... in kink-land it's called cuckold, cuckolding...

https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Cuckold

A man who willingly encourages his wife to sleep with other people because it brings him pleasure. Cuckolds exist on a spectrum between two extremes. One on end is the masochistic cuckold who enjoys humiliations, degradation, and other demeaning activities at the hands of his wife and her lover. The alpha cuckold lies at the opposite end of the spectrum and does not enjoy any form of humiliation and often has a direct say in who his wife sleeps with and when.

I'm gonna say ol' Jer-Jer* probably fancies himself a bit of both.

Apparently, Michael Cohen took care of some sexual hush money payments for the Falwells. Cohen then was instrumental in getting Falwell's endorsement for Trump in 2016.

So, Trump owns Falwell. Or at least he did. That's the thing about blackmail: If you come clean, the pressure is off.

Isn't just amazing how everyone around Trump is compromised?

I'm pretty sure Falwell was "enjoying himself" while watching his wife and Granda.

As far as gay, bi or whatever, who cares? In the end, it's Falwell's profound hypocrisy that makes this story important.

Is because he is supposed to be representing conservative evangelical christians who DO view that as completely reprehensible. People here wouldn't and shouldn't care about the actual act... just the hypocrisy on his end based on his own beliefs.

There's lots of giggling on this board about gay sex and plenty of gay slurs.

Count yourself lucky if you've missed them.

If so, this is none of our business. If nobody was under age, and not coerced, they're welcome to enjoy whatever.

If Jerry should feel bad about anything, it's his butting into other people's business.

At least as far as I can see, not one of us cares what he puts in his mouth. The issue is what comes out of it. I'm very much looking forward to the day when the Log Cabin Republicans finally get pissed, put their foot down hard on this kind of hiprocrasy (that otherwise not a liberal in the nation gives a damn about to begin with), and outright END this front of the culture wars once and for all.

Selling parents on a conservative Christian education where the length of skirts is dictated and no kissing or dancing is allowed,

Liberty U has had this man as its President from 2007 through 2020.

because they're used to their religious leaders behaving this way. It doesn't take much for them to believe their chosen political leader's life with his multiple marriages and sexual activities are okay, too.

And, yes, that makes him a consenting adult, but it also makes him the same age as all the students at Liberty University. That adds an ick factor for me. How many students did the ‘first couple’ of LU fantasize about before they found a good looking young man who lived a safe distance away?
