  5. [Enneagram Type 8] Are you sexually dominant or submissive?

    Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    8s are naturally dominant in the way they navigate the world. But, as an 8, are you still dominant during sex, or do you like to feel submissive for once? If you chose submissive, do you still feel like it is a powerful act to be submissive, or does it turn you on to lose control?
