It's always been an option for those willing to pursue it. Why would putting a name to it lower one's inhibitions or desire?

Well when I was a teenager I thought the idea of having sex with a female friend was weird. Your girlfriend could be your friend, but just having sex with your friend was like having sex with your sister. The whole FWB thing is changing that somewhat.

Yes in the past like, if you were having sex it was assumed you were in a relationship of some sort, or 'lovers' which was a broad term for two people sleeping with each other.

The idea of, 'he/she is my friend but we also have sex' is in a way sort of newish, even in practice it's been going on for ages, the whole social idea of it is become accepted.

Pre-marital sex between boyfriend and girlfriend was much less accepted back in the 50s, imagine what they thought of those who weren't even 'going steady?'

I agree Michael many people still believe in the conservative way. I'm in the middle of conservative and liberal. Although I don't think I can have sex with any friend of mine. It would be weird.

But I mean, now people have made a name for it (and a convenient acronym) it's become a 'thing.'
