There also seems to be a false dichotomy bandied about: either he/she is your friend OR you think about having sex with him/her. Why wouldn't it be possible to have a friend you thought about having sex with? Thoughts are not equivalent to actions. Sex itself might complicate a friendship if it does happen; but it wouldn't be impossible to continue the friendship. So yes, whatever you think or don't think, regarding sex, friendship with anyone of any gender is possible.

I don't know if you have a girlfriend or not, but if you do, and she spent quite a bit of time with some other guy and claimed it to be platonic, if you're anything like me and every male I've ever known, I'm sure you wouldn't be very comfortable with it.
