We all know sex can be awesome, but let's face it -- when knee-deep in the single life, it's not always what you would call "mind blowing."

In fact, we can think of several things more mind-blowing than getting sweaty with someone else. And it turns out, we aren't alone in this sentiment. A Reddit thread popped up Tuesday asking users to list items or activities that they believe are better than sex.

See 15 of the best responses below:

  1. "When I walk through the front door and my dog is SUPER PUMPED to see me."
  2. "Oh man, taking off your work boots and slipping on a pair of sneakers to drive home in is one of the simplest and greatest pleasures I have known. I almost wish I still worked in construction just for that one part of every day."
  3. "Really good Thai food!"
  4. "The sound of the bottle cap when you open that fresh beer. Mmmmm."
  5. "Getting into bed with freshly shaved legs and clean sheets."
  6. "Coming home from work and seeing my son, and him being very excited seeing me. When he yells 'DADDY!' it fills me up with immense joy."
  7. "Taking a hot shower on a really cold day."
  8. "Using the word literally correctly."
  9. "Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie. Yup."
  10. "Coffee. Nothing else compares to the sweet nectar of life. Also, my family's homemade maple syrup."
  11. "A really good steak is definitely better than sex. Not all steak, but certainly the best steak."
  12. "Laying in bed in an air-conditioned room after a nice shower."
  13. "Good bbq. Slow cooked w/ just the right amount of smoke. I love it."
  14. "Tax refunds."
