Ask Dr. NerdLove: How Do I Ask My Friend For A Threesome?

Hey Doc,

I am a bisexual lady in a really comfortable relationship with my fiancé (a dude). Lately, we now have been discussing the potential of getting threesomes, as a approach of exploring our sexuality additional collectively.

I have had one thing of a long-standing crush on a mutual good friend of ours. He’s part of our principal group of buddies who we hang around with weekly to play D&D with. We’re all barely awkward nerds. I’ve been getting a basic vibe recently that the attraction may be mutual, particularly after we spent nearly all of the final get together we had principally cuddling. However I really feel I might additionally simply be studying what I need to be into what may be pleasant interactions for him! I’ve been considering recently that I may need to be simple about my attraction to him, and ask if he’d be up for a threesome. My fiancé is conscious of all of this and is open to it as properly.

I simply actually don’t need to make issues uncomfortable between us. I actually like him as an individual and worth his friendship greater than something. I assume a threesome might be numerous enjoyable if he was , however I don’t need to be creepy, or make him really feel like I’ve been his good friend underneath false pretenses. If his reply was no I can be completely comfortable with that, and it wouldn’t change how I really feel about him as a pal. I’ve solely ever had intercourse with my fiancé earlier than, so that is actually a varsity degree dialog that I don’t know how you can even begin, or if I ought to begin in any respect. What ought to I do?

Thanks,
Don’t Know If I Can Make This Diplomacy Verify

OK brief model: this can be a dangerous concept, DC. There’re simply too many unknowns concerned right here and too many ways in which might find yourself with a crucial fumble on the mistaken second. Then abruptly you’re caught with a drama bomb that’s about to go off, messily and far and wide.

Now as a basic rule, I’m all in favor of including some journey to your intercourse life. I’m very a lot professional threesomes, if that’s what you’re considering. However discovering the suitable individual to deliver into the sport is necessary, as a result of the stakes may be surprisingly excessive. The fallacious addition can flip attractive enjoyable and video games into an disagreeable mess. Any person who doesn’t respect the boundaries of your relationship may cause strife even once they’re not there. Loads of individuals have had points with particular visitor stars – or their companions – deciding that if it’s cool for all three of you to bang, then somewhat one-on-one time is simply effective too. Then there’s the difficulty of dealing with the connection with the third get together afterwards. One of many the reason why discovering a 3rd could be tough is as a result of so many couples deal with their third like a toy; they solely need that additional individual for so long as the attractive occasions are happening and kick them out earlier than the sweat has even cooled. And ideally, you need somebody who will perceive and respect the connection between you and your fiancé and never trigger a fuss in the midst of issues.

The perfect associate for a threesome, particularly if it’s your first ever, is both typically somebody you have already got an excellent relationship with – an ex you’re on good phrases with, for instance – or knowledgeable. In each instances, you’re much more more likely to have somebody who can talk clearly, who will respect the principles you all lay out prematurely and who gained’t trigger issues afterwards.

On this case, I assume you’ve picked the mistaken potential addition to your celebration.

Let’s begin with the very fact you don’t actually understand how a lot he’s into you… or how. I imply, sure, cuddling usually is usually a signal somebody’s . By the identical token, some people are cuddlers and haven’t any drawback being a part of a pet pile with their pals; that doesn’t imply that they’ve any sexual curiosity within the individuals they’re cuddling with. That is info that you simply may need to have earlier than you attempt to making your transfer on them.

However even when he’s , beginning off with a threesome is a reasonably large ask. I imply, positive it’s potential he’d be down for hooking up with you, however that doesn’t essentially imply they need to be the meat man in your specific attractive sandwich. It’s one factor if it have been simply the 2 of you. It’s one other completely – if he’s down within the first place – to say “OK but it’s not just me, it’s me and my fiancé.” That provides all types of additional layers of problem that’s going to have you ever rolling with drawback. To start out with, there’s the speedy query of whether or not he likes threesomes within the first place. Yeah, porn tells us that threesomes are the top-tier prize, however attractive is within the eye of the beholder and never everyone is into it. Some people don’t need the strain of making an attempt to please two individuals directly – or be happy by them, for that matter. Others don’t do their greatest work with a crowd. And if he have been into you and into having a threesome with you proper off the bat, the very fact it’s together with your male fiancé could also be a line. There’re a variety of people on the market who’re down for hooking up with two ladies however get vexed on the considered one other dick within the room.

And even when all the things rolled good: he was into you, and right into a threesome off the bat and cool with it being with you and one other man… he may not be cool with the thought of doing it together with your fiancé, particularly, collaborating.

That’s a number of stackable modifiers to that exact persuasion verify. And it’s already a varsity degree dialog to have with somebody. The very last thing you need to do is invite him over, wave in your fiancé and ask “So how do you want to do this?”

Now, in case your fiancé is amenable to opening up the connection considerably to allow you to pursue issues with the DM, you then may be capable of work in the direction of ultimately having a threesome. However basically, I assume this can be a dangerous concept and a nasty method to attempt to leap straight into advanced-level playing around. That is one thing you may need to desk and are available again to when you’ve received a number of extra ranges beneath your belts.

Good luck.


Whats up Doc,

To begin with I’m sorry for those who’ve been requested this earlier than. I’ve been a very long time lurker and also you give some good recommendation and I hope you possibly can assist me.

I’m 24 and I by no means kissed or held arms with a woman, work out the remaining. I realize it’s pathetic however I can’t cease serious about the whole lot I missed and I’ll by no means have the ability to experiment. Lacking out teen love mortifies me and I assume it fucked me up. I imply, in your teenage years you get your first relationships and also you study the fundamentals about being with somebody, what’s like, the way it works, what to do, what to don’t, how you can behave, and so forth. And also you do it with somebody as inexperienced as you in that fantastic time of your life whenever you had no huge worries in any respect. I know it might sound tacky or perhaps I have an idealised, however that’s what I noticed from the shadows and now everytime I see a younger couple strolling on the street I need to cry and it ruins my day. In reality, I can’t see footage or television exhibits the place romance is concerned with out eager to cry.

I know I’ll be single for the remainder of my life. I know I can’t predict the longer term or know what is going to occur, however I take a look at the chances. To satisfy somebody you want pals or acquaintances so they might introduce you to somebody they know or simply be in the correct place on the proper time. I don’t have associates or acquaintances. So the probabilities of assembly a woman are almost inconceivable or have a low-probability, whereas dying alone and nobody noticing it after a number of weeks due to the odor is extra possible. Believing that out there’s somebody who can love me is like considering that pink whales exist. It’s true I by no means approached a woman, however when I see a woman I discover cute, I all the time assume that she’s too fairly and I’m unlovable. That’s why keep away from women just like the plague and I attempt to not be near them, as a result of is a continuing reminder that I’ll be alone ceaselessly. I’m hideous, too bizarre, I don’t have social expertise and I’ll by no means strategy somebody as a result of that’s like telling them ‘hey, I think you have low standards, bad taste and poor eyesight. Wanna hang out?’ I know each woman will reject me so there isn’t any level in making an attempt. Highschool taught me women are disgusted by my mere presence and that I ought to avoid them and by no means dare to take a look at them. That’s what I do on a regular basis and I attempt to not present any curiosity in any respect. No woman deserves me as a result of they deserve somebody higher as a result of it’s easy: there are tens of millions of men on the market and I know I’m among the many worst (excluding criminals). I can’t improve their lives, as a result of I don’t have anything to do it. They deserve somebody regular, not me.

My query is, how can I settle for this? I imply I KNOW I’ll find yourself alone and that I’ll by no means get a girlfriend or to like somebody that loves me again, however it hurts me to the purpose I haven’t slept properly in months. I keep up hours considering and ruminating about this and typically I cry. A lot. I simply need to have the ability to say ‘I’ll by no means expertise love, so what?’. I don’t need to get unhappy figuring out I’ll by no means get a girlfriend, get married, have youngsters and lift them collectively. I simply need to settle for my destiny and cease worrying about one thing I can’t change. Or at the least have the ability to sleep nicely and be considerably joyful being alone.

I assume you got here to the improper place, QUIT, since you’re asking me to log off in your choice to surrender and that’s not what I do. If you wish to hand over, lay down and decay… properly, that’s your determination. You don’t want my permission to try this. However I’m additionally not going to be the individual to inform you that that is the appropriate determination or to applaud you for doing so. My job is to assist individuals make things better and discover options and I’m NOT going to be the man to inform you “nope, nothing you can do, time to die.”

And, straight speak: you don’t must be speaking to me, my dude. It’s essential to be speaking to a therapist, as a result of the belongings you’re describing? They’re not affordable. For those who’re feeling this a lot emotional anguish over being a bit of to the correct on the far-end of the virginity bell-curve, then the difficulty isn’t whether or not you’ll be ceaselessly alone, it’s the adverse thought patterns and the ache they’re inflicting you. I imply, I hate to interrupt up the pity social gathering (no, that’s a lie; I actually don’t) however you’re not that uncommon of a beast; almost a 3rd of males are nonetheless virgins between the ages of 20 – 24.

However to be completely blunt: you’re speaking lots of shit my dude. It’s like I’ve advised people earlier than: you’re not a prophet. You possibly can’t see the longer term and no, you DON’T know that you simply’re by no means going to have a girlfriend. What you have got here’s a metric ass-ton of self-imposed, self-limiting beliefs which might be based mostly on candy fuck-all and a heaping dose of self-pity.

I imply, let’s begin with the truth that you didn’t have a girlfriend if you have been a young person. Neither did a lot of individuals. You’re proper: you’ve a totally idealized – and utterly fantastical – concept of what courting and teenage love was like. It sounds to me like a whole lot of your concepts about what courting would’ve been like in high-school got here from TV and books as a result of it positive as hell doesn’t seem like something most individuals have seen. You don’t come out of your first relationship as an adolescent with a brand new information of how the whole lot works; half the time, you don’t know what the precise fuck occurred and also you’re as confused as you have been earlier than… if no more so. Nor, for that matter, are you assured that you simply’re going to be with somebody who’s as equally clueless as you. The truth that you’re the identical age doesn’t imply that you’ve commensurate ranges of expertise. Simply as some individuals have been late bloomers, others bloomed early and should have been sexually lively at an earlier age.

And truthfully: having had a relationship in high-school doesn’t routinely set you up for courting success later in life any greater than not having had one dooms you. You might need to attempt speaking to a few of your LGBT friends; lots of them lived in locations the place there have been no different queer youngsters for them up to now. Hell, there’re many who didn’t come out till lengthy after high-school and didn’t begin courting till they have been of their 20s. All not having gone by way of the emotional roller-coaster that’s courting in high-school means is that you simply’re simply going to be going by means of that journey just a little later than some people. That’s neither an excellent or dangerous factor. It doesn’t imply that you simply’re at a everlasting drawback otherwise you’re doomed to failure. It simply signifies that you didn’t begin concurrently different individuals did and that’s positive as a result of you’re not truly in competitors with them. There’s no prize for attending to any specific courting milestone first. You don’t get bonus factors in life since you misplaced your virginity earlier than the median age (17-18)

(And present me somebody who had no massive worries as a young person and I’ll present you somebody who doesn’t keep in mind what being a youngster was like. Every thing was a trigger for stress; you simply didn’t have the expertise or perspective to know what belongings you have been alleged to get stressed over.)

However actually every thing else you convey up is both self-inflicted, simply corrected or each. Your complaints are virtually word-for-word the identical as most of the different individuals who’ve written into me earlier than, and the options are virtually similar as nicely. Nearly all the things you describe is the kind of factor that you may change within the matter of weeks.

Let’s be actual right here: nearly every thing you’ve informed me is predicated on pure hypothesis. You say it your self: you’ve by no means approached anybody earlier than. Cool so then you definitely don’t know that you simply’re going to get rejected. You’re simply assuming you’ll. Why are you assuming that you’ll? Since you consider no one might probably have an interest. And you recognize this based mostly on…. what, precisely?

Nicely, going by your letter, high-school. Besides, as we’ve already coated: not solely is high-school not like actual life, however we’re already able the place we will’t actually belief you to be the trustworthy assessor of your personal life proper now.

There isn’t a factor that you simply’ve talked about that may’t be fastened and most of it’s only a matter of an order of operations. You don’t have buddies or acquaintances. OK… so it appears apparent to me that step one can be to start out working in the direction of making some. You don’t have social expertise? You possibly can truly develop these. They’re referred to as social SKILLS for a cause; you construct them by means of acutely aware and deliberate follow. You assume you’re hideous? Properly, to start with, I would adore it if I had a nickel for each single average-to-good-looking dude that advised me he was so ugly he made blind individuals scream. So I’m already calling bullshit. However second of all: that’s fixable too. Not with cosmetic surgery or another bullshit reply however actually easy grooming and elegance methods. I imply, all you’ll want to do is watch any given episode of Queer Eye to see simply how transformative some decently becoming garments and a haircut could be.

However earlier than you do any of that? You could be prepared to truly let go of the fucked up, bullshit incel logic you’ve obtained happening. You could get the hell away from the incel boards and subreddits I know that you simply’re visiting – belief me, I’ve heard all of this earlier than – and give up pretending that the truth that one thing hurts signifies that it’s true. No, the truth that one thing hurts simply signifies that it hurts. Fact can harm, however there’s one thing that hurts as a result of it’s true after which there’s what you’re doing: the emotional equal of self-harm.

That you must speak to an precise therapist, QUIT, and ideally one who focuses on sexual and emotional anxieties like you could have. I would strongly recommend that you simply go to the web site for the American Affiliation of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists; they’ve a referral listing that may allow you to discover a skilled in your space. Working with them will enable you to take an important first step: they may also help you study to place down the ache that you simply’re inflicting on your self as a way to lastly heal and understand that you simply’re flawed. The world isn’t the merciless, chilly and darkish place you assume it’s. You’re not doomed, you’re not forgotten and also you’re not destined to be endlessly alone. You’re simply lonely and in ache.

Begin by addressing that ache. When you’re not hurting your self as a lot, you’ll understand simply how a lot potential you could have and the way a lot this world truly has to supply, when you cease viewing it by means of eyes clouded by self-hate.

This will and will get higher. I promise.

All can be properly.
