A real-life "throuple"

Here’s an amazing article on life in a “real-life throuple” – Benny Morecock, of Cockyboys fame, and his two live-in boyfriends, Jason and Adrian*. (link below)

It tells of how an existing couple met and introduced a third man into their nine-year relationship, not too unlike how my characters Simon and Adam accepted newcommer Wil into their lives.

I almost wish this article had been released while I was writing Three’s Company, but unfortunately it was only released in nymag.com after I’d subbed it.  Not that it would have changed the story in any way, but it would have reinforced in my mind that what my three boys were going through was not only possible, but very real.

This article tells how these three men live together, and how the dynamics work, from how needs are met to sleeping arrangements.

It’s a no holds barred look into a “throuple” as they call it, or a loving, polygamous relationship.

I know there’s a stigma attached to poly relationships, but I thought this article was really appropriate for my story, Three’s Company.  I would love for you to check out this amazing look into an amazing kind of love, by clicking on the link below.

    Awesome, thank you for posting this link! I'm currently writing the sequel to Beyond the Edge, called The Cross and the Trinity, and involves an established couple bringing a third man in. This will be invaluable for me to read 🙂
