Does the idea of having a threesome thrill you and scare you at the same time? Perhaps 2022 is the year to overcome your fear and enjoying an experience of a lifetime. The following are some group activities to consider putting on your 2022 sex bucket list:

Try a Threesome

If you are in a relationship, talk to your partner about your desire to experience a threesome. Remember, there are all sorts of options. Think: Male/Female/Male (MFM), Male/Female/Female (MFF), FFF, MMM, and don’t forget your beautiful non-binary folks. Before getting started make sure you are on the same page. Set your rules. And then go have fun. Listen to the podcast Three Isn’t Always a Crowd podcast for tips and ideas!

Be a Unicorn

If you don’t have a partner, or you are in an open or poly relationship, try being someone’s unicorn! Join a couple looking for a play partner. Most of the dating sites have couples looking for a Unicorn like you! OKC tends to be the best site for finding this type of experience. What could feel better than two people doting on you for a night?

Try Swinging

If you are part of a couple who wants to have a sexual adventure with other couples, look into swinging. Swinging is sometimes called wife swapping, husband swapping, or partner swapping. It is a sexual activity in which both singles and partners in a committed relationship sexually engage with others for recreational purposes. Many cities have swingers meetup groups. There are also websites and apps like AdultFriendFinder that help couples find other couples.

Check Out a Sex Club

If you live in a city that has sex clubs, 2022 is the time to check one out. I know, it can sound scary at first, but you are likely to be surprised. Sex clubs typically have designated areas for play so that newbies can enjoy a drink, dancing, and maybe a little watching while they decide what they do or do not want to experience. Look into your local sex clubs. Read reviews and make sure they have rules in place that make you feel comfortable. If you are partnered, it makes a great bonding experience. It’s also a great way to meet others who may want to join you. If you are single, you just may get a chance to be a unicorn for a night.
