When Barbie Goes Bad 

Mistress Maeve

Published October 10, 2007 at 5:59 p.m.

Dear Mistress Maeve,

I've been close friends with "Ken" for eight years. Our friendship has been flirtatious at times, but we've never shared more than a drunken New Year's Eve kiss. About two years ago, Ken started dating "Barbie," and things heated up between the three of us. When we go out, all three of us are flirtatious with one another (I'm bisexual, and so is Barbie). I've made out with Barbie in front of Ken occasionally, but I've always avoided going home with them for fear of ruining my friendship with them both.

Here comes the twist. Next week, Ken and Barbie are moving six hours away. They're having a big going-away party, and I feel like they might ask me to have sex with them as the ultimate send-off. I'm sure the sex would be amazing, as we're all kinky and open-minded, but I have this nagging feeling that it would be a mistake. Advice?

Thanks, Skipper

Dear Skipper,

Before you get all "dolled up" for the big going-away party, you have some thinking to do.

I'm all for hot threesomes, but here's the bottom line: If you have a "nagging feeling" telling you to resist this three-way, follow your instinct. When done correctly, arranging group sexual activities takes communication and rule making, especially when friendships are involved. However, even with the proper planning, your best precaution is to listen to your gut - if it doesn't feel right, don't do it.

You make it sound like this is your last chance for fun with Ken and Barbie. Just because they're moving six hours away doesn't mean you'll stop being friends, and it certainly doesn't mean that you'll escape any tension that may arise from your romp in the Barbie Dream House.

Who knows -if you let things unfold over time, the three of you could be a match made in Mattel.
