Friends with benefits is a myth created by lonely people who have no friends. If one is truly desperate for affection, benefits can be hired on any city street corner. So, where's the trust? If someone really needs another to talk to, there's always the Samaritans, or the speaking clock. And, if one is unfortunate enough to develop an arrangement with a friend, with benefits, what if they have a similar arrangement with someone else? There lies the danger. STDs, AIdS, Hepititis spring to mind. Best avoided in my opinion. True friendship is amazing. I would suggest that nobody in their right mind should suggest benefits with friends. It won't last. Nor will the friendship. A loving relationship is everything. But, friends with benefits? Don't be ridiculous!
