Does Japanese have a word for someone who's your "fuck buddy"? You know, someone decently attractive with whom you have all the sex of a relationship without all the romance and rituals.

Does Japanese have a decent equivalent? Or is this one of those concepts that's too esoterically Western to find in an Asian culture like that of Japan?


You can use the word セフレ, which comes from a portmanteau of the English loanwords ックス (sex) and フレンド (friend).

The concept definitely exists in Japan. When I broke up with my ex-girlfriend she explained she didn't want to talk to me anymore because she didn't want to be a 「セフレ」.

The other word which you want is やりとも.やる means "do sex" and とも means "friend". かきタレ also means that but this is slangy.
