Do female narcissists enjoy sex?
Female narcissists have the ability to enjoy sex. However, many narcissistic women act in selfish ways. Sex, for narcissists, is more or less to promote self esteem and individual well-being.
Narcissistic Personality Disorder
A person with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) exhibits a prevalent pattern of selfishness, lack of empathy, and a profound yearning for admiration. A narcissist has a preoccupation with personal power and can make decisions based on individual gratification. In simple terms, a narcissistic person is considered to be self-centered. When it comes to sex, narcissists can make the experience unpleasant and have a negative impact on your sexual health.
Narcissistic Women and Sex
There are three types of sexual behaviors that narcissistic women possesses. (1) hyper-sexuality, (2) hot and cold, or (3) frigidity. These three behaviors are by no means isolated: women can alternate. In addition, Psychology Today points to numerous signs that can help you figure out if you are, in fact, dealing with a narcissist.
- Excessive Focus on Performance and Approval: Because narcissistic women are constantly craving approval, they want to make sure they perform well in the bedroom. During the initial “charming” stages, they want to win their partner over and impress. This excessive focus on performance can lead to a trying attempt to give a virtuosos performance. As the partner, you are left to validate this showmanship creating a role-play rapport.
- Excessive Focus on Physical over Emotional: Sex for a narcissist is based on image. Appearance is paramount, resulting in little understanding for flaws or weakness (for themselves and their partner). There is little empathy, understanding, or mutual connection when it comes to sex. Because of the lack of interest in their partner, the love, vulnerability, and tenderness part of sex is wiped out.
- Negative Attitude: A narcissist will constantly put you down, treat you wrongly after sex, and react negatively when you don’t give them what they want. If you feel neglected after sex and feel like your partner disappears emotionally have sex, they possess narcissistic qualities.
