Reletionship between sex friends: satisfaction and frustration


Emma (Natalie Portman) and Adam (Ashton Kutcher) set out some ground rules in the film. Is that enough to guard against falling in love?
CS: No, but it reassures people. Fundamentally, feelings aren't created around presents, dinners or sweet nothings whispered in the ear.

It's through seeing someone and having sexual relations with them that a very strong attachment is created in the medium-term and therefore feelings develop.

The more two people make love, the more attached they get...

But if this developing love isn't shared, the frustration could be even more intense...
CS: Yes, it's a risk, especially as people tend to always want what they can't have. But even greater than the risk of frustration is the risk of suffering.

The only way to avoid it is to stop seeing each other, disappear from each other's lives and put an end to the relationship.
