To some degree, we suspect that narcissists view their sexual partners as of the “we" then perhaps their long-term term relationships would function a little. Many illnesses can cause sexual dysfunction such as an inability to become harm a Empath is when one is in close contact with a Narcissist as a family concern about sexual performance, marital or relationship problems. Sexual empaths are highly sensitive during lovemaking (and flirting too). So they engage in a sexual relationship early on with a person.
Empaths are highly intuitive. Empaths need alone time. Empaths can become overwhelmed in intimate relationships. Empaths are targets for energy vampires. Empaths become replenished in nature.
Empaths have highly tuned senses. Empaths have huge hearts but sometimes give too much. I spent a significant amount of time in a relationship with a narcissistic woman who was a sociopath even being able to say this now honestly, is freeing.
When an empath and a narcissist enter into a relationship, a magnetic, dysfunctional and destructive vortex is created because the empath gives to the point where there is nothing left of them emotionally.
Not to be dramatic, but to tell my truth an empath can die literally in a relationship like that by developing very destructive behaviors. If the empath can remove themselves from the relationship, they awaken…while the narcissist remains the same. In my case, the narcissist had nothing left to destroy when I left, so it destroyed itself. I lived because I was presented with an angel on earth whose purpose was to help me love myself. Empaths need to guard their hearts, and their spirits like Fort Knox guards the gold reserves.
We are beams of light who also happen to often be conventionally physically attractive. We have undeniable auras. Not to toot our own horns, but we have plenty of options in dating.
We know too much about ourselves and are too tuned in to others around us to compromise. Aside from selfish reasons, we also need regular communication to confirm our instincts and ensure the other person is on the same page as us. We feel everything more intensely than your average person, so the sort of love that awakens all the cells in your body is the norm for us.
Being so connected to the world around us means we are incredibly alive between the sheets. Empaths are highly charged creatures. Or we misread a situation and freak out.

It takes a special person to be deeply honed into the nuances of the human experience. Gaze into an empaths eyes, and you can see that we are old souls. Many people who are highly sensitive have experienced trauma in this life or another. We understand deeply what it means to live, and because of this, we have much to share with you.
If anything, our marvellous abilities to touch into the world around us leaves us wildly at risk for crashing and burning. Be careful not to get into a codependent relationship with an empath.

The best way to prevent burnout is by using balance and boundaries despite the draw of our love. Once established, it is almost impossible for an empath to break away, because doing so will cause the narcissist so much pain.
Which is, ironically, narcissistic itself.
So how can empaths protect themselves from being exploited? Here are some simple suggestions: People will go through tough times and experience painful emotions no matter what we do. This can ultimately translate into a submissive personality, particularly during intimate encounters.
The Empath goes out searching for validation in a way which grants them both a modicum of control in their lives, by choosing their partners, and validation of their worth, based on compliments they receive during the sexual encounters. These things can become almost addictive, where in the Empath bases their entire self worth on sexual aspects of their personalities, ultimately defining themselves through that tainted perception of themselves.
The Masculinity of a Male Empath
Symbiosis can be defined, in this case, as the coming together of two people who live in a mutually beneficial relationship. In the case of sexuality, it is one where two people come together and share in the mutually pleasurable act of orgasm, without pushing away from the physical sensations or emotional tidal waves that rise out of the act. Taking on the physical sensations and emotional currents of their own sexual gratification and that of their partner can be a mind blowing experience which can completely overwhelm an Empath and leave them in a shattered state, by its completion.
This is a state that many Empaths avoid at all costs, preferring instead, a more vicarious sexual interaction focused more on the act of giving than receiving.
These range from the viewing of pornographic material, to voyeurism, which is the spying on or actual viewing of others participating in sexual acts, to a more direct tract. The more direct tract mentioned, is that of a preference toward giving, rather than receiving, or how shall I say it, preforming sexual acts on others instead of having it done to them.
And the more their partner feels, the more emboldened they become to continue. And because they also tend to feel the pleasures of both themselves and their partners at the same time. It may also be considered a lack of a sexual orientation. Celibacy refers to a state of being unmarried, or a state of abstinence from sexual intercourse or the abstention by vow from marriage.
