Most of us know that a person’s favorite color often reveals a lot about his or her personality, nature, likes and dislikes. Not many know, however, that one’s favorite color can also give you important clues about their sex life or sexuality. Now, most might claim that they do not have a favorite color-that all colors are the same to them. But if you take a look around you, and especially at your wardrobe, you will see that you are always attracted to the same colors over and over. You might probably even see the same patterns, textures and colors repeating in your living room, closet and other areas. These are important clues to help you decide your favorite color, in case you haven’t already. So here  are some of the most popular colors and what they indicate about your sexuality:


Black is a sexy alluring color associated with power and elegance. According to color psychology, people who like black are often known to have secret affairs and fantasies. It also indicates that the person is mysterious, stylish, and authoritarian. People who like black may also like BDSM or bondage and dominance. These are often strong stable people who like to control their partners. You are definitely not an open book and your partner may need to work very hard to peel those layers. However, you have the charm to leave your lovers coming back for more. Many sex offenders’ favorite color is black.


No other color ignites passion, romance, and lust as much as red does. The very fact that this color increases blood pressure indicates that it is sexually stimulating and arousing. Brides in China and India often wear red on their first night to excite their partner. People who love red are easy to please and stimulate. Red foods like strawberries and red wine are also associated with sexual pleasure. Paint your bedroom walls red and you will be always in the mood for sex! Red lovers will also always be ready to rock the night but their temper flare-ups can also cause problems. A good partner should be able to reign in this passion and power that red lovers have. Red is also considered as one of the most sensual colors.


Blue indicates a person who is calm, peace-loving and often distant. This is a cold lonely color which could indicate a lackluster, even boring sex life. People who love blue make very good partners though-they are honest, stable, dependable and extremely loyal. Blue lovers may often come across as cold and distant; they usually take some time to warm up to their dates or potential partners but it is all worth it in the long run. These are the people who are very much in control of their emotions. Bedrooms painted in blue promote calm and relaxation.


Pink is one of the popular sensual colors. It is a distant cousin of red when it comes to sexuality. However, where red ignites passion and lust, pink is all about romance. Pink lovers are very loving and caring; they will go out of their way to make their partner feel good. They are born romantics and adore taking care and even nurturing their partners. Men who like pinks tend to be spendthrifts though-so wives of such men should beware!  Often, pink lovers are slightly immature when it comes to sex.


Yellow is a happy color-people who love it are naturally optimistic and hopeful. This makes them fun and easy to be with. They make warm, cheerful and intellectually stimulating lovers. Yellow lovers are also attractive and pleasant. On the downside, this color could sometimes indicate instability and eccentricity. People who love yellow are often known for bouts of whims and spontaneity in the bedroom.


Green is a harmonious fresh and fertile color. These lovers want to make their partners feel safe and protected. Just being with such a lover can heal your body and mind. However, green could also indicate a lack of experience in the bedroom. The different shades of green are usually associated with masculinity, conservativeness, balance and harmony. While it is usually a nurturing and compassionate color; it could sometimes lead to jealousy, envy and selfishness among partners.


Orange lover is likely to be a warm, vibrant and flamboyant one. The color indicates a lover who is a risk taker- extroverted and uninhibited in bed. S/he is willing to try out new things in the bedroom and can make for enthusiastic, encouraging and stimulating partners.  Orange also denotes feminine energy and energy of creation. On the downside, orange lovers are known to be exhibitionists, over bearing and even dependent on their partners.


Purple combines the stability of blue and passion of red. It is also believed to be sexually deprived color or the color of sexual frustration. This could be attributed to its historical significance as a color of royalty, wisdom, dignity and also mystery and magic. People who love purple often have extravagant lifestyles and live in a dream world. Lighter shades of purple for bedrooms can signify romance while darker shades can frustrate or cause erectile dysfunction or other sexual issues.


White lovers are pure, virginal and loyal. They are often submissive as they love to maintain peace and think they can do so by pleasing their partner. As far as sexuality is concerned, white lovers tend to be conservative. They might also view sex as dirty or germy-even insisting on showering before lovemaking. Most white lovers would be shy in showing affection in public places.

Now you know what your favorite color says about your love life.
