Loving friends - the revolt of our closest relationships

Friendship and sex don't go together. That's what countless relationship guides, romantic movies and often our own environment claim. Nevertheless, more and more people are looking for friends with benefits. Traditional family images and the ideal of one great love seem to be completely overloaded with expectations and demands. So is friendship plus just an attempt to escape from obsessive romance? Or does it not rather serve as a model for new ways of intimate relationships?

In my book, I take a look at the development and practice of this unusual form of relationship. I examine its emotional and ethical conflicts as well as its utopian potential: Is there really no escape from the romantic norm and its claims to possession? Are our intimate relationships subject to mere market mechanisms? What sexist narratives shape our ideas of friendship and where do they come from? Is there a friendly eroticism? And in what ways do we allow ourselves to love our friends?
