Introducing New Partners: Threesomes to Moresomes

Threesome couple


There are many fun and exciting things to try in the realm of sexuality, everything from role-play, to kink to sex toys. At some point you may find yourself wanting to add something else to your sexy time, another person… or two… or more. Adding someone new to your sexual adventures is definitely possible, and pleasurable, it just requires communication and planning between you and your partner. From threesomes to moresomes, here are some ideas on how to play in a way that is safe and consensual.

Are You Ready?

Adding another partner to your playtime can put undue stress on a relationship, especially if it’s already under duress. Your relationship doesn’t have to be perfect but it should be healthy. Adding a sex toy may help with issues in the bedroom but using another person as a sex toy will not. Communication is very important so you should be able to speak openly and honestly with your partner about how you want to open up to include another person. Do you just want a “play partner” that is a friend only for sexy fun times, like swinging, or do you want to include them in your life more fully like in polyamory. Polyamory is when you go beyond casual sex with one or more people into a more committed relationship. You can be anywhere on the spectrum from extremely casual to extremely committed. The choice is yours; there is no right way or wrong way in choosing your level of commitment (or non-commitment). Also understand that this is not infidelity if all parties are aware and approve of what’s going on. If your added partner has a partner, they need to be aware and on board with it too. What you’re looking for in an enthusiastic yes. No one should ever be cajoled or coerced into participating.


Starting the Conversation

It’s important to have a good long talk with your partner about what you are looking for both in the additional partner and the type of play you want to engage in. Be direct, it won’t help to pussy foot around so your partner doesn’t understand you clearly. If you’re not sure how to bring up the subject try something to get the dialog started. Talk about a sexy threesome scene while watching porn you both enjoy. Ask your partner if they ever fantasized about another partner or if they ever felt attracted to someone of the same gender. You can read erotica together and gauge their desire to act out any threesome scenes. Once you’ve broken the ice, be more upfront about your desires. You want them to be with you all the way. If you got your enthusiastic yes, the next step is to figure out how you want to find another play partner and have a good talk about safer sex. Some of you may already have someone in mind or you may want to find someone new. Do you want another male partner or a female partner, or both? How many are you comfortable with adding? Agree on the degree of sharing you want to do and what is off limits. Discuss safer sex options you’d like to employ and get tested so you can go into this new arrangement knowing that you are aware of your status. Don’t forget to come up with a plan to deal with jealousy or a change of heart.

Finding a Partner/s

An intro into multiple partners can be with a person you already know. A bisexual female friend can be a way to start but not the only way. You may find a bisexual male friend works best for you. When approaching someone you know, be polite and direct in a friendly way. You want to come off as someone who is sincere in their desires, not creepy. Keep the conversation friendly and open, if they don’t give you that enthusiastic yes you need then move on. You can find new partners at dance clubs or social events or by going to events that are geared specifically towards finding other sexual partners. There are swing clubs where you can find singles looking for couples, casual meet and greets and online dating sites like OKCupid, which is non-monogamy friendly. You can try a Swinger dating site where you can approach someone online. Craigslist can be successful but comes with more risk than a dating or swinger site. Whether it’s an everyday dance club, a sexy party or an online connection, take the time you need to get to know your prospective new partner. When you find someone that works for both of you, have the safer sex talk.  It’s important to know if they’ve been tested for STI’s recently. This should not offend anyone, as it’s important to both their health and any partners to know their status. Also make sure they are on board with your safer sex practices like dental dams and condoms for both penetrative sex and oral sex. Knowing if they have a latex allergy is important too. Most importantly, you don’t owe anyone any sex at any time. If you change your mind you can politely decline, thank them for their time and either decide to reschedule or regroup and start again. Your new partner should understand if this is your first time opening up.

I Have An Idea

What do you do once everyone is ready to get sexy? Things may happen organically but sometimes there’s an awkward pause. Setting up some time to relax can help. Have dinner, have some drinks (but not too much, you’re in the sexual drivers seat here) or do something fun that puts you in the mood. The amazing sex educator Reid Mihalko has a great way of initiating conversation; it’s simply saying “I Have An Idea.” It breaks the ice and begins the conversation. Share something you’ve always wanted to do or ask one of the other partners to share something they’d like to do. Play a sexy board game or card game. Sex Is Fun makes a great card game that can inspire everyone to explore. Read erotica, watch a sexy movie, play some sexy music, anything that gets your sexy creative juices flowing. Stay in touch with how everyone is doing no matter how intense things get. Is someone pulling away or seems hesitant, stop and check in. This applies to your new playmate and your partner. Keep the lines of communication open. Does your partner want to stop and have a reassessment talk in the bathroom? Stop and talk! You can even come up with a verbal or non-verbal cue that is like a relationship safe word, it required you to stop and step aside to check in. Above all relax and have a good time. There will be awkward moments so give yourself permission to laugh during sex; it’s actually very hot. Take time with your new partner afterward and show your appreciation for sharing this time with you.

Communicate and Educate

Remember that communication is the key. Talk to your partner, talk to others who have been successful in adding partners or talk to professionals who coach or give advice about threesome and group sex. Educate yourself by reading books like The Threesome Handbook, The Ethical Slut and Opening Up or watch Tristan Taormino’s The Expert Guide to Threesomes. Take a class at your local sex shop or check out articles by reputable sources like Tristan Taormino, Nina Hartley, Dan and Jennifer, Life on the Swingset and Reid Mihalko, who does two great classes about successful threesomes and group sex.  It may seem like a lot of work at first but you’ll be glad you invested the time, and so will your sexy new playmate.

  1. many years ago, soon after my divorce, and before i met my current husband, a fried invited me to visit her for a long weekend. i flew in and we met up, had a great time, one night we went out to a club drinking and dancing, (turns out it was a gay club). the night went great, we had fun. once we got back to her house, i flopped down on the bed, exhausted and drunk. i was feeling sorry for myself, and started to cry. she heard me, and came into the room, layed down next to me, and hugged me. soon i felt her hand on my legs, pushing it's way under my skirt. my legs parted and soon she was fingering me, she maneuvered her way down and i soon felt her hot breath on my inner thighs. she used her fingers and tongue on me until i came twice. i'd never encountered anything like this before. fast fwd 3 years, she came to visit me and my husband, i was kinda "worried" about what might happen, but figured what the hell... husband was working late, so we went out for a couple drinks and some dancing. we got back to our apartment, hubby wasnt there yet. some kissing and fondling occurred, she expertly fingered me to an orgasm, i thought, why not return the favor.. she was on the couch, i was between her legs licking her furry pussy, suddenly the door opened and my husband walked in, i expected him to blow his top, but he only said hi, and proceeded to the bedroom.
    after several minutes, my friend had her orgasm, we kissed and headed off to our separate bedrooms. all i could think of as i climbed into bed was my husbands cock, i wanted it bad. i slowly woke him with my mouth, and he responded. soon i was on top of him, in a 69 his tongue and fingers working magic on my bare pussy. i heard a noise and looked up, i could see a shadow in the hallway outside our door, my GF was standing there watching us !! my husband had no idea what was going on, i was getting more turned on the longer she watched... she stayed there the entire time we were having sex, but never entered the room. the next morning not a word was said, all she did was smile....
    i dont think i'd ever want her to join us, weve never brought up the subject, but i dont mind her watchig

  2. it's been an interesting few days.. i have been talking to my GF, and she's coming to visit us.. during one of our phone calls, she asked if it was going to be a "problem" if we had some "intimate time" together. we've talked about what happened years ago when she visited, she hinted that she doesn't just want to watch this time....
    the other night, my husband had fallen asleep early, and i got up the courage to ask him if he'd be "open" to the thought of her joining us....
    deep down, i knew i didnt want him to fuck her, or for her to go down on him.. he pretty much said the same thing, he wasnt "attracted" to her at all sexually, but if she wanted to join us, there would be some ground rules.
    no 1 on 1 sex with her, even if i was right there, we could pleasure each other together or if he was pleasuring me..
    another phone call ensued , and i layed out the ground rules, and she accepted them!!!
    now i have to get my daughter out of the house at least for one night, we'll see what happens in a couple weeks :-)~

  3. well, my GF came to visit, it was an interesting 5 days. my daughter was working days, husband was working too, so we got to spend a LOT of time together. we did some sightseeing, shopped, barhopped, and had some alone time.
    she watched (from the other side of the bedroom) while my husband serviced me, and seemed to get "bolder" the more she watched us. she laid down in front of me while i was on 4's, i eagerly licked her pussy while my husband was fucking me from behind. i think we all came at once!!!!
    one night after we left a bar, i was drunk and really horny, i decided i wanted to have anal, (i was getting a little tender and sore) i asked my husband if he was UP to it, he grabbed some lube and started to work on me. my GF was nearly in shock, she didnt think he'd ever fit inside me... the next morning she was very curious, and was asking a LOT of questions, she admitted she'd had anal sex before a couple times with her ex husband, her current husband wasnt gonna go "there". she eventually asked if i thought it would be ok if.... i asked, "do you want me husband to assfuck you"?
    she almost shamefully said yes.. i put a plan in motion that day, to see if my husband would do it or not...
    that night my GF and i were in bed, in was on the bottom in a 69, hubby grabbed a clean butt plug, lubed it and slowly slipped in in her ass, i could tell she was uncomfortable, but didnt pull away, or stop circling my clit with her tongue. my husband handed me a silver bullet vibe, and i started working it into her pussy, i saw the plug slip from her ass, and the head of my husband lubed cock heading for her "exit ramp" he eased into her, slowly, and adding more lube he was soon all the way inside her, his balls touching my nose.
    i worked the vibe in her pussy, as he started pumping long strokes into her ass. she stopped licking me, my fingers replaced her lips on my pussy, as her poor ass stretched to accommodate his cock. she was dripping from her pussy into my mouth, husband grunted he was gonna cum, and shoved in deep. i watched as his balls tightened up, and watched his cock twitch as he filled her ass...

    he was almost soft when he finally pulled out. we continued to lick and kiss, until we both fell asleep.
    the next morning hubby had left for work, and it was time to leave for the airport to catch her flight back home.
    she sent me a message when she got back home, apparently it was an uncomfortable flight, due to her sore ass....:-)
