"What's your zodiac sign?" might not be the first question you ask before getting into bed with someone, but there's a reason for getting those details before hitting the sheets. It turns out that the stars might be onto something when it comes to your love interests — sexual chemistry is a pretty important part of a relationship, and there are certain sexual traits and strengths you might have in the bedroom, depending on your sign. That doesn't mean that if you're a Sagittarius, you should immediately turn away from a Cancer — but you might have steamier sex with an Aries, a Gemini, a Leo, or an Aquarius.
Astrology and sex go hand in hand. No matter which sign you choose to woo, taking a peek into your partner's sexual tendencies can help you better understand their likes and dislikes and how to best be in sync — which is why we chatted with astrologer Valerie Mesa for some sex astrology insight. Hopefully, her advice will not only make sex more enjoyable, but inspire passion that will also carry over into other areas of the relationship to create greater intimacy and trust.
