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?"


Always a relief.

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.

Some people truly think the world revolves around them, which is why it's so satisfying to see them get what they want.

Consider: When was the last time you saw someone in public freak out in a store and demand to speak to the manager? Did the manager acquiese? Or did they stand up for their employees?

We're used to hearing about employees getting the short end of the stick, of course. But the moments when things go the other way—and a terrible nuisance finds themselves unable to get what they want—is truly a sight to behold.

In short: Saying "no" or putting people in their place is the ultimate power move.

Considering how much money these films make, I understand that I am in the minority when I say that Marvel films have absolutely overstayed their welcome. What once seemed fairly innovative—the current generation of the MCU really took off when Iron Man proved to be a tremendous hit—now feels stale.

I accept it, though. These films are not for me and never have been. That's okay. But it'd be great if we could have more room for other great blockbuster films other than yet another superhero movie.

"What franchise has been milked to death?"

We've all displayed embarrassing behavior or actions at one point or another, and we can't seem to shake off the regretful moment.

It just replays in our minds like an endless boomerang.

We are equally embarrassed for those who may have done something spontaneously foolish and have no clue of the mortifying impact of their actions.

Sex. It's great, but there can be a lot of drama involved.

We're human, how could there not be?

One way to make it easy is to say the right name when you're in the heat of things.

Seriously, we know this sounds like a small thing, but it's monumentally important.

Make sure you know your date's name.

If you don't, take your date to Starbucks and have it written on their cup.

It might be REALLY important later in the evening.
