Robert Duval, defending, said: "This is a serious offence and I accept that is the case. We would like to have a pre-sentence report. This is a lady of previous good character."
Friendship was ordered to register as a sex offender.
Richard Posner, prosecuting for the CPS, said the Crown would consider applying for a Sexual Offences Prevention Order (SOPO).
Such an order can be designed to prohibit contact between sex offenders and young people.
Friendship was bailed, pending a probation report, for sentence on September 21.
She was bailed on condition she has no contact with the complainant.
The Recorder of Bristol Judge Neil Ford QC told her: "The fact I am adjourning the case for a pre-sentence report is no indication of the sentence imposed on you in due course.
"The fact you have been given bail is no indication of the sentence."
