Capricorns in bed tend to be a bit headstrong: They like to be in charge, in bed and elsewhere. Whether you’re a Cap or you’re romancing one, if you’re wondering what you need to know about sex, like the best sex position for Capricorns, look no further: Suzie Kerr Wright has a mouthful to say on this subject. The astrologer, who is also a psychic medium, tarot card reader, Reiki master/teacher and certified holistic life coach, told me that Capricorns love to dominate any situation, especially one that involves a bed.
Interestingly, willful Capricorn also has a softer side — Wright revealed a few erogenous zones that will melt a Capricorn, which is a good trick to either share with a lover or use on a lover — ideally a Scorpio, as a Capricorn/Scorpio roll in the hay is sure to be quite a treat. Very possibly a kinky treat: Whether a little BDSM comes into play, or just some rough-and-tumble action, the combination is tops. As Capricorns are ambitious and respond to challenges with glee, anything Scorpios can dream up will just push Capricorns to have a little more fun — and do whatever it is to perfection. In that vein, here are five things you should know about sex with a Capricorn.
1. You Want It The Way You Want It
Basically Capricorns are bullies. I jest, but real talk: Capricorns are steely little goats, and they don’t relish being denied anything. Taureans may have a bad rap for stubbornness, but it’s fiery Capricorn (and fellow earth sign) who really likes to get her way. “They don’t care for the word ‘no,'” says Wright — especially not when it comes to sex and love. “Romantic, confident and determined, once a steely Cap has you in their sights, you won’t stand a chance,” she says. If you’re a Cap, that means you aren’t used to being shot down, and you’ll stop at nothing to capture the attention of the apple of your eye. And the same goes in bed: Once the lights go out (or stay on, whatever), you’re happy to take charge, and aren’t accustomed to anything that might get in the way of a good time.
2. Pick A Safe Word
There’s no such thing as light BDSM with a Capricorn. In fact, it’s probably wise to lay down some boundaries before hopping in the sack. “When things heat up with the sea goat, a having a safe word is a good idea,” Wright says. If you’re a Cap, you probably already know that it’s possible to get a little carried away, and if you’re bedding one, beware. “They never do anything halfway, and always have their eye on a goal — even in bed,” says Wright. Whether the goal is to incorporate some handcuffs or just leave a few scratches on your partner’s (or your own) back, get ready for a wild time.
3. You Might Not Be Clamoring To Put A Ring On It
Capricorns are the NSA sign of the zodiac, it seems. “Capricorns will generally marry late in life, but can have many, many affairs while they’re waiting for the right one,” Wright says. If you’re a Capricorn, embrace that side of yourself and don’t be shy to have some fun via Tinder. And if you’re dating one, don’t hold your breath for a marriage proposal, although it does happen sometimes, albeit slowly. “They do have a romantic side, but being so selective, they won’t rush into any relationship with a lot of flourish,” Wright says. “Once they know you are worth their time, then they turn up the heat.”
4. Your Erogenous Zones Are Where It’s At
Capricorns, the “CEOs of the zodiac,” can be very domineering, Wright says. “They know how to climb to the top — literally and figuratively.” Outside of the bedroom, that can be — wait, who cares about anything outside of the bedroom? In the bedroom, Capricorns will always be happy to take charge. Though submissive sex is usually painted with a man in control, if you’re a Cap, don’t hesitate to tell your partner exactly what you want. That said, a little gentleness goes a long way as well, so be sure to have some soft moments with your partner. “When it comes to sex, Capricorn women get turned on by subtle touches,” Wright says. “Her favorite places? Lick her belly button and behind her knees.” Go forth and prosper on that one.
5. You May Be A Teeny Bit Selfish
Capricorns are happy to be very giving in bed, but it’s to further their own cause: “She’ll do anything to make sure her man is rock hard [or woman is super turned on] so she can get off when she wants,” Wright says. Though Caps may err a little on the side of selfishness in bed, the sex will be so good that your partner (ideally a Scorpio) won’t care what the impetus behind the actions might be. If your lover is a man, “Capricorn men can go all night — they love to be in control, and their lovemaking will be methodical but deeply passionate, almost ritualistic,” Wright says. Whether you’re sleeping with a male or female Capricorn — or if you’re the Cap in the relationship — bet on the sex of your life. “Both sexes will do what it takes to reach the ultimate orgasm, and they’re willing to take the time to let it build from a spark to a red hot fire,” Wright says.
