Look, sex is cool and all, but have you ever experienced the incredible feeling of removing your shoes after walking around a theme park all day? Because it's truly ~orgasmic.~
Well, this week Reddit user GunnerJM truly understood that feeling and asked, "What's a non-sexual moment equivalent of an orgasm?", and WHEW BUDDY, there are some A+ responses.
Here are just a few of the most ~intensely satisfying~ feelings in the world:
1. "When you wake up on a Saturday morning with the sun streaking through the curtains, thinking you missed your alarm, and the realization hits you...there was no alarm, and there will be NO alarm."
2. "When the event you didn't want to go to gets canceled."
3. "That feeling you get sometime between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. on a Friday evening when you realize you don't have work in the morning."
4. "Getting in bed after a very long, exhausting day. The sheets seem to cuddle and caress you like a lover."
5. "Peeling the screen protector off of a new device."
6. "When your paycheck, bonus, and tax return hits your bank account on the same day."
7. "When you get more than five green lights in a row."
8. "Being insanely thirsty and chugging cool water."
9. "Cleaning your ears with Q-tips. Sometimes it feels so good that I unintentionally moan a little bit."
10. "When my ex-girlfriend used to wake up during the night and she'd reach for my hand to make sure I was still there."
11. "Blowing your nose just after a cold. That feeling of goop coming out and being able to breathe better."
12. "A hairdresser washing your hair and massaging your scalp...holy heck, that's the best feeling."
13. "When you're cutting wrapping paper and the scissors start gliding."
14. "Sliding into clean, cool bedsheets after you've JUST shaved your legs."
15. "Finally remembering something (a word, the title of a song or movie, etc.) after you couldn't for a while."
16. "Driving with the windows down on the first 60+ degree day of the year after a long winter and smelling barbecue from somewhere in the neighborhood."
17. "When the bit of water that was stuck in your ear finally comes out."
18. "Handing someone a gift you worked really hard on, only to see their face light up when they realize that they're loved and appreciated by someone. There is nothing more satisfying in the world then to see someone with a genuine smile on their face and know that you are the reason behind it."
19. "When you finish writing that one essay and are able to close the 12 productivity tabs you had open on your computer."
20. "Getting a 'math-gasm' from solving an insanely hard problem when it finally clicks into understanding."
21. "Taking your bra off as soon as you get home from work."
