* In the comedy ''Film/NoStringsAttached'', Ashton Kutcher and NataliePortman star as a pair of these. You can really tell because (a) They're both getting redressed on the movie poster and (b) It actually says on the poster [[TitleDrop "Friendship has its benefits"]].

** [[DuelingMovies Similarly]], ''Film/FriendsWithBenefits'' feature Creator/MilaKunis and JustinTimberlake as another such pair. They have this setup because they're too busy to go dating. Complications arise when RomanceEnsues.

We could be both to each other''

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/{{Castle}}'', Esposito and Lainie apparently become this after their romantic relationship fizzles: Lainie mentions them having broken up but that they still get together for the odd "booty call".
* {{Deconstructed}} in ''Series/MastersOfSex''. Virginia wants to just be FWB with Ethan, but this being TheFifties such a relationship is practically a foreign concept. They have a violent breakup once Ethan gets through his head that she was never in love with him (literally: [[WouldHitAGirl she ends up with a bloody nose]]), and though they make up later, they don't resume the relationship.

They are on friendly terms, meet, due to meeting in a tavern without previously knowing each other's identities, and when they do realize, decided that it was good enough to keep doing anyway. There doesn't appear to be any animosity between them, though there doesn't seem to be any emotional ties between them, either, indicating it is likely just for pleasure.

* Combined with {{Pun}}s in the ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' achievements. There's an achievement called "Friends List With Benefits" for hugging three people on your Steam friends list. Although hugging is the closest thing [[CuteMachines ATLAS and P-Body]] get to romance or sex, at one point GLaDOS asks the bots if they know what could happen as a result of hugging...and makes it sound for a moment like it could result in STD's.

* ''Series/{{iCarly}}'' fan fic [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5009447/1/iNever_Knew iNever Knew]] and its sequel, [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5075276/1/iNever_Knew_This_Would_Be_So_Hard iNever Knew This Would Be So Hard]]. While Freddie [[RelationshipUpgrade wants to be boyfriend and girlfriend]], Carly wants to be friends with benefits, which they attempt, albeit by experimenting sexually but not sleeping together again.

Freddie gets concerned that because Carly doesn't want to tell anyone, and that they haven't slept together again, that Carly thinks it's a mistake.
