Threesomes hold something of a mythical allure in our collective sexual imagination. Adding an extra body to a sexual encounter is hot as hell for any number of reasons, not least of which is just the sheer visual and physical sensory overload that comes with it. Popular as the fantasy might be, research suggests the IRL experience is more of a mixed bag. In practice, threesomes are actually not that common. For monogamous couples, on the other hand, threesomes might be the single exception to the rule of exclusivity—and experimenting with it might involve some unexpected emotional turbulence along the way. The possibility was always on the table for us, but we pursued it more seriously during a period of non-monogamy. Our first one was with a woman she connected with on OKCupid who brought up the idea first, so there was little tension or awkwardness when we all met up for drinks and went back to our place for a one-night stand.

JENN, My boyfriend suggested a threesome along with a third woman. I've always been curious, so I'm game. But I'm also nervous about hurting our affiliation if things go awry. How be able to we prepare for — and avert — that?

Pinterest I had the phrase not a unicorn in my Tinder profile designed for years. It wasn't to indicate aversion for the mythical being because, hey, I change my hair color a sufficient amount to be in solidarity with their rainbow aesthetic. Instead it was en route for cut down on messages from couples who were unicorn-hunting. The joke is that the existence of such a woman is so elusive she can as well be a mythological animal. Obviously wanting to have a threesome between consenting adults is a coarse and totally healthy fantasy, and triads are one of many relationship models that can work for different ancestor.
