If you’re thinking about having sex with a friend, be very careful, because it is not easy to preserve a friendship once you have sex. We think we can control our feelings, but it's not so simple. • If one of you becomes romantically attached as a result of the sex, the friendship will probably not survive. • If you've done it before, and you know you can keep your feelings in check, you might be successful, but what about your friend?
