    What is the meaning of friends with benefits?

    The meaning as I understand it is you are friends that have sex (benefits) occasionally, but with no commitment. Just friends having sex together.

    As I understand it, it means friends that have sex but do not have an otherwise committed relationship.

    A relationship with absolutely no strings attached. You have the benefits of a relationship without all of the moral and emotional obligation. If you want to "hook-up" you can and you aren't required to "cuddle" afterwords.

    Friends when you need them and stranger when they need you.

    It’s pretty much self-explanatory.  It’s when two people that get along great as friends but do not see each other as being “the one” decide to have sex with each other instead of (strangers) when the urge arises. They’d rather have it with a “friend” or someone they trust.  FWBs are usually temporary until one of them finds a real mate.
    A “booty call” on the other hand is someone a person meets strictly to have sex with. They generally do not bring them around family, friends, or co-workers.  There usually is no serious introspective discussions about personal goals, dreams, or aspirations. In other words they are not seen as a “friend”.
    Both FWBs and "Booty calls" are often kept secret or with few others knowing what is going on between them.

    sex on regular basis, not sure if it's a good idea because one will be hurt if he/she fall in love with the other partner.
