Scorpio is a notoriously seductive and mysterious sign, and that definitely extends to romance.

Sultry Scorpio cares about deep connections above all else but still knows how to play things close to the vest. This dynamic can create some tension, and it might take a while to find your footing. If you want intimacy that runs true and deep, this placement is ideal (if however, your goal is something more fleeting, Venus in Scorpio can be a problem). Things can get intense fast, so pay attention to your intuition here. It's the best tool when swimming in Scorpio waters.
