Of the numerous `threesome' books which appear to be crowding the market right now, this one is easily my favorite.

It doesn't have a lot of pretty four-color photos. (In fact, it doesn't have any.) But it does contain a lot of good, solid advice on how to make one's threesome musings a reality.

Fantasizing about threesomes is the very first topic, and the tome starts off with a few lurid tales to get one's juices flowing.

The first half of the book basically assumes that the desire is real (and valid) and proceeds to provide helpful tips on how to deal with the emotional side of having a threesome - such as how to communicate one's desires (to one's partner or `third wheel'), how to establish boundaries (ahead of time, hopefully), and how to deal with possible jealousies (all around) - to name but a few of the issues discussed.

It's not until the middle of the text, though - that the author deals with the "queerness" factor - by highlighting how a (two-girl) threesome can be a relatively safe and more comfortable means by which to fulfill our own same sex desires (which I found to be quite helpful, especially since most of the threesomes imagined by couples will be of the girl/girl/boy type, anyway).

It's in this `queerness' section where the author (a woman) also tosses out the initials, "L-I-T" - which stands for "Lesbian (only) in Threesomes" - which I thought was really cute (and reassuring).

There are some male and female anatomical diagrams as a refresher course; and a few pages encouraging women to go slow with each other, especially since our arousal takes more time (which is in definite contrast to situations involving two guys - where getting out of the starting blocks will typically be much quicker).

As someone who spends a lot of time reading and writing about sex, it's always such a treat to find a book like this amongst the rubble. Vicki not only gives heaps of enlightening information on the logistics, psychology and emotions surrounding the almighty threesome, but she does so as a great writer. After reading this I'd pretty much read anything she chose to write about. She is quite the talent (and anyone who names sexual positions such things as "Old Time Carriage Ride" and "Quilting Bee" is someone I want to know). A great read, informative and really hot. Threesomes can be tricky and this is the best book I've seen out there on how to successfully navigate the territory.

Anyone interested in having a threesome should read this book. Although you can find a lot of books about "how to" have a threesome, etc - this book has a vast amount of information regarding threesome relationships. It discusses the occasional sex threesomes, too, but exploring alternative relationships and how to have a successful committed long-term threesome is reviewed very well. I used a lot of the suggestions and it helped me process my own situation. Great read! The author's tone is fun and easy to read but very factual.

Great book to read for couples who want to enhance their love, marriage, and sexual lives. For me and my husband the sex is amazing. You have no idea what you are missing. A good threesome is like jumping out of a plane. It's so thrilling and the sex is never boring it like sex for the first time ever day. Having a threesome has been an enhancement for our marriage of 30 years. It help me overcome my shyness, insecurity in myself and jealousy. Realized jealousy is insecurity. Help me feel more secured as a woman. You don't have to be a Lesbian to enjoy a threesome. We share each other in a long term threesome and find our marriage becoming better from the experiences we have shared with others. The sharing does and will enhance/save a good marriage. It has for us after 30 years marriage together. When I think of your threesomes it gives me a big grin.

The book covers all kinds of threesomes not just the stereotypical male fantasy of FMF.

The author gives good guidelines for the right and wrong reasons for having a threesome and discusses the pros and cons of a threesome. Safe sex is discussed and there is a chapter on when/if your threesome becomes permanent but the focus is mainly on the committed couple looking for a hook-up and where to find your temporary third.

if you are actually interested in a more permanent arrangement then you may be better off reading something on polyamory.

Some of the places the author advises you to seek a third may seem a bit outlandish but based on my personal experience, she was right on.

Over all, this is a good book for someone thinking about a threesome for the first time.

I admit when I first saw the title of the book, I was a little intimidated by it. My only experience of threesomes has been the hollywood version. The author uses a great mixture of humor, honest exercises in self-exploration, and plain language. I would recommend if anyone is curious or wanting to explore different avenues within a committed relationship, this is the book!

A great read if you're interested in having a threesome. Even if you're already a pro at them this is a good book to keep you on track and remind you of some of the ground rules.

With laugh filled first hand accounts Vicki Vantoch leads you through the exciting world of sexual discovery and interesting new life styles. Not leaving anything out she details the good, and potential bad, sides of threesomes in a manner that is easily understood.

Definitely one of my favorite books, and I highly recommend it if you are even sort of kind of thinking about threesomes...even if you're not that into threesomes this book still has some good ground works for couples all on their own.

Definitely a five star, two thumbs up book.

And if we're lucky, maybe she'll write another one.
