• Is Three The Magic Number When It Comes to Sex?

    Is three the magic number when it comes to sex?

    A threeway, troilism, a ménage à trois - call it what you like, but there's no denying that we're obsessed with having three in the bed.

    From Sex And The City to the Lovehoney community forum, it seems we just can stop talking about the top sexual fantasy.

    Fun products like the Threesomes and Threeway anthologies and Orgy Dice help us live out our fantasies - but sometimes you need more advice, which is why we've trawled the best of the net for helpful tips and tricks to help you enjoy your ménage à trois.



    • Want to invite a third person into bed, but not sure how to approach the matter with your partner? How do you make sure both others don't feel left out? What happens afterwards? This article tells you everything you need to know about "The Ettiquette Of The Threesome". [Crushable]
    • Once you start looking for them, you realise that threesomes are everywhere. From Carl Jung to Butch Cassidy, it's clear the ménage à trois lifestyle has been very popular for years from this list of notable occurances throughout history.  [Wikipedia]
    • Not for the faint of heart, this explicit guide to sex positions for a MMF threesome walks you through the mechanics of having that extra person involved in sex. [DodsonAndRoss]
    • And finally, it's clearly not just us who has threesomes on the brain: watch as one contestant is a bit too quick off the mark on a US quizshow. Now, there's a Freudian slip for you! (And we love the fact the guy at the beginning asks for what sounds like 'group sex'.)

    The winner the Lovehoney Enjoy Water-Based Lubricant from last week is Gemma Hill! Congratulations Gemma, we hope you enjoy your prize. For your chance to be a lucky winner this week, simply comment below with your thoughts to be in with a chance to win a copy of Hot Ménage.

      Since getting the realistic Lovehoney dildo with the suction cup recently I have developed a bit of a fantasy for threesome and it seems my boyfriend has too, but I think it will likely stay as just a fantasy.

      weh hay sounds good !
    • Sabrina: November 18, 2012 12:24
      Hmmm I have thought about doing it before, but I imagine it would probably be awkward! Guess you have to find the right people for it.
    • Beanbag: November 18, 2012 12:26
      Certainly was a fantasy I enjoyed fulfilling when I was younger xXx

      The classic of fantasies! Would love to win this as we don't want to share our sex life with others so it would be great to have more to talk about when fantasising

      I've done threesomes before but they're much more awkward than they ought to be. I'm not sure if that's my choice of partners or not, but either way I am in no rush to try them again. Fiction, on the other hand, is wonderfully sexy when there are three on the bed ;)

      Hm, personally quite cautious with the idea of threesomes but reading about it is a whole different story (hehe).
    • grant: November 18, 2012 15:22
      Have heard they are a relationship breaker .But reading about it seems safe
    • christa palmer: November 18, 2012 16:21

    • fizzy: November 18, 2012 20:08
      A book dedicated to threesomes sounds like a great idea to me !
    • rach74: November 18, 2012 20:43
      im just finishing a book so this would be great to read next
    • PinkPolkaDot: November 18, 2012 20:48
      I love reading about threesomes and will definitely try to have one at some point, or two really as I'd like to try both MMF and MFF.

      And it really does sound like he says 'group sex' in the video! No wonder she said threesome haha.

    • sarah: November 18, 2012 22:25
      There is an idea that 2 is company and three is a crowd and i can see the relevance...... 4 on the other hand might just work :D
    • Alexandra: November 19, 2012 14:05
      I have never seriously considered having a threesome. Maybe I'm just a wuss... Reading about it however - very sexy.
    • Darren: November 19, 2012 14:31
      Me and my partner have had a threesome- and it was HOT. im sure we will have another soon, but until then her dildo will have to suffice :)
    • Cherry: November 19, 2012 17:10
      I just love it when my boyfriend fantasises about us having a threesome when we are having hot steamy sex. It makes it mind blowing. Most of the fun is the fact that it wouldnt happen. Maybe one day it will but in the meantime we love to engage our brains and think about it while we play. Fantasising has definately spiced up our sex life.
    • Silverdrop: November 20, 2012 10:32
      Never had a threesome, but last night we used a dildo to have a double penetration session and fantasize that we had another man in the bed. Smoking hot!
    • Hazy: November 20, 2012 23:41
      I haven't considered a threesome up until now, but never say never ;)
    • deadleg21: November 24, 2012 16:52
      Would be sexy enough to win the book :P
    • Cherry: November 25, 2012 01:01
      I think I'd only have one with someone I didn't love. I think I'm too naive to do it with someone I want to spend my whole life with, -where does it stop?
    • jennifer k: November 28, 2012 18:50
      love to fantasize about this and talk about this in bed but there is no way myself or my hubby would do it. It sounds great but i think it would have an effect on our relationship and I couldn't imagine being without my better half :)
