Clean Sheet-ology: Sexing Scorpio Up

by Nola Summers

Scorpio: Sex is empowering: good sex, all powerful to the Scorpion. It's a way of life. There is no such thing as "I don't feel like it." Only variations of "I don't feel like it right now, with you."

Scorpio, often misunderstood, has shouldered much bad press. The biggest misconception here is that the Scorpion is promiscuous -- flitting about from post to portal. Not so. Being in touch with your own needs and not being afraid of them is a plus -- and good for you for helping lusty Scorpio on their road to fulfillment. There's just one thing; if you think you were the initiator -- think again -- more likely the initiated, the chosen, the decided upon -- however you want to dress it up, you were still the one undressed. You may have floated through Scorpio's line of vision 10 minutes or 10 days ago, but be assured that you have been thoroughly fucked already. Remember that over-heated feeling you experienced when you found yourself caught in their "see right through you stare"? Got you, now they're going to have you.

The public face of a Scorpio relationship rarely reflects the private goings on. That seemingly subservient Scorpio female might just be packing the perfect little strap-on under that sexy dress. She will either fascinate or frighten the people she comes across as she metes out her looks of destruction or desire. Often dominating, emotionally demanding, and possessive, once possessed, her chosen partners want nothing more than to be owned -- completely.

The Scorpio male is totally masculine, even while being ridden. If you are applying strokes to his pliant ass, stop to wonder if it's submission on his part or a subversive nurturing of your dominance fueled by the simmering danger that lies just below his surface. He will, in a carefully planned way, bring out the most sensual in any partner.

Scorpio's erogenous zone is the genitals. Scorpio's underpants could be described as always at a slow burn (if they've even got them on) but the breath that ignites that flame resides squarely up top in that quietly dark deep mind.

Want to catch or keep this mysterious being? Don't fake it -- they'll know. Don't pretend to listen -- they'll know. Life is sex...repeat after is life, life is sex.


There is a hot immediate attraction here. Aries' willingness to experiment fits nicely with Scorpio's "whatever works is good" attitude. Scorpio will even buy Aries his own high-heels and lacy underpants so hers don't get stretched out. Aries can come first, and sometimes be the only one coming, but making a habit of that will soon leave Aries coming alone.


Strong like a bull -- let's go again. Now what? Okay, let's go again. Taurus has the stamina to keep up, but who owns who here? Okay, let's go again. Taurus, pay complete attention...or you're not going again.


Gemini, that old split-personality, is enthused by the Scorpion's obvious insatiability, but driven to distraction with the thought that someone else might be in the driver's seat when he's not there. Scorpio is confused by this as Gemini appears totally committed one day and oblivious the next. There's no denying the outright lust, but seatbelts and crash helmets may be needed to stay the course. Nothing breaks up a long journey like a good hard fuck on the side of the road though -- especially when you know there's a comfy warm bed waiting for you both when you do eventually get there.


A little possessiveness goes a long way -- a bit like a leash and collar you can wear to the grocery store. Scorpio happily interprets Cancer's jealousy as love, and welcomes the accompanying passivity as a cozy fit to that undeniable need to control.


The physical attraction here is huge -- and size does matter -- this is not a piece of cake we're taking about. Ego problems abound, clashes of will, fights over lubes, and paddles, silk ties or cord, big plugs, butt plugs, latex, rubber, paddles, your turn, my turn, the list goes on and on.


Virgo's restrained nature appeals somewhat to Scorpio's demonstrative side. While restrained, Virgo accepts the limitations, and doesn't struggle or shout over the gag, and the simple act of not fighting touches Scorpio's psyche in a special way. At last -- someone who understands that they are simply not in charge.


Libra loves odd people, and Scorpio's stand-out appeal makes Libra want to add him or her to their collection. But we know by now that that is simply not going to work here.


These two approach each other like they're first in line at an all-you-can-eat buffet -- but overeating eventually gives you a big belly ache -- and soon enough nobody will be rubbing anyone's tummy. With the open-mindedness of both, you would think it would work, but it can't.


The temptation is so great on Scorpio's part to fulfill all of the fantasies that willing Sag wants filled. Problem is, this would just make Sag happy as could be, and more inclined to get out there in the big world and spread the happiness. Nothing short of chaining their little Sag ass to the bed is going to keep them home -- which takes it beyond the scope of sex-play, doesn't it?


Capricorn's natural reticence actually appeals to Scorpio's passion-fueled emotions. It's that old control thing again. If Capricorn says they don't like ass-play, for example, Scorpio will take great pleasure in making them come with just one (maybe two) red lacquered finger-tips slid in at just the right time. Oops -- how did that happen?


Their mutual curiosity facilitates their hold-my-hand-honey, headfirst-dive into unusual sexual practices; unusual to the general population, but not to them. Unfortunately, the Aquarian free-love and freedom ethic just can't measure up to Scorpio's need to be the center of their immediate sexual universe.


At last, a meeting of the minds -- the unspoken communication between Dom and sub really exists. Pisces is able to wield the power on those nights that Scorpio demands, "If you loved me you'd hurt me...just...right...there." Intuition, a steady hand, and mutual desire allow these two to root out and share each other's basest needs...again...and again...and again.
