A cuckold (or cuck) is a married man with a sexually unfaithful wife. In current usage it sometimes refers to non-married couples as well, although the common and traditional meaning is a man who is a victim of his wife's adultery. A female cuckold is called a cuckquean.

The term has acquired additional meanings among sexual fetishists, referring to couples where a dominant female takes on additional partners, while a submissive male is either monogamous to her, denied sex altogether, or only allowed to perform a restricted range of sex acts with her.

Cuckolding may also be part of the practice of male dominant-female submissive couples. A submissive wife may be "naughty" with another man with her husband's knowledge and permission, then return to tell him about the betrayal and submit to punishment from the husband.

Cuckolding among female-dominant couples differs from the original definition of cuckolding in that many of these men are voluntarily "cuckolded" by their wives, as part of the husband's sexual fantasy of gaining sexual pleasure from being humiliated by his wife, sometimes even from being forced to be passive sexual partner for her bull; indeed, the husband may even be the instigator of this practice, raising questions about who is truly the dominant partner. This is a common theme in letters to erotica magazines.

Some men may enjoy watching their wives cuckolding them, possibly while they themselves are tied up and gagged so that they are unable to intervene.

In the fantasy realm, the wife of a cuckold is sometimes referred to as a hotwife, less often as a cuckoldress (wife with a pronounced dominant attitude). In a broader context, the contrast between a cuckold and bull is sometimes used to summarize an individual's personality or behaviour; the male third party, or bull representing an aggressive alpha male and the cuckold suggesting weakness, fear and vulnerability.
