Explain your use of "religion." 

Modern Buddhism would allow it. 
Atheism (declared a religion in the 1970s) allows it.

Sex before marriage is not allowed. It is a sin.

And it is a mistake. In effect you are lying with your body. By doing it you are saying (with your body) "I am completely yours" but you are holding yourself back because you are still reserving the right to eventually have sex with someone else.

It a mistake too because, no matter how good birth control advertises itself to be, a baby can still be made during any act of intercourse. Sex says to God "I am willing to accept children." Even if in your mind you are saying the opposite.

Also think about your future wife. If you don't end up marrying this person, now your wife will have to sleep with you with the knowledge that you slept with someone else. She will wonder if she "lives" up to or is better than this person and what if she doesn't? Are you prepared to break her heart? Or lie?

There are more reasons too. There are always reasons why God calls things sin. They are sin both because they offend Him but also because they are very bad for us.

Your future wife, whether it be this woman or another, will respect you and love you all the more because you saved yourself for her till marriage. Your current friend is probably worried that you will leave her if you don't. Ask her if that is so and reassure her that you won't.

God bless.

Not if you are a Christian, no.

I agree with what the others have said, I also want to address another issue I see.

I ... want to go for sex with one of my friends.
I know many kids and young adults, that sex is any old activity friends can to like going to see a movie or getting a bite to eat. It doesn't matter about the sex of the other person in many instances. God designed marriage as he designed man and wife. Trust me when I casual, extramarital/premarital sex is not only a sin, it's also much less for filing than being with a spouse you love and sex is the intermingling of not just flesh but spirit,

Proverbs 18:22, "Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the Lord."

Genesis 2:24, "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."

Matthew 19:9, "Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."

If you consider yourself a Christian I beg that you reconsider.
