Dear Abby | Not every friend desires benefits

Dear Abby: Some people believe sex with friends can turn a friendship into chaos. I don’t believe it because I can remain a friend and still be there intimately. I have a friend I feel would be a good match because we are both very sexual and filthy-minded. We continuously tease about it. I know it’s only a joke, but I believe he’s the type of person who would feel the friendship would be lost if we were intimate — or worse, if we aren’t compatible in bed.
