Japanese call the ‘friends with benefits’ relationship as “セックス友” (Sekusutomo) which means f***Buddy or sex friend.
Traditionally, Japanese followed the form of courtship called Omiai, where the parents asked matchmakers to bring photos and resumes of eligible partners and the couples would meet only if the parents agree with the match. But, these days we find that the traditional courtship is giving way to no commitment, casual and temporary relationships. Sekusutomo relationships have become more popular in Japan. Sex is casual for many Japanese people and based on surveys conducted in 2002, it has been found that some boys and girls keep more than five or more Sekusutomo or sex friends. Because there was a low rate of HIV infection in Japan, the Japanese assume that their Sekusutomo relations are at low risks and condoms are seldom used.
In summary, the friend with benefits relationship is becoming popular throughout the world.
Check out these techniques that can help you get a “Sekusutomo”. For Men (to get a female sex friend) and For Women (to get a male sex friend).
