For some people it is and others it isn't, there's no right or wrong answer. Do whatever you feel happy doing :P might sound like a half-assed reply but that's the truth.

Just do what you want. I wouldn't though it'd be awkward.

A relationship focused on sex with no strings attached.

Well I think eventually it would get awkward due to the many complications which would eventually arise within the friendship.

Also the "friend" you choose to do this with is important too.... some people are more relaxed whereas there are people who would want something emotional rather than only sexual.

Doesn't work for very long. One person will always have more feelings than the other, or else this situation would never arise.

Not something that I'd ever do. But if people want to do it, then go ahead.

lol depends on how stable u want your sex life to be

It also depends on whether you're prepared for one's feelings to be unrequited (always happens - if not, then you're in a relationship and the whole concept of FwB has been defeated)

AND it depends on your relationship with the person, do you want it to be meaningful with a friend or not as meaningful with a complete stranger. Either way it'll impact you

Would I do it? idk

I just want sex. I don't care about meeting someone I care about. Sounds awful but it's not like I want to settle down and establish a family now lol

Who has the right to tell you if it is or isn't acceptable?

Everybody.
And how exactly does 'everybody' dictate to you how you should be living your life and fulfilling you sexual desires? Two fingers to 'everybody' in that case.

Where did I say that everybody could "dictate" your lifestyle? I just implied that everybody can make comments on it.

'Telling', as in telling you that you should/shouldn't pursue friends with benefits, in spite of the fact it has nothing to do with them. Perhaps I should rephrase; people can tell you whether or not friends with benefits is or isn't acceptable, but you have no obligation to listen to somebody so repressive of your private lifestyle
