This systematic study of sexual threesomes and of their attendant emotions, needs, and conflicts rests in twenty years of research and extensive interviews

From Publishers Weekly:

Karlen follows his classic Sexuality and Homosexuality with this report based on a 20-year study and interviews with approximately 200 people. Surprisingly uninhibited male and female respondents provide data on their sexual triads: two women erotically engaged with one man; less often, the reverse and other variations. Describing several sexual occasions with two men, a teacher explains that they're great for her, but, "to fulfill my husband, I really want to get him two ladies . . . "; an author delights in his "beautiful, three-way, live-in marriage." Readers will wonder at the lives of the children of parents who revel in threesome sexuality, yet the objective Karlen makes no judgments: he merely states that he is not sure that these youngsters are worse off than those in a traditional home. He adds, however, that very few of the interviewees would talk about their children. Controversial as it may be, the study is a significant contribution to the understanding of sexual behavior.

From Library Journal:

This book is probably the only one that is totally dedicated to sexual threesomes. Based on 50 interview subjects, 200 informants, and 150 swingers, Threesomes provides anecdotal descriptions of sexual threesomes. In addition to the anecdotal material, there is some discussion of antecedents to a desire for this type of sexual expression. The scant literature on this topic is reviewed and a bibliography is provided, as is an appendix with details on research method and data. For libraries with extensive collections of human sexuality.
