Friends With Benefits or Fuck Buddies???

Friends with Benefits or Fuck Buddies?????

I would like to hear people's opinions as to wether or not Friends With Benefits means the same thing as Fuck Buddies or if there is a degree of difference between the two.

For example is a Fuck Buddy a booty call only arrangement with no other contact or concern for each other?

Is Friends With Benefits just a nicer way of describing Fuck Buddies or does it actually describe a friendship [primary relationship] with sex as a beneficial [secondary relationship] bonus between two people who are friends but who for whatever reason do not want a full relationship with each other?

Please give this topic some serious thought as I am interested as to whether there is a degree of difference or not?

Great question Mustang!!

I personally think that there is a different between a fuckbuddy and a friend with benefits relationship.

I think that you summed it up perfectly when you said that a fuckbuddy is a booty call. Other than sex, you dont really have any other contact.

However, with a friends with benefits senario, you get to have you cake and eat it too so to speak. You get the friend, whom in times of need can be great to help ease some tension as well as being someone whom you can go out with (ie, dinner, movies etc)and chat with, without the hassles of being in an actual relationship.

It is a great question.......well done mustang.

I think, like everything in this world, it all comes down to every persons interpretation...........but basically the bottom line is friends-with-benefits or fuck-buddies is a non-commitment relationship.
I've never thought of sex as an unwritten contract, and dont particularly like the expression.........but that's just me.

I think that the most important aspect when you contact a person, is that both parties communicate clearly their desires and what is expected........that way no one is going to get hurt or upset. It all comes down to communication before you actually meet each other, and before you waste each others time.

great question....the word fine line comes to mind... I do think f buddies implies just sex... bed time friends.. where as friends with benifits implies that there are movies ..outings...dinners long conversations...and sex...

Ladies thank you for your observations and comments. I am surprised that no blokes made any comments as to their opinions over the differences between Friends with Benefits and Fuck Buddies.

It is my opinion that Friends with Benefits is the far better situation as it is more nourishing for the soul, which is a lot of what sex is about.

FWB is what I had with the man I was seeing in Lebanon. I's far more rewarding to have sex with a friend (when you both know and accept you can have sex and stay just friends) that to just be someone's booty call.

Very true PK its when the parties have different agendas that the problems start and things go belly up.
