    Blush Stuck on a word NEED HELP!

    I'm currently working on Magikano chapter 12
    And I have hit a snag, in page 80 of Magikano vol.3, a lady approached Haruo telling him rumors about the young pastry chef that Chiaki is meeting secretly.
    One of the things she mentioned is "三股" (read as MIMATA) I already looked it up at Google, but all I keep getting is "three pronged fork" which is "sanmata" not "mimata"
    Can anybody help me with this? The conversation of the whole page is pasted below for reference:

    Lady 王子って女の子すぐにポイ捨てするからねえ~~~~
    Lady つねに三股くらいかけてるみたいだし
    Lady ハアー 顔はいいんだけどねえ
    Lady それにあのウワサ。。「女体ヂコレーションケーキ」? 強要するってさ!
    Lady しばったうえになめまわすらしいよー
    Lady あんなカワイイ子が花を散らすなんてね~~~
    Maika ?お兄ちゃん?
    Haruo ボ... ボクが
    Haruo 一番 恐れていたことが!!

    I am already familiar with "女体" or "nyotaimori" the famous female body dish, but I'm wondering is "mimata" (三股) also a food fetish of some sort?

    PLEASE HELP!

    suteru is to discard. context is important with translation, since without context, it doesn't really mean anything. You know it's related to a relationship if the conversation has been about dating.
