FWB is great, because you don't have to deal with girl's emotional crap! It's best to just hook up, have fun, and on to the next.

True, there's no emotional involvement, but there's other kinds of potential hazards to hooking up with someone you don't know, such as acquiring a sexually transmittable infection, like herpes. Lots of STDs don't show symptoms for quite some time. Keep an eye on your sexual health by getting tested. www.getstdtested.com

I'll bet Jennifer Nicholas was one of those "sexually emancipated" women that wanted to be treated as "one of the fellas" and never believed she would contract any STD's. Hard lesson learned...

It works I guess but jealousy happens quite a lot when one of the people get bf/gf and cut the other one off. When something is there for when you want it and then is taken away. It just leaves you wanting it.

Of course not everyone gets jealous when that happens but of course plenty do.

Bullshit... FWB doesn't need to be dangerous. No more dangerous than married to a cheater like a quarter of married people. Wear a condom and know your friend. WTF! Wake up...

Condoms don't cover up everything and are no guarantee. Stay away from promiscuous, irresponsible people.
