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 Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.

One last time. One last meal.

How do you chose a last meal?

Let's hope we never have to find out.

People on death row get that option.

Do they deserve it?

Whose to say?

But they have it.

A steak. A pizza... Burger King.

The food world is their oyster.

Oyster. Also an option.

The menu is endless...

People Break Down The Exact Moment They Realized Their Friends Were A-Holes

Most people have friends they've been close to for most of their lives.

Most of the time, this isn't intentional, but just simply happens.

On rare occasions though, people might realize that their friends were not exactly who they thought they were, and didn't like who they revealed themselves to be.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.
