Sure, maybe if you're 25...but if you're 45 with a wife and kids it becomes tiresome and annoying to think with your dick 24/7, so at that point you can establish perfectly good friendships with women but Ann in HR is bent over the copier and dear LORD what I wouldn't give to wreck that for twelve or thirteen seconds.

The majority of my friends are guys. We've known each other going on 23 now, all met as pre-teens. And as I do realize that each and every one of them at some point during that 23 years has wanted something more, it never happened; and everyone... you know, grew up. Since we did grow up together and became adults together we're all family. That same thought they had as teenagers would revolt them as incestuous now.


It would be a real touching display of long term friendship if you just blew them all. no honey they still think of you as a piece of ass ,but they like you too, and so they eased up off that ass grab all those years ago.Go ahead and give the  treat. a bit of their long lost youth back.

miss diminutive: Insaniteus: This study proved zilch other than the fact that men ADMIT to more on surveys.  My best chick friend has a tendency to deny up one side and down the other that she has any interest in Guy X, right up until she's single and seeking him out, at which point she'll go on and on about how she's been wanting to be with him since they first met.

Women are just more used to hiding their true intentions.  We need a study like this that actually measures arousal levels in the brain to see if women truly are so different from men in this regard.

I don't think we're all that different, really. I think the main difference I've noticed is that women (myself included) simply won't put up with being in the "friend zone" for as long men will. If I'm interested in a guy and we become friends I eventually move on and set my sights on someone else if things don't progress after a certain amount of time. On the other hand, I know guys who'll be friends with a woman they want for years and years even though it's been made pretty clear that she has no interest in pursuing a romantic relationship.

I like how women say men "grew up" when they stopped wanting sex out of a relationship. Because wanting sex is such a childish thing, and not wanting sex is so adult.

I don't understand the "it would be having sex with my sister" line. She was, at one point, either farkable or not farkable. I've had girl space friends for years who still fall into those categories, and barring any major changes in appearance (weight gain or weight loss, primarily) they tend to stay in the same category they were in the beginning. Sure, there are many other reasons not to do it - like the guy above ripping a hole in the space-time continuum and ending countless innocent lives - but the "Yeah, I'd fark you" thought never really goes away.

Well, here's the thing -- either the women are unattractive, in which case I wouldn't want to have sex with them, or they're attractive, in which case they wouldn't want to have sex with me.  That makes it quite easy to just have friendly relationships with women without any threat of sexual tension.

You can be the noblest, most decent guy in the world, delightedly married, and nevertheless at some point you're going to have a friend who is a) female and b) a genetic lottery winner. There will be an impulse, even if it's only a moment where the little devil on your left shoulder says "dayummmmmmmm...". You might never act on the impulse, even if an opportunity arose to act on it, because the risk/reward ratio is no good for you.  But that doesn't mean the impulse got switched off in you.

One of my female friends is one of the most thoroughly decent people I've ever known. But she's also staggeringly hot. Imagine, if you will, Fred Rogers in Kate Upton's body. It is disconcerting as hell to speak with her. You try having an adult conversation when the monkey part of your brain is making Tex Avery faces.

Thankfully she only uses her powers for good and not evil.

Meh.  ALL face to face social interactions are influenced by the attractiveness of people you are interacting with.  No one has transcended hardwired human psychology   Especially not the inevitable few who pretend they have.

That goes for men and women.  And not just friendships.  It could be the way the checkout person (male or female) that you (male or female) have never met and will never see again treats you.   Smiling and being friendly chatty with the attractive customer, acting curt and businesslike with the unattractive customer.

So..... let me guess.  A thread full of one part men who can be friends with someone they would be willing to have sex with, one part people very angry that men can be friends with someone they would be willing to have sex with, one part people pretending that they are above all this and have transcended the bestial evolutionary drives that lesser people have, one part women pretending to not realize that men want to have sex (even though they too want to have sex), one part men acting confused that there are women who don't want to have sex with them, and one part men hoping that if they act like white knights it will get them sex.

I'm curious, are you married or in a long term relationship with another woman? My friends and I were discussing this very scenario the other day and some of them said straight up that they wouldn't date a man who's best friend is a woman.
I thought that was pretty extreme, especially since many of them are hypocritically best friends with other guys (who, according to this article at least, probably want to bone them).


So, back in college, I become friends with this girl. And in the usual wackiness of college friend sharing, a guy friend of mine starts dating one of her girl friends. It was known at time that she had been a rape victim at some point.

Anyway, one day at some point he tells me that, "We had sex this weekend. It was was sort of awkward building up to it after a few months because of the rape thing, but we worked it out be with her trusting me and so forth..." And so on. I didn't think much of it afterwards.

A few days later, my friend comes running up to me all giddy, "OH have I got news to tell you! You'll never believe what happened! you can't tell anyone I told you, because I promised to keep it a secret." And she informs me that X and Y had sex.

Boy, did she get furious, that HE, (HE of all people) would be telling people about it! "Like it was some kind of conquest or something!" How dare he break the sacred trust between boyfriend and girlfriend. And became suspicious that I was "spreading the news."

LewDux: weapon13: miss diminutive: The authors of the research, from the University of Wisconsin, said films and television programmes had helped instill the idea that normal friends could become "friends with benefits" - that is, who have sex with each other.

Is there a single person left on the planet who really needs an explanation of the term "friends with benefits"?

Friends with free drugs? Unemployed people on the dole?

Friends with breasts and all the rest


A friend in need is a friend indeed.

Nonsense. I have what... 5 female friends. They're like family and I would be horrified at the thought. A stranger pointed out that one good friend and I "made a good couple" and I felt physically ill at the thought. Yes, she's attractive but whatever attraction I might have had is totally subverted by the friendship.

I can't fully describe human attractions and friendships, because I'm no expert, but there's definitely a category where friends are just friends and will never be anything else, because the attraction aspect has been short circuited by a bond that approaches too close to the 'family' dynamic.

MaliFinn: but some men occasionally think of women as something other than a place to stick a penis.


At my age, I'm just happy if they do the driving.

You can't be "best" friends unless you can fark. Sometimes life just calls for a good romp in the hay.

You can be dear, close, or even best with an asterisk but you can't really be the best of friends until fluids are exchanged.

jennies1897: I've been friends with all sorts of guys. Different personalities, different goals and drive in life. Like from the "I wanna be a washed-up drug addict" to "decent guy with aspirations, wife and kids" kinds of guys, plus quite a bit in between. What does that say about me?


It says you're 116 years old and putting your phone number on bathroom stalls is not working.

MaliFinn: ranold: Rincewind53: Certainly true for some people, but the idea that men are only friends with women because they want to get into their pants is utter hogwash. Hogwash, I say.

My best friend is a woman, and the thought of having sex with her is like the thought of having sex with a sister. No. Thanks.

You're gay.

It may strike you as odd, but some men occasionally think of women as something other than a place to stick a penis.


Correct, many think of them as fun companions whose friendship is valued...and also a place to stick their penis in.

I'm curious, are you married or in a long term relationship with another woman? My friends and I were discussing this very scenario the other day and some of them said straight up that they wouldn't date a man who's best friend is a woman.
I thought that was pretty extreme, especially since many of them are hypocritically best friends with other guys (who, according to this article at least, probably want to bone them).

The only people that need to read this is 20-something women that really think the guys they hang out with wouldn't go for it if they could.  Recently a pair of coworkers cracked my up with whole we're only friends when they snuggled up together while getting a smoke.  The girl gave me a strange look, but later when I had the guy alone I asked him, how long before he ask her out.  He tried playing it off, probably thinking I would run my mouth and blow it for him, but he finally admitted he was considering it.  The other young guys usually admit to that alot faster, but follows up with 'she has a boyfriend'.  Any woman who doesn't already knows this, should not be surprised when a guy-friend gets tired of waiting and walks away.

My wife doesn't always believe it either, but I watch the guys who talk to her at work.  Some of them are pervs.
