You easily nurture your erotic and sexual side.

In fact, being in a nurturing or caretaking role can be arousing for you. You can find it satisfying and even be infatuated with those with whom you feel a strong emotional connection.

You don’t know how to separate erotic from emotional love. This can lead to confusion when you expect a purely sexual relationship to naturally have an emotional component and your partner doesn’t see it that way.

Yet you can show a caring, emotionally compassionate side even when you are exploring erotic relationships.

You need to feel secure and at home before you can fully open up to your full erotic potential and share your desires and fantasies with others.

You may find it easy to make others feel emotionally secure and this helps you to express your desires.

Your erotic fantasies and sense of infatuation follows your emotional security. Yet you don’t have to struggle to make a connection with your partner.

You may find that nurturing and talking about home, emotions and even money or other things that you associate with security, opens the door to greater arousal.

Feeling at home or feeling comfortable with a partner you can envision settling down with can increase your arousal. You may even fetishize some aspect of your home or role as caregiver.

Some aspect of your emotional needs or issues from family or childhood can drive a wedge in your ability to pursue your desires.

You may have a strong sense of erotic connection to a partner yet shameful or embarrassing experiences from your childhood or parental opinions can get in the way of you fully expressing your erotic nature.

You may feel like you have to hide or stifle some aspect of your sexual desires or fantasies or you may have a fetish that feels taboo because it goes against family, culture or upbringing. You can find greater acceptance of your sexual nature when you first work through emotional baggage.

Getting a new perspective on your emotional needs, finding stronger emotional connection and security can help you express your desires and erotic nature without feeling embarrassed or shy.

You are secure in yourself and have the emotional nurturing you need to express your fantasies and desires.

Your emotional nature can drive you to explore your fetishes or desires. You may become intimately attracted to people you care for or nurture. You may also have fetishes or desires related to being emotionally nurtured or cared for.

Your emotional connection needs to be strong in order for you to open up about your deeper desires or express your erotic side. Yet once you feel this connection, you can easily open up and show your erotic love for a partner.

You may find it challenging to express your erotic desires if you don’t feel secure first.

It’s not a good idea for you to try to have a sexual relationship without an emotional connection. Even if you tell yourself you can handle a “friends with benefits” relationship, you’ll inevitably develop an emotional attachment.

When this happens, you may come to expect that your partner will naturally fall in love because of the amazing sexual energy and chemistry, but this is not guaranteed. You can feel conflicted about how to find security and emotional connection and also reveal your sexual side.

You may have to work through an emotional hang up in order to embrace your sexual desires and pursue your fetishes. In order to fully explore your fantasies, you first need to feel confident and secure.

You may feel insecure about your sexual fantasies.

Your need for emotional security may make you look for validation yet you may feel awkward showing your fantasies and desires with others. The more you work on your own emotional security, the more you will be able to let go of judgment and embrace your sexual desires.

You may become infatuated with people who tend to your emotional needs but also need to open up and overcome possessiveness or insecurities so that you can form a more solid bond with your partner.
