My First Threesome viewers hooked as ‘hilarious’ show explores nation’s top fantasy

Viewers couldn’t believe their eyes as Channel 4 aired a racy documentary following people in search of their first threesome.

It saw five men and women pursuing their ultimate sexual experience – some with more success than others – after research revealed it as the nation’s top fantasy.

Programme makers said that in a new survey of adults under 50, two thirds said they would like to turn their threesome fantasy into reality – and one in four said lockdown had made them want to be more sexually adventurous.

While the show did explore serious issues around consent, relationships and sexuality, viewers couldn’t help but see the funny side.

Dave Lawton said on Twitter: “Just watched #MyFirstThreesome. Turns out it’s not a programme about maths for beginners.”

Leanne Thomas said: “The pitch for this show “How about we film random people going about having their first threesome?” Channel 4, why are you like this?”

Andyat83 said: “I hope they are sending these messages to the right people and NOT their parents Number…”

Pasta Mick said: “If I want to disappoint two people at the same time, I just update my parents on my life.”

And Leanne Thomas said: “My First Threesome was hilarious. The funniest thing was it trying to be like an art house documentary.”

Many viewers commented on the organisational skills of podcaster Kiera as she set about trying to arrange a threesome, including asking friends and a face-to-face meeting with a possible participant.

Plaingoldband said: “Kiera’s #MyFirstThreesome is more like planning world domination. Or the local fete”, while Daz added: “She should have negotiated the Brexit deal.”

And there were plenty who were just enjoying following the reaction to the show on Twitter, with London Money writing: “Just when you think you can’t stay awake any longer you clock a hashtag…”

Peteofthenorth said: “Favourite thing about shows like #myfirstthreesome is definitely the hashtag.”

Producers said they hoped the show would provide an “open and honest platform for discussions exploring sexuality, consent and boundaries” and “create healthy ways to bring fantasy to reality”.
