Is it OK to have female friends?

A couple in a tempestuous 2-year live-in relationship.

He says:

"I've had female friends ever since I can remember, I just get on better with women. Some of those women talk frankly to me about their sex lives, and there's nothing wrong with that. It's no worse than you'd get in Sex And The City, and there's nothing to worry about. The most salacious gossip was finding out that one of them gave her hairdresser oral sex as a tip, and another one was temporarily involved in a master/slave multiple relationship. As yer do. I raised my eyebrow, asked a few pertinent questions, and moved on.  Besides which, ever since I met you, I haven't really talked to them for a very long time, and certainly nothing like that."
She says:
"I don't trust you. You probably email them all sorts of sordid things all day at work, swapping pictures and who knows what they want from you? It's disgusting, and I have a hard enough time accepting the fact you have female friends, without imagining what you talk about with your disgusting perverted friends."

Para-phrasing, that is.

What do you think?
