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."

"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."

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."

Puitzza

"Or sleeping in a cold blanket in summer."

I am enthralled by all of those things.

Warning: Potential spoilers ahead.

Ever since I watched Grave of the Fireflies for the first time, I can't get that ending out of my head.

An undoubtedly depressing story about a young boy taking care of his younger sister in the aftermath of the atomic bombings of Japan, the film offers a very stark picture of what society was like for those whose lives were upended only to later succumb to radiation sickness.

Did I mention that it's an anime? The artwork is incredible.

The film is well worth a watch... if you don't mind shedding a tear or two.

Married Couples Explain What They Wish Single Folks Knew About Relationships

Some people prefer being single. They don't have to answer to anybody, they can play by their own rules, and they can continue going about their day-to-day without accommodating the needs of a significant other.

But that status of perpetual independence can eventually hit a breaking point.

It makes one wonder while being single can be a convenience, are we meant to live alone forever?

Unfortunately, avidly seeking out a relationship is a hit or miss, so an individual's situation can be out of their control.

People Break Down Which Older Horror Movies Still Hold Up Today
Warner Bros.

Some horror films will never grow old. It's October! Get into the horror film spirit.

There are so many classics worth seeing. Last year, a friend of mine who had never seen too many horror films asked me if we could get together so they could enjoy some classics.

Of course we had to watch the original Halloween. They loved it. I wish I could once again experience what it was like to watch that movie for the first time. Living vicariously through their experience was well worth it, though. And there are plenty more horror films out there for you to enjoy!

People Break Down The Most Shocking Confessions From Someone They Barely Know

When you're just starting to get to know someone, there are number of typical "icebreaker" conversations people tend to use to get to know one another.

Favorite films, books and tv shows, recent travel, hobbies, all shared in the hope of finding common interests.

If things seem to be going well, people often begin to get comfortable enough to move past the generic questions and begin to get more personal.

Which can prove to be a risky endeavor, as some intimate information might end up being revealed, which the receiving party wasn't quite ready to hear.
