The Ultimate Zodiac Guide to Sex and Compatibility
Looking to the stars could be the key to discovering what signs you should be swiping right for on your quest for sexual compatibility.
Thoughtful, pragmatic, highly generous lovers who are keen to excel in the bedroom, Capricorns are always keen to learn how to best please their partner. Also, their ambitious nature means that experimenting with boundaries, power, and control isn’t off the table for a Capricorn.
Sexual compatibility: Capricorn’s tendency towards dominance and leadership in bed makes them highly protective and cumbersome lovers – perfectly suited to a sexually intense and giving Cancer.
Something to try: Keen to be in control, Capricorns might favour positions that involve being on top, and allow them to set the pace.
Innovative, eccentric, and keen to experiment, an Aquarian is never afraid to try something different – whether that’s a new sort of sex toy, an inventive kind of sex position, or a different sexual dynamic, such as threesomes or open relationships.
Sexual compatibility: The witty and vocal nature of Gemini makes a great match for an Aquarius, while a typically adventurous and high-energy Sagittarius will definitely be able to keep up with this experimental sign.

Deeply romantic and in search of a highly sensual and emotional connection, a Pisces tends to be a very intimate lover, who finds building up that emotional relationship with someone pretty crucial for the kind of passionate lovemaking that they crave.
Sexual compatibility: Equally passionate about pleasure and having their emotional needs met, a Taurus is generally a brilliant sexual match for a Pisces. However, if their need for romance outweighs their desire for passion, then seeking out a Cancer could be a better bet.
Something to try: Something highly intimate – whether through deep physical penetration, or the closeness of intense oral sex.
True to their nature, Aries are passionate and spontaneous when it comes to sex, and aren’t averse to things getting a little bit sweaty and rough. Driven when it comes to getting what they want, an Aries won’t tire easily, is happy to dominate, and is pretty to-the-point in bed – they don’t typically need reassuring and romancing, and are quite happy to jump straight into the action.
Sexual compatibility: Leo. When these two fire signs are together, expect sparks to fly.
Something to try: Having sex standing up could be just the ticket for an impatient and passionate Aries.
Keen to keep things sensual and slow, a Taurus will happily spend all day having sex and basking in that intimate connection – no bells or whistles needed. Expect lots of eye contact, tons of foreplay and touch, and close, intimate positions.
Sexual compatibility: Intuitive and sensual, all water signs – Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio – are truly where it’s at for a Taurus.

Expressive, vocal, and incredibly imaginative, Geminis are stimulated by words, and will get hot under the collar from just a sultry text. A super flirtatious sign, Geminis highly value communication and teasing banter in the bedroom, and are the masters of dirty talk. The physical activity of sex is not what Gemini craves – the provocative energy and verbal contact is what they desire the most.
Sexual compatibility: Light-hearted in their approach to sex, a playful Sagittarius partner is a great match for a similarly childish Gemini – both highly valuing expression, intellect, and laughter in the bedroom.
Something to try: Role play. A worthwhile step up from dirty talk, that’s well-suited to imaginative Geminis.
Highly emotional, the compassionate Cancerian craves closeness through sensual tongue kissing and oral sex. Keen on sharing sweat, saliva, touch, and eye-contact, their imaginative nature means that they are generally also quite sexually explorative and liberal.
Sexual compatibility: For a partner who similarly craves stimulation of the senses, a Taurus is a fantastic match for a Cancerian. However, for the ultimate sexual connection, Cancerians should also consider a thoughtful and patient Capricorn – both highly valuing the importance of emotional connection.
Something to try: Sex positions that require as much skin-to-skin contact as possible are ideal for the ultra-sensitive Cancerian,
True exhibitionists, Leos are super energetic in bed, and love to give and receive compliments. Extravagant to the core, a Leo will appreciate romantic details like flower petals, champagne, and high thread-count sheets, and are generally up for putting on a show in sexy lingerie, and engaging in role play.
Sexual compatibility: Also a fire sign, an energetic Sagittarian is bound to be able to keep up with a Leo.
Something to try: Mutual masturbation or mirror play provide great opportunities for Leos to put on a show.
The dark horses of the zodiac, you’d be wrong to think that relatively private Virgos are simply innocent. Meticulous and considerate, they are keen to hit the sexual sweet-spot of their partner, and are therefore happy to indulge in different tastes, fetishes, and fantasies, and are actually relatively primal themselves.
Sexual compatibility: Similarly keen on precision being the path to pleasure, kinky Capricorn is the ultimate sexual match for Virgo.
Something to try: Precise when it comes to knowing what they want and how they want it, all Virgo women should treat themselves to a OMGyes subscription – the ultimate resource for mastering the practicalities of pleasure.
When it comes to the bedroom, Libras highly value balance and beauty, making them incredibly generous and fair-minded lovers, who are super stimulated by simply taking in the attractiveness of their partner. Flirtatious and adventurous, Libras love to flaunt their assets and be adored, and are always up for giving new things a go.
Sexual compatibility: A fellow air sign, a Libra will feel comfortable expressing their sexual desires with an experimental Aquarian.
Something to try: The good old 69 – the pinnacle of balanced lovemaking.
The most sensual sign of the zodiac, Scorpios are passionate and intense in the bedroom, and see physical intimacy as a crucial part of a relationship. Expect steamy antics like power play and role play, incredible sexual prowess, and a foray away from the traditional positions.
Sexual compatibility: Similar in their sexual nature and need for a deep, emotional connection, a Taurus and a Scorpio can have a sex life so magnetic that is so intimate it’s almost obsessive.
Something to try: Fifty. Shades. Of. Grey. Get your handcuffs and whips – Scorpios were born to dominate in the bedroom.
Bold and adventurous, Sagittarians always approach new sexual experiences and ideas with gusto, and love an element of challenge or risk. Valuing the importance of humour in their sexual relationships, a playful Sagittarius wont take it all too seriously, and will always be opening to broadening their horizons in – and out of – the bedroom.
Sexual compatibility: For a similarly daring sexual partner, Sagittarians need look no further than fellow fire sign, Aries. But, for a kindred playful spirit who places more value on laughter and emotional connection than the physical act of sex, then finding a Gemini is the goal.
Something to try: The thrill of outdoor sex could be just the ticket for the adventurous and playful Sagittarius.
