[[AThreesomeIsHot Threesomes with two girls are hot.]] Threesomes with two guys are [[ManlyGay manly]]. Note this is [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial ''not'' gay]], and [[SarcasmMode no heterosexual male will see it as such]] unless a guy [[ForegoneConclusion penetrates another guy]] [[MemeticMutation or the balls touch]]. If the two guys are related, it's [[InsaneTrollLogic also not incestuous]].

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

!!Examples:

[[folder:Fanfic]]

* ''YTuMamaTambien''. This is all you need to know about ''YTuMamaTambien''.
** Naturally, [[spoiler:the threesome leads to plain man-on-man sex]]. The whole scene comes across as [[spoiler: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 ''ChasingAmy'' to calm a quarrel between his girlfriend and his roommate. [[spoiler:As a result, the girlfriend dumps him and the roommate moves out.]]
** Kevin Smith must like the idea of this. In ''Clerks 2'', Randall thinks Dante's fiance wants to have a threesome with them.
* 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 [[TheBeard the girl]] is unnecessary.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:LiveActionTelevision]]
* Proposed by [[FairCop Habib]] in one episode of ''TheThinBlueLine'' to resolve a romantic triangle. One man was [[StraightGay uninterested and uncomfortable]], and the other [[CloudCuckooLander completely missed her point]].

* ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'': A game of Living Scenery ends with four men on top of each other. For BonusPoints, one of them is [[TransparentCloset Richard Simmons.]]
* ''{{Scrubs}}'' also refers to this as a "Devil's Threesome", and compares it to the "good kind" (ie: two girls, one guy), which is in turn topped only by the reveal of the "all-girl" variety.
** Amusingly, the porn parody of ''Scrubs'' culminates in a threesome between J.D., Elliott and The Todd.
* Undertaken in a first season episode of ''{{Californication}}'' with Hank, Charlie, and the GirlOfTheWeek after some reluctance on Hank's part (Girl would only have sex with Charlie if Hank was involved.) The results were somewhat...messy.
* In one episode of ''Grey's Anatomy'', Meredith dreams of having a threesome with Finn and Derek.
* ''SaturdayNightLive'': [[http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/digital-short-3-way-the-golden-rule/1329178/ 3-Way (The Golden Rule)]]

* ''DesperateHousewives'': Dave, Katherine and Mike go camping in "The Story of Lucy and Jesse".
* Averted in ''FlightOfTheConchords'', when a girl asks Brett for a threesome. He assumes she's talking about him, her, and her female friend, and is totally on board. But then she asks Jemaine, they both figure out what she's talking about and quietly leave, very uncomfortable.
** Played straighter, albeit for laughs, in the song "If You're Into It", wherein Brett proposes to his girlfriend a threesome between the two of them and her roommate, Stu.
-->How 'bout you and two dudes?\\
Him, you, and Stu, in the nude?

* "3" by BritneySpears, with its bizarre suggestion of a threesome between Peter, Paul, and Mary.
* "The Golden Rule / 3-Way" by ''TheLonelyIsland'' (the girl in the scenario is ''Music/LadyGaga''). Naturally, there's plenty of lampshading about how it's "not gay when it's in a three-way."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pornography]]
* Too many to count.
** For some reason, predominantly male threesomes with one girl are more common in pornography than threesomes with only one man.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In ''DragonAgeOrigins'', it is possible for a male Warden 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).
** In ''DragonAge II'', Isabela can be recruited into the party, and [[spoiler:if Zevran was alive at the end of the Origins playthrough used, he can show up and a redux can occur if the Champion, male or female, is involved with Isabela]].

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* A CutawayGag in ''FamilyGuy'' had Peter refer to that one time he was in a threesome and the girl never showed up.

** The folksingers or the Biblical figures?
*** Presumably the Biblical figures since it references: Living in sin is the new thing.



*** 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.
