I have noticed a lot of open marriage chat and more people living out fantasies with a third person in the room, and the most bizarre is woman watching their man give oral to another man, is this some new phenomenon. I am very open minded, and could even find it quite a turn on, but would never consider actually doing a threesome. What is it that has affected couples so much, are people bored, or are there no limits anymore?

Dear wondering,

The exploration, experimentation and living of various relationship and sexual lifestyles have been around for many centuries and in the last number of decades have just been more openly spoken about, written about etc.

Globally and locally you are finding more and more people questioning and expanding their various inherited and socialised values, norms and principles. Many people are discovering and considering monogamy and heterosexuality to not be the only relationship possibilities.

Thus open marriages, ethical sluthood, polyamory, swinging to name but a few examples of alternative relationship lifestyles are more in the open and being explored.

This cannot be ascribed to only one reason, such as people being bored. There are on many levels an evolution and expansion happening in people's lives.
