Opening up a sexual relationship with friends is a very controversial topic. Some people agree it can be done without a hitch, while others think it’s a recipe for disaster. Regardless of the school of thought you adhere to, there are some steps you can take to improve the chances of successful play with your friends. 

In this article, we’re talking about ways to have a positive sexual relationship with your friends. We’ll start by addressing whether it’s actually a good idea or not. Then, we’ll be sharing three tips to help you have the best experience possible. 

Is it Ever a Good Idea to Play with Your Friends?

Deciding whether it’s a good idea to have sex with a friend or not isn’t always a black and white issue. It’s something that definitely deserves some thought and consideration, and a decision you should take seriously before making it. Some important questions to ask yourself include:

  1. Am I feeling pressured into this?
  2. Do I feel safe with this person?
  3. What are the emotional risks for me?
  4. Am I going to regret this later?

You might not have a straightforward answer for some of these questions, but they’re still worth exploring. It’s never a good idea to jump into a sexual relationship with someone, but doing so with a friend can come with even more strings attached.

Tips for Having Sex with Your Friends – and not regretting it

So, you’ve decided to move forward with the sexual relationship, and you want some tips on successful play with your friends. Good on you for making a decision! Here are the top tips for making it one you don’t regret. 

  • Talk about Rules and Expectations First

Just as with any alternative relationship, communication has to remain a priority here. Not only should you set initial rules and expectations in the beginning, but you should also check in regularly, and be honest with your feelings. Some rules that you might consider implementing are to:

  • Always be friends first
  • Prioritize protection
  • Be honest
  • Work through feelings of jealousy
  • Always Use Protection

Unless you’re exclusive and not worried about a surprise pregnancy, protection is a must. You and your partner can decide on the best form of protection for your relationship, but this is an important discussion to have at the beginning and each time you have sex. 

  • Prioritize Your Friendship

The reason honesty is so important in a friends-with-benefits situation is because it can seriously help save the friendship. Checking in frequently and having discussions that are open and honest prevents negative feelings from growing or resentment from manifesting. If the feelings become too heavy, you can work together to prioritize your friendship and assess the play from there.
