What this is not: cuckholding, sissy, demeaning. What this is: Exploring sensuality with permission of spouse. Curious if anyone has experience with well-managed NM. It is very complex and requires a high degree of honesty from all involved; often it devolves into one form or another or expression of contempt, but that is not the point. I was in an open marriage for 9 of our 11 years and it worked wonderfully until rules were broken and underlying psychology leaked out. Long story short that ended and I am 22 years into my marriage. Wife went from high interest to nearly none sexually, under the influence of a few drinks I am not really her type sexually though she deeply loves me, and I her. I encouraged her to explore her interests benignly and not deny her desires. That happened and she appreciated the freedom. She was the "other women" with a married man before we met; he was the love of her life I think. I would like her to pursue excitement with an appropriate person, and would appreciate doing the same. Anyone else with experience? Thanks
