Why we should not always believe what we read about threesomes


English: Fargo Civic Center, Fargo, North Dako...

Almost every day, shortly after I sign into my WordPress account I will read the new articles under the keywords for my Reader. Under one of my keywords I see several articles with attention grabbing headlines about a threesome going tragically wrong and I thought there has to be more to the story than attention grabbing headlines? I was right, as I read them one thing became clearly each article was focusing one aspect of the story.

In my writings there are two areas that tend to be re-ocurring themes the first is having a threesome with a ‘clear head.’ Meaning having a threesome when you have been drinking or doing drugs can lead to problems. I believe these articles is a good of example of that.

Another area is how the media portrays threesomes by selecting the most salacious bits in order to get readers without presenting the whole story thereby leading to a biased view of threesomes. Below are two articles when read separately presents a very scary picture of having a threesome but when read together, I believe, presents a very different story.

First article, based on the below article, appears to neglect the fact the two met in prison. As a reader knowing they met in prison explains a lot of their behavior and if the article mentioned they met in prison it would suggest the stabbing had more to do with their past than a threesome going bad. Likewise this article , based on the above article, neglects both men were drinking. The fact they were drinking suggests the reason for the threesome going bad was in part being fueled by drinking when combined with both of them having a criminal past.

When both articles are read together a more complete picture develops. From my perspective, the reason for the threesome going wrong had more to do with their past and the fact they were drinking than with having a threesome. Nonetheless the story is a good reminder of the potential problems drinking or drugs can pose when combined with having a threesome. Along with reminding us that there is more to a threesome story than what is being reported or discussed.
