Dear Miss Emily:

My friend and I have been best friends since we were young and, now, she has a serious boyfriend, and I do not. Well, the situation of a threesome has come into question, recently. Since there is no man in my life, I’m open for the situation (I’m “needy”).  My friend’s boyfriend is also okay with the situation (of course, he’s a guy), but my friend isn’t so sure, and I can understand her concerns. I would just wondering what you think about this situation, and if it’s a good idea or not.  Keep in mind this wouldn’t be either of our first times.

Dear Three’s:

Whether it's the first time or not, I’d take a pass on this one.  Why?  He is a serious boyfriend, and she has reservations.  I get the fact that he’s open to this, since 9 out of 10 guys would jump in even if there were a chance they’d break both legs!  But think about it:  She ends up falling in love with him but, once you’ve opened up the door, he keeps needling her for a standing date on this "really cool" activity -- or, he whispers to you in the kitchen, while she's on the phone, "Hey, can we get together alone, sometime?"  I think, if you’re going to indulge in this type of romp, it should be with non-committed parties.  A roll in the hay, to abate the fire that burns in your "needy" hungry loins, is not worth losing your childhood friend.  Right?
