Settle in for a very thorough dissection of the Taurus man’s sexual nature. This is the most in-depth article you’ll find online about male Taurus sex life!

1. How important is sex for a Taurus man?

Sex is certainly an important part of life for the Taurus guy. He loves it and needs it. But he can also go for long stretches without it when he doesn’t have the right partner on hand.

Part of the reason for his earnest desire for sex comes from his love of women and his desire for raw, earthy sensuality. He’s ruled by Venus, and the scent or sight of an elegant woman is all it takes to turn his mind onto sex.

If the right opportunityy presents itself, he could happily have sex every day of the week. Partnered Taurus guys usually settle on 4-5 days out of the week.

Single Taurus men don’t have much of a set time frame for having sex with a new mate. It could happen on the first date or within several months. He’s one of the more patient men in the zodiac. Still, physical expressions of intimacy are central to his style of connection, so sex often happens sooner than later in his relationships, so long as there’s comfort and trust.

2. How long do Taurus men like sex to last?

Usually, quite long. Patience is his sexual virtue, and quickies hardly satisfy him. He prefers the occasion to feel more like a lavish, seven-course meal. These guys like to take their time with virtually everything they do. It’s rare to find a Taurus who’s in a rush to finish the act.

Sex that lasts about an hour is usually right up his alley. But 2+ hour sexcapades accompanied by 30+ minute foreplay sessions also pique this guy’s interest. He won’t turn down a quickie, but he also won’t find it particularly satisfying. 

Rushing him in bed is rarely a good plan of action. He’s a slow, meditative lover. He wants to be able to sink into a space of immersive sensuality in a way that only marathon sex sessions can provide.

He loves to tease, roll around and explore bodies, and become awash in sensual stimulation. While he can certainly live up to his symbol, the bull, in bed, he tends to be on the slower, sleepy side of sex. What he lacks in variety (more on that later), he makes up for in endurance.

Taurus men usually aren’t premature ejaculators, instead, they can have the opposite problem of erectile dysfunction or delayed ejaculation. And it’s not always due to impotence, but just a symptom of his high threshold for stimulation. It takes some time to warm this man up.

3. Are Taurus men comfortable initiating sexual activities?

He may be highly sexual, but Taurus men are not your typical predatory animal. He’s the strong silent type, and passivity marks his style of sexual pursuit. He signals his readiness and expects the woman to do the prerequisite pouncing. He plays the patient, aloof sex object – which woos women into jumping his bones. 

As such, the majority of the time a Taurus man falls into a sexual tryst, the pattern is him seemingly being seduced into it.

He’s usually well aware of what’s happening. It’s not that he’s manipulative or cunning, he just finds it simpler to use his natural appeal to attract her. Taurus men are simply fond of finding the easy route in such matters.

When he’s truly at ease and the moment is right, he’s often comfortable initiating the sexual act itself. He just does this slowly and cautiously. Taurean men can have more insecurities than their quiet confidence lets on. Some truly are quite shy and struggle with fears of rejection.

4. Are Taurus men typically into casual sex?

When they’re not in a relationship, Taurus men will often enjoy having sex with one or more partners. These guys love women and feminity and have a large capacity for feminine presence in their life. Having other people desire him also gives him an exquisite sense of satisfaction.

Safety is paramount for Taurus men, though. They are security-minded and usually a bit more cautious than other males in the zodiac. So one night stands aren’t huge on their list of sexual desires. He prefers the comfort, control, and familiarity of having sex with someone he knows.

There’s certainly a distinction with how he shows up for hook-ups compared to his deeper relationships. He remains quite detached with casual flings. Even though he’s very physically focused sex-wise, he’s still a highly romantic man and sex has a deeply emotional appeal to him. And only serious partners get that out of him.

5. How well do Taurus men communicate their sexual needs?

Taurus guys are decent at communicating sexually. They’re very touch-focused, so you can learn a lot from him by his body movements and hand gesturing. Typically more so than his words.

A lot of Taurus guys do struggle with being silent. But the less inhibited ones will make a lot of sounds, which indicate his pleasure. When they are vocal, it’s usually in a subdued manner: whispering, not yelling.

Ultimately, expect him to ask and direct mostly through touch. 

6. Are Taurus men usually vanilla or more adventurous in bed?

On a scale of 1-10 (vanilla to full-on kinky), Taurus men usually fall somewhere around 6-7.

They’re strong and enjoy athletic lovemaking (once you get them warmed up). But they’re usually more consistent than experimental. They tend to oscillate between two main flavors: slow and sensual, and full-on Bull thrusting.

A quiet, cozy settings with oils and candlelight usually top their lists of fantasies. As does some quaint, outdoor, picnic-style scenario.

They’re very tactile and oral. Oral sex is big for Taurus men and a key component of foreplay. They love to give and receive it (they’re usually great at cunnilingus). They love deep kissing and highly sensual touch. Exploring with hands and tongues is ecstasy for them.

BDSM can have some appeal for Taurus. Lighter bondage (collars, restraints) and teasing usually tickle his fancy. They’re usually on the dominant end but are often comfortable dropping into a submissive role from time to time. He might not introduce too much in the way of kinks, but he’ll usually be open if presented to him.

Sex toys and gadgetry aren’t usually big for Taurus men. He’ll more likely enjoy the introduction of food to the bedroom than toys. He may find sex toys pleasurable, but they usually won’t hold his interest. He’s much more earthy and skin to skin in his approach to sex. He’s more of a sensualist than an eroticist. 

Above all, he loves watching his partner during sex. He loves to see how much he gets her off. Her enjoyment and climaxes greatly excite him.

7. What qualities in a partner are major sexual turn-ons for a Taurus man?

Looks. Looks are key, as Taurus is a highly physical sign. Hygiene and cleanliness are absolutely essential. A sweet smile, openness, friendliness, and physical attributes like weight are important to him as well. He’s turned on by a partner that takes care of herself. Natural beauty really appeals to his earthy aesthetic. 

Confidence. Taurus is the sign of self-esteem, and a good deal of it in a partner is necessary to turn him on. He’s aroused by a self-possessed and assured woman. Neediness and insecurity don’t excite him at all. Security and stability are aphrodisiacs to him, and he wants a partner with a great inner strength that won’t crumble from life’s challenges.

Authentic femininity. Taurus is ruled by Venus, which makes him turned on and tuned in to feminine energy more than most men. A confident, intelligent, and submissive feminine spirit lights him up. Crassness and prissiness really put him off. Superficiality repels him. Any kind of artificial behavior gives Taurus the sense that sex will be efficient and tidy, and that is a Taurus turn-off.

Devotion energy. Taurus’s energy is very devoted, and he likes to see that reflected in his sexual partners. He’s turned on by a woman that focuses her attention on him in a way that garners a strong connection. Insensitivity, wishy-washiness, and a ‘who cares’ attitude send him running.

A keen ability to activate his senses. Taurus men are slaves to their senses. He loves to see, touch, taste and smell. This is especially true in the bedroom. He loves the natural scent and musk of a woman (so long as she follows general hygiene etiquette). He loves food and wine, especially before sex. He loves his whole body to be stroked, adored, and pampered. Sweet perfumes, with tastes like vanilla and tobacco, really get him going. Nice feeling skin and fabrics are essential. 

8. How important is the environment for sex with the Taurus man?

The atmosphere is pretty important to these guys. Lush settings will heighten his trysts substantially. Outdoor sex grounds him is often quite appealing to his earthy sensitivities. 

Attention to decor and ambiance really go a long way with him. Candlelight is always a guaranteed win with him. Dinner, a bath, and good music gets him hook, line and sinker. Comfort is essential, above all. 

9. Are Taurus men big on cuddling and sexual after-care?

Absolutely. Taurus is very touchy-feely. They love to stay home, relax, and cuddle after sex. Showering together, watching a movie, or playing a game before bed is his idea of perfect after-sex care.

If you like to stay bodies entwined after sex and enjoy some loving, intimate pillow-talk – then he might be your guy.
