In the show, five women and five men from the UK share their experiences of their first threesome. The show aims to break taboos and create a healthy dialogue about sex and sexual fantasies.

The documentary says that threesomes are the nation's number one sexual fantasy. A survey carried out by programme makers revealed that two-thirds of adults would like to make their fantasy a reality, while 1 in 4 said lockdown had made them more sexually adventurous.

What’s more, statistics from Pornhub show that Britain is the sixth most likely nation to search for threeway porn - and it’s even more popular amongst women than men.

Laura, a 24-year-old receptionist from London, was among the participants. The documentary follows her to a sex club, where she hooks up with a woman and a male friend - an encounter she later describes as "amazing".

“To be honest, I didn’t realise a threesome was going to happen until I was actually in it," she told the camera.

"It ended up actually being with my friend and a woman that was part of a couple. It was spurred on from me and her, rather than a male influence, which is just not what I expected at all.”

The film also followed a young couple, Mart and Daisy, who were looking to "spice up" their sex life with a threesome. Daisy addressed her insecurities around the idea while the two browsed dating apps to find a suitable candidate, highlighting the need for consent and trust when it comes to threesomes.

“Sometimes I see great looking girls and we don’t swipe right,” she said. “I don’t really want to find someone that is 10/10.”

Participants were also shown casually texting their friends for a threesome - much to the audience's horror. Following the show, #MyFirstThreesome was trending as viewers took to Twitter to express their opinions.
