There is a lot of information around colours and the emotions they represent. Certain colours are associated with certain emotions for example red represents anger. But does favouring a certain colour have an effect on what you are attracted to? It is quite possible, as your sexuality is orientated around your emotions.
If we look at what each colour means, we can analyse the possibility of how that colour affects your sexual behaviour. White on its own is a representation of purity. In weddings the bride often wears white, as traditionally she is supposed to be a virgin and by wearing white she shows her purity and honesty. In some cultures it represents kindness, which is why within those cultures it’s worn at funerals.
In love, white stands for loyalty. White is technically not a colour, which is why it stands for purity, as it completes light. Because it can change into any colour, it has some meaning as a good omen for new beginnings. Sexually, people who favour white are conservative. Owing to the purity aspect, it could be said that people who are fond of white are shy to show affection in public and tend to dress under the covers. They would probably shower both before and after making love.
Red stands at the opposite of white. Red represents passion and heat. The colour stands for a variety of things in different cultures. In China it’s the colour of prosperity and joy, whereas in western societies it can represent anger and violence. Mars is a red planet and in many ancient cultures represented the God of War. Because of this long association with violence and aggression, red now represents danger.
In our own bodies, blood is red, which brings with it symbols of life and vitality. Sexually, red lovers tend to be wild and explore different aspects of lovemaking. Two people who love red would probably be highly adventurous.
Purple has achieved mythical status in the colour world. Owing to it being associated with spiritual fulfilment, it is said that people who favour this colour are sexually deprived. As a colour, purple is associated with peace of mind and royalty. It’s the colour of the magician’s cloak and indicates magic. Sexually, as mentioned, there is a myth for purple lovers. People who prefer purple are rumoured to be non-fuss types and have a very businesslike approach to bedroom antics.
Black is generally associated with death, evil, and the opposite of white. However, this isn’t always necessarily so. In the Native American culture, they thought black was a good colour as it was the colour of the soil, which gives life. There is also a sense of mystery to the colour, which gives hope to potential and possibility.
Police psychologists have shown that most sex offender’s favourite colour is black. However, this might not always be the case, as described above, there can be possibilities for other attributes with black and sexual behaviours.
Green is the colour of healing, fertility and life. It is a general good-feeling colour and has links to harmony and safety. There is a lot of balance and change with the colour. Sexually, green people have a fresh and innocent approach to lovemaking. Emphasis is more on being gentle, faithful and reliable than on passion (red being the opposite colour of green).
Pink is generally described with love, beauty and romance. Looking at the actual colour, it is very quiet, although it is the combination of two very strong colours, red and white. There is a general feeling of tenderness, self-worth and acceptance with pink. Sexually, the colour is a bit of a tease. For women, pink is associated with femininity and might reveal that side for them.
Orange brings out the more red aspects within in. It is the colour for power, although it is also considered as one of the healing colours. Enthusiasm and creativity come out of orange, as well as thoughtfulness and sincerity. There is a lot of warmth to it. As a colour, it’s a type of toned-down red when it comes to meanings.
Sexually, it is said that orange lovers tend toward sexual fantasies. They also prefer a fair amount of foreplay, which is where the thoughtfulness comes in. Most blue things, such as the sky, the ocean, all have a calming effect of people. Due to it bringing a sense of relaxation with it, people generally find their most inspirational moments while looking at blue. Sincerity and spirituality are also part of the colour. Blue is also linked to friendship and conversation.
Sexually, blue brings out consideration and sensitivity within in lovers. They are concerned with their partner’s needs and wants, which also results in them being loyal and faithful in the long term.
Yellow is bright, sunny and the most cheerful of all colours. Emotionally, there are creativity and intellectual properties to the colour, which is probably why post-its and notepads are yellow. Yellow lovers are adaptable to their partners. They would rather be passive than initiate sexual behaviour.
Whether there is any truth behind the meanings of colours is up to each person’s intuition. However, it would explain a fair amount with regard to characteristics and emotions when looking at a specific shade. Favouring a type of colour could reflect your character in the bedroom. It might not be 100% true for all, but might explain why you like certain things certain ways.
