Some erotic writers like to push the boundaries and this includes experimenting with different sex acts. While some authors enjoy talking about sex toys, others will simply use the body and experiment with hands and lips. But, as in real life, some people enjoy inviting someone into the bedroom to keep things hot and spicy. As an erotic author, you may get the clever idea of writing a sex scene or even a whole novel based on a threesome. While this may sound like a good idea in your head, you may realize that threesomes can be quite a challenge simply because of the logistics behind it all.

Of course, having a threesome in your book could turn things up a notch. It will challenge you in ways that you didn't see coming unless you have truly planned out the scene in detail. You may not have thought about the dynamics of a threesome, as you have to describe things in great detail.

There is more of everything

While a threesome may sound like a really good idea in your head, you have to think about how this is going to play out. Sure, you may have envisioned a woman walking up to the door, knocking on the door and being invited in, and there's a couple laying in bed waiting for her to join them, but once you start describing the sex act, you may have a hard time keeping track of all the extra hands and limbs that are now in place.

Think about it: you have three people laying in the same bed, six hands, six feet, three tongues, three sets of lips, six eyes, and everything else that's going on. Don't forget about the six nipples, possibly even six breasts, and three sets of genitals. You have to keep track of it all, so you can't simply write that someone is grabbing someone else's breasts.

Readers are going to be confused as to who he's grabbing and why. It can quickly turn into a game of Twister.

Do some research

Just like with any other scene, writing erotica and writing sex scenes will be a challenge if you've never done so before. It may be wise to do some research and simply read other people's description of threesomes.

You may learn a couple of tricks. One tip though – you don't need to talk about left and right hands or left and right legs when trying to describe the act.

Your novel will lose some steam if you keep talking about one person's left hand touching another person's right breast. You don't need to go into extreme detail as to who is situated where and why they're only touching the left side and not the right side. The reader is not thinking so much about left and right and the steam can go right out of an extremely erotic scene if you start thinking about the logistics of everything.
