** In one of the last story arcs of the comic, Peggy proposes a threesome with two of her co-workers, Jane and Vince, who are both extremely attracted to her. However, the two are such PlatonicLifePartners that they are both {{Squick}}ed by the idea of merely seeing each other naked, much less doing anything sexual with each other. Peggy says it's either that or nothing, so they down sufficent LiquidCourage to make the experience bearable and reluctantly agree to it, since they both ''really'' want to sleep with her. When they get back to Peggy's house, she leaves to go get some "equipment" and leaves the two soused paramedics in her bedroom alone together. She's gone less than a minute, but by the time she comes back, the two of them have skipped from PlatonicLifePartners straight to passionate lovemaking and declaring their desire to move in with each other and have babies, and completely ignore Peggy, whose metaphorical boner is killed on the spot watching the spectacle.


** In "The Switch", George comes up with an idea on how to successfully pull off the titular switch, which refers to the act of breaking up with a girl in order to date her roommate instead, normally an ImpossibleTask. The man proposes a "ménage-à-trois" with the roommate to his girlfriend, who becomes disgusted and breaks up with him. She later complains to the roommate, who outwardly expresses sympathy but is secretly flattered she was included. The man then calls their home during a time he knows the roommate will be there but his now ex-girlfriend won't, flirts with the roommate, and asks her out. The original girlfriend is still disgusted and wants nothing to do with the man, so she tells the roommate that if she wants to date that sick pervert so badly she can have him. Problem is, when Jerry tries it, both women are into the idea, which freaks ''Jerry'' out enough for him to end the relationship.
-->'''Jerry:''' I can't! I'm not an orgy guy!\\

* ''Film/VirginTerritory'': Lorenzo is bathing when two nuns get in the tub with him and they have sex. Later on another pair come into his room for this too.


This trope is most commonly used as a form of basic {{Fanservice}}, and--due to MaleGaze and MostWritersAreMale reasons--the third person in this scenario is usually a woman, and the important in-focus character is usually a man. Who these women are or why they're willing to get into a threesome is rarely considered important information. Oftentimes, both women won't even have NominalImportance, and will exist entirely to show off how manly the guy is for having a threesome. This aspect of the trope is shown in one recurring aspect of the sex act--it will sometimes start out with [[GirlOnGirlIsHot the two women making out for an extended period of time]] before eventually "inviting" the man to join in, conveniently shortly before we FadeToBlack. Naturally, this form is very common in pornography. [[note]]All except the "fading to black" part.[[/note]]

As a narrative tool, most dramatic tension is built in the lead-up to the act, with characters discussing how or why they want to do it. It can also be used to develop sexual tension during the act by having the male character do it with his girlfriend and a third party, only to discover he kind of likes the third party ''more''. Some audience members will be annoyed that his getting too much sex is supposed to count as a "problem". One common variation that turns the trope into a joke involves a man's girlfriend suggesting to him that they do a three-way, and he quickly and eagerly accepts, only to discover at the last minute that the third party is a dude. This puts him in the [[HilarityEnsues hilarious]] situation of either having a GayMoment, or admit that he was being [[{{hypocrite}} hypocritical]] in only wanting three-way-sex when it fulfilled ''his'' fantasy.

* One of the [[BestKnownForTheFanservice selling points]] of ''Film/WildThings'' was a threesome between Neve Campbell, Denise Richards and Matt Dillon. (The others were GirlOnGirlIsHot and a surprisingly [[GambitRoulette complex plot]].)
* The climax (heh) of the Mexican film ''Film/YTuMamaTambien'' features such a scene between the female lead Luisa and the two male leads, Julio and Tenoch. It's actually important for the film's story, as it exposes the underlying attraction between both boys. At first, Julio and Tenoch focus their attentions on the incredibly lovely Luisa, but as she kneels to the ground to pleasure them both, the camera focuses on Julio and Tennoch as they begin to passionately kiss. Notably, the threesome ends the friendship between both boys, as they can only manage an awkward silence after waking up next to each other and never speak to each other again, except for a chance meeting months later.

* The most important Three Way Sex scene in history came in 1966 film ''Film/{{Blowup}}''. Thomas the hip London fashion photographer has sex with two would-be models. Even though the film used a SexyDiscretionShot cutaway after the clothes came off, the nudity cost the film any chance at approval under UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode. In response, Creator/MetroGoldwynMayer released the film anyway, and the Hays Code became a thing of the past, soon replaced by the MPAA rating system.

** Eric's girlfriend's best friend suggests they all do it. Her motivations are treated as suspect, and are the first thing Eric brings up with his (male) friends. They conclude that what she ''really'' wants is to have sex with Eric's girlfriend, and Eric being around is just a plausible excuse for her to suggest it. Though not considering this in itself to be a dealbreaker, Eric ultimately decides against the proposal. But when he offhandedly mentions to his girlfriend that he "didn't think you'd be into it", she insists that they ''do'' do it, apparently interpreting Eric's statement as some sort of remark on her not being adventurous enough.
