    What You're Like in Bed, According to Your Star Sign

    If you want to learn more about your sexuality, I suggest looking to the stars!

    When it comes to determining what kind of a lover you are, who you are most sexually compatible with, and what sex toys you are most likely to love, your horoscope can be a fun place to start - if you believe in the influence of the cosmos, of course.

    From lusty Libras to the sensual Taureans, our tongue-in-cheek foreplay forecast could just hold the key to your next great orgasm.

    We've divided the 12 signs of the zodiac each by their distinct sexual proclivities. Read on to find out what astrology can teach you about what you're like in bed.

    Do you think your sexual summary is accurate? Be sure to let us know in the comments below!



    Aries (March 21-April 19)

    Aries is the first sign in the zodiac. As natural leaders, you're more likely to find an Aries confidently pursuing a potential lover, rather than being the one who is pursued.

    Due to their competitive streak, Aries also tend to be the ones that initiate sex and bring new toys and games into the bedroom. This makes them excellent Doms/Dommes if they decide to try their hand at BDSM.

    The biggest Aries erogenous zone is their mind, so any play that involves fantasy should go down a treat.

    Best sexual partners: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra, Aquarius


    Taurus (April 20-May 20)

    Ruled by the planet Venus, Taureans are famous for their sensuality. They love sex to be a totally immersive experience that involves all the senses - we're talking scented candles, body chocolate, ambient music, the works!

    Taureans are big fans of marathon-lovemaking sessions, and their determination means that all parties involved will be in for an earth shattering orgasm (or two!).

    Start with a massage, then build slowly into foreplay and beyond – your inner Taurus will thank you.

    Toys to Try: The Lovehoney Lickable Massage Candle range will be a total game changer for any Taurus.

    Gemini (May 21-June 20)

    Geminis are well known for their daring natures, and their flirting prowess.

    They are not at all shy when it comes to their sexuality, and their gift of the gab means that they are great at communicating with their partners.

    This characteristic has multiple benefits – it means that Geminis will straight up tell you what they need in the bedroom, and their dirty talk is likely to be on fire!

    Geminis have a tendency to be indecisive, but this trait is good in terms of their sexuality.

    You can expect to be taught lots of new, exciting positions if you're getting naked with a Gemini!

    Cancer (June 21-July 22)

    The ruling planet for Cancerians is the Moon, making this sign incredibly romantic and nurturing.

    Like Pisces, the water present in Cancerians also makes them highly perceptive.

    The result is a generous, intense lover, whose powerful lust really comes into play as romance starts to blossom.

    If you are a Cancer, you may find that you are especially orally fixated – you love long makeout sessions, as well as giving and receiving oral sex.

    The nurturing side to Cancerians means that they love breast play, so be sure to pay attention to this erogenous zone.

    Best sexual partners: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn


    Leo (July 23-August 22)

    When it comes to sex, you can count on a Leo to combine their consistently powerful libido with their penchant for drama.

    Charismatic Leos are passionate in bed and they are by no means shrinking violets, as they thrive on being the centre of attention. This is evidenced by their love of sizzling seduction and foreplay.

    The back is a particularly powerful erogenous zone for Leos (so rake those fingernails across it!) and they can be partial to a bit of mirror play. Ultimately, Leo is a sign that loves all things pleasurable, making them unforgettable in the sack.

    Toys to Try: You can't go wrong with some Sexy Lingerie for a Leo, it'll guarantee that all eyes will be on them.

    Best sexual partners: Leo, Aries, Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra, Aquarius


    Virgo (August 23-September 22)

    Virgos are not the chaste virgins that people often assume them to be.

    Virgos dedicate themselves to organisation, and pursuing perfection in all things – which is excellent news for anyone sharing a bed with them.

    For a Virgo, sex isn't over until their partner's socks are 100% knocked off. Additionally, they also have no qualms about initiating the post-coital debrief ("How was that for you?" is Virgo speak for "I want to be the best sex you've ever had").

    If you're a Virgo looking to maximise your pleasure, try lying on a flat surface like a desk for sex. The solid foundation, and its links with order, should relax you and leave your mind free to focus entirely on the sensations.

    Toys to Try: Virgos know there's a place for everything, and everything should be in its place – so a Lovehoney Lockable Sex Toy Case will always be well received.

    Best sexual partners: Virgo, Taurus, Capricorn, Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces


    Libra (September 23-October 22)

    Libras, like Taurus, are also ruled by the planet Venus. This accounts for their refined tastes and love of sophistication.

    Libras love to be mentally and verbally stimulated, so flirty banter and steamy sexts sent at intervals throughout the day will get you in a Libra's good books.

    If you're a Libra, anything beautiful or cultured is automatically appealing to you. If sex is on the cards, you love to set the scene by slipping into your most devilish lingerie and lighting loads of candles.

    Libras are exceptional lovers because they seek to perpetuate equality in all that they do, and partnership just comes naturally to them. The 69 position is a favourite with Libras, and they love it when you talk dirty.

    Best sexual partners: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Aries, Leo, Sagittarius


    Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

    Scorpios are ruled by both Mars and Pluto, planets that deal with desire and transformation respectively.

    This explosive combination has lead to Scorpio becoming universally known as 'the sex sign' – those born under it are extremely passionate and exude sex appeal wherever they go.

    Scorpios are naturally powerful people, which can lead them to seek out sexual scenarios that revolve around the nature of control.

    If you're a Scorpio, you may find that your innermost desires are quite kinky, veering into BDSM.

    Best sexual partners: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn


    Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

    A Sagittarius' sense of humour means there is never an awkward sexual moment with these free-spirited souls. An untimely leg cramp or queef won't ever phase them, they'll just laugh it off and keep right on going.

    Known as wanderers and seekers, a Sagittarius is sexually liberated and is always up for trying different things.

    Sagittarius is symbolised as a hunter, and is a fire sign, so you love pursuing your potential partners with heated passion. You're also a natural traveller, so holiday sex in an exotic location really floats your boat.

    Best sexual partners: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra, Aquarius


    Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

    Capricorns are big fans of regular, athletic sex, and have plenty of stamina.

    Like Taurus and Virgo, Capricorns are an earth sign. This makes them very lusty indeed, and their goal-oriented mindsets mean that you should expect orgasms aplenty!

    Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of restriction and repression, so sexual play that involves orgasm denial or boundaries is right up a Capricorn's street. Their knees and legs are also important erogenous zones.

    Capricorns love to treat themselves, so expect them to own the latest sex toys, the highest quality lube and the fanciest lingerie on the market.

    Toys to Try: Capricorns will love the Sliquid Range. One of the most boutique lube companies on the market, Sliquid lubricants are completely free of glycerine or parabens – and they come in sophisticated flavours like Green Apple, and Blackberry Fig!

    Best sexual partners: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces


    Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)

    Aquarians are famous for their active imaginations, and their love of fantasy. They are also fiercely independent, so often take on a leadership role in the bedroom.

    Those born under this sign are likely to incorporate role play into their romps, and will have no problem articulating their wildest fantasy scenarios.

    If you are lucky enough to have sex with an Aquarius, you'll soon discover that they love to experiment, and are open and honest about what they enjoy. Aquarian sex is rarely boring!

    Best sexual partners: Aquarius, Gemini, Libra, Aries, Leo, Sagittarius


    Pisces (February 19 to March 20)

    Pisces are extremely intuitive and compassionate souls, making them fantastic to jump into bed with.

    They are great at deciphering what their partner craves, and then doing exactly that all night long!

    If you're a Pisces, this is probably why that one-night-stand keeps calling – it's because you rocked their world and they want to come back for more.

    Being in or near to water is the best way to relax a Pisces. So, for those Pisceans looking for even greater sex, try getting your freak on in the shower or hot tub.

    Toys to Try: Pisces people, treat yourself to a Sex in the Shower Single Locking Suction Foot Rest – it'll take your water play to the next level!

    Best sexual partners: Scorpio, Pisces, Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn


    Whether you swear by astrology, or just look at your horoscope every now and then for a bit of fun – it's great to know what your star sign says about you sexually.

    We all deserve to have phenomenal sex, and if you happen to use the zodiac's wisdom to guide you there, then bravo!

      Why have you used an image of the Geat Nebula in Orion? What does the constellation of Orion have to do with astrology? Did you even get permission from the astrophotographer that created the image before you put it on here?

      As a member of the Longhurst family (mother’s side) I would expect better from you!

      Hi Ewan,

      Oops - looks like our knowledge of the night sky isn't what it could be! We'll look into sourcing an alternative image.

      As for the copyright on the image, it came from a website that offers free images which don't require permission from the photographer for use. You can check it out at Unsplash.com.

      Thanks,

      Sam
