First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes Libra in the baby carriage.
It’s no surprise that this easy-going autumnal sign likes to follow tradition. Libra (Sept. 23rd—Oct. 23rd) is a homebody devoted to creating the perfect domestic atmosphere for himself and the one he loves. This balanced sign does best when coupled with someone who isn’t just a match but is also a tried and true partner.
Put the heavy sex toy artillery down! While Libra is not afraid of exploring new sensual terrain, you don’t want to tip the scales too much with this symmetrical sign. To add some extra spice between Libra’s sheets, stick with the basics. An aesthetically pleasing high-end vibrator by LELO, an organically warming lube like Sliquid’s Naturals Sizzle or a vibrating cockring are plenty snazzy for this simple sign. Anything especially big, loud, strong or visually overpowering is sure to throw off Libra’s carefully calculated equilibrium, and that’s the easiest way to turn him off.
Don’t get too cozy in your standard missionary position, however, as Libra quickly becomes lethargic when she’s bored. If you catch Libra counting sheep instead of counting orgasms, get her back on track with some good old-fashioned courtship. Flirtacious Libra loves to be pursued, so showing a little extra interest will get you far.
If you ever cheat on a Scorpio, you will pay. Slowly, painfully, she will exact her revenge. Scorpios (October 24th—November 21st) are the ultimate investigators of the Zodiac. In any terrible movie you’ve seen involving hot, unfaithful sex ending in death at the hands of the romantically slighted, the avenged lover was probably a Scorpio.
Scorpios are determined, passionate and intuitive. If they want you, they will know quickly and will pursue you adamantly. This is a recipe for some hot, shirt-demolishing sex, most likely in a public place because they just have to have you right now or they’ll explode. Scorpios ooze a dark, mysterious, luscious sexuality and love to push sexual boundaries to their limits. If you can’t handle the highest setting on your vibrator, don’t bring it into Scorpio’s bedroom. If you want to try a new position, do your stretches. If you want to play with BDSM, Scorpio will make the perfect top. Just make a safe word.
Like their scorpion mascot, these little buggers are partially poisonous. Strong-willed, with an ever-present personal agenda, Scorpios can be domineering toward their partners, especially if they perceive them as weak. Make sure that your own romantic and sexual limits are being respected. Similarly, don’t cross Scorpio’s lines. Beneath that hard shell Scorpio hides her deepest, sexual secrets and if you ever want to discover them, you’ll have to tread lightly. When Scorpio does eventually find his right match, which takes time for this explosive sign, he’s very devoted and loving. Just watch the stinger.
Know-it-all Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st) wants to do exactly that: know it all. He’s full of questions and wants answers—now. To get your late fall lover to try a new oral sex technique, position or toy, you’ve got to do the research. Buy this intelligent sign a lusting library of how-to books like She Comes First by Ian Kerner or Blow Him Away by Marcy Michaels. Better yet, take this curious cat to a hands-on sex workshop, often held in female-friendly adult stores like Good Vibrations, Babeland or Northampton’s very own Oh My.
When trying something new with Sagittarius, prepare yourself for this bow and arrow carrier’s dead-on shots of honesty. If she doesn’t like something, she’ll say so. If you can’t handle direct feedback like “That just looks stupid” and “Your penis is too small for this position,” get out of Sag’s proverbial kitchen, because you can’t handle the heat. If you can, reciprocate, as mutual straightforwardness is key in connecting with this adventurer. The liberal nomad of the Zodiac, Sagittarius loves to explore, so remain open to new things. Beware, though, because with his wandering nature he hates being tied down. So put away the bondage rope unless you want a well-researched lecture on the history of free sexual agency.
