What's sex on Venus like? Gracious. Polite. Sensual. Just as Venus charms the entire sky with the come-hither sparkle of a diamond, these people are subtly sexually seductive. Yet for this person's sexual and ornamentatal dazzle, she's no mere arm candy: the Venus Eighth House person maybe deft at the art of courtship and pleasing others, but is now ready to have the tables turned and be the one who is being pleased! These people are learning to claim their pleasure principle and have that taken seriously by an intimate. This may involve learning to be comfortable in one's body and sexuality, or being valued by their partner for more than their beauty, body, reproductive biology or what they can materially offer another. The person they'll commit to cares about the Venus person's sexual satisfaction (not just their own) and they're simply likable. Yes, the Venus person must like you to love you! Sound counterintuitive? It's not. Similar to the way one can love a family member without actually liking them, this person may have spent lifetime(s) with people they loved but didn't actually like. So unlike weird Uncle Al, who always makes a scene at Thanksgiving dinner, their preferred intimate is not crass, socially awkward or embarrassing to be around. For the Eighth House mating bond to gel for life, the Eighth House Venus person requires an intelligent, kind and empathically sophisticated partner who will heed their turn ons and turn offs. If you're trying to win the heart of this person: seduce them - by exploring and going with what makes them happy. Just as a proper setting displays the diamond's multi-dimensional beauty and allure, the one who properly elevates and appreciates the loveliness of this Venus-born is the one fortunate enough to behold their sparkle forever!
