21 Things That Are Way Better Than Sex
Oh don't pretend you don't agree.
Sex can be good. It can also be mind-blowing. But there are few other feelings in life that are - *bold claim alert* - even better.
Like these 21 feelings that are just as good, if not actually more enjoyable, than getting down to it...
1. When someone plays with your hair
Let's be real, the free head massage is literally the only reason any of us bother to get our hair cut on a regular basis.
2. Taking your bra off at the end of the day
If you're a gal then you'll know just how freeing unleashing the girls from the iron-vice shackles of your push-up feels.
3. Finally scratching that impossible to reach itch
And we don't even mean that in a sexy way.
4. Doing a wee when you are absolutely-about-to-piss-yourself desperate
OH SWEET RELIEF.
5. Sliding into cool, crisp sheets when you've had the world's longest day
Aka the best place on this whole entire earth.
6. When someone you fancy the shit out of flirts with you
Those butterflies, sly smiles and the anticipation of getting down to it is sometimes even better than the deed itself. Sorry not sorry.
7. Washing your hair when it's greasy as hell
The hot water and the soap lathering away all the grime you've been too lazy to deal with for the last three days? PURE BLISS.
8. Being really snug and warm in bed spooning someone when it's chucking it down outside
Your coccoon of warmth > putting the P in that other coccoon of warmth. *WINK WINK NUDGE NUDGE*
9. The way it smells after a rain storm in summer
If heaven had a smell, this would be it. All fresh and peaceful and warm.
10. When you finally manage to get that seed out of your teeth
If we asked you whether you'd rather always have a seed in your teeth or never have sex again, we know which you'd pick.
11. Finding an unexpected £20 in your pocket
Like a crumpled gift you accidentally left yourself when you stopped wearing your coat last spring.
12. Slicing through wrapping paper
You know the moment when the scissors just start to glide? That.
13. Getting the better of someone who's treated you like crap
Call us petty, but getting the one up on *that* one person who singlehandedly fuels your inner hate fire is a truly beautiful thing.
14. That moment right before you fall asleep
You know when you're so blissed out and relaxed that you know you're about to drop over the edge into a haze of sleep? De-licious.
15. Taking your heels off at the end of the night
And feeling your toes relax from throbbing claws into something that once again resemble human feet.
16. Having an armful of puppies or kittens
Babies have nothing on the pure joy of a lap full of teeny tiny balls of squishy, squeaking animals.
The exact moment that follows the pang of pure terror that you accidentally sent that text slagging someone off straight to them. Sweet, sweeeet relief.
18. Waking up after you've slept so long that you can't sleep any more
And you're all hazy and warm and life just feels like the best it could ever be.
19. Peeling dried PVA glue off your hand
Apparently the more grown up version of this is peeling a blackhead mask off your nose. Either way, we're so in to it we sometimes have dreams about how satisfying it feels.
20. That feeling of having absolutely nothing to do today
As 90s R&B sensation Ultra Nate might say, you're freeee to be who you want to be and it god damn rules.
21. When someone fully loses it at your joke
They think you're FUNNY and COOL and you feel as close to being Justin Bieber as you ever will. Finally life makes sense and you want to live in this moment forever and ever, amen.
