SEX Q&A: How Many People Have Actually HAD A THREESOME?

Threesome. Ménage à trois. Whatever its name, does this act live in fantasy? Or do people really do it? Well … today we find out what we adults are doing behind closed doors.

Story/Script

Hi I’m Rick and today we’re going to find out if threesomes are indeed a thing, and if so, peek under the covers so to speak.

I would be remiss if I didn’t define this, I suppose. Right? A threesome is a sexual act that includes three people. Two men and a woman. Two women and a man. Or all three of the same gender. Got it? 🙂

Threesomes are a very popular sexual fantasy. But how many people have made the jump from fantasy to reality? And who’s most likely to have had a threesome before? Well, as with all things sex, there is research. LOL!

OK, let’s just throw out the number first. 30%. Almost a third of the research participants reported that they had been in at least one mixed-gender threesome before.

As far as who that 30% was? The numbers were similar for men and women, 32% for guys and 29% for the ladies.

Here’s a fun fact, there were actually two studies. One on college aged participants, and one on much older adults. And the winner (if you will) between those two groups? mean, who had the most threesomes by age group? Older adults by far.

The actual numbers were 34% vs 10%. meaning three times as many older participants reported that they had been involved in a MGT (mixed gender threesome). So … go us!

The working theory is that sex in general is a novel activity for younger adults, who haven’t been doing it very long—but it’s less of a novelty for older adults, which may lead them/us to seek more variety in our sexual experiences.

OK, ok …. now you want to know which “flavor” of threesome is more popular. Right? Two females and one male versus two males and one female. The former, by a fair margin. The study showed that of those who reported being in a mixed gender threesome, it was more often than not two women and one man.

However! Quite a few of the participants also reported multiple MGTs, and they didn’t just stick with one variety. 32% of them reported they have been in both 2M1F and 2F1M pairings.

The research also stated that there were very few studies on this. Taboo? They didn’t mention that. Nor did they delve into the emotional aspects, pro or con. But they did say that threesomes are not a rare or uncommon sexual practice and that sex scientists would do well to devote more attention to this understudied topic.

So … go sign up for a research study. The over 50 crowd needs to be counted as well. (outro)
