What do men get out of a guy-guy-girl threesome?

A straight guy friend of mine recently expressed interest in a guy-guy-girl threesome. I've always been perplexed this. What do the guys get out of it? -What's In It For Me?

Um, hot sex with a game lady? More people to high-five afterward? A supplemental partner strong enough to help you achieve The Wheelbarrow?

Think outside your box, my friend. Regardless of the gender of the other person involved, the straight men still get to bang a hot chick. I know what you're thinking, and it's invariably a "Ghostbusters" joke about "not crossing the streams" because we all know where two naked penises in the same room lead: Browntown, USGAY. Never mind locker rooms, circle jerks, roommates, public bathrooms, frat houses, skinny dipping, and so forth.

Perhaps the most obvious answer is: because they can. Some people are in it for the thrill, the taboo, or simply to fulfill a fantasy for their partner, in the case of a coupled threesome. Ergonomically speaking, there's a lot more you can do with three people: more stimulation, more positions, and let's not forget the ever popular double penetration move, currently not possible with one man, unless he is bi-penal or using a dildo. There are also plenty of men out there who are turned on by the idea of their girlfriends/wives screwing other men.

Granted, some straight guys are bi-curious and want to test the waters from a relatively safe realm of heteronormativity. But mixed threesomes don't automatically imply bisexuality. Just ask half the girls I've hooked up with. I say it's about time MMF threesomes had their day in the sun. It's certainly a common fantasy among straight women, if the prevalence of slash fiction is any indication. I'm not even going to mention the threesome potential of the Twilight books. Today's empowered women are finally standing up and saying, "Yes! I want the shirtless werewolf and the sparkly vampire."

A friend of mine who had threesomes with another guy and a girl said, "It's basically just all about putting attention on the girl. The other guy knew I was bi, but I knew he wasn't and didn't want to do anything funky so I just didn't do anything with him."

Like most other sexual experiences that deviate from the norm (procreative, missionary, etc.), threesomes have the potential to teach us things about ourselves we may not have otherwise known. Maybe it's by watching how others perform, maybe it's learning new moves, maybe it's simply by witnessing a different dynamic than you're used to.

Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, and Andy Samberg agree.
