It’s okay when it's in a three-way
It’s not gay when it’s in a three-way
With a honey in the middle there’s some leeway
The area’s grey in a one, two, three-way!

The Lonely Island"3-Way"

Threesomes with two girls are hot. Threesomes with two guys are manly. Note this is not gay, and no heterosexual male will see it as such even if a guy penetrates another guy. If the two guys are related, it's also not incestuous.

If there are more than two guys, the threesome becomes especially manly. Double penetration takes this trope Up to Eleven.

Examples of A Threesome Is Manly include:

  • Y Tu Mama Tambien. This is all you need to know about Y Tu Mama Tambien.
    • Naturally, the threesome leads to plain man-on-man sex. The whole scene comes across as Luisa trying to get Tenoch and Julio to accept their attraction to one another. Sadly, it doesn't work out.
  • In Farinelli, the titular castrated singer is shown sharing all of his flings with his brother. When he eventually falls in love, his brother joins in in bed to impregnate the woman.
  • Suggested by the main character in Chasing Amy to calm a quarrel between his girlfriend and his roommate. As a result, the girlfriend dumps him and the roommate moves out.
  • In the movie Ten Inch Hero, Tish is dating a guy named Tadd, whose roommate/best friend Brad (yes, Tadd and Brad) is always hanging around them. At some point, the two guys proposition Tish for a threesome. Tish refuses, and later subverts this by telling them to "man up" and just admit the girl is unnecessary.


Literature[edit | hide]

  • Used straight in Shadow of the Lion.
  • In Without Reservation: Indigenous Erotica, an Eskimo shaman and all the other shamans concentrate their manliness in one place, unleashing Sedna's Spear Counterpart, Andes, who then makes love to her.
  • Lunar society in The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress is polyandrous due to a lack of women. Men refer to their wives' other husbands as simply "co-husbands" and are often brothers.

It’s OK to put us in a three-way

Music[edit | hide]

  • "3" by Britney Spears, with its bizarre suggestion of a threesome between Peter, Paul, and Mary.
    • The folksingers or the Biblical figures?
  • "The Golden Rule / 3-Way" by The Lonely Island (the girl in the scenario is Lady Gaga). Naturally, there's plenty of lampshading about how it's "not gay when it's in a three-way."
  • Marilyn Manson's "(s)AINT" video cuts right to the chase, with Manson engaging in an all male threesome with two crossdressing male hookers—portrayed by his ex-bandmate, Gidget Gein, and Eric Szmanda of CSI.
  • "Triad" by Jefferson Airplane.
  • The Go-Gos' cover version of the Jan and Dean song "Surf City" replaces the line "two girls for every boy" with "two boys for every girl".
  • "Two Guys (For Every Girl)" by Peaches.
  • Implied in "Mexico Road" by K.T. Oslin with the the line "I'm in the mood to meet some men". However she could also be referring to either two girl, one guy threesomes or full-blown orgies given the lines "We'll feel some muscles" and "We'll write the wrong phone numbers on their shirts", so Your Mileage May Vary.

Pornography[edit | hide]

  • Too many to count.
    • For some reason, predominantly male threesomes with one girl are more common in pornography than threesomes with only one man.
      • Logistics. Two men can penetrate one woman in several ways. However, two women and one man have trouble actively engaging without copious amount of oral sex. That is usually not what people tune in to watch.


Video Games[edit | hide]

  • In Dragon Age Origins, it is possible for a male player character to have a threesome with the pirate queen Isabela, and male party member Zevran (among other combinations; though, notably, Zevran is the only party member you can invite for a threesome with Isabela with whom you do not have to be romantically involved).


Western Animation[edit | hide]

  • A Cutaway Gag in Family Guy had Peter refer to that one time he was in a threesome and the girl never showed up.
