Having sex is a great feeling, on this we can all agree. Is it the greatest feeling on earth? It’s probably up there, but these simple pleasures come pretty close (but it’s less appropriate to make celebratory moaning noises while doing them, just a heads up):
Pulling a strand of hair out of your butt crack after a shower
Why are a few strands *guaranteed* to get trapped there? Why does it feel *so* good to pull them out? We don’t know, but we secretly love it.
When your hair dries perfectly
Leaving the house with wet hair is a gamble few of us can afford. Who knows how your fringe is doing to dry today or whether your curls are going to behave? Sometimes the stars align and you catch your reflection in a mirror later on in the day and see that not only has your hair dried but it looks good too?!
Your crush following you on social media
A friend request, a follow back on Twitter, whatever it is, getting some sort of approval from your crush gives you a thrill that almost feels as good as an orgasm. Almost.
Going through a whole menstrual cycle without ruining any panties
It’s practically a given that you’re going to mess up at least one pair of previously unstained panties during your period. The cost of replacing blood-stained underwear every month is almost as painful as actual period pains. Some months you manage to pull it off though and, God, it feels good. Bonus points if you braved wearing white panties.
Dunking your rusk for just the right amount of time
There are milliseconds between dunking for too short (and biting into it has you worried about your fillings) and too long (giving you a soggy mess that gets into your tea and makes your last sip disgusting and crumb-filled). When you nail the perfect amount of sogginess, that’s amore.
Clearing all of your notifications
That feeling when you’ve caught up with everything and no longer have any little red notifications everywhere is *so* satisfying.
A freshly shaved pair of legs
In 2017 we don’t shave for a man’s benefit, duh. We shave so we get to run our hands up and down our legs for the next 24 hours admiring our own smoothness (and because it feels really good to put lotion on hairless legs, damn).
Feeling super hairy legs
On the other side of the shaving spectrum is that sweet spot where your hairs aren’t bristly anymore and are long enough to lie flat. You could spend ages smoothing the soft hairs down with your hands while being silently impressed with the amount of hair you never knew you had it in you to grow.
Taking the lift all the way to your floor
When you get in the lift and it goes straight up to your floor without stopping at any other floors? That’s hot.
Getting your period after it’s been late
You never thought you’d be so happy to see blood until you’ve spent a day or two stressing that you could possibly be pregnant.
We love sex but let’s be honest, nobody does it better than you. Sometimes self-love is way more fun; you are, after all, the most efficient and informed lover you’ve ever been with after all.
