Mainwaring: CNN caught lying again after egregiously distorting study on sexual threesomes

Opinion

CNN, “The most trusted name in news,” misinterpreted a recent study on threesomes among homosexuals to suggest that the practice, also known as “cuckolding,” was normal among male-female couples.

In an article titled Cuckolding can be positive for some couples, study says, CNN author Ian Kerner states that “a recent study by David Ley, Justin Lehmiller and the writer Dan Savage” shows that “acting on cuckolding fantasies can be a largely positive experience for many couples, and hardly a sign of weakness.” Kerner is listed at the end of the article as a “licensed psychotherapist and sexuality counselor in New York City.”

“Indeed, the numbers suggest that cuckolding, or at least thinking about it, is more common than you might imagine,” stated the CNN article.

Cuckolding is the practice of viewing one’s partner engaging in sexual activity with a third partner for the purpose of becoming sexually aroused. It is essentially adultery under a different name.

What goes unmentioned until much later in the article, however, is that the study which forms the basis of the CNN report was based on an online survey of 580 gay men who engage in cuckolding behaviors or fantasies.

CNN failed to mention the source material for the study as if it were inconsequential to its reporting while, apparently accepting its questionable methodology.

In so doing, CNN led its reading audience to think that “cuckolding” is a common practice among married male-female couples, and that science affirms the goodness of extramarital affairs and fantasies.

However, the study is not based on married male-female couples: it focused almost exclusively on homosexual couples who practice “consensual non-monogamy.” Titled The Psychology of Gay Men’s Cuckolding Fantasies, the study’s survey participants were largely drummed up from pro-homosexual social media sites, including those belonging to homosexual activist Dan Savage.
