Numerous women claim one of the best sensations is getting into a clean bed. One woman says she loves the silky physical sensation of the sheets feeling a bit stiffer, especially after a shower with freshly shaved legs.

Another made me laugh out loud by confessing, “I call that sexy cricket time ’cause I can never stop rubbing my legs against each other under the sheets.” I’ve never called it that, but I do it, and now I’ll always think of this comment. It is the most incredible feeling.

2. Sneezing Tingles

Do you know that fizzy feeling in your nose, building up to a great sneeze? A woman explains, “It gets fizzier and fizzier and then -! Sneeze!!” That is a physical sensation countless women agree to enjoy. On the contrary, it’s one of the worst feelings when it builds up and doesn’t deliver.

3. A Head Massage

Someone playing with your hair, brushing it, running their fingers through it — is the greatest feeling. One notes, “I could let them do that all day.” Me too! I’m fortunate to have a toddler and a teen who likes to brush my hair and a husband that gives me scalp scratch tingles. This right here is the best.

14. A Back Massage
