We're always hearing stories about how awesome threesomes can be if done right and with respect, so it's only natural to wonder whether it could be something you'd enjoy yourself. Here, 11 people explain the impact having a threesome had on their relationships.

  1. "Nothing changed."


    "It didn't change our relationship. We have great communication when it comes to sex and that's all it takes really. We sometimes do sex parties and as long as we are open and honest about our boundaries and respect one another it's all good. It would destroy a relationship however if one or the other party was not 100% into it and just went along with it." [via Reddit]
  2. "It went to hell."


    "Destroyed it. We were too young, didn't think it through, invited our joint best friend to join us, had a three-way relationship for a couple months. Then it all went to hell. Do I regret it? Kind of. Looking back, it wasn't meant to be, and there were a lot of fun times. But I couldn't handle it in the long run and I would be loathed to try it again." [via Reddit]
  3. "He's now my ex."


    "It made him constantly talk about how the experience had been with her and how much he wanted to repeat the experience over with pretty much every reasonably-attractive female friend I had. And he didn't explain this in a kind way at all. He's now my ex." [via Reddit]
  4. "We've become closer."


    "It makes our relationship stronger. The more threesomes we have (MFF), the closer we become. My GF legitimately derives pleasure from seeing me have sex with other women. She's also heavily lesbian-leaning on the bisexual spectrum, so it's more chances for her to fuck other women. I have a very strong libido and wear her out quickly (I'm on the larger side and she has a low pubic arch which combined makes extended sessions painful for her), so honestly it's kinda nice having multiple girls so I can go longer. The hanging out and breakfasts the next morning are also always lots of fun." [via Reddit]
  5. "It's strengthened our relationship."


    "At first it was something she did for me (MFF threesomes). But as we did them, she had fun. She likes to be bad, and she likes to feel desired, and two people fawning over her in a threesome certainly does both. It's strengthened our relationship because we used the threesomes constructivelyto focus on what we can do to make and keep each other happy. She's also very comfortable with the reality that I have no interest in other womenthat my kink is seeing two women together and making her happy." [via Reddit]
  6. "I should have ended it immediately after."


    "It didn't end immediately, but it should have. I was young (18F), he was my first and I'm bi. He was always pushing for an open relationship, against my wishes. His way of getting around this was getting me drunk and pushing me into a threesome (FFM) with a friend. It was ok while it was happening, and we all went to sleep in the same bed. I was woken up later by them trying to go at it again...They stopped when I obviously got upset. There were a lot of issues in our relationship that I didn't figure out until later. I'm sure threesomes are fine with the right circumstances and reasons, but mine was not that." [via Reddit] 

  7. "It made him even sexier to me."


    "I kind of didn't really think much about it before I was suddenly in the moment and it was happening. Admittedly not the best idea. At that second I was suddenly really worried I was going to be super jealous of the other girl but it turned out I don't have that problem. It hasn't changed our relationship much at all, but I did find out I really like seeing him fuck other girls. I find it intensely sexy to see him have his way with another woman. It makes him even sexier to me. I like to think he's such a man he could have any woman." [via Reddit]
  8. "It helped us tackle our trust issues."


    "It made us closer. We had to tackle some communication and trust issues that we didn't know we had. That either leads to a stronger relationship or puts you on the rocks. It worked out well for us. That was over 15 years ago. We're still ethically non-monogamous." [via Reddit]
  9. "Our relationship ended."


    "My friend and I made a split second decision to both bone my boyfriend because we were fucked up, both horny AF, and somehow realized we were both wearing black panties and black bras. That was our reasoning. We were so stupid. We did it a few more times after that. Then I found out they were sleeping together when I wasn't present and that fucking sucked. When we broke up, they ended up dating for like a year. It was hot and fun at the moment, but I don't think I'll ever do it again." [via Reddit]
  10. "It forced us to stay honest."


    "Didn't really change much, honestly. We were already ethically non-monogamous and had explored that a bit in various ways, so our first threesome didn't really bring anything huge up. Overall, being non-monogamous keeps us close. It stresses our communication skills and forces us to stay honest, with ourselves and the other. Overall its a huge positive for us." [via Reddit]
  11. "We wanted it more."


    "Didn't change anything except made us want more threesomes. And foursomes. I married the best woman in the world." [via Reddit]
