Committed Couples Who've Had A Threesome Sound Off About How It Turned Out

Love and commitment takes work. It's not as happily ever after as the movies like to portray it. One consistent issue in sustaining a long term love story is keeping the intimacy and the sex interesting. After awhile with the same old face one might feel as though the heat has fizzled. Certain adventure can be a risk but if everyone is on the same page... it's a risk worth exploring.

Redditor _airdnaxela_g expressed interest in salacious details regarding relationship adventures by asking People who have had a threesome with their partner, how did that turn out?

ONCE MORE WITH FEELING!

I think my boyfriend thought I was jealous after she left. So he had sex with me almost immediately after. That after threesome sex was the best I've ever had.

AT LEAST IT'S A SHOW.

It was a little, hmm, crushing maybe? A hit to the ego?

The two girls seemed to enjoy it with each other more than anything else.

HOW MATTER OF FACT.

Me and my g/f went out drinking one night, met a girl at the bar and she came back to my apartment for some more drinks. Had a threesome that was amazing, and the girl left when we were done. Talked to the g/f after and we both agreed it was a lot of fun and went to bed. Woke up the next day, talked about how much fun we had and after that it was never brought up again for the next year we dated.

AND THEN THERE WAS 1!

It went okay. There were two no-shows, but I salvaged it.

CRYING?! THERE'S NO CRYING IN THREESOMES!

Started out great. We had a female friend who we'd been flirting with for a while. She came over for dinner and a few drinks. The three of us started making out, clothes were coming off, hands were going everywhere, and then... My partner started crying. Threesome over. Friend went home, and we hugged and talked it out.

I LIKE BIG BUTTS AND I CANNOT LIE.

The other girl had a bigger butt and I didn't even make it to my gf. My girlfriend watched me have sex with her friend. But her friend satisfied her. We are no longer together and its super awkward whenever i see either of them

TRIFLIN'!!

It was very meh. My boyfriend at the time was really into the idea. We talked a girl we met at a party. Turns out, it was basically two straight girls with one dude, the girl and I weren't into each other at all. It's not like she was unattractive or anything, just am not into girls really, as it turns out.

My boyfriend then goes and keeps talking to her after the threesome, and when he tells me that we were going to do it again, I told him no, but then he said he had flirted with her too much to back out at this point, and it happened a second time. It really pissed me off that he didn't respect that no means no... one of the many reasons that he is now an ex.

Later the girl started texting him asking to have sex with just him...

WHY BOTHER THEN?

For me, I feel like I couldn't really enjoy it because I was manipulated into it. He spend 3 years trying to convince me to do it. She wasn't all that into it either as it turns out.

JUST ARMS & LEGS EVERYWHERE!

Not my partner but had a 3 some with my best friend and his girl. (MMF) a couple times and once I picked up a girl at the bar who was into it so we had a 4 some. Friend and his girl are still together and I'm in a relationship with a new girl now who's definitely not into it so we don't do it anymore and I don't push for it.

SEIZE THE DAY!

Surprisingly well. My husband had a little crush on a coworker and would "jokingly" ask me for a threesome. I brushed it off for a while, and considered it just harmless office flirting. Then one night she babysat for us, and the joke was brought up again, and we just kinda went for it. I initially did it to fulfill his fantasy, but I was surprisingly into it and we all had enough fun to do it again a few weeks later. Before the encounter, I was starting to get a bit jealous of their flirtatious relationship, but here's the twist: it turns out, she actually had a crush on me! She wanted to make it a regular thing and wanted to hook up with me solo. Once I realized her intentions, I had to end it. "Breaking up" with her was a bit awkward, but we had fun while it lasted. No regrets.

SOMETIMES IT WORKS AND SOMETIMES NO.

I had one partner that really took it hard after (it was her idea in the first place), and I had one that loved doing it on the regular. I was cool with it. Lots of fun times.

BE ON SOLID GROUND.

My fiancee and i had a threesome. She ended up sticking around for over a year. It was fun while it lasted though. Including her, we had a five \some and a foursome. Still with the fiancee. Relationship between she and i is a bit rocky. Tends to happen when you involve emotions into the mix.

HOW POETIC...

My girlfriend wanted a threesome

To that I readily agreed

Imagine my shock

When they forsake my "stuff"

And then kept going without me.

THE SECRETS TO FOREVER.

I've done this several times and everything was good with all the ladies. And guys.

It's not for everyone, probably not for most people. But if you go into it with the right attitude and some understanding it can be enlightening, erotic, and fulfilling for everyone. The first time was my wife's (girlfriend at the time) idea. She had a very good friend who was having some trouble finding a useful partner for sexual purposes. She was also not interested in a long term relationship of any sort. Her career was just taking off and she worked long and irregular hours.

So, my wife offered me for some fun times. My wife and I were, and are, very open about things. But when she came home after a girls night out and said"I told Sherry she could bang you," I was a bit surprised.

The first several times were threesomes. Then Sherry would show up by herself. No issues at all. We're all still great friends. Sherry got married a couple years later and asked us to keep the secret. Her new husband was ultra religious and very conservative. We kept the secret and never was a word spoken.

This happened probably 5-7 times with different ladies. And I was reciprocal. If we met a guy she liked we did the same. That was much rarer. I suppose because she is really more into FFM than two guys. But we do have a guy she sees now, probably a couple times a month. And I still sometimes see the other ladies, whenever they are interested. I'm not as able lately, due to a spinal injury, but I try to help where I can.

It has been great. We've been married 20 years and neither of us has ever hinted at any sort of jealousy. We know we'll be together until the dirt falls on our caskets and, until then, everything is wide open. It's great for us, but I can certainly see where and why it might be a serious obstacle to many others. It takes a special kind of trust and the right people or you'll end up riding off a cliff into disaster.

HOW MATURE.

My bf (now ex) and I invited another girl in, a few times. An acquaintance of his prior (they hadn't slept together previously though).

We all slept together a few times, I started catching the feels for her, she started getting the feels for him and we called it quits soon after that because we were all open about it and didn't want things to drastically change.

It was always just for fun and enjoyment and yeah, adults about it thankfully and good communication. The threesomes were hot as hell and still think about them at times!

BE IN THE MOMENT.

Not a threesome, but a MFMF foursome. Twice. With the same couple.

The first time was incredible. The second time was just this past weekend and it was also pretty great but I'm a little in my head about it and sort feeling weirdly vulnerable and self-conscious about it now.

T.M.I !!

Bad... alcohol and erectile dysfunction.

SEXY SECRETS BETWEEN FRIENDS.

Pretty great. Happened quite often over the course of a couple years. We're still close friends with the other girl, who is now married.

SPREAD THE WEALTH?

I got to disappoint 2 women instead of just one.

BE HONEST.

I wanted to have one, and my ex said she did too.

Well, apparently she didn't, but was too afraid to say anything and eventually dumped me.

I'D RATHER ROAST BEEF & SWISS...

It was okay. I started to think. " would anyone miss me if I wasn't here?" The other girl started to kick me and then I got bored. I ended up making a snack. It was just a sandwich. Turkey. With a little mustard.

Now that college has become a standard requirement for so many jobs and careers, there is a massive push by high schools to get their graduating students accepted and enrolled at an undergraduate college.

On the whole, that's undoubtedly a great thing. A more educated workforce will be prepared to solve the most complex issues facing human beings in the next several decades.

*The following article contains discussion of suicide/self-harm.

The person on the other end of a 911 call has a truly remarkable job.

For those who don't play that professional role, we hope to never encounter the 911 call interaction. But if we do find ourselves making that call, the moment is an anomaly in our lives.

The chaos, the panic, the racing heart, and the desperation are all emotions we, ideally, don't experience on a regular basis.

But for the operator on the other end, our call is one in a long line of calls they've received all day, and all the workdays before that one.

It's difficult to imagine being embedded in those uniquely urgent, emergency moments all the time.

Some Redditors who are on the other end of that call shared their experiences on the job.

WhimsicalxxButcher asked, "911 dispatchers what has been your most creepy/unnerving call?"

For a few, the most unnerving moments were the calm callers.

There was something just so eerie about how level-headed the faceless human being on the other end could be through such a desperate, tragic moment.

Almost Clinical 

"I had a friend who worked as a 911 dispatcher and he always said the worst call he ever had was a ~20 year old kid who committed suicide by mixing a bunch of chemicals together in his car to produce hydrogen sulfide gas."

"He said that the most unnerving part was hearing him calmly listing off the chemicals, the type of gas produced, and the effects of hydrogen sulfide on the body (namely the almost instant death it causes at high concentrations)."

"He ended the call by providing the address of the parking lot he was in and saying that nobody should approach the vehicle without hazmat equipment."

"Apparently after that there was a whooshing sound as he dumped the last chemical into the mix, and then the line went dead silent aside for a quiet fizzing noise."

"I know that call screwed him up because he almost never talks about stuff that happens to him on the job. He quit a few months later to go into construction management, and frankly I can't blame him."

-- iunoyou

Planned Out 

"A woman called me, saying she was going to kill herself. She was gassing herself. Gave me her name & address then said she was just going to lie down and 'go to sleep.' And stopped responding to me."

"I kept the line open, trying to get her to speak to me, and eventually heard officers forcing their way in to find her body. I guess she just wanted someone to find her body."

-- mozgw4

Before It Set In 

"When I got a call from a 6 year old who got home from school and laid down to take a nap with his dad. His dad never woke up."

"The kid was so calm when calling it broke my heart."

"I ended up leaving dispatch shortly after. I was good at compartmentalizing the job for the year I was doing it, but it would've broken me in the long run."

-- tasha7712

Other 911 operators were unfortunate enough to receive a call from the very last person they wanted to hear from: a loved one.

These dispatchers' unique position gave them the unexpected access to a family member or friend at their most dire moments.

No More of That 

"My family member is a long time first responder, and 'retired' into doing dispatch. He heard the address (someone else was taking the call) and realized it was his daughter's house."

"He rushed over there just in time to see them wheeling her body out. Overdose."

"Five months later, he was called to his ex-wife's place because his grandson (son of the daughter who recently passed) had his door locked, lights on, but wasn't responding to his grandma."

"He broke the door down and found him deceased in bed. Overdose."

"He's very stoic after years of all sorts of traumatic situations but my heart hurts whenever I think of what all of this must have felt like. Like sand through your fingers."

-- bitchyhouseplant

Knowing the Address

"Not me, but my grandma. I was sitting in the dispatch office, (very small one only 2 dispatchers including my grandma) but she put out a dispatch that there was a gun shot from my best friends address."

"My heart sank to my stomach and broke later that day. He committed suicide."

-- OntaiSenpuu

When it Happened 

"My uncle passing away. Worked as a small town dispatcher for a year or so. Had a bunch of messed up stuff happen on shift, but this call came in in the still hours of the night. Small town, so not many calls after midnight."

"I answered and recognized the name and address on caller id. Aunt was in a frenzy so didn't recognize my voice. I remained calm and got ems and fire rolling to them, but by my aunt's own words he was already blue."

"I went thru debriefing and mandated therapy for a couple other things that happened, but never really talked to anyone about this. I just try not to think about it."

"That was the call I figured out I needed to find a different job."

-- dangitjon

Finally, some simply had a front row seat to sudden tragedy.

These operators were flies on the wall when disaster struck. They never asked to witness what they witnessed, but sometimes that came with the territory.

A Holiday Tragedy 

"My mom is a 911 dispatcher. Early on she said one Christmas Eve while working she got a call from an elderly lady who's husband had just collapsed(and died) from a heart attack and in the background Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas music was playing on blast."

"The lady was screaming and crying and begging for her husband to wake up but my mom could hear his gurgling in his last breathes. She doesn't listen to or watch Alvin and the chipmunks since."

-- Blueflowerbluehair

What is it About Christmas?

"Christmas night. 911 call with crying child on the other end. A neighbor had run her car over her mom during a domestic."

"The mom crawled to the porch bleeding and the child saw the car coming back. I had her hide quietly in a closet with the cordless phone."

"The 10 year old child was crying and screamed that she hated Christmas. She was afraid of the police when they got there."

"I kept her on the phone until she felt safe enough to give the phone to an officer. I almost fainted after that call was over. Had nightmares for a while."

-- 2FunBoofer

Close to Home 

"Not a dispatcher but I handle radio communications for the Coast Guard. One night I was on the radio and got a call from an 11 year old kid whose boat had started to sink. He was out with his dad and 6 year old brother."

"They had been hit by another boat and his father got knocked unconscious. I remember the entire conversation up until the radio had gone underwater."

"They ended up finding his dad floating on his back alive but the two boys didn't make it. That one really fu**ed with me because my two littlest brothers were around the same age as the youngest."

-- HIRSH2243

A Horrible Clock 

"Another one that stays with me was the man who called in. It was the anniversary of his adult son having hanged himself. He'd now come home to find his wife had done the same."

"That date is always going to be a black day for him."

-- mozgw4


If you or someone you know is struggling, you can contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

To find help outside the United States, the International Association for Suicide Prevention has resources available at https://www.iasp.info/resources/Crisis_Centres/

Again, we hope you never have to use the 911 call in your life. Nobody wants to be involved in a sudden emergency or a tragic incident.

But hopefully, if you do, an operator like one of these thoughtful, sensitive Redditors is on the other end.

When I was moving on from middle school to high school my parents had me tested for the "gifted" program. By some miracle I passed and was accepted. And then I turned it down. Everyone was irritated. "This will pave the way for any college you want! You'll learn so much!" his path will set you up for life!" Every adult tried valiantly to sell me this merchandise but in my gut I just wasn't buying it. So I "settled" a level below, merely advanced classes. And upon reflection... it was the best choice I ever made.

Redditor u/dauntlessdaisy was wondering how far some in life got by asking... For those of you who were considered "gifted" in school, what are you doing with your life now?
