Sex with a Scorpio



To understand a Scorpio man or woman’s sexual love nature, just keep the following three key facts in mind:-

Scorpio is a WATER SIGN, so it’s sensitive, empathic and highly intuitive, and like all the Water Signs needs relationships that are based a strong emotional rapport. Scorpio is also a FIXED SIGN, which means it’s capable of formidable sticking power but also a good deal of inflexibility. Finally Scorpio is ruled by PLUTO, the planet that symbolizes power, depth, intensity and transformation. From there everything else follows on:-


There’s something irresistibly hypnotic about Scorpios that gives them an extraordinary sexual magnetism. With those penetrating eyes that seem to see straight through to your soul, they can quickly gain a strange kind of sexual hold over you. It’s dangerously easy to fall madly in love with this Star Sign. It's much harder, however, to get a Scorpio to fall in love with you.

You see, the average Scorpio makes it quite difficult for others to get close to them. Because trust doesn’t come easily to this Sign, it takes a lot for Scorpios to open up and lower their defenses, giving them an air of mystery and reserve which can be very sexually attractive and compelling. The challenge of finding out what lies beneath Scorpio’s icy cool self-control is what hooks many people in.

If Scorpios give the impression of being emotionally cold and calculating at times, it’s only because they experience things so intensely and they’re terrified of getting hurt. Still waters run deep – and as the Fixed Water Sign, Scorpio’s true feelings are powerful, all-consuming and profound. In reality this is the most passionate Star Sign, with a well-earned reputation as the Zodiac’s most accomplished lover. 

Scorpios' sexual stamina is legendary, and it’s often said that once you’ve made love with a Scorpio, any other Sign will always be second best. Sex, for Scorpio, is something to be taken seriously – a path to the ecstasy of spiritual oneness achieved through mutual surrender. It’s also a vital release for the pent-up emotions which Scorpios find so hard to express, for which reason sex is something most of them need lots of in their life.

What you need to understand is that, when a Scorpio has fully committed to love, they’re capable of great sexual loyalty and devotion. In their eyes, it’s forever, and with their all or nothing approach, they can be pretty obsessive. The greater a Scorpio's sense of insecurity – which will depend on how much they’ve been hurt in the past – the more likely it is that this Sign's notorious jealousy and need for control will tend to surface.

For some, Scorpio’s full-on approach can be a huge sexual turn-on. For others it’s a bit too hot to handle and the source of a lot of anguish. Cross swords with those born under the Sign of the Scorpion and you’ll always come out the loser. The only way to deal with their emotional neediness is to offer them ongoing reassurance and concrete proof of your love – and boy, do they take some convincing!


Scorpios aren’t normally the type to indulge in a lot of sexual infidelity. Due to their deep need for security, what they seek from their relationships is commitment and permanence, (change and experimentation aren’t really their scene). Usually, the only time a Scorpio tends to stray is as payback for a partner’s cheating. As the Star Sign that finds it hardest to forgive and forget, Scorpio will never allow itself to come off worst in a relationship break-down and will always get its revenge in the end.


Scorpio's sexual style generally clicks best firstly with Taurus, Cancer and Pisces, and secondly with Virgo and Capricorn. It tends to clash most with Leo and Aquarius.
