In an episode of The Big Bang Theory, two long time friends on the show Raj and Penny ended up having sex after a night of alcohol and DMC. The next day whilst trying to resolve the awkward situation, Penny said that sex ruins friendships and Raj replied,
“You can’t ruin a friendship with sex. That’s like trying to ruin ice cream with chocolate sprinkles.”
That is a funny line. But I am on Penny’s side. No good can come out of a fuck-buddy arrangement. One party will inevitably end up wanting more out of it, emotionally speaking. Though it can progress from a fuck-buddy thing to a boyfriend-girlfriend thing, most of the time it just doesn’t work out that way.
Having said that, you can’t have a good sexual relationship if you didn’t have a good friendship as the foundation. Chocolate sprinkles by themselves are nothing without the ice cream – it’s the ice cream that makes the sprinkles a special treat. Meaningless sex is just very dull.
