5 Things Every Hedonist Needs in His Life

My name is Jordan Belfort. I’m a former member of the middle class raised by two accountants in a tiny apartment in Bayside, Queens. The year I turned 26, as the head of my own brokerage firm, I made $49 million, which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week.

ave you heard the famous DiCaprio’s quote in The Wolf of the Wall Street yet?
What’s coming to your mind now? Money? Fame? Power? While it would be awesome to be as rich as Jordan Belfort was, there’s more to his life than it meets the eye; some of you may have figured it out by now.

It’s hedonism. Oxford Dictionaries defines it as a noun describing the pursuit of pleasure, as well as sensual self-indulgence.

Before you jump to a conclusion that being a hedonist requires much more money on a bank account than you can make in a lifetime, let’s forget about the wallets for a second. The truth is, hedonism is much more about the approach to life than anything else.

The car industry never sleeps. So, unless you are really good at keeping up with the latest trends of all automobile marques, it can be hard to guess who is coming up with the fanciest model next.

However, every true hedonist knows that the real story behind the super-cool cars lies in the past.

Vintage cars aren’t just trapped in the old Hollywood black and white films. Buying one of the all-time sexiest sports cars is a once-in-a-lifetime investment that will bring back the times when iconic stars such as Marilyn Monroe and Marlon Brando ruled the entertainment industry. And, who wouldn’t like to experience that?

You see, it’s really not about the price tag. It’s about the feeling that you’ll have once you drive one of these to your garage.

Personalized Cocktail Shaker

A personalized cocktail shaker is the perfect gift for hedonists.

If you have seen The Wolf of the Wall Street, then you know that, when it comes to parties, little was left to the imagination.

Of course, there is no need for you to go THAT far with your party, but adding some extra sexy moments to the atmosphere will make your next celebration unforgettable.

Let your imagination fly and make a list of personalized party items you’d like to have before you send invitations to your friends. Considering that these days you can literally personalize almost anything, the list might be longer than you think. So, play smart. If your birthday, or perhaps your marriage anniversary, is coming up, start telling your friends about items available in the online store with personalized gifts.

For example, is there anything better than a personalized cocktail shaker. That’s because hardly anything else will impress your wife, girlfriend, or a lover, more than a scene where you, wearing a casual white shirt, demonstrate your talent for making a perfect cocktail with your name on it. That’s how masters in the field of hedonism start the seduction games.

Be assured that you’ll have a long night ahead.

Sex Toys for Both Genders

Spice things up with sex toys.

The party may be over for your friends, but that’s when a true hedonist peaks. Once you say your goodbyes, it’s time for you and your partner to party alone.

Conventional sex is great, but every once in a while, you need to be bold in bed. Consider owning a wide range of sex toys and use them as secret weapons that only the people you bring to your bedroom will know about.

Don’t be shy with these. Playing with sex toys for both genders will bring your sex life to whole new level.

And what about your vintage car? A true hedonist is always in search for the next perfect place to have sex.

Personal Recipe Journal

Recipe books can be a prized possession for every hedonist.

You see, being a hedonist doesn’t always require significant financial investment.

Learn to cook. Then start writing down your favorite recipes. If you spend a lot of time in the gym, make sure you follow the nutrition rules that will assist you in becoming the best possible version of yourself.

While all hedonists enjoy eating, you really don’t need to look like you have a beer belly.

A blank cookbook opens the horizon of new opportunities for you.

Open Mind

Keep your mind open to new things.

The “must have” list for hedonists is practically endless. However, there’s one thing you must never forget.

Be open-minded. All the time.

Life is a long journey and you’d regret missing out on all the wonderful chances along the way just because somewhere down the road you closed your mind.

For a hedonist, nothing is impossible. As a hedonist, you need to strive for the new experiences throughout your whole life. That’s only possible if you open your mind towards the ultimate idea of unlimited freedom.
