The question is not whether it's possible, but why it's desirable.

>See how soon everything is forgotten, and look at the chaos of infinite time on each side of the present, and the emptiness of applause, and the changeableness and want of judgement in those who pretend to give praise, and the narrowness of the space within which it is circumscribed, and be quiet at last. For the whole earth is a point, and how small a nook in it is this thy dwelling, and how few are there in it, and what kind of people are they who will praise thee.

reminder that hedonism is taking seriously
-- the desires
--the aversion towards pains
--the avidity towards pleasures
--the experiences of pains and pleasures themselves

and you think that these desires, pains, pleasures matter, because you think that your identity exists and goes through them.


sex is the foremost activity in which hedonists identify themselves, then comes other pleasures such as foods, travels, music, cars, the various cravings of avoiding pains through accomodation, medecines...

as soon as you leave hedonism, you embrace a doctrine which explicitly deals with the desires. the most famous doctrines hold the principle of equanimity/equipoise/ataraxia as one of the highest principle: this is what the liberals who are more hedonistic than anything else will never understand.
