Wall Street Journal Features Instagram Influencer in a ‘Throuple’

On Dec. 12, Emma Tucker was named editor-in-chief of the Wall Street Journal. In less than a month, Tucker seems to have already mixed things up for the publication known for its comprehensive financial coverage and conservative-leaning editorial board.

On Monday morning, the Journal published an interview under the headline “How Instagram’s Favorite Therapist Makes Her Throuple Relationship Work.”

The woman, Nicolas LePera, is a psychologist who authors self-help books and posts quotes on Instagram that seemingly mean nothing but garner hundreds of thousands of likes. Ellen Gamerman, the Wall Street Journal reporter conducting the interview, sums up the theme of LePera’s work thusly: “People would feel a lot happier if they learned to tap into their authentic selves.”

For LePera, that means being in a “throuple” with two other women, a development she announced on Instagram in 2021.

“We have been together ‘officially’ for the past 4 months and it’s expanded me spiritually, emotionally, and mentally,” she said at the time. “It’s been raw. Terrifying. Filled with joy. Filled with tears. Filled with laughs. Filled with so much humbling learning about myself and what it is to be in authentic relationship.”

Most of the interview with the Journal is spent talking about this woman’s throuple relationship — “Do all three of you wake up together in the morning?”, “What is your morning routine?”, “Do you eat breakfast?”, “Can any lessons from your throuple experience apply to monogamous couples?”, “What are the challenges of a three-woman relationship?”, “How do you find a bed that fits you all?”, “Who sleeps in the middle?” — and how it helps her to be her “authentic self.”

LePera explained that with two women, she doesn’t have to “force them into a box to fit this idea of partner.” Instead, she can “express different parts of myself in each relationship.”

“If we all allow each person to be as they are,” she said, “to self-express in their unique ways, we can really expand ourselves.”

The Wall Street Journal also thought it would be of interest to its readers that the Instagram influencer’s “morning routine” consists of waking up between 5 and 6 a.m., journaling with coffee, reading spiritual books, doing yoga, and going back and forth between a sauna and a cold plunge.

Is the Journal the new BuzzFeed? Or is a “throuple” now just mainstream?
