And the winner of the poll is...

“Friends with Benefits” has never quite sat right with me. Maybe I’m just too much of a romantic, but I never quite understood the dynamic - if two people like each other’s company, care about each other, are sexually attracted and compatible, then why wouldn’t they be more than friends? What’s the magic in just remaining friends who fuck now and then, as opposed to becoming lovers and enjoying all the fringe benefits that come with a romantic relationship?

(This is a rhetorical question, of course. If you’ve had a FWB experience and it worked for you, great. I’m simply saying I personally don’t get it and know it wouldn’t work for me.)

In this audio, I imagined what might happen the morning after a pair of friends decided to have sex for the first time. Without having discussed it or given it too much thought, they engaged in what Seinfeld described as as “spirited bout of skanko-roman wrestling” and now, in the cozy light of morning, they’re waking up with each other and needing to address what happened. It’s kind of a sequel to the previous FWB audio I did, the one in which I asked you to help me figure out what my listeners would like to hear…

This is a fun, playful audio with some serious questions and issues in it, and hopefully by the end of the audio, you know what you would say :P

    This was an interesting one to listen to! I tend to project myself into the role of the male listener very easily, and this one was tough because I had to face the cognitive dissonance of letting this wonderful woman lay her heart bare before me without giving her ANY kind of answer, good or bad.

    This led to me trying to imagine what kind of circumstances would make him (me) be unwilling to commit to a romantic relationship with her. I started creating more of a backstory for this guy: one where he really does love her deeply, but every past relationship he's had has ended with him deeply hurting his partner, or at least believing he has. Of course he doesn't want to put this friend through that. Even with this compunction, he can't stop himself from having a night of passionate lovemaking when the opportunity arises!

    I also like to think that he's misguided in believing this, and that he'll get past it after the events from this audio. I have high hopes for these two!

      I always feel like I've done a good job if you start wondering about the couple and whether they go on to have a relationship 😊

    This may seem odd, but I'm a female going through gender dsymorphia, and lately it has been tough figuring out who I am, especially while living alone. I've been lurking with these audios for a while but haven't commented until now. Even though they are more male oriented, these have been really helping me relieve some stress without the unrealism of visual porn. I absolutely adore audios like these, a lot of compassion, love, and a little dash of humor :p Just thought I would send some support and motivation, keep up the good work! <3

      Thank you so much, I'm so glad you find some comfort and stress relief in my audios! My audios are (hopefully) for everyone, but as a straight woman I definitely gear them towards male listeners. If you identify as male, that means you too. 😘

    Me: "Well, I've given it a lot of thought to your convincing boyfriend sales pitch...I wasn't sure at first if I could keep up with you! But you seem pretty happy with me napping all the time and waking me up with breakfast (which I will desperately need to 'replenish')...so...I'm sold! You got yourself a boyfriend!" :P

    But seriously, "oh the feels" + "making love" + "cumming inside" tags...how could I resist? I was expecting a confession of feelings and then a long love making session, but this was totally different and I still loved it! I totally feel that I couldn't do a FWB because of this situation...I wouldn't be able to help myself from the romantic feelings! I don't think anyone can really separate a sexual relationship, it's like once you cross that line, you can't go back...and when it's truly right, who cares what's back there? Let's get this Lovers part going! :P

      Here here! This was a kind of story arc I wanted to explore, but it's funny, it attracted a couple of iffy comments on Reddit. I don't think people quite get that this is fiction, at heart. But hey, to each his own!

    Fantastic work as always. But apart from that, I'd like to share a little something about myself. There's a reason I picked up this username. I'm a kind of guy who many would like to call "nice guy". I often end up looking uninteresting, making it hard to find friends, let alone finding ones with benefits. Would you make an audio for the nice guys like me out there? Need not have to be sexual, just a little encouraging piece would do.

    • A Eve on 2019-04-16 09:01:02 (UTC)

      Most of my audios are for 'nice guys' :P

    I'm not down with a friends with benefits thing either, but I understand why some have had them.

    You would want to have sex with someone you trust, so with a friend seems logical, just as long it was discussed and boundaries are in place, so their needs are taken care of.

    • A Eve on 2019-04-15 08:48:06 (UTC)

      I think I can see the point of it if it's a one time thing, like you were both just really horny and wanted to have sex, and knowing and trusting each other could make that easier. I guess I don't understand the long term FWB relationships that some people have. I'm not judging them - if it works for people, that's great. I just know I couldn't do it.

    As always, Eve, an amazing job! I especially loved when you randomly dropped into a Southern accent. It was adorable.

    Like you, I'll admit that I'm not really built for a FWB situation. So, I'd hope that these two get together in the end. I guess I'm just a big ol' softie at heart. :)

    • A Eve on 2019-04-15 08:48:34 (UTC)

      haha I don't know where that came from!

      I think these two will be together a long time :P
