2001 Times-Picayune [New Orleans] (March 31) E-2:

“Dear Abby: …I am attracted to one of my college friends. …I asked him if
he would like to be ‘friends with benefits.’ You know - friends who show
affection and who comfort each other, with no strings attached…. Do you
think I am setting myself up for a fall?”

The movie, “Friends with Benefits,” appeared in 2011.
