A person’s sex drive is about as individualized as it gets, but astrology teaches us that even our libido can be guided by the stars. While all signs enjoy sex, their intimate connections and need for physical touch are guided by their astrological placement. This leads to some signs being more naturally inclined to pursue sex (hello, Scorpio), while others are more likely to pursue it when their other needs are met.
12. Libra (September 23 - October 21)
It’s not that Libras don’t like sex, it’s just that they prioritize different types of intimate relationships, like friendship and family. Sex comes into play when they really want to demonstrate love and commitment, and they’re way less likely than other signs to engage in it casually.
11. Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Aquarius desires to be free above all, so they can get turned off from sex at the slightest hint that a sexual relationship will get in the way of that. This airy sign often has its head in the clouds when it comes to sex and can be a bit flighty when it comes to sexual connection.
10. Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Virgos are actually known for being adventurous in bed, as it’s one of the only places where they can truly let their hair down. The problem is actually getting them there. Virgos need a partner who will help them get out of their head, prioritize sex and unleash the freak within.
9. Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Geminis can take a little longer to warm up to a sexual encounter, as great conversation, intellectual stimulation and lots of laughs are needed to lubricate the mood. On the flip side, one wrong move and they’ll find themselves instantly turned off.
8. Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Capricorns have a reputation for being steady and conservative, but these traits can come in handy in the bedroom, especially when it comes to, er, stamina. Capricorns want to go the distance for their sexual partners and are more than willing to put in the work to keep them happy. Very, very happy.
7. Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Cancers prefer their sexual encounters to be meaningful and nurturing. They know that for sex to be truly enjoyable for them, they need to build trust, which can take time. And they’re more than willing to wait.
6. Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Pisces love sex and sexual connection, but their drive is totally dependent upon the connection they feel. Once it’s there, their sex drive is through the roof. If the connection is not there, their passion will go colder than an ice bucket challenge in Antarctica.
5. Leo (July 23 - August 22)
A Leo’s sex drive all depends on the other person. If they find someone who’s willing to treat them like the king of the jungle that they are, fiery Leo’s libido will be astronomical (pun intended). But when they meet someone who seems lukewarm or tries to play it cool, their sex drive will disappear faster than you can say, “u up?”
4. Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Flirty Sagittarius loves a fling, and as a fire sign they are fueled by variety. More than any other sign, they’re down for a casual romp around the bedroom. On the other hand, they can sometimes be a bit of a commitment-phobe, preferring variety in all aspects of their life. That said, a one-night stand is not off the table.
3. Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Aries is ruled by Mars, and Mars rules the sex drive, so you do the math. Aries love to seduce and enjoy the lead-up to sex almost as much as the act itself. Almost.
2. Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Sensual Taurus loves physical touch and pleasures of all kinds, so it should come as no surprise that they’re so close to the top of our list. And once the deed is done, they’re the sign most likely to follow things up with a world-class cuddle sesh.
1. Scorpio (October 22 - November 21)
Sexy Scorpios are notorious for their high sex drive, which is fueled by their need for adventure and intimacy. It’s not just a numbers game for them, though. Scorpios are also highly selective with their partners and hold high standards, meaning only VIPs get to see them unleash their wild side.
