I think for a piece like this you actually need to talk to more people about FWB. You're numbers and "studies" show a very limited take on the subject that isn't very relatable to young adults. Try talking to a couple of people who are in an FWB arrangement.

@ Matt. I completely disagree. I think this article is using these recent 'studies' as you call them (even though they are properly sited from a reputable research magazine) to open up a conversation on FWB. I think this is definitely of interest to young adults-- especially university students who are (arguably) just establishing themselves sexually. Opening a conversation on what is happening in a sexual relationship-- including the facts, the consequences, and some advice-- is very useful to a consenting young person.
