You don't have to be the richest person in the world to seek and obtain pleasures in life.

One of those urges is the act of sex.

While there is no worthy substitute for acting on our inherent sensual desires and reaching a state of euphoria, would you be willing to sacrifice making love for something greater?


Curious to hear where people place their value in life, Redditor serrafinagal asked:

"What would you give up sex for?"

People who truly found love share their thoughts.

Loving Reunion

"To have my best friend and soul mate which is my wife back by my side."

– StraightSho

The Grieving Spouse

"To have my husband back. Life is so empty without him…even after 11 years."

– VioletSea13

Faithful

"My spouse. I'd rather not but if something happened I wouldn't leave him over a lack of sex."

– LastAcrossFinishHare

"Same. If my partner was to get sick or for any reason our relationship was 'sexless' I wouldn’t think twice about staying with him. Until my last day."

– Gaijin-cat-herder

The things that matter most easily trump carnal desires.

Life Itself

"To continue living, and I've done it. When you have advanced prostate cancer, you need to be castrated. That takes away all ability, interest, the works."

– Scrappy_Larue

Redditors shared the things in life they could use more of.

It Can't Buy You Love

"Money. A lot of money."

– Dangerous_Concept341

Different Kind Of Dough

"garlic bread."

– Wall_enjoyer

"cake, lots of cake."

– misconfigbackspace

Having Food On The Table

"Not starving to death is also pretty dope."

– Vomath

An Upgrade

"Sex 2.0"

– Verlepte

"Not worth it. It's just sex 1.0 but in dark blue and slightly better reception."

– its_a_gibibyte

Aside from the more humorous responses, the thread was flooded with Redditors ultimately choosing their loved ones–or genuine love in general–over sex.

Who knew Reddit had a deep, romantic side?

People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor spwf asked the online community,

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Levels2ThisBrush asked the online community,

"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
