Why have sex with one person when you can have sex with two people at the same time? Hollywood understands this, and we appreciate them for that.
We’ve rounded up the absolute sexiest threesome moments in TV and movies…and maybe a few of the weirdest threesomes, too. In fact, on-screen threesomes tend to get pretty weird (especially when a Catholic priest is involved, but we’ll get to that). These are the group hookups we didn’t see coming, and the ones we’ll never forget.
Turns out, road trips lead to A LOT of threesomes; who knew? Nothing gets a group of travelers horny like being cooped up in a car, apparently. And then of course there is the pool, a popular locale for threeways.
As far as the participants, everyone from politicians to parents to complete and total psychos all like to get in on the action. Who can blame them? We’re not judging, we’re watching with eyes wide open.
Actors such as James Franco, Blake Lively, Orlando Bloom, and Kristen Stewart have gotten it on in groups on-screen. Check it out for yourself, because, as goddess Britney Spears once cooed in her jam “3”, “Three is a charm, two is not the same. I don’t see them harm, so are you game?”
Isn’t the alternative title to Wild Things “That Threesome Movie”? It may as well be. This movie has earned it’s reputation as one of the sexiest movies of the ’90s and beyond. When you hear Matt Dillon, Denise Richards and Neve Campbell are enjoying each other’s company, even mild curiosity might drive you to see what all the fuss is about.
'Y Tu Mamá También'
Oohwee does this one get steamy! After spending so much time together road tripping in a car, it was inevitable that these three would go on to explore each other’s bodies together. Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna and Maribel Verdu partake in a scene that will have you fanning yourself off.
Megan invites another woman to bed with her and Don thinking that it would make everything in their relationship all better. What a surprise, that’s not the way it turned out!
James Franco, Ashley Benson, and Vanessa Hudgens could stand in a lineup and it would be sexy. But the fact that the three of them get it on in a pool in the bonkers Spring Breakers? You’ll feel like you need a dip in a pool to cool off after watching this one.
Some people think there’s a lot going on during a threesome, but not Patrick Bateman. He can juggle two women and still have time to check out his massive biceps in the mirror. Those must be some fantastic arm muscles if he’s finding them more entertaining than the various positions these women are contorting themselves into right in front of him.
'House of Cards'
It’s the oldest trick in the book: cleaning a hand wound leads to a threesome! Well, at least on House of Cards it does. Maybe it’s the music, but this scene really walks the line between sexy and creepy. And hey, it’s not often you see this much emotion from a Secret Service agent.
In this case, the music makes the scene even sexier, and that’s hard to do considering the hotness of the actors. Blake Lively, Taylor Kitsch, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson bong some magical drug that makes them want to bone each other under a sky of shining stars.
When Joe Swanberg’s anthology series Easy hit Netflix last fall, this threesome scene between Malin Ackerman, Kate Micucci, and Orlando Bloom had everyone talking (and blushing). Sadly it hits a rather unsexy speed bump as a baby with no chill keeps interrupting the fun.
'On The Road'
Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, and Kristen Stewart get very comfortable with each other as they travel across the country in the 2012 film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s 1957 novel. It was a bit scandalous at the time, as Stewart was just wrapping up her Twilight career (unfortunately no vampire/human/werewolf threesome in those movies).
'The Young Pope'
In the sixth episode of The Young Pope, Cardinal Dussolier throws himself quite a goodbye party before leaving Honduras, which consists of a super steamy threesome. The fact that all the humping is cut between shots of a Catholic mass just makes it kinda hard to get in the mood though.
