Outrage in Republic of Ireland at state-sponsored threesome sex tips for teenagers

A state-funded charity in the Republic of Ireland is advising teenagers on how threesomes can 'spice up' their relationships.

Spunout.ie, the youth organisation that runs the website, receives €124,000 each year from the Health Services Executive (HSE).

The charity website describes how threesomes can "inject serious passion into their bedroom shenanigans".

Teenagers are told not to pick anyone they have feelings for and instead opt for no-strings-attached sex. "If you are in a relationship, but secretly have a thing for someone else, bringing them into a threesome could lead to serious hurt, so it's best to save threesomes for a bit of fun."

Calling the advice "incredibly regressive", Fine Gael TD Michelle Mulherin said that she will be raising the issue with the Republic's minister for health James Reilly.

"That this has been given the state seal of approval is very worrying. There is nothing right about this."

Ian Power, a spokesperson for the organisation, said: "The fact is that sex is enjoyable for young people and for some people threesomes are just one aspect of being sexually intimate.

"We are not promoting it, we are just saying that these are the reasons why you might and might not."
