Girl Talk: Friends With Benefits? I Don’t Think So

Not long ago, I met a guy that reminded me of that sexy NPR storyteller Ira Glass. Instantly, I fell in nerd-love with this doppelganger. After dating for a while, though, we realized we had only one thing in common: sex. So we decided to be friends with benefits. According to a Michigan State University study, sixty-percent of college co-eds have been involved in an FWB relationship, and plenty of my thirty-something girlfriends were doing it to stay satisfied, so I figured I’d give the laid back, no-romantic-attachments approach to getting laid a whirl. A year later, faux-Ira and I still hang out and hump. After our most recent rendezvous last weekend, I began to wonder what I’m doing. What are the real benefits to friends with benefits?

To counteract the shocking switch, French women have become more aggressive and have even doubled their number of partners since the 1970s.

As the 600-page report proves, French women have risen to the challenge. Their icon: First Lady/model Carla Bruni. The Italian beauty, who wed President Nicholas Sarkozy last month, has boasted about her sexploits, from Mick Jagger to Eric Clapton, and was recently quoted bashing monogamy. Three cheers for: Liberté! Egalité! Vajayjé! [Telegraph] Keep reading »
