Expert's view on threesomes


Once again, it's perfectly normal to feel reluctant about this kind of act. In many cases, it's the man who brings it up because he wants to spice up his sex life by taking part in an out-of-the-ordinary experience.
Risks for the couple
A threesome can have harmful consequences on one or both partners: they may begin questioning themselves and the relationship, feelings of disgust may develop towards the other person, jealousy, rage, etc.

It's therefore very important never to force yourself, even if your partner is insistent. Explain to him why you don't want to, and try to understand why he wants to... (Where does this desire come from? Is he unsatisfied with his sexual relations with you?)
Tips
- To break up the routine, you're not obliged to introduce a third person into your sex life! Instead, try to find alternatives based on your parter's tastes and preferences. After all, you know him better than anyone!
- If you're single, the stakes aren't so high. Having a threesome lets otherwise shy or inexperienced women have a sexual experience with less pressure than in a one-to-one.

- If you or your partner is turned on by the idea of having sex with a different person then why not become that other person? Wear a wig, glasses or an outfit you'd never normally wear and try a little role play.
