KUOW – Friends with benefits

There is a social scenario of how romantic relationships are supposed to develop, and this scenario can prevent us from becoming physically intimate with friends and continuing to be friends, no more and no less. In this episode, we try to figure out what would be possible if we hadn’t drawn such sharp lines between sex and friendship, and how to fix things when crossing the lines gets messy.
