Is it really so impossible for men and women to be friends without sex getting in the way?

This is the question at the heart of Lisa Gee's Friends, which takes a candid look at platonic relationships between the sexes. Is there a historical precedent for the flirtatious way we interact with the opposite sex, or have we sexualized friendships that were, at one time, very common and unthreatening? And who has the upper hand in a mixed-sex friendship? Can there be any equality?

Lisa Gee employs extensive research and fascinating field interviews to get at the heart of this timeless issue, writing with a level of knowledge and experience that transcends the average (and cynical) relationship wisdom. In Friends, Gee shows us that friendships across the gender divide are more widespread and necessary than ever before.
