What To Expect After Sex, According To Your Partner's Zodiac Sign

by Cosmo Luce

Sex with every partner is different, and so is what you do immediately after you have sex with each one. I don't have a crystal ball, but I do have astrology to give me at least a vague idea of what you want and how you respond once the deed is done. Of course, just as every person's birth chart is different, the way in which you and each new partner interact will be different as well. What you might feel comfortable doing in one lover's presence is not the same as how you will respond to another's. It all depends on how your birth chart — especially the positioning of your Mars sign — relates to theirs.

Even though astrology isn't a flawless prediction of a person's behavior, and even though what you do in bed probably won't play out exactly the same each time, whether you are an air, water, fire, or earth sign definitely influences how you respond to intimacy. How each sign channels that energy — depending on whether it is a young or mature sign — also plays a role. There's a lot of difference between young Aries, the firestarter, and mature Sagittarius, the fire-eater. When each of these elements are given full freedom to play out, the pattern of after-sex behavior becomes clear.

Aries (March 21 To April 20): Tickle Fight

Aries is the fiery clown of the zodiac who loves making their partners laugh and starting a bit of trouble, too. They have a ton of fire and need to release it both in bed and out. If not tickling, then this is the sign most likely to finish sex and start having a pillow fight.

Taurus (April 21 To May 20): Asking For A Snack

Taurus' love to eat food almost as much as they like sex. This is the sign who is most likely to bring a cheese plate with them to bed. If you want to keep them in bed with you a little longer, try integrating more food into your foreplay. Every Taurus loves being covered in strawberries and cream.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20): Endless Pillow Talk

Hopefully, you are not a sign who wants to roll over and go to sleep after you have sex, because Gemini will want to stay up all night talking your ear off. The zodiac's chatterbox will give you all the details of their day, and if you don't reciprocate, they'll be hurt. Plan your pillow talk in advance.

Cancer (June 21 To July 22): Emotional Vulnerability

I'm not saying that a Cancer cries every time they have sex; I'm saying they cry every other time they have sex. When they're not crying, they will be talking about past traumas, and it will be very healing for both of you.

Leo (July 23 To August 22): Loud Laughs

This fixed fire sign is notorious for roaring, and after sex, they love to laugh in pleasure and delight. Not only is it endlessly adorable, but on these increasingly cold nights, their joy will keep the both of you warm. Hold your Leo lover tight.

Virgo (August 23 To September 22): Taking A Shower

You might want to cuddle, but Virgo just doesn't have the time. They need to shower so they can go to work and start saving up for their real estate license, and today is the day they designated in their planner to start.

Libra (September 23 To October 22): Bedtime Stories

Libra lovers are nurturers who also want to take time to show off romantically and intellectually. Having sex with a Libra will activate all of their mothering impulses, so don't be surprised if they want to baby you a little bit. Just sit back and appreciate the tenderness.

Scorpio (October 23 To November 22): Asking If You Came

If a Scorpio has agreed to have sex with you, it means they have decided you are worthy of enjoying pleasure with them, and they want to make sure you actually enjoyed it. Scorpios are notoriously direct, and even though they like to read between the lines, they take sex seriously. Don't be afraid to be honest with them about what feels good. A Scorpio can handle it.

Sagittarius (November 23 To December 21): Spacing Out

The zodiac's wanderer doesn't mean to be distant; it's just that their mind goes to other places after they have had sex. Even if they do cuddle with you, they'll probably be a little absent and withdrawn after sex. Don't try to chase after them. Be patient, and they'll come back around and be intellectually and emotionally intimate with you again.

Capricorn (December 22 To January 19): Sleep

These quiet kinksters are hard workers in every arena of their life. If you have sex with a Capricorn, they will give you their full attention and energy to the point of exhaustion. Just because a Capricorn needs their rest doesn't mean they lack stamina. Let your Capricorn recharge, and they'll soon be up for round two.

Aquarius (January 20 To February 19): Blowing Raspberries On You

Aquarius prides themselves on doing the irreverent and unexpected, so they love to make their lover laugh by surprising them with a loud, wet raspberry right on the neck. Even if you don't laugh, they probably won't care — as long as they find their own gesture funny, weirdo Aquarius will consider themselves a success.

Pisces (February 20 To March 20): Tucking You In

Pisces are the sweethearts of the zodiac, and this tender and sensual lover will want to make sure you are comfortable after they take you to bed. As much as Pisces wants to nurture you, keep in mind that they expect and need to be nurtured back. If you want to keep a Pisces forever, I'll let you in on a secret: Let them be the little spoon.
