Phil and I watched an interesting TV show the other night, about two couples inviting a third into their relationship. (The stereotypical girl-girl-guy threesome.)
The first couple was extremely uncomfortable to watch, in a really creepy way. The guy was very controlling and deeply strange; watching him was like watching Charles Manson’s home videos. His girlfriend was a mouse, without much personality other than a desire to please. He was the one who set up the threesome, by chatting up girls on his own (!) and having them call and talk to her. It was disturbing to watch them; as she talked to the women, he watched her with a very aggressive look, as though he was ready to reach out and pop her one if she didn’t respond as he wanted her to. The woman they met with was not pretty, but had a very forceful personality. He obviously wasn’t prepared to let someone in that he couldn’t control, and he went off camera. The threesome never happened. (Afraid she might be a bad influence on his little mouse?) Very uncomfortable to watch.
The second couple were more interesting: youngish guy, girlfriend older than him by ten years. It was her desire to have a threesome. They found a young girl in a club immediately (she was obviously up for being on TV), and they made a date to meet in a hotel, complete with dress-up lingerie and sex toys. (Perhaps a little over-ambitious for the first time!) The woman felt all the normal things that you might feel: the threat to her relationship when the other girl put a hand on her boyfriend’s crotch, the realization of what it was going to be like to get naked next to a girl sixteen years younger than she. They did it, and evidently it was a good experience, but she did say that most people don’t realise how it is going to affect the relationship.
Interesting show. There is a lot of crap TV here, just like the States…but there is a fair porportion of thought-provoking TV as well. I’ll add to this later…got to leave for work.
Ok, at work. But first, a word from our sponsor this morning.
Anyway, back to the interesting threesome show. I’ve lost the deep and no doubt profound thought that led to initially writing this post this morning, but I just wanted to say that there is nude, and then there is naked. When you do something like this, everything gets exposed: not just your bodies and sexual skills, but your preconceptions and emotional baggage. It’s quite a revealing, if sometimes difficult, experience. I think that most relationships, which exist on a fairly fragile balance, couldn’t survive it.
So, ok…here’s the plan. We’ll all try it this weekend, and then compare notes. lol….
