Living The Fantasy: Why Couples Who Have Threesomes Are Happier

For most people, threesomes will never be anything other than something they lust over while watching porn. But for a few lucky people, a threesome is the reality of their active sex lives; something that they’ve found a partner comfortable enough and confident enough to participate in.

They’re one of the most enjoyable and pleasurable experiences one can have in bed, yet they’re still seen as taboo among most of society. So why is it a majority of Americans, citizens the most sexually advanced county in the world, deny themselves of participating in one?

Physiologists suggest that because most people are raised to believe the notion that every man and woman is to have only one husband or wife, they project those monogamist expectations to their sex lives. Which, in a general sense, would make sense. Even the most sexually adventurous couples are often against cheating. But we’re not talking about cheating– We’re talking about threesomes.

Dr. Tom Alloway, a professor of Biology and Behavior in the Graduate School Department Of Physiology at the University of Toronto says that not only are are couples who have threesomes generally happier with their sex lives, but their divorce rate is significantly lower than couples who have a love life exclusively between the two of them.

“It’s a common misconception that the biggest reason for divorce is stemmed from money issues,” says Dr. Alloway. “The largest reason for divorce can actually be pinpointed to sexual frustration. One or both parties starts feeling ignored sexually which can lead to feelings of general rejection. That quickly leads to resentment and, often, to arguments.”

So why are couples involved with threesomes so much better off? It’s all about chemistry!

Besides the obvious benefits of getting to live out  fantasy and potentially learning new moves from the added party, threesomes give you a physical reaction that you wouldn’t get from a partner you’re used to having intercourse with.

The chemical that your brain releases to further stimulate sexual pleasures, oxytocin, is released twice as often when you’re in unfamiliar territories in bed. Often when couples have been together for longer than a year, the amount of oxytocin their bodies receive during intercourse is equivalent to the amount they receive when eating chocolate– and it goes without saying that no one’s every gotten off by eating chocolate. Having a threesome will help reintroduce the necessary oxytocin levels your body craves during sex.

But it’s not all about pleasure– Oxytocin also has the added benefit of stimulating the part of the brain that promotes bonding and love-related feelings.

If you’re involved with someone, consider putting aside traditional views on threesomes and start thinking about how they can enhance your relationship. You’ll get to explore a fantasy that very few people experience, and you’ll be closer because of it.
