Sex friends: how to make casual sex relationships work


Does having a "bed buddy" mean you get all the advantages of a relationship without the disadvantages?
CS : No, I actually think it's the opposite! You get the downsides of sex without the upsides.

During the entire "relationship", you actively avoid the relationship and you avoid getting involved with the other person on a human level, meaning you miss out on some potentially pleasant moments.... because there's more than just sex.

Having a "bed buddy" can also prevent new, more genuine relationships from blossoming.

Sex friends are a fantasy involving sexual urges without feelings or commitment. In reality, these relationships are impossible to maintain.

Is there a manual for the perfect "sex friend" arrangement?

CS: (Laughs) No, I don't think there's a manual... it's not as easy as that! For it to work, sexual relations should be occasional, once every three months perhaps. And they shouldn't last too long to prevent attachment.

But if this is the case and if regular sex is what you're after, one sex friend won't be enough, you'll need three or four, or more!
