In a three-way, the member who is the only participant of their gender is the hypotenuse. SUch a term is used because in a right triangle, the side that's across from the right angle is referred to as the hypotenuse. It is the unique side of the triangle, just as the only member of their given gender in a three-way is unique in that situation.
Person 1: "Dude, you'll never believe it. I was in a three-way last night. And I got to be the hypotenuse!"

Person 2: "Lucky. I've never even been in a three-way."
