** If you didn't romance either Garrus or Tali in Mass Effect 2, then its heavily implied that they become this near the end of 3. Tali even outright tell Garrus "I'm just using you for your body." but its unclear if she's being serious or just joking and Garrus seems fine with it either way.

Except -- they aren't.

As it turns out, their intense attraction for each other ends outside of the bedroom. Maybe their personalities clash, or neither of them wants a long-term relationship. When they're not doing the [[UnusualEuphemism horizontal hula,]] they could be JustFriends, quietly indifferent, or even [[BelligerentSexualTension argumentative]]. If they're on good terms, they might share relationship advice to [[ShipperOnDeck help each other find true love]].

Some draw a distinction between "Friends with Benefits" and "Fuck Buddies". In this view, "Fuck Buddies" are couplings with ''no'' emotional relationship, just great sex. "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Friends with benefits]]", by contrast, provide sex ''and'' friendship, but not as much emotional intimacy as a full-blown romance.

* The (very explicit) {{Yuri}} manga ''Maka Maka'' is about two women who insist they're just this - though it's blatantly obvious to the reader that they're way beyond just friends.

** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', the Inquisitor's romance with [[TheHedonist Iron Bull]], [[BadassGay Dorian]], and [[ButchLesbian Sera]] starts out as this. Unsurprisingly, it evolves beyond this if you decide to continue pursuing a relationship. Also, it's implied that this was the relationship between [[BiTheWay Leliana and Josephine]] while the latter was working as the Antivan ambassador to Orlais. Refreshingly, they're still just friends. You can also ask Leliana if this was what happened between her and Justinia, she will go into an angry tirade at the cliche.

* In the A-3 fandisk of ''VisualNovel/MajiDeWatashiNiKoishinasai'', at the beginning of Stacy's route you can choose whether Yamato is currently in a relationship. If you decide that he is, he's been sleeping with Chika for a few years with the understanding that as soon as one of them finds someone they really love they'll break it off. Yamato is already incredibly bored with the relationship and zones out even in the middle of sex while Chika actually fell in love with him at some point. Buuut it's not her route, so she gets her heart broken.
* ''VisualNovel/ShinyDays''
** In one ending, Makoto begins sleeping with Ai. He assumes she knew that the relationship was just about sex while she assumed they were dating. She has no real ending, largely as a result of constantly being screwed over by Otome and Karen.
** During one possible branching Makoto ends up sleeping with Youko, Sekai's mother, without realizing that she's about twice his age. When talking to Setsuna's mother later without knowing who ''she'' is either he can say that the relationship is just about sex and that he has no idea why she suddenly came onto him after he walked into her restaurant. This branch can lead to an ending with Mai, her friend Manami or even a four way ending involving Mai, Youko ''and'' Setsuna.

** Pias is [[OurElvesAreBetter an elven]] [[LadyOfBlackMagic sorceress]], who [[DeusSexMachina has to asorb mana through sex]] in order to sustain her power. Since Santa's already an item with Pink, she sleeps [[GentleGiant with Bobo]], usually whenever their travelling party stops at an inn. So it's understood that their arrangement is strictly business; not that Bobo's complaining.
** Eventually {{subverted}} by chapter 11 of the manga version, when Pias [[RealityEnsues learns that she's pregnant]] with Bobo's child[[note]]which was thought to be impossible, since elven mages of her Clan are usually barren[[/note]]. They take the news well and retire as a couple, by chapter 24, after she gives birth to their son.

* This trope is the best definition to the relationship between ComicBook/HarleyQuinn and Poison Ivy in Harley's New 52 comic. They are not dating but it is more than implied their current relationship is sexual. Harley even has a dream where she married Bruce Wayne, Ivy was [[ThreesomesAreHot invited to the honeymoon]]. This trope applies to pretty much every work were Harley and Ivy appear together.

* Given a horror spin in the ({{NSFW}}) short film ''[[https://vimeo.com/153925644 Fuck Buddies]]'', in what initially appears to be a quirky "mumblecore" indie rom-com about the relationship between two friends and room-mates becoming increasingly complicated by this trope starts getting darker when it gradually becomes clear that a seemingly malevolent supernatural force is manipulating them into doing so.
