It is also worth taking a look at the ProxyCommand option.

For the case above something like this should be put in ~/.ssh/config:

Host your.own.host-tunneled
  HostKeyAlias your.own.host
  ProxyCommand ssh user at your.friends.host nc your.own.host 22

The you can just do "ssh your.own.host-tunneled" and go through
your.friends.host transparently.
