We're happy to present this story from one of our favorite sites, Fox News Magazine. Today, Ashley Papa looks into the new website Bang With Friends.
Facebook has given a new meaning to the word "friend." Now, a new website that promotes casual sex between Facebook friends may be redefining sexual relationships.
Bang With Friends allows you to select the Facebook friends you'd like to have sex with. If the feeling is mutual, both parties receive an email message to establish a rendezvous. The website also features a "bangability" score, which measures your trending sexiness based on the number of people who view and click on you.
The site was created by three college students who say it makes online dating more "honest."
Friends With Benefits Relationships On the Rise
"We saw the problems and frustrations people have with online dating, so we decided to create a dating website that was honest, simple and fun," says C, one of the creators who prefers anonymity. "We think it helps break the ice between people who are already friends and share a sexual attraction."
While it may seem convenient, casual sex with friends can lead to all sorts of relationship problems.
Psychologist Jeff Gardere says the site is innovative, but he emphasizes the importance of getting to know someone before jumping into a sexual relationship with him or her.
"This cheapens the idea of what relationships should be about," Gardere says. "It eliminates some of the things that should lead to sex, like emotional and physical connections and trust."
