    Your erotic nature is completely stoked by idealism, romantic notions and fantasies.

    You may be more turned on by the idea of who you think someone is as opposed to who they actually are. You may easily confuse romantic and erotic love because your sense of eroticism is highly emotional. You can become intimately attached to people that you desire.

    Your ideal erotic encounter would involve a blend of emotional connection, spiritual connection and even the feeling that you are losing yourself in the other person and your identities and energies are completely merging with each other.

    You can express great tenderness, sensitivity and compassion in your erotic connection to others. You may have a purely idealistic and romantic vision of your intimate partner and this can interfere with your ability to face the music when it comes to practical matters in the relationship.

    You can also easily allow dreams and fantasies to take over, losing yourself in an erotic moment and not stopping to consider the consequences or practical implications of the intimate connection.

    You may find it easy to express your idealism and fantasies through your erotic encounters.

    You may easily draw on your creative nature to make the perfect scene for intimacy. You can be turned on by encounters that help you to feel like you’re escaping everyday life. You may be attracted to role play, costumes or using drugs or other mind altering tactics to change your consciousness or push boundaries, sexually.

    You can be deeply emotionally connected to a partner and still explore a full spectrum of emotions and desires. You prefer it when sex is transcendent and not just about physical pleasure.

    You may find it challenging to express your erotic love because you have such high ideals.

    You may feel like you have to wait for a partner who knows exactly how to please you but in doing so may project high standards. As if you expect someone to read your mind, you may dismiss or reject partners who don’t instinctively understand your fantasies.

    If you make adjustments to your mindset, you can better accept and appreciate your deep emotional bond and connection with your potential partners while also accepting that they, and you, don’t have to be perfect.

    If you can embrace the spontaneity of romance and eroticism, you can better explore your deeper desires, rather than waiting for things to be perfect.

    You can easily express your dreamy, sensitive and erotic nature.

    Creativity, art, play and transcendental experiences help you express your erotic nature. You have powerful intuition and also can be idealistic. You fantasize about the kind of intimate encounters you desire.

    Yet you can become so lost in fantasy that you come to prefer the daydream aspects of relationships to the actual physical encounters. The exception to this is when you can share intimate encounters that make you feel like you are losing yourself in the connection to your partner.

    Your fantasies and desires can get in the way of you seeing an erotic relationship for what it is.

    You have deep desires and rich sexual fantasies, yet you also can take an escapist approach to eroticism and sexuality. Erotic love can be like a drug for you and so you may try to suppress your deeper desires at first.

    When you do allow yourself to feel the full spectrum of emotions and sensations that you can feel when you’re attracted to a partner, you may run the risk of becoming absorbed and completely lose yourself in lust and fantasies.

    You understand this risk and so you may try to minimize your emotions and act like you don’t have the high degree of sensitivity you actually have. You may have to work hard to embrace your passions and emotion.

    When you embrace this part of your nature, you’ll be better able to enjoy sensuality and emotional connection as part of your erotic encounters.

    You may be uncomfortable dealing with some practical aspects of intimate relationships.

    Your erotic nature is linked to your fantasies and idealism. Yet you may shy away from outwardly expressing your erotic desires because you don’t feel confident in your own ability to cope with the challenging ups and downs of relationships.

    When things are difficult, you may try to escape or hide in erotic relationships or may treat sex like a drug to escape from your problems.

    Yet when you take the time to uncover your deeper fears and work through your insecurities, you can become confident expressing your erotic and romantic side without using your idealism and fantasies as an escape.
