As I understand it, candalagnia is the practice of a husband taking pleasure in observing his wife perform coitus or other intimate acts with other men. In some instances, this behavior could involve coercion on the part of the husband to the wife. In other instances, it is a cooperative venture that provides both husband and wife with pleasure and creates a bond between the husband and wife through the repeated act of sharing a "taboo" activity that satisfies both their desires. Jealousy is not an issue. The wife is free to choose her own partners, most of whom are the husbands superior in various aspects of sexuality. The episodes always are completed with a loving and mutually satisfying intercourse between the husband and wife. My question is, in the latter, more positive scenario (sans coercion) is this a healthy activity (disregarding STDs) for the couple? Is it deviate, aberrant or simply unusual?
