Who says it has to go tits up? Here’s why we love friends with benefits

We’re always being told that a Friends with benefits sitch will only end in tears for any girl who dares to try it. But who says women can’t get their kicks without getting attached? We think there are lots of reasons why you should embrace the FWB…

 

“You’ll ruin your friendship”; “You know it never works”; “You’ll end up having feelings for him”; are just some of the things us girls are told when considering entering in to a no strings sex arrangement.

Well, here at The S Word, we reckon casual sex can be bloody fantastic, for men and women. Let us explain why:

Hella loads of sex

FWB= frequent sex. Like, all the time. Whenever you want, without getting rejected. What could be better than that?

None of that feelings stuff

There’s no lovey dovey crap when it comes to a FWB arrangement. Just plain, no strings attached, sex. You won’t be getting cheesy messages about how he can’t imagine his life without you. Instead, he’s telling you he doesn’t want to picture his bed without you. The no-nonsense approach from a guy is what makes a FWB situ so hot.

Anxiety levels: 0

The second best thing about a FWB pact (after all the sex, obv) is the lack of anxiety. Forget the daily turmoil of whether you should text him first, because he hasn’t texted you. Gone are the days of ‘OMG he only put one x when he said goodnight, usually he puts three, does this mean he’s going to dump me? ‘

With your FWB, none of that stupid stuff matters, because neither of you care (in theory.) So put down your phone and enjoy living in the moment.

Practice makes perfect

You’ve got yourself a keeper (for the very, foreseeable future, at least), so now’s the perfect time for you to refine your bedroom skills, and learn some new moves. See this as practice time; preparation for wowing future baes with your incomparable bedroom skills.

No drama

Having a FWB means there’s no need for one night stands. And we all know what that means, no awkward morning afters, no hung-over strides of pride, and no trips to the GUM clinic to check you’re all clear after banging ‘Checked shirt guy.’

An FWB arrangement gets rid of all this drama, as your sex source comes to you, at convenient hours, and if he’s a good’un, bearing pizza. The dream.

So, whether it’s the sex on tap that appeals to you, or the fact that you get quality spooning time on top of the shagging, (evil genius over here), Friends with benefits can be straight up brilliant.

We say forget the negative Nancys and follow your heart vag, straight to your FWB.
