I never thought of "friends with benefits" as being "casual" at all. I have had sex with some of my best buddies, and "casual" is the last thing I have thought of it as. Just the opposite in fact. These were people that I had spent up into the night talking with for months or years, who I had seen in and out of "relationships" and them so vice-versa with me... some were roommates at one point... etc. So I don't think you folks who are squeamish about "friends with benefits" have the scoop or inside track what it's really all about; although when I was with those individuals, the term "friends with benefits" hadn't been coined yet. so maybe it does mean something other than the way I always thought it did.

Edit: my husband is my best friend (of the human species at least) and I have sex with him, so does that also make him a "friend with benefits". It seems that he has more benefits than any other - including health insurance.
