A common expression when something is amazing is “it’s better than sex”. What would you replace “sex” with to make this saying apply to you?

I use it when I’m having a bad day. My cat got a spider bite and I blew out a tire on the way to the vet, but hey, it’s better than sex!

Hot shower after walking home through the snow and cold after a long day at work.


Songwolves88

My wife and I once walked through over a foot of snow while it was still snowing to go get ice cream. When we got home I was overheated so I stripped naked and ate ice cream.


meowkitty84

Cats? Or food. Or drugs even, as someone who's been clean for a few years.


Isoiata

Hey congrats on your sobriety! 😊


davidducker

better than having hundreds of people chanting your name after you suplex your opponent on the concrete


trainman1000

Better than a really good grilled cheese


Privateaccount84

Best I’ve had was with havarti cheese.


Songwolves88

I make a grilled ham and cheese with 3 different types of cheese layered between thin slices of ham. I think I used havarti in it once, but it wasnt very good havarti.


Abomination-626

It better be amazing then

"better than sex" + "best thing since sliced bread" = "better than garlic bread" perfect

It's better than being financially stable


Anaglyphite

Better than that feeling of finally completing that project you worked on for weeks/months that turned out to be some of your best work


aMostVehementG

Completing some esoteric, long worked project.


DismalVariation702

Coffee ☕️


WickedAdept

I don't feel like there ***can be*** anything better, than a piece of cake, tea and a long fulfilling intellectual conversation with a wise, knowledgeable and pleasant interlocutor, that shares your sense of humour while both of you are at best of your game, not having to struggle the worst of mental health issues, tiredness and financial insecurity...


small_roo

it’s better than pasta. garlic bread and cake are great and all, but pasta with cheese is simple to make and tasty!

Lemon butter


Emotional-Shirt7901

Ohh??? I’ve never heard of that!


I_serve_Anubis

Have you heard of lemon curd ? It’s really the same thing, the type I make is thicker then the average curd though. It can be spread on toast, fill tart shells, used as cake frosting etc


Emotional-Shirt7901

Oh yum, yeah I’ve had lemon curd, that sounds so good!! :)

TheAsexualPup

Money. You can get 95% of things you need and the rest 5% is your physical and mental health to keep you happy.


ApocalyptoSoldier

Better than flipping your pillow to the cold side


Ranaenae707

garlic breaddddd


_Lisichka_

As a kid, my mom, sister, and I would alternate giving each other back massages and "tickle and scratch" and it was just super relaxing. So I'd say that haha For those that don't know, "tickle and scratch" is like a very light rubbing on your back that is almost ticklish followed by scratching to clear out the ticklish feeling. My mom used it to get us to calm down and go to sleep since you'd have to lie still while she rubbed your back.


TundraTaurus

I play a game with my kids where we say we love each other more than X (something you really, really like). Stuff like "I love you more than cartoons" and "I love you more than riding bikes" They know I'm really serious when I say "I love you more than chocolate" or "I love you more than I hate mosquitoes"


Privateaccount84

Oh, I know that game… (nsfw language) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iaAKNjYhWg0


noonsta_cat

I use a similar expression for many situations "Visual/olphative/auditive orgasm" although I've never had an orgasm.

Now I would say better than dogs but nothing beats dogs, so I'd probably say better than my dad's pancakes.


boyz_for_now

100% nothing beats dogs =)


dasspaceace

LOL funnily enough, the sentence works just as it is for me. Prior to finding out aro & ace were things, let alone that they applied to me, I had multiple long-term partners. For me, sex wasn't awful. It was enjoyable, but not anymore so than anything else I enjoy. So for me, the word sex doesn't need replacing.

Not ace but I'd be tickled to see ace folks do a 180 with the "better than sex" phrase. Something like : "I was throwing up all night. It was gross... Still better than sex thou! "


Edvindenbest

It's better than perfectly cooked peeled potatoes with butter and spice


1LoveTwoHearts

Better than carbs. IMO I wouldn't say sleep, because I have never felt well-rested for several years now. It's a struggle to even function daily without relying on caffeine.

Honestly this is partly why I thought being ace was the norm and people just liked to compare and exaggerate. Because even allos will go "mmm OMG! This cake is soo good! It's amazing - better than sex, I swear." Sooooo yeah....
