Threesome Myths

Woman Hogtied

Sorry to be the harbinger of bad news to those still chasing their elusive first threesome, but here’s a big fat truth: Most people will have lived and died without ever having experienced a threesome.

C’est la vie insatisfaite. Group sex experiences usually linger in fantasyland, whether because of jitters or plain old bad luck. As a result, most of what the uninitiated imagine apropos 3sums is just that: imagined—not necessarily false, but certainly mythical.

I so remember my first feeble attempts at A) putting the idea out there to those I thought might be like-minded and B) putting together a sexy soirée. In both cases the results were disastrous. (I just now checked my thesaurus for the most severe synonym of DISASTER and have settled on ARMAGEDDON. That’s how disastrous.)

If getting naked and lying in a pile is on your bucket list, it’s probably not a bad idea to have a few infamous threesome myths armageddoned from your expectations. Some might be good news, some not so much. Depends on who you are and what you’re after. Either way, take it from someone who’s done plenty of legwork on the subject.

MYTH: Everyone wants to try a threesome. I wish! Most people include it in their fantasies but would never want to cross that line. Others find the whole idea distasteful (for whatever reasons of their own). Then there’s the rest of us.

MYTH: Everyone would enjoy a threesome, if only they’d give it a try. This is totally wishful thinking on the part of someone (probably a guy) pushing for a 3sum and trying to convince others to feel the same way. If ever you face apprehension, move on. The last thing you want is to subsequently deal with having cornered someone to the point of regret or resentment.

MYTH: threesomes are a male fantasy. Nice try, but there are plenty of women who love them. I know because most of what I’ve learned about group sex I’ve learned from women. No woman is better at sex than a woman who is comfortable enough to cut loose in pile.

MYTH: threesomes are about satisfying a man. Porn is problematic in that it dramatizes women actually getting off solely from satisfying the man in the group. Again, what a wonderful world this would be. But I call your attention to the aforementioned myth regarding the male fantasy: I’ve been in group situations wherein I’ve had to satisfy the women, in some demanding (on me) way, to the point of my own distraction. Not that I’m complaining, just sayin’, for the myth-bustin’ record, is all.

MYTH: threesomes are easy to arrange if you put your mind to it. If only. First you have to find others who are into it. Then you have to find others who are into it and compatible. Then you have to find others who are into it and compatible and available on the same day or night. Even once you’re in the 3sum loop, good luck finding others who are into it and compatible and available at the same time.

Having laid these myths out, I now think they’re all good news. They illustrate there’s nothing wrong with us: the fantasy is challenging to realize.

But doesn’t that make it more worthwhile?
