Threesomes & Group Sex Are the Biggest Sex Fantasy, Study Says

Regular visitors to Adult Empire’s bestselling DVD page will instantly recognize Threesome Fantasies Fulfilled. It’s been a presence on that list ever since it debuted in 2013, and is showing no signs of slowing down (as of this writing, it is ranked number nine). The movie’s consistent success might be regarded as an aberration, but if a new study from researchers at the Kinsey Institute is any indication, the popularity of the threesome fantasy goes well beyond the sales figures of a single porn DVD.

Writer and research fellow Justin Lehmiller surveyed 4,000 people about their sexy fantasies. After compiling the results, he discovered that one type of fantasy reigned supreme: threesomes/multi-partner sex. (Also highly ranked were “adventurous” sex, BDSM, and public sex, among others.) Interestingly, Lehmiller also found that fantasies about group sex increased as people got older. “When we’re younger and perhaps more insecure, our fantasies focus more on making us feel validated,” Lehmiller noted in a blog post about his research.  “By contrast, when we’re older and have settled into a long-term relationship, our fantasies focus more on breaking sexual routines and fulfilling unmet needs for novelty.”

We decided to delve deeper into the numbers to see if the multi-partner fixation on Adult Empire was reflected more widely in the our site’s current bestsellers. A quick tally of the primary genre of the current top 100 bestselling DVDs on AE shows that a full 21% come from group-sex genres like threesome, gangbang, and orgy. (Another 3% came from the hotwife and polyamory categories, which do not necessarily feature group sex in the traditional sense but still contain thematic commonalities.) The only other genre to come close to matching group sex was interracial, which accounted for more than 10% of the top 100 bestsellers. This fascinating fact, combined with the Kinsey Institute study, suggests that if you’re aiming to craft a porn movie that speaks to the fantasies of people everywhere, creating a scene featuring three or more performers is probably the best route!
