Scratch an Itch — Sex in Tarot series : Friends with Benefits
Trigger alert : Explicit sexual material
Two of Cups, Scratch an Itch Stories
Conventional images of Two of Cups
Friends with Benefits
What’s depicted, is two people with lesser romantic intensity and a higher balanced friendship or union. It’s 100% balanced arrangement both people benefit from, and although not normally long lasting, it can be fulfilling and highly beneficial to both. Neither wishes or needs to commit to anything lasting, and both are happy to have their casual relationship until a Mr or Mrs Right comes along.
Remember, this may not be long lasting; but it’ll certainly be fun and something to look forward to, and the whole affair is marked by balance and equality — both want it — and, with the absence of deep emotions, it would be rare if either was hurt or felt they were being used. So, now, let’s take a look at the cards below. Here is a highly sensual depiction of the Scratch and Itch, Two of Cups—nothing much left to the imagination here.
Scratch an Itch : Friends with Benefits (the centre water (2) image represents sexual fluidity, diving to greater depths)
The positive bonding key words and phrases for the Two of Cups rendezvous are penetration, passion, sexual union, easy orgasms (especially for the woman), vaginal penetration, mutual masturbation, mutual oral-genital practice, freedom in sex, and like sexual sympathies.
The Down Side
There’s a yin/yang component to every card, and the Two of Cups in no exception.
The friends with benefits, Scratch and Itch rendezvous could become like an addiction (hence the ‘scratch and itch’ metaphor). For example, if you wanted to stop, it could be difficult because of the excitement and thrill of the next encounter. Also, if it did finish, the friendship, as it was before, would be difficult to maintain. There would always be a temptation to re-ignite the union. Moreover, the sexual relationship with the new Mr or Mrs would need to be, right from the outset, really good. You wouldn’t want to be having sex with your new partner longing for your Two of Cups encounter, so choose wisely.
If, during a reading, the Two of Cups appears reversed or is triggered by other negative cards, a very different outcome can occur. However, this is more to do with a current relationship which if it’s a ‘friends with benefits’ situation, may be coming to an end. The negative, separating key words include separation, divorce, infidelity, end of sexual union between two lovers, unkept promises (including promises of orgasm and sexual bliss), frigidity, and pretence of sexual prowess leading to sexual frustration.
So there you have it. During your next psychic tarot reading watch out for the Two of Cups — you might be about to scratch your very own itch.
