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."

– Wall_enjoyer

"cake, lots of cake."

– misconfigbackspace

Having Food On The Table

"Not starving to death is also pretty dope."

– Vomath

"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.

There is no bigger mystery than what happens to us after we die.

But even those who don't practice an organized religion tend to believe that there is a Heaven, a happy joyful place where our souls will remain for eternity.

No two people share the same idea of what heaven would be like, but everyone who believes in it probably has an idea of the first thing they'd do after entering the pearly gates.

Redditor WeDidItGuyz was curious to hear what would be top on everyone's list upon entering the afterlife, leading them to ask:

"If heaven exists, what’s the first thing you’d do?"

"Fun facts" generally refers to a tidbit of information about a specific topic which the general public might not have otherwise known about.

But the first word in that term can be misleading.

Indeed, some "fun facts" reveal information that isn't remotely "fun" in the slightes.

Redditor Alternative_kachocho was curious to hear some "fun facts" which were anything but fun, leading them to ask:

What's a 'fun fact' that isn’t fun at all?"

It's amazing how one change to your lifestyle can improve your daily life.

Be it starting your day with yoga, eliminating foods that don't agree with you, or simply seeing your friends more often, something we're all eager to do after months of quarantine, it's amazing how one little change can make waking up and getting through your day more bearable.

Perhaps the only frustration that comes with this change, is that you only wished you'd started doing it sooner.

Redditor kxrllkxrll was curious to hear what hobbies, rituals or lifestyle choices people wished they'd gotten a head start on, leading them to ask:

"What improved your life so much, you wished you did sooner?"
