3 Zodiac Signs Who Love Rough Sex & Don’t Care Who Knows It

Originally Published: 

Tender lovemaking is great, and if that's your sexual speed, then I highly recommend finding yourself a sweet and seasonal Taurean lover who will seduce you slowly from head to toe. However, if your sexual preferences run a bit more, ahem, 50 Shades, then you might want to seek out the zodiac signs who love rough sex, and who are proud to say they like to go at a more intense pace when they're hooking up.

While rough sex isn't for everyone, it's totally OK to embrace it if it's something that speaks to you. Just make sure you have a partner who totally understands consent and who'll respect yours, and vice versa. Because getting kinky and pushing the envelope is totally fine and totally hot, but ignoring consent never is. Got it? Cool.

So now that we're on the same page about consent, let's talk about which signs in the zodiac are most likely to be on the same kinky page as you, because while any of the zodiac signs are capable of going there, there are some who might have natural born skills and desires to play a little harder in the boudoir. If that sounds appealing, here are the signs to swipe right on (into your bed).

Aries (March 21 to April 19)

For Aries, sex (like all things) is about passion and following their adventurous, bold impulses. This sign loves to play on the edges and isn’t afraid to experiment and try new things. They get a thrill from the extreme, which translates perfectly into some rough play in the bedroom. But really, would you expect anything less from a fire sign who's ruled by Mars, the planet associated with passion and aggression? Aries definitely lives up to the hype in the bedroom, just keep in mind they usually like to be in control, and would prefer to play the dominant role with a consenting partner. They love the conquest of seduction and relish the prize when it's won, if you know what I’m saying.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

Scorpio has a reputation for being a ferocious lover, and it's well-earned. Because Scorpio is a water sign, they're extremely versatile in the bedroom — capable of being passionate, emotional, and deeply connected with their partner. But, they also have the ability to visit a darker, more mysterious place if they want to. This is in part due to their connection with Pluto, a planet that's all about power and transformation, so it really shouldn't be a surprise that this sign feels perfectly at home exploring all kinds of kinks. They have a flair for melodrama and are naturally intense, so role-play and power-play are definitely on the menu with Scorpio, who's very happy to play the dominant role and deliver both pain and pleasure (with consent) in equal measure.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)

While Scorpio and Aries are driven to rough sex by passion, for Aquarius, it's all about curiosity. This air sign has a deep desire to explore new sensations. As a non-traditional and inquisitive sign, they have an open mind when it comes to new experiences. They tend to be drawn to extremes, and their air-sign nature allows them to conform comfortably to any situation. Because of their ruling planet, Uranus (which is all about boundary- pushing, experimentation, and technology), don't be surprised if some toys come into play as well. An Aquarius lover is just about the furthest thing from vanilla you could ever have the fortune to encounter.

If you're looking for a partner who likes to play a little rough in bed, these signs know all the rules and how to break them (again, once more for the people in the back) with consent.
