Meeting a potential sex partner can be done so easily these days with a literal swipe off an app from your mobile phone. With the number of apps openly accessible to almost everyone, hook-up culture has become an accepted style of human connection. However, as is so often the case, these hook-up dates we arrange online with total strangers end up being less gratifying than we expected. If you've ever wondered what seems to be the problem why you're not having a blast (pun definitely intended), the stars may have some answers for you! Read our astrological guide to better sex and let the signs lead your way or browse more sexual health tips at The Sexytime Podcast.
Turns out, our Zodiac sign tells a lot about our love language and sexual traits, some of which we may not have even realized yet. This could be the reason why that last person that you found so physically attractive was not a good lay. Physical attraction does not always mean sexual chemistry. There was just a lack of sexual compatibility between you. Of course, this isn't to say that if you're a Virgo then you should avoid Aquarians at all cost. But get this, you might naturally have pleasurable sex with the right pairing! If you want to know who you're best paired with sexually, continue reading...
Aries: Bold and Ambitious
Aries is a fire sign that loves being the first and the top. Aries are passionate, action-packed and they are all about that non-stop flirting, even in bed. The sign of the ram also craves challenges. This means that if you are being wooed by an Aries, some rivalry might be a turn-on. If you are an Aries woman, try taking charge and being on top to get in touch with your dominant nature. Also, since competition is very much an Aries' game, a threesome might be a hot idea too!
Best sexual partners: Leo, Sagittarius, and Libra
Taurus: Succulent and Sensual
Taurus is an earth sign represented by the bull. Taureans are very intimate in bed, and they appreciate an overall sensual experience. Sexy music, soothing aromas, and the use of soft feathers might be a turn-on for a Taurus. When wooing a Taurus, the key is to know their favorite scent, tune, or food. New things to try can include long sessions of foreplay, light tickling, and maybe sexting (accompanied by voice notes and pictures).
Best sexual partners: Virgo, Scorpio, and Aquarius
Gemini: Fast and Moving
Gemini is an air sign that symbolizes change. Change in sex positions, in location, and for better or worse, in partners. This is because people born under the sign of the twins do everything at a fast pace. They like to keep it moving, so they might be into one-time flings. As soon as they get bored with anything or anyone, they're gone with the wind. However, Geminis can be happy in long-term sexual relationships if their partner can keep up with them. Suggested sexual activities are roleplay (come up with a different theme each time) and sex in various locales.
Best sexual partners: Sagittarius, another Gemini
Cancer: Romantic and Intuitive
Cancer is a cardinal water sign known for its ability to interlace sex and romance together, much like how a crustacean would seamlessly weave between the sea and the shore. That said, Cancers are not the type to participate in one-time flings. Emotional connection is one of the most important aspects of any sexual relationship a Cancer would have. The time spent with a Cancer is well worth it as they are known givers and are intuitive of your needs. For most Cancers, it is a must to set the mood first - so prepare your candles and roses!
Best sexual partners: Capricorn, Taurus, and Scorpio
Leo: Assertive and Energetic
Leo is a spirited fire sign represented by a lion. This fiery sign loves to perform. Leos enjoy the spotlight and constantly craves attention. When out and about, and the urge comes, other signs might say, "Oh no, someone might see us!". Leos don't care and will go for it. The kings and queens of the jungle are also very performance-oriented, so take note of that if you want to hit it off with a Leo. Turn-ons for Leos may include exhibitionism and voyeurism.
Best sexual partners: Aries, Sagittarius, and Aquarius
Virgo: Smart and Practical
Virgo is an earth sign represented by the virgin (but not exactly chaste). They are known for their elaborate and definite sexual preferences. Virgos know what they want from a sex partner. They know all the pleasurable spots in their body. As natural perfectionists, this earth sign may tend to be nitpicky about the sheets and lights. Just make sure the environment is tuned to their preference, down to the littlest detail. Sexual activities to try: Tantric and Taoist sex methods.
Best sexual partners: Taurus, Pisces, and another Virgo
Libra: Flirtatious and Frisky
Libra is an air sign known for its fixation on stability as represented by the scales. Libras are constantly sexually linked with another person as they use sex to find balance and harmony in life. Libras like being chased and see no problem with flirting with multiple individuals simultaneously to find out which one is the most consistent and steady. If you'd like to reel in a Libra to the bedroom, don't be afraid to chase and show dominance! A Libra can be submissive (regardless of gender) and might be into anal play and domination/submission plays.
Best sexual partners: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius
Scorpio: Sultry and Seismic
Scorpio is a water sign known for its affinity when it comes to sex. Scorpios think that everything is related to sex and has some sexual ingredient. Because trust does not come easy to this sign, a Scorpio may also use sex as a front to make other people think they are open and vulnerable. If you're looking into getting it on with a Scorpio, the key is to be the natural partners of the "opposites attract" variety. Be emotional and vulnerable with a Scorpio. They would normally find this foreign and interesting. Sex with Scorpio can also be better if it's aquatic- try shower or beach sex.
Best sexual partners: Capricorn, Cancer, and another Scorpio
Sagittarius: Playful and Adventurous
Sagittarius is the last fire sign of the Zodiac represented by the archer – a natural explorer and adventurer. Sagittarius enjoy discovering new things all the time - new positions, new toys, new locales. Often enthusiastic in bed, this sign gets excited at the hint of anything foreign to the bedroom. Don't be afraid to try things with a Sagittarius in bed. A Sagittarius might be open to BDSM and other kinky sexual activities. Be honest to them with your needs - no sign is as appreciative of clarity as the archer.
Best sexual partners: Gemini, Leo, and Libra
Capricorn: Physical and Dutiful
Capricorn is the last earth sign characterized by a mythical sea-goat. Capricorns are highly physical and see sex as a task to complete to the best of their abilities. Since Saturn (the planet governing hard work and obligation) rules this zodiac, Capricorns do not usually "play" or "chase" for romance. Capricorns are attracted to power and wealth. Sexual activities to try with a Capricorn can include financial domination or a hot steamy session of old-fashioned vanilla sex.
Best sexual partners: Cancer, Virgo, and Scorpio
Aquarius: Independent and Inventive
Aquarius is an air sign, despite being mistaken as a water sign due to the "aqua" in its name. Aquarians are known for their independence, and having a partner to experience orgasmic pleasure is just an option for the water bearers. Due to this fact, this sign is the most likely to enjoy sex toys such as vibrators or dildos. However, if you happen to end up with an Aquarius in the bedroom, you may need to be as creative as possible. Look into Kama Sutra and make sure you are performing better than their toys.
Best sexual partners: Taurus and Leo
Pisces: Yin and Yang
Pisces, characterized in the constellation by two fish swimming in opposite, directions is a water sign. It symbolizes Pisces' dualism take on sex. The fish have no problem taking on the top or the bottom role in bed and are often a "switch." This versatility makes the Pisces one of the most sought-after sex partners, and this fantasy appeals to almost every other sign. Things to try with Pisces in the bedroom: Pegging and anal plugging.
Best sexual partners: Virgo and Sagittarius
