What’s your take on friends with benefits? Can it work? Is it possible? Or is it all a mirage like that vending machine in the desert?

Can it work? Sure. Is it possible? Yes. It is ENTIRELY possible to reap the benefits of a close friendship by taking things to the next level. Let’s take a look at what some of those benefits are:

Sex. Yes, sex! On a perfect, cloudless night, when the moon is full and so are your wine glasses, you can consummate your once platonic friendship, making gray area out of what was once clear. Get it on! If you’re both single, interested, and horny, there’s no reason not to give in to to your most basic of instincts. You better hope it’s the best, most mindblowing sex you’ve ever had, because it’ll come with-

Confusion. Yeah! You’re hanging out, you’re making out, you’re seeing other people, you’re going on dates, you’re doing weird things, you’re not sure what’s going on, but you know it’s sex, and you know it’s weird, and sex cancels out weird, right? Right? I mean, it’s free sex! And you guys are totally cool with each other! What a casual, fun thing for two friends to do with each others’ junk! How magical! This couldn’t possibly lead to-

Resentment. So… wait, you want to bone, but you don’t want to date, but you’re my best friend and we ALREADY like each other, but you don’t want to be with me? Why wouldn’t I like that arrangement? It’s actually perfect for me, because it reminds me that I don’t have any other options, and it also reminds me that you like me enough to fuck on a regular basis, but not enough to hold hands in public and not enough to NOT try to sleep with other people in front of me. Cool… cool. This is great. Totally fine, there’s no-

Weirdness. Lots of weirdness. Good luck, you horny jerks. It better be worth it.
