how each zodiac sign has sex

We’ve all been there: you want sex but are between relationships. You’re an independent woman and you decide a night of fun with someone you barely know or even a friend is exactly what you need and you hook up with someone. As long as you’re careful and play smart, it’s no one’s business what or who you do.

For some people, it’s not that easy for them to hook up with someone. They may check their horoscope for advice, but still feel guilty or like they’re doing something naughty. Maybe they’re religious and having sex with someone they’re not married to feels wrong. Or maybe it’s not the kind of thing they do all the time.

You may be totally cool with hooking up with someone but feel as if you’re auditioning for porn, so you use all your best moves.

No matter how casual your hookup is, it’s still extremely intimate and sometimes that can add an awkward element to it. Should you stay once all the fun is over or unobtrusively make your way out the door? If you do stay, is it okay to borrow a toothbrush or should you always carry your own like you do with a condom?

You always want to be safe and you need to be able to communicate to your partner, what’s okay and what definitely isn’t.

How do you approach your partner if you’ve got a real kinky side to your sexual self? You want to get off but you don’t want to alarm this person you barely know. Are you too intense for some people? Or maybe do you get the giggles when you’re nervous and appear as if you’re not taking things seriously.

Hookups can be complicated, so it’s fantastic when you can get some insight into how each zodiac sign has sex and the kind of hookup you will be. Thanks, astrology!

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You're the kind of hookup who isn't into a lot of preliminary fun — you want to get down to business right away. Foreplay isn't your thing when it comes to hookups. You can be pretty adventurous and wild and you really keep your partner on their toes.

You give as good as you get, maybe a little better as long as you get your needs met. You like a lot of variety, and if things get too emotional or mundane, you're out of there.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

There are cuddling parties but if there could be cuddling hookups, you'd be in heaven. You're very sensual and love touching and indulging in the senses. If your partner is coming to your house, they can expect candles burning, fresh flowers, appropriate music playing, and food that can be used for more than a snack.

If you're going to someone else's house, if they're a slob or have no style, that could destroy your lady-boner. You like being seduced and courted, so it's more romantic than just sex for sex's sake.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Here's a likely scenario: you're sexting with someone and get so turned on that you decide on hooking up that night. You need that kind of mental stimulation to really get you going and dirty talk in any way does it for you.

You want to hear about all the things your partner is going to do to you and you get extremely imaginative in regard to what you'll do back to them. You like to mix it up so sex will involve many different locations, positions, and possible role-playing.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

It's rare that you have a one-night stand because you need to connect with your partner on a deeper level before you can be intimate with them. That doesn't mean that you never see someone just for sex, but that if you do, it's someone that you've established some kind of attachment to and with them.

You're an intense lover and dedicate yourself to making sure that your partner is satisfied and spent when you're done with them. Everything you do has an intense element to it, and sex is no exception.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Nothing turns you on more than someone praising you and telling you how great you are. You want to stand out and be the star of everything and that includes everything sexual. You're a flirt, so it's not unlikely that you would be in a bar and would strike up a conversation with someone and before you know it, you're back at their place having sex.

You want to make sure that they think of you as the best they've ever had, so you'll pull out all the stops. You can be a real lion when it comes to sex and things can get wild in the bedroom with you but you've never had any complaints.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

People assume that you aren't much of a hookup and it's true: you need a certain comfort level before you can really let go, and when that happens, you can be wild. Yes, you like romance and the expression of love but you also enjoy getting freaky.

You're game to try almost anything at least once and you also like working to perfect your moves. You might not have the hugest sex drive in the world but when you want sex, it's powerful.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You want everybody to like you and if that includes having sex with someone that you're not totally attracted to, so be it. You try to find something attractive about almost everyone. You love to please and if someone needs some sexual healing, you'll do your best to make them feel better.

You're a "love the one you're with" kind of person, and if you're with a bunch of people, you have no problem loving all of them.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Everyone assumes you're having sex right and left but the truth is, as sexual as you are, you'd rather be celibate than have sex with someone just because you could. You're not into hookups particularly; you're into intense, hot sex with someone you're in a relationship with.

You're observant and by the time you start having sex with someone, you already know what to do to drive them wild with lust. You pride yourself on being able to satisfy and you try never to neglect your own sexual appetites.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You're the queen of the hookups. You don't want to be tied down and the thought of only having sex with one person for your whole life is sobering to you. You're very adventurous in life and in bed, and you keep your partner guessing about what you're going to do next. You like to take risks and not against having people watch you.

You have fun when you're having sex and you don't think it has to mean anything other than two consenting adults enjoying each other. If your partner is lucky, maybe they'll get a repeat performance from you; if not, they'll probably never see you again.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Hookups make you uncomfortable. You don't mind revealing your sexual side if you know you can trust your partner but having sex with a stranger isn't really your thing. When you are with someone you trust and are attracted to, that's when the fun happens.

You may present as being straitlaced and old-fashioned, but you have a major wild side. You love to role play, experiment, and have a very erotic imagination. Once someone has been with you, they usually want more which is okay with you because you like to have marathon sex sessions.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You're very intellectual, so to get really turned on, your brain needs to be stimulated. Once you're turned on, you get very passionate and wild. You tend to be kind of reserved so casual hookups generally aren't your thing.

You're willing to try new things if presented in such a way that it seems unique and different. You're not like anyone else, so you don't want having sex with you to be like anyone else either.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You like sex. You like sex with a partner, and you like sex with a casual hookup. Since you've got an amazing imagination, it's not surprising that you bring a lot of creativity to sex and are known for surprising your partner. You tend to enjoy being in the submissive position.

You tend to care about the people you have sex with and they might start out as a hookup, BUT they'll end up as a special friend. When it comes to sex, you're equal parts emotional and physical which means you're the ideal partner.
