A great shampoo
I’m not sure I like anything better than a great shampoo. I once had a stylist with long, strong fingers with which she massaged and scrubbed my scalp without stopping for nearly the entire shampoo. Strong fingers and not stopping after a few strokes, that’s the key to a great shampoo. And that “not stopping” is one of the keys to great sex, too. Funny, that.
Playing with puppies or kittens
There’s nothing like cuteness overload, that “awwww!” factor of playful baby animals. So frisky as they frolic, so adorable, so innocent and sooo much fun. The popularity of toy breeds tells me that many of us wish they could stay small forever.
Don’t you just love it when you need a good back scratch and there’s someone around who can do it? They have yet to make a back scratcher as good as the real thing. Because when you need a good back scratch, well, you neeeed it.
And again, it’s not stopping that makes a back scratch good. So far that’s true of shampoos, back scratches and sex.
Endorphin rush after a big cardio session
Even though I’m blessed with an abundance of serotonin, I do love a good rush. A heavy cardio session with great rock and roll playing often gives me a rush better than any drug.
A piece of chocolate cake
I mean it and not just because I’ve been doing a Whole 60 and haven’thad chocolate cake in a really long time.
Regardless. A yummy piece of chocolate cake is better than sex. (Eat enough of them and you may never again have sex with anyone but yourself….)
The hug of a small child
On Christmas Eve two little kids came up and hugged me, independently. Seriously heart-tugging moments that made the holiday for me.
Maybe you’ll say that nothing is better than sex….but set that aside for a minute. Maybe you’ve got some things that are almost better than sex. Share what you might add to this list.
