Partridge presents a definition for "sandwich" encompassing a wide
variety of possible acts and configurations.

Year: 2013
Title: The New Partridge Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English
Edition: Second

[Begin excerpt]
sandwich noun
1 sex involving more than two people, the specific nature of which
varies with use, usually sex between one woman and two men . . .
[End excerpt]

The first sandwich citation in Partridge is male-male-male in 1971
instead of male-female-male.

Here is a precursor in 1908 with the phrase "sandwich fashion" used
within the description of a female-male-female encounter.

Year: 1908
Title: The Way of a Man with a Maid
Author:  Unknown
Volume 2, Chapter 3

[Begin excerpt]
The sensation of thus feeling at the same time these two full, fat,
fleshy, warm and throbbing cunts between which my hand lay in sandwich
fashion was something exquisite; and it was with the greatest
reluctance that I removed it from the sweetest position it is ever
likely to find herself in . . .
