That is a longterm friend with whom you have sex, without the interdependences or public-ness of a lover or boyfriend.
The sex is purely recreatonal sex, without the usual risks:
- being forced into ComingOut?
- facing physical violence,
- disease (some fuck buddies use SaferSex, some don't.)
- and the big one, eeek!! commitment
Fuck buddies come in all flavours:
- married guys who want man to man sex now and then
- gay guys in longterm relationships who want someone different periodically
- single guys who just don't want a relationship
- some guys who identify as str8 enjoy playing with other men for a variety of reasons - entertainment, physical pleasure, company, bonding. The other guy might identify as str8 or gay.
Notice that "hornyness" is not in this list. This is not really an excuse. If you just need to cum, you can always jerk off.
Getting a fuck buddy is just one reason for MeetingPeople.
