Topic: Friends with Benefits ???

Jup Jeremy: Tell us how you feel about this. It kind of freaks me out. I might be old-fashioned but I think if you break up and fall out of love then you should stop the sex too. ???

Sherri: I guess that's sort of at the discretion of the couple. I mean some people are better at emotional detachment and can separate their feelings from sex. These are the people that can just do the sex for the hell of it and have it not mean anything. Other people tho have trouble leaving their emotions out so this isn't the best idea for everyone.

Becky: Hey Jeremy, I agree with you on that one. I've done the friends w/ benefits thing and it's been my experience that in more cases than not, you lose your friend and therefore lose your benefits. But some people swear by it. Maybe I'm just picking the wrong friends???

Ashley: I never could understand the whole friends with benifits thing! If there isn't a relationship you aint getting any sorry. I am not up for that at all.

Michelle: Sadly, "friends with benefits" doesn't work. Someone will always be wanting more, even if they say they don't, and get hurt. It's kind of like slow torture with someone you know...not very nice.

Keri: Personally, i think relationships are a waste of time because someone always gets hurt. In my mind, friends w/ benifits are the way to go. Its always worked out really well for me

Andrea: In a relationship I like to take a friends w/benefits side because that is all I've ever really experienced. And to tell you the truth that's how I want it to stay until I am ready to get married.

Kevin: I've never really done the whole "friends with benefits" deal, I guess mainly because all of my experiences usually turned into relationships. I agree, that in most cases, it won't work out; one person or the other is going to get more attached than just wanting to have sex, and usually the other person won't want the same in the long run, so someone will end up getting hurt out of the whole mess.

I don't really agree that "friends with benefits" is necessarily the way to go, at least not for everyone, that's for sure! If I'm having sex with someone, or should I say "making love to someone", then I would prefer that we be in a relationship together, because honestly, I think it's quite slutty and morally wrong to just go around and sleep with people who you aren't emotionally attached to in some way or another! That's just my opinion.

Am I saying that I couldn't do it,well, no, not really. Sure,I could do it..It's a matter of whether or not I choose to, and I probably wouldn't
