Power up (0-25 Points)
Sexual power is a function of self-esteem. If you’re worried that you’re not hot enough, embarrassed because of some antiquated social stereotype that says sexual pleasure is bad, or downright disinterested in doing the deed, it’s time to delve deeper and channel your sexual side. Take care of yourself in the bedroom and beyond (whether alone or with a mate), and watch your sexual self-esteem start to soar.
Pressure drop (26-56 Points)
You may not know it, but you’re more sexually powerful than you think. And while there’s room for improvement when it comes to how you feel about yourself in the bedroom, you’re on your way to realizing your seductive strength. The key to harnessing your sexual power may just be in releasing all the pressure you put on yourself. Ask for what you want… and believe it or not, that strength will extend far beyond closed doors into the way you’re perceived in your every day life.
Perfect position (57+ Points)
You’re the kind of person people notice long beyond a first glance… you’ve got sexual power – and you know it! You’re comfortable with your body and with the idea of sex in general. A giver as well as a receiver, you know the importance of mutual satisfaction and you’re not afraid to exert your desires or your will (or succumb to your partner’s) in the pursuit of pleasure.
