It's difficult to come up with 50 things that are truly better than intimate, hot, passionate sexy sex. I've been thinking about this for a while, and I decided that kissing, blow jobs, and intercourse were all, technically, sex. So, I came up with this list of 50 things that feel, taste, or are almost -- at least sometimes -- better than sex.
Please, add to the list!
1. Cleaning your ears with Q-tips.
2. Peeing on a full bladder.
3. Watching your kid score (a goal).
4. Skydiving, especially in the free fall.
5. This video of a purring kitten making biscuits. (And no, this is not the least bit sexual.)
6. A long foot massage.
7. A good spin class, but only after it's done.
8. The steam room.
9. The Chocolate Chip Philly Fluff Cake from The Bakery. Yes, it's called "The Bakery" and, as far as I'm concerned, it's the best bakery ever.
10. When the stylist gives you a shampoo and deep condition.
