What you need to know be­fore a three­some

Glamour (South Africa) - - Glamour Sex -

“The more you think it through and dis­cuss it be­fore the act, the more likely ev­ery­one will have a good time,” says Dr Emily Morse, sex ex­pert and host of the pod­cast Sex With Emily. Here are four ques­tions she wants you to ask:

1Why do I want this? You should only have a three­some if it’s some­thing that gen­uinely ex­cites you. You may find you like imag­in­ing a three­some, but clam up when it comes to plan­ning one.

2How will we com­mu­ni­cate if one of us is done? In the mo­ment, it can be hard to suss out feel­ings. Hav­ing a code word or phrase that ends the ac­tion en­sures no mis­un­der­stand­ings.

3What’s your sta­tus/sex­ual health his­tory? Mak­ing sure ev­ery­one is safe (and pro­tec­tion is used) is a must.

4What are you most look­ing for­ward to/are most ner­vous about? Talk­ing through what you like – and what you don’t – be­fore any clothes come off en­sures that ev­ery­one is on the same page.
