It's hard to beat great sex.

But, particularly for singletons, sex isn't always easy to come by.

Then too, as far too may people know, there is also never a guarantee that sex is going to be great.

Luckily, sex is far from the only known form of pleasure.

Some might even say there are other things which are even more pleasurable than sex, and likely much easier to come by.

Redditor sparklingshanaya was curious to learn the things people find as or more pleasurable than sex, leading them to ask:

"What is an alternative but equivalent pleasure to sex?"

For those of you going through a dry spell, maybe consider giving some of these a try.

Or who knows, maybe you'll soon discover a sensation which makes you miss sex a little bit less.

Or completely.

Narcissism is never a particularly attractive quality.

Which is rather ironic, considering narcissists believe they are simply the be all and end all, that everyone wants them or wants to be them.

Yet spending extended periods of time with people who are so egregiously obsessed with themselves can be simply exhausting, as they frequently find a way of veering the conversation back to themselves.

Making it all the more tempting to give them a taste of their own medicine, and find a way to annoy them.

With more and more unfortunate stories about misconduct in the news, there is an understandably low opinion of police officers in the United States.

The term "fan" is believed to be derived from "fanatic" or "fanatical.

Meaning "a person filled with excessive and single-minded zeal".

Resulting in the birth of such monikers as "Trekkies", "Beliebers", or "Cumberb*tches."

And while these passionate, some might say obsessive, fan bases often find compatriots at conventions, premieres and meet-ups, those unfamiliar with the apples of their respective eyes might be confused by their level of fandom, if not down right annoyed.

Usually when we meet someone for the first time whether at a social function, at work, or randomly in public, we generally have a good Spidey sense about the type of person they are.

Even with alcohol in the mix, our instincts can be dulled but we still continue engaging with someone who seems outgoing and friendly enough at the bar.

But we also have the ability to tell right away if that person doesn't have good intentions.
