Sockets having identical port number

Hi I have a question about sockets. I read that each socket is uniquely identified by both an ip number and a port number. But I have a program that creates multiple sockets with IDENTICAL ip address and port number, and the multiple sockets run fine. Can someone help me understand what is really going on? Thanks.
