Personally, I have always felt that there is nothing more hedonistic than giving. Of course it might be a luxury that is not available to everyone, and that is why I pointed to individual circumstances in my original post. It would be a wonderful aim, and quite a Laytonesque one at that, to provide that luxury to everyone.
Most hedonist I would believe think the opposite of that. In living life in pursuit of there own pleasure and self-gratification, it is more than easy to be mean spirited and manipulate others around you to achieve this self pleasure. If you mean that nothing feels better than giving then I agree.
