Does friends with benefits work?

The recent film release of "No Strings Attached" has made many people contemplate the feasibility of friends with benefits relationships.

Here, Tracy Clark-Flory weighs in on the question for Salon. Short summary? The friends with benefits setup sucks.

An excerpt:

When you talk to people who have been there and done that -- and even those who are continuing to do that -- the response is overwhelmingly negative. As my own former "friend with benefits" put it to me, "I've been in so many of these situations and, basically, they work until they don't."

Agree or disagree?
