What You Do That Turns Him On, By Zodiac Sign unsplash

Turning him on isn't hard – if you know what to do. And knowing what to do starts with knowing more about his zodiac sign. Like all guys in general, each zodiac sign needs something different to feel special and appreciated in the bedroom.

Think of it this way: If someone used the same moves on you that he used on everyone else he was with, there's a good chance it wouldn't work its magic on you. There are things that turn you on and things that are guaranteed to turn you off.

Learning more about your guy's zodiac sign can help you figure out what makes him tick.

But turning your significant other on isn't just about him liking dirty talk or roleplaying – it's about you initiating the dirty talk or proposing a new roleplay scenario for the two of you to try.

He might love a bunch of things you do in the bedroom, but depending on what his zodiac sign is, there is probably that one thing that turns him on more than all the rest.

The zodiac signs can also be categorized by what turns them on based on what element they are, which can help if you're looking for something new to get your boyfriend hot.

Air horoscope signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) are very drawn to intellect and mental stimulation, which can include making witty jokes and using communication techniques to tell them what turns you on.

Per astrology, earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) like having their physical needs tended to – use the five senses (food, massage, and the like) as guides for foreplay.


Fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) love it when you stroke their ego... and it doesn't hurt to just go right for the physical stuff, either.

And water zodiac signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) respond best to emotional connections and intimacy.

My point is, there can be a lot of factors that are influencing what turns your zodiac sign (or his zodiac sign) on, including the Sun and Venus signs, as well as the zodiac sign's element.


And, of course, it's important to take into account your partner's personal preferences, too. Here's what you do that turns him on, according to his zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries loves when you keep him guessing. He’s usually the one to take the reins in the bedroom, but when you tell him that you’re the one in charge, it really turns him on. He loves seeing your dominating, aggressive side, especially in the bedroom.


Your ability to keep him on his toes also turns him on because it plays right into his impulsive side. Aries gets bored easily, but when you keep him guessing what your next move will be, he can’t help but to look forward to what you have in store for him next. Don’t be afraid to boss him around and even punish him if he doesn’t behave. I promise you he’ll love it.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is very attached to any kind of physical contact. I mean, think about how you guys cook dinner together or watch Netflix – he’s always touching you, stroking your hair, or holding your hand, right? And he loves being in a relationship that has plenty of touching.


What turns him on the most is when you take that love and touch and turn it up to a 10. He goes crazy for erotic massages, as well as sensation play.

Taurus wants to know that he can let his freak flag fly in the bedroom, so anything from feathers and ice cubes to hot candle wax and riding crops are perfect for someone like him.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)


The easiest way to pique Gemini’s interest in the bedroom is to be creative. He loves all kinds of things in bed, but his favorite is being with a partner who won’t shy away from some freaky stuff. Roleplaying, different positions, toys: it’s all fair game!

While creativity definitely helps, the one thing that turns him on the fastest is when you tell him exactly what you want. Gemini loves when you speak up and being vocal in bed is incredibly sexy to him. He wants to know that you’re having a good time (not just hoping you are), so don’t be afraid to tell him what to do or how much fun you’re having.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is a sucker for romance, and if you want to turn him on, you should heavily rely on a lot of it. Going to so much trouble to woo and seduce him might seem old-fashioned, but it goes a long way with him.


The thing that he loves the most when he’s with you is how much emphasis you put on foreplay. So many couples try to rush through foreplay and get right to the action, but not you.

You want every time together to be intimate and romantic, so you use foreplay to help you work your magic on him. And every single time, he melts like butter in your hands.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)


Leo loves putting on a show in the bedroom – even if that show is just for the two of you. There are two speeds to this lion when it comes to intimacy: sensual and romantic and passionate and intense.

His sensual and romantic side loves the tender side of you, like when you’re just kissing or touching each other. The passionate and intense side of him gets turned on when you scream his name in bed and can’t keep your hands off of him.

And like I said, he loves a show, so if you’re comfortable in front of a camera, try something new with him (wink, wink) and use it as foreplay for another time.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)


Virgo loves the deep connection that comes with being intimate with you. One of his favorite things is being able to connect with you in as many different ways as possible.

In the bedroom, he wants a deep intellectual and emotional connection. What turns him on the most is when you remember the little things. Like how he loves kisses right behind his ear and when you scratch his back.

He always tries to give you exactly what you want in bed, and when you listen to his body and learn how he responds to different things, he gets very turned on.

He might even just tell you exactly what he wants, which you can store away in your big book of all things Virgo.


LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra might be all about balance and fairness outside of the bedroom, but in the bedroom, he loves a little chaos. You’ll see a very non-Libra when you’re getting intimate, too. He’s definitely one of those “gentleman in the streets, freak in the sheets” type of person.

What Libra likes most are situations where there isn’t much fairness (at least, not for one person): dominant and submissive roleplaying. Of course, he’s still Libra at heart, so there’s still a lot of romance during these play sessions.

And what turns him on the most? Making sure that you get yours. He’s not satisfied until you’re satisfied, which we can all agree makes him incredibly sexy.


SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

If you’re with Scorpio, then you know just how intense he can be in the bedroom. I mean, you really gotta stretch your muscles before you get started, you know? One thing is for sure: getting it on with Scorpio is really fun and passionate.

The thing that turns him on the most is getting out of his comfort zone. Always keeping the fun confined to the bedroom can get boring after a while, and he wants to keep the passionate alive with you.


He loves that you’re willing to get out of your comfort zone and try naughty things everywhere, like the bathtub, car, while camping in the woods, when you go home to your parents’ house for the holidays ... he loves it all!

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)


Sagittarius’ main goal in life is to have a good time and that counts double for his relationship. He loves being with you because he knows that you’re always up for a good time – and because he knows that getting intimate doesn’t always have to happen when you’re together.

What turns him on is anticipating being together. He likes when you send him sexy text messages, naughty pictures, and initiate phone sex because it gives him something to think about all day long.

And while he might not take life so seriously, he takes making you feel good seriously, so you better be ready to try everything you told him about earlier in your dirty texts because he’s very curious.


CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)


Capricorn is as much of a boss in the bedroom as his in the boardroom, so to speak. In other words, he likes being the dominating one who calls all the shots. What he likes more, though, is just how into you get, too.

What turns Capricorn on the most is when you encourage his dominating side in bed. He can be very kinky, so he likes knowing that you’re up for just about anything. He especially enjoys all varieties of BDSM play where he can make you scream.


He also gets very turned on when you come to him with new ideas and things to try together in the bedroom – Capricorn loves a team player.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius is very experimental in life and that carries over to the bedroom, too. He has a long list of things he’d love to try with you one day, and he’s very open about discussing these things, too (so don’t be shy).


He loves when you’re just as excited as he is to experiment with new things in the bedroom, but what he loves more is when you share some of your fantasies, too.

He wants to have fun in the bedroom too, and he gets turned on when you’re not afraid to suggest a new position or toy or third partner.

Aquarius loves being with you because you’re just as creative and experimental as he is in the bedroom.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)


Pisces is alllll about that fantasy life, especially in the bedroom. He loves bringing that fantasy to your relationship in a number of ways, and he’s really good at it, too.

He also loves being wooed, so he expects you to bring all of the romance and intimacy you can manage to the bedroom.

What turns him on the most is your ability to bring the fantasy world to life through roleplaying and dressing up or turning each other on just with your words.

And because he’s so into this fantasy world, he also loves it when you take things reallllyyy slow and draw things out.
