In Sula, the theme of sex versus intimacy is portrayed between the relationships between men and women.  For example, Hannah has many sexual partners, but will not let them have sex in her bed because “She would fuck practically anything, but sleeping with someone implied for her a measure of trust and a definite commitment (44).”  Similarly in the movie “Friends with Benefits” Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis just have sex, strictly for the fun of it, swearing on the iPad bible that there would be “no emotions, just sex.”
