If you are like many women today, in addition to your numerous female friends, you also have several male friends. For the most part, these are guys you don't date, but you enjoy their company. You hang out with them, share what's going on in your personal lives, get their male perspective on things, but that's about as far as it goes. 9 Things You Need To Know About Condoms
