In the expansive world of fluid dynamics, fluid flow can occasionally be idealized by Bernoulli's Equation, which states*p + 0.5(ρV^2) + ρgh *must be constant along a streamline, where *p* is pressure, *ρ* is the density, *V* is the flow velocity, *g* is the acceleration due to gravity, and *h* is height. However, this equation can also be used to generalize the ideal boyfriend. In order for a flow to be idealized by the equation, the flow must be:

- Steady, which means that the fluid flow rate is constant. Similarly, a boyfriend that follows Bernoulli’s Equation would be steady, reliable, and constant along any path of the streamline.
- Incompressible, which means that the fluid is not able to be compressed by the flow. Usually, it is appreciated that romantic partners are not compressible.
- Non-viscous, which means that the flow has unvarying density and can be assumed to not suffer energy loss from internal friction. This is typically a good trait for humans to have in the bedroom as well.
