Yes, sex too-
There is the song about the Mormon wedding- three at once:

I saw three ships come sailing by,
Come sailing by, come sailing by;
I saw three ships come sailing by,
On New Year's Day in the morning.

And what do you think was in them then,
Was in them then, was in them then?
And what do you think was in them then,
On New Year's Day in the morning.

Three pretty girls were in them then,
Were in them then, were in them then;
Three pretty girls were in them then,
On New Year's Day in the morning.

And one could whistle, and one could sing,
And one could play the violin-
Such joy there was at my wedding,
On New Year's Day in the morning.

Often wondered if he survived taking care of all three on the wedding night.
Called a nursery rhyme in "Lavender's Blue" but obviously requires censorship.
