Here's Your Go-To Post-Sex Habit, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
Lately it seems as though any part of your personality can be attributed to your zodiac sign. Star signs can tell you a lot about your values or your compatibility with friends or partners of other signs. Often, people use astrology to learn more about their own sexuality, so it makes sense that your star sign could give you some insight into your post-sex habits too (we all have them!). You may not have even noticed, but whether it's going in for a cuddle session or reaching for the phone to quickly order yourself an Uber, you definitely have a go-to post-sex routine.
Enter: Awkward Essentials, home to some of the most innovative post-sex hygiene products around. The company is notorious for helping people clean up unwanted messes, and recently shared what each star sign says about people's messy post-sex habits. They're pretty spot on, so keep reading to see yours.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
I-n-d-e-p-e-n-d-e-n-t, do you know what that means? You're not that into deep emotional connection. People born under the Aquarius sign don't even need to find someone else to please them sexually — they got this! As an avid advocate of self-love, you're all about taking care of you during and post-pleasure, and we love you for it.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Compassionate and empathetic, Pisces enjoys a long chat after sex (hope you've got time). They'll dive into their feelings and will want to get to know their partner on a deeper level. Unless you're looking to get cuffed, this *might* sound like a bit of a messy situation.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Competitive and dynamic, this sign enjoys treating sex like a game. In other words, you won't finish last with your Aries lover, if you know what we mean. If you don't get to the finish line first, they'll definitely call for a rematch. Bring it on!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Practical and sensual, the Taurus loves to cuddle and give their partner massages – anything to continue that physical romantic touch. If you're planning on getting down and dirty with a Taurus, be prepared to be the little spoon.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Expressive and curious, Geminis are known to let it all unload after the deed is done — in a nonsexual way. This sign has been known to cling to a partner, or even a one-night stand (eek). If they've been hurt before, it's safe to assume they'll feel stung as you get dressed to call your Uber. They might even ask whether or not you're still talking to an ex. Expect a lot — maybe a little too much — from your Gemini lover.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Sentimental and compassionate, Cancers are generous lovers. Even after they've made you orgasm once — or maybe four times — this sign will go above and beyond to make your experience memorable. Expect to be showered with gifts after your sensual lovemaking session. Or, even better, a coffee and bagel in the AM in true rom-com fashion. Score!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Leos are all about the drama, so they might do things like start texting their ex while you're still in bed together. And, let it be known, this sign can sometimes thrive off of stirring the pot. If you find yourself lying naked next to a Leo, take deep breaths. You'll need them for your orgasm and to keep your cool.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Virgos are known for loyalty and practicality. They'll follow your body language and let you take the lead to see if you're interested in something more than a one-night stand. If you're not feeling it, they'll offer to call you an Uber and carry on. But, if you choose to stay over, you can expect them to treat you like a sex god and worship the ground you walk on the next day.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
For Libras, physical attraction and satisfaction are just the tipping point; this is a sign that values mental connection and good communication. You can expect to feel good by talking about your day, just as much as you will later that night.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
The typical swooner of the signs, Scorpio is ready for round two before round one ends. The only catch is, it may not always be with the same person. Scorpios are fiery and intense, and they can't be held down. Unless of course, they want to be . . .
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Like Scorpio, the Sagittarius is ready to mingle. The only difference is, they leave the drama at the door. Adventure is the name of the game for Sagittarius, and that also applies to sex. Expect jokes about your encounter the next day, but all in good fun. This just means they like you.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Capricorns are the most stoic of the signs. They are extremely reserved, to the point where you may think they aren't interested in you at all. Once you break down that wall, however, you are in for a wild ride. Just don't expect them to be comfortable around you the next day without clothes on.
