development and personal history? Does it matter the intent of the aggressor? Does it matter what those around them experience (a guy with a normal size dick hearing from a side conversation that his 5 1/2" dick is "tiny")? Is indulgence of these fetishes simply healthy role playing and fantasy, or is the humiliation just an invited form of bullying that is harmful to the victim's emotional health in the long run?
