Sex is great, but there are more ways than one to accomplish that euphoric feeling without sex.

There are so many small, ordinary aspects of life that can just send a person and we come across them daily.

A good steak.

A home repair.

The things that make you say...

"I tingle all over."


Redditor OldAboba asked:

"What is the best non-sexual physical feeling you’ve ever felt?"

Adele. Adele live. She sends me.

Floating

Relaxed Exit Strategy GIF by Hannah Bronfman Giphy

"I got a professional full body (everything but my man parts) massage a few years back for the first and so far only time at a spa after the recommendation from a coworker. I felt like I was floating on a cloud for the next few days."

Through your nose...

"Sneezing when you're sick. Then you get that about 20 second feeling of breathing through your nose again and you like ahh that's what I aspire to at the moment."

Sanguiniutron

"Or the very last sneeze of your illness. During a fire drill in high school, I was ambling out after fighting a head old for a few days. The alarm was killing my head which was already throbbing from the sinus pressure."

"I was nearing the field, well away from my classmates, when I cough/sneezed out a huge, green loogie - cleared it about three feet, no icky trail - and by the time I was walking back to the building I was feeling pretty much back to normal. No more head cold after that. Never had something like that ever happen again where there was such an abrupt end to the head cold."

'migraine cocktail'

"Right after a migraine goes away. It's almost a spiritual experience."

LarryLong*alls_

"This was going to be my answer. I was in the ER one time for a really bad migraine. They gave me what they called a 'migraine cocktail.' When they pushed it through the IV I could feel the cold liquid make its way through my body, up to my head. Once it hit my brain, the migraine was gone. It was pure ecstasy. Even better was that cocktail had Benadryl in it so I fell asleep not long after and slept so good."

Shake It

"That stretch til you shake when you wake up."

Quanisha8472

"I once stretched too hard in the morning and got the worst calf cramp ever... it looked like a prune and I thought I would die from the pain. Couldn't stretch in bed for months afterwards out of fear it would happen again."

tevelis

"When you move over 50, it turns into that stretch til you put your back into a muscle spasm that lasts days."

The Itch

Scratching Feel Good GIF by 60 Second DocsGiphy

"I had a cast and splint on both my legs for 2 months. When they cut it off, they scratched my legs for me and the itch was just top notch! Yeah."

Itching an itch can change a life.

YUM!

Sleep for Life

"When you’ve been up for 20 hours+ and finally get into bed and you just know it’ll be the best sleep of your life."

Ok_Sprinkles_8777

"But man, after 36+ hours, the body sort of aches and it's hard to fall asleep despite being completely exhausted. Then the restless legs kick in... ugh. I do agree that a 20hr-ish stint is amazing to cuddle into, especially if you don't have to get up at any specific time the next day."

curlyfat

"Makes it better when you’ve been sleep deprived for weeks and know you have NO PLANS tomorrow and can sleep as much as you need."

That Feeling

"When you're absolutely busting for a pee and you can finally go!"

Apprehensive_Pen_793

"Apparently there’s a thing called a 'pee-gasm' that people (usually women) have that causes an orgasmic feeling when you pee after holding it for a while! I’ve definitely experienced this and I’ve intentionally waited a while so I could have that good feeling... lol."

cocoawhirl

I Can Hear!!

"The feeling of water leaving your ear after being there all day."

Apprehensive_Bet_438

"I had some impacted earwax for a week in one ear, and when it finally got removed it was the best feeling in the world. Initially it was like having a tv or radio in my ear that only had static, but then I could hear. Good god, I could hear. It was amazing."

doodwhatsrsly

"Oh man, and it’s WARM from being in your head, and the warmth makes the sensation of leaving even better."

A Good Rest

"Sleeping in a warm blanket in winters."

"Or sleeping in a cold blanket in summer."

I am enthralled by all of those things.

In order to live a happy, healthy life, it's important to look to the future and leave your past behind you.

Even so, very few people don't find themselves laying awake in bed at night, or ferociously chopping vegetables in their kitchen feeling resentful, or holding a grudge from something in their past.

Losing a lead role in a school play, not making varsity, being excluded from a birthday party everyone else was invited to.

No matter how long ago it was, it's still hard to shake off the feeling of disappointment and anger you felt at the time.

For some, the bitterness is. like a pot of tea, and only grows stronger the longer it steeps.

Try as I might, I just can't get into the Kardashians. I think most of us are tired of them, actually.

But their fanbase is massive and they are pretty much the American version of the royal family. They wouldn't have attained that status without a legion of loyal fans who eat up everything they do, contributing to a massive collective social media following.

But fans of the Kardashians are just the most high-profile fanbase you might know about.

There are others you might not be so keenly aware of.

Life is moving so fast.

Everytime we get used to something it seems like it evolves and we have to learn more.

I miss CD's. Spotify confuses me.

AOL chat rooms were simple. What the H*LL is Discourse? Or Discontent?

I miss TV just being on channels in the box.

There are so many apps I have cold sweats.

And I can just tap my credit card and pay for things?

It's too much.

But all the things I learned will soon be gone.

Like the OG Toys 'R Us.

Time to say farewell...

What do we writers always say?

The truth is far stranger than fiction.

When we watch a movie there is constantly a scene where people are like... "THAT could never happen!"

Well it could and it has.

And there is more truths and facts throughout life just like fiction.

There is so much more to learn beyond science classes in school.

Wikipedia has educated us all.

Truth is truth.

So let's hear some facts that'll surprise us.

It's been so long.
