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?

There are those who say that going through a hard or unpleasant experience is what makes you stronger, and able to live your life more happily.

But there are very few people who don't have one memory of an experience that they wish they could forget... or even wish never happened in the first place.

Redditor Lord_Lazignac was curious to learn of experiences people had which continue to traumatize them to this day, leading them to ask:

Dear parents born in the 80s/90s :

Your child is probably (we never really know for sure) not a weed dealer.
