ou might roll your eyes at horoscopes, but if satisfaction in the bedroom was written in the stars, you would give it a shot, right? Right, because you probably do have more chemistry with some signs than others.
So if you’re looking to achieve that chemistry with a lover, it can’t hurt to consult the astrological charts below. It turns out, “What’s your sign?” might be more than just a cheesy pick-up line…
Aries — March 21 to April 19
Your sexual style: Aries, the Ram, isn’t afraid to charge ahead in the bedroom and assert dominance. Generally the Aries winds up going after their partner, rather than the reverse. You don’t like waiting or playing relational “games,” but don’t mind a bit of foreplay in the form of a good headscratch.
Best sex matches: Leo, Aquarius, Gemini, Sagittarius
Taurus — April 20 to May 20
Your sexual style: Taurus, the Bull, needs proper sensory stimulation to get excited. This can come in the form of cologne, the right color of lingerie, or even the right romantic meal. (Natural aphrodisiacs, anyone?) You tend to wait for the perfect situation rather than chase after it, because once you put your energy into something, you’re all in — no pun intended.
Best sex matches: Scorpio, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn
Gemini — May 21 to June 21
Your sex personality: The dueling personalities of Geminis, the Twins, are united in their feelings about getting it on. You don’t shy away from flirting, talking about sex in public, or even doing the deed somewhere unexpected. You love the verbal game that comes along with trying to entice someone, and want someone who knows how to talk — and do — dirty to you.
Best sex matches: Aries, Gemini, Sagittarius, Aquarius
Cancer — June 22 to July 22
Your sex personality: Creativity is Job One for the sensuous Cancer, who appreciates a partner who finds a more novel way to woo them into lovemaking. Fortunately for said partner, the Cancer’s natural intuition makes them good at knowing how to give individualized attention in bed.
Best sex matches: Taurus, Leo, Capricorn, Pisces
Leo — July 23 to August 22
Your sex personality: Leos, the Lions, are a force of nature both in sex drive and in pure charm, which is how you attract your mates. Like a lion, though, you love to play before you partake, and the art of seduction is one of your areas of expertise. You also love a lover who gives special attention to your back.
Best sex matches: Scorpio, Aries, Sagittarius, Leo
Virgo — Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
Your sex personality: Virgo may be the Virgin, but the sexual energy of this sign is anything but low. You thoroughly enjoy being sensually awakened through touch, and nothing gets you going like a good massage. You like your lovemaking to be pure and simple — no need for anything fancy — since for you it’s the thought that counts.
Best sex matches: Taurus, Libra, Pisces, Capricorn
Libra — Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
Your sex personality: Libras always operate with class and refinement, and this is particularly true in their leadup to love. You like to be mentally engaged, and often find a witty repartee with a person the surest sign of attraction. Once the hook is baited, you will probably fall full-force if the pursuer adds stimulating details — like the perfect lingerie or the perfect song.
Best sex matches: Aries, Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius
Scorpio — Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
Your sex personality: Scorpios have a zealous lust for life — and other things. You love it when the object of your affection keeps you on your toes, and a little drama never hurt anyone in the bedroom, as far as you’re concerned. You may enjoy role-playing that explores different power dynamics. As both a highly sexual and highly emotional being, however, sometimes you become overwhelmed trying to figure out what you truly want.
Your sexiest matches: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Pisces
Sagittarius — Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
Your sex personality: “Sags” are naturally adventurous, and nothing says adventure like trying all sorts of things in the bedroom. When you’re single, you love meeting — and perhaps even hooking up with — new people, but once in a relationship you’re loyal as long as you keep things spicy so you won’t get bored. And don’t be fooled by your short attention span: You know how to give attention right when a partner needs it.
Best sex matches: Leo, Aries, Gemini, Aquarius
Capricorn — Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
Your sex personality:
Not unlike Scorpios, Capricorns manage to strike a balance between sexuality and sensuality — both of which they feel intensely. You don’t need much to awaken your urges, but a lover who pays attention to your legs will probably see it pay off. You’re not a big fan of open displays of affection, but once you’re private and comfortable, there’s no stopping you.
Best sex matches: Cancer, Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo
Aquarius — Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
Your sex personality:
Aquarians are classic dreamers, but their idealism is paired with a love for exploration, which finds its way into their open-minded approach to sexuality. You enjoy the game of being pursued, as long as you don’t entirely have to give up control in the process. You don’t strike people as over-the-top with your sexuality, but in the right context you’re ready to surprise.
Best sex matches: Gemini, Aquarius, Sagittarius, Virgo
Pisces — Feb. 19 to March 20
Your sex personality:
Pisces, the Fish, tends to go with the flow, and you tend to get along with many different kinds of people. This makes the dating game easy for you. Once in a tryst, you are generally very selfless and concerned with making sure your partner is having a good time. As far as your own preferences, however, you love indulging the romantic and playful side of the spectrum.
Best sex matches: Scorpio, Cancer, Virgo, Libra
