Gay 'thruple' reveal how they manage their unusual relationship
Three gay men, who live together as a 'thruple' have spoken about how their unusual relationship works.
Londoners David, 54, and Louis, 47, have spoken extensively to GayStarNews about how they wlecomed 28-year-old Sam into their relationship after meeting at a bar - at first for a three month trial period, then for six months, and now, for good.
"It was very messy," Louis says of the early days. "There’s a lot of jealousy and a lot of having to adjust. Everyone’s looking out to see if they’re missing out on attention or affection. There were a lot of arguments in the early days. It was a bit of a mind-fuck!"

"We both had to work out our relationships with Sam," David adds. "Testing each others boundaries, working out someone’s limits, it’s all part of being in a new relationship with someone, but it’s more intense and complicated when there are three of you."
He also offered advice for anyone else thinking of entering into a three way relationship. "Talk about everything," he says. "If something is on your mind, bring it up."
