Sexual Expression and Enneagram Type EIGHT - The Challenger
Does your Enneagram type follow you to the bedroom? Yes, it does!
INNER BELIEF of average EIGHTs - "No one controls me. I need to be strong, or lovers will take advantage of me. Sex is good, more sex is better.” (Ann Gadd).
MOTTO of Average EIGHT
"Life is rough but I’m tougher. Come here and let me show you how. Let’s do it now, my way!"
FRUSTRATION of Average EIGHT
"I want more sex than my partner does. When I allow myself to reveal my softer side, my partner takes advantage of me. Partners don't match my strength."
HEALTHY sexual expression of EIGHTs
Loving, self-revealing, focused on their partner's well-being and pleasure, and (of course) passionate.
If you have had a challenging experience with an EIGHT, you will learn about healthy EIGHT expression!
At their best, type EIGHTs are magnanimous, courageous, protectors, and have amazing self-control. At their worst, they are swaggering, boastful, bullying, and deny their own needs.
