Also wanted to add that girls are different, because they occasionally call each other girlfriends without any romantic/sexual implication. Boys don't do this - that I know of.

Just want to say that as an American native English speaker, we never say "boyfriend" or "boy friend" for a male friend. That only means 彼氏(かれし/boyfriend/male romantic partner). For a male friend you could say "male friend" or "guy friend" (latter is kind of colloquial). I see this mistake a lot out there, and it's unfortunately on tanoshiijapanese, too. Love this website though!!
