Watch: Alison Brie & Jason Sudeikis Are Friends Without Benefits In Red Band Trailer For 'Sleeping With Other People'

The old adage is that sex complicates friendship, but that’s probably doubly true when the pals in question are bonafide sex addicts. The rom-com genre gets a naughty twist with the upcoming “Sleeping With Other People,” and a new red band trailer has arrived that’s just NSFW-enough that you might want to close the office door.

Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie lead the latest from Leslye Headland (“Bachelorette”) that follows a couple of former sexual partners who reconnect at a meeting for sex addicts. Their friendship reignites, but becomes a bit more complex once they realize there are some real emotions brewing beyond a genital attraction. Here’s the official synopsis: 

Years after impulsively losing their virginity to each other in college, Lainey (Alison Brie) and Jake (Jason Sudeikis) meet at a support group in New York (“What’s a nice girl like you doing at a sex addicts meeting?”). A spark resurfaces, but they’ve walked this road before. Abject failures in romance who lead lives of serial infidelity and self-sabotage, they agree to a platonic friendship to mutually support their recovery—and what’s more supportive than teaching your friend proper self-stimulation? Can love bloom while you’re sleeping with other people?

Co-starring Amanda Peet, Adam Scott, Natasha Lyonne, and Jason Mantzoukas, “Sleeping With Other People” opens on August 21st. Watch below.
