Once in a while (whether drunk or sober), you might think to yourself about sleeping with your best friend. 

It could be a harmless fantasy that you wouldn’t even dare voice out.

Or… it could be a dream come true.

Either way, you wouldn’t really know until you take it out for a test drive (and yes, that’s a euphemism for having sexy time with your BFF). 😏

If you have been thinking about it but you are still on the fence, let us give you a little push.

Here are 10 reasons why you should have sex with your BFF:

1. They know you the best.

The number one reason you should have sex with your best friend is because they are probably the only people on Earth who knows you the best.

And this is the very best reason too!

Your bestie is someone whom you tell everything to and they know everything about you — all your dark secrets and embarrassing moments.

No doubt sleeping with your BFF would bring a lot of pleasure and even strengthen your connection to each other.


2. They know your family and friends.

There are two ways to look at this — if sleeping together is something you’re doing on the down low, no one would suspect a thing.

You guys are already spending time together and even if you stay over at each other’s place, no one will blink an eye because that’s so normal.

But if sleeping together ends up turning into a relationship, you wouldn’t have to worry about introducing your best friend turned lover to your family and friends.

Bonus point: they already love and accept your bestie!


3. They may already have a crush on you.

Taking a risk with a stranger is always nerve wrecking.

But when you are hanging around with your bff so much, it is inevitable that one or both of you start to catch feelings.

The thing about crushes is you will only ever get certainty when you voice it out. So be brave and tell your bestie you got the hots for them. They could be feeling the same way towards you!

Omg, if things work out, having sex with your best friend is going to be such a dream!


4. They know what you like… in bed.

Considering you confide in your bestie on the regular and talk to them about anything and everything, they most likely have a clear picture of your sexual preferences. This makes a good benefit to having sex with your BFF.

They would have heard your awful and awesome experiences so far and have a pretty good gauge of what you like.

Even if they don’t, it should be quite easy to talk to them about what you like and don’t like without worrying about hurting their feelings.


5. You won’t have to wait for them to call later.

They won’t treat you like how the kind of guys you meet on dating apps would. 

You know the kind I’m talking about — the kind that would leave right after sex and ghost you after that or the kind that would be vague and unreachable for a week just for them to booty call you at 1am.

Back to having sex with your best friend, you won’t have to worry about whether they would call you or if you should call them. There’s no need for such protocol when it comes to your bestie.


6. They won’t use you.

Best friends won’t hurt you, not on purpose anyway. Which makes a good reason to have sex with your bestie.

One thing you don’t have to worry about while having sex with your closest friend is that they truly love you, no matter what, and aren’t just exploiting you for their own pleasure.

No matter how the dynamic changes in your friendship, you will still have each other’s backs and neither you nor your best friend would do anything to harm the other party.


7. You can talk to them.

Isn’t that what a best friend means? Someone you can talk to, be open with and not fear any judgement or prejudice. They even know all your deepest darkest secrets. 

Even if you were to tell them that you’ve been thinking of having sex with them, they wouldn’t react negatively towards you.

So why not just give it a go?


8. You can go back.

And if the whole sex with your best friend didn’t work out the way you hoped it would, you can still go back to being BFFs.

That’s easier said than done but it’s not impossible. Just see it as a failed experiment and go back to the way things were. 

If your friendship is really strong, it will be able to withstand the slight detour it took.


9. You are comfortable with them.

Is there anyone you are more comfortable with than your bestie? They have seen you in your most beautiful but most importantly, they have also seen you at your worst.

Whether you were in your pajamas with the horrible bed hair or gorging yourself on ice-cream after a bad break up, your best friend has seen it all.

You won’t have to worry about being self conscious around them when you’re in the moment.


10. You can skip the getting to know you part.

You already know each other so well, there’s no need to feel like you have to get to know them before having sex with them.

There’s also no pressure to wait or follow the usual dating rules. It’s like getting the express pass at the theme park — you don’t have to wait to take a ride on the rollercoaster. 😉

There are many reasons to have sex with your best friend, so take a chance and see where it leads you. 

You might hear people say that things won’t work out but only you know what’s right for you and your best friend. Sometimes you just have to follow your heart.
