Cuckolding has been on the up and up in recent years.
A 2018 study conducted by David Ley, Justin Lehmiller, and Dan Savage found that both gay and straight couples have been getting into the age-old practice more and more lately.
This week taught us that evangelicals, too, have been partaking in the fetish. And that wouldn’t be an issue… except that they’re doing so in private while publicly shaming others for being “sexual deviants.”
Here are four religious leaders who have found themselves at the center of in cuckolding stories and scandals recently…
Jerry Falwell Jr.
The fired president of Liberty University and his wife, Becki, have had quite the week.
It all started when their former 20-something pool boy, Giancarlo Granda, alleged that he maintained a years-long sexual relationship with the Falwells that included him having sex with Becki while Jerry watched in a speedo.
After that, a second 20-something pool boy came forward to allege a “personal relationship” with Becki. Then another guy, also in his early 20s, came forward to claim he, too, had a sexual relationship with Becki.
The Falwells have remained pretty tight-lipped about the whole thing, other than to say that OK, OK, Becki did have at least one affair, but they insist Jerry had nothing to do with it, and they wouldn’t say who the affair was with.
While the Idaho pastor has never been wrapped up in a cuckolding scandal quite like the Falwells, he did pen a truly bizarre essay in 2018 in which he absolutely railed against women who cuck their husbands, which kinda makes you wonder.
In the scathing essay, the 67-year-old homophobe wrote that husbands who cheat on their wives are definitely committing a sin, which is bad, but wives who cheat on their husbands are totally “immoral,” “tramps,” and “pretty much worthless,” which is so much worse.
“The point is not that his sin is praiseworthy and the immoral woman’s is not, but rather that their sins are radically different,” Wilson argued, somewhat incoherently. “Let us not praise either one, but let us not confuse them either.”
He sounds angry. It’s almost like he has personal experience with being cuckolded or something.
The pedophile pastor from Florida, who once protested LGBTQ equality by marching through a drug store dressed in drag, was busted in 2017 for arranging to have two 15-year-olds, a boy and a girl from his church, engage in sexual intercourse in front of him “so he could judge if they were doing it properly.”
Adkins proclaimed he was innocent, but a jury found guilty on eight charges of child molestation after only an hour of deliberation. A judge then sentenced him to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 35 years.
The boy later said he volunteered to have sex with his girlfriend in front of Adkins, and that nothing was ever forced, adding that he believed the pastor was a “good man.” Um, except that he tried getting two teenagers to act out his underage cuckolding fantasy.
Stricjavvar “Strick” Strickland
The 37-year-old pastor from Michigan was just slapped with 11 felony charges this week for sexually assaulting four underage males and paying them to have sex with his wife while he watched.
Strickland allegedly gave two teen boys $100 each to have sex with his wife while he watched. Then he allegedly paid them an additional $100 each to watch her perform oral sex on them on separate occasions.
Another time, he allegedly let a teen boy borrow his car in exchange for giving the youth a blowjob. And another time he allegedly paid a different teen boy $200 to repeatedly have sex with his wife in the couple’s basement.
That’s a lot of cuckolding.
