Sexual Style: For being a cerebral and verbal Air sign, Geminis are stimulated mentally first and physically second
Turn-offs: If you push her up against a wall or show up at her house in a kinky costume, your Taurus will probably run shrieking. These traditionalist Earth signs aren’t into hard come-ons or warped fun.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Once you’ve got him excited, drag him into the bedroom before he gets distracted, since Gemini’s minds wander easily. Sex is sure to be hot and heavy, and probably pretty chatty.
“They like to talk during sex; they like to talk about sex,” says Vega. Lounging around makes those born under the sign of the Twins nervous, so don’t take it personally when your Gemini wants to get out of bed after he climaxes.
Turn-ons: Steamy conversation and novelty. Tell him what you’re going to do to him, and, better yet, make it something he’s never had done before. Mix it up: A Gemini changes his mind often, so he may like rooftop action on Tuesday and a personal lap dance Wednesday.
Turn-offs: The dreaded cling. Don’t act needy with a Gemini; though they can be happily monogamous, they want to at least feel free.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Sexual Style: “Cancers don’t just fall into bed,” says Vega. For the most part, the extremely emotional Crab wants a relationship, and once she has you in her claws, she doesn’t want to let go.
These intense, serious, possessive lovers zero in on one partner with whom to engage in all of their favorite sensual activities. While they may be shy initially, they’re tender and deeply affectionate once they feel comfortable.
Turn-ons: Some great food and loads of trust. Make your Cancer an elaborate meal and let her know she can be vulnerable with you, and you may just have her pleasing you forever.
Turn-offs: Whatever you do, don’t hurt her feelings or even think about straying. This super-sensitive Water sign is easily offended, and, since she has the best memory of all zodiac signs, she will never forget precisely how you’ve screwed up.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Sexual Style: The self-mythologizing Leo wants to be a star and is as dramatic in bed as in life. The Lion craves recognition and an audience, and if you keep applauding him, he’ll keep satisfying you. “They want to be stroked, literally and physically,” says Vega.
These natural-born lovers are exceptionally sexual, inventive, and devoted. They don’t take no for an answer, so why bother? Give in, and let them put on a one-Leo show just for you.
Turn-ons: Endless flattery. Tell the magnetic Leo he is gorgeous, witty, and fabulous in bed. His libido will skyrocket, and you’ll reap the significant benefits.
Turn-offs: Bossiness. The Leo must be in charge, or at least think that he’s in charge. So if you value your peace of mind, you won’t try to tell your Leo what to do.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Sexual Style: “Everyone thinks the Virgo is chaste, but they’re just fastidious,” says Vega. They like to get it on in a clean and lovely environment. They’re sweet, romantic, orderly paramours who thrive in calm relationships and often prefer to be the less aggressive partner.
Even though they may act shocked when you suggest something naughty, they’re secretly thrilled. So coax your Virgo into that acrobatic contortion you read about in the Kama Sutra and as long as she doesn’t pull her hamstring, she’ll be as happy as you are.
Turn-ons: Fresh sheets, a traditional courtship, routines. Treat them carefully, buy them fine gifts, read them poetry, and generally work with their precious, old-fashioned sexual sensibilities.
