Sexy Matches: The Hot and Not-So-Hot Combinations

Attention all Leos! If one of the not-so-hot combos has caught your fancy, don't despair: your passion, ardor, and fire may very well transform a relationship that classically is not hot into an experience that knocks your socks off.

Leo and Aries

No energy problems here. It's a combination of fire and fire, with Leo's star, the Sun, heating up Mars. These two signs have equal physical force, love to challenge each other, and can hold their own in any kind of sexual contest. They don't waste time on tedious preliminaries when passion calls.

Leo will want more seduction than Aries and will be a little less impulsive, but together these two have a fine basis for a relationship. Emphasize athletic positions and encounters.

Leo and Taurus

Astrologically this combination is considered challenging. Leo and Taurus are both fixed signs, enormously willful and very strong. If they spark each other's interest, they can have a dynamic time in bed. The operative word is if.

Leo's fire needs more oomph and pizzazz than Taurus's earthy nature usually has to give. Leo offers fireworks and exciting scenarios, and Taurus, naked sensuality. One night at a party with a good deal of sangria may make this combo rock. In the cold dawn, Leo will chalk one up to experience and move on.

Leo and Gemini

Fire and air and a lot of laughs are shared between these two signs. The sex can be adventurous, with lots of oral stimulation, which Leo loves. A Gemini woman will happily serve a Leo man, and that keeps Leo interested and rapturous. Leo man or woman likes a willing subject, but Gemini (man or woman) is not always dependable, and this may put Leo in a snit. This combo may easily restore their good humor and proceed to more pleasurable communication.

Essential

A great aphrodisiac for your Leo is champagne and caviar. It may not be the actual food, but the lifestyle these luxuries represent, that gets her panting.

Leo and Cancer

These next-door-neighbor signs share one trait: they both love to be adored. If, as lovers, they can switch roles and agree who gets the adoring today, the sexual combo can work. Leo is ruled by the Sun and Cancer is ruled by the Moon. These celestial objects embody masculine protection and feminine nurturing principles respectively, and a Leo man and Cancer woman may feel they owe it to themselves to explore this polarity.

After a time, the elements fire and water between these two signs wear on each other. If the relationship doesn't move into a romance and then a partnership, the sex will lose its kick.

Leo and Leo

In between each Leo's roar there is hot sex and a lot of fun. But understand that both people are vying for the other's undivided attention. Unless one Leo likes to give attention because that is the way they feel sexiest (this is not very usual), these two cannot stand a low worshiping quotient for very long. In other words, although they communicate well in bed, their relationship usually resembles a competition and fizzles.

Leo and Virgo

Fire and earth are their respective elements, and although these two come from different worlds, Virgo soothes Leo's need for attention and adoration. Virgo is a service-oriented sign, and Leo loves to be serviced sexually, romantically, and personally. Leo fires Virgo's somewhat pedestrian imagination, and he loves the way Virgo puts herself together — the understated, classy look. Leo can feel his insecurities have protection when Virgo is around, as she is likely to feel insecure too. Because of Virgo's flexibility, this combination can work; then, Leo gets to be the star.

Leo and Libra

Fire and air and a love of romance and sexual drama bring these two signs together. Their sex life is hot, and usually they are both so good looking that they attract each other easily. With the Sun (Leo) shining on Venus (Libra), there are infinite opportunities for sexy connections. Leo is the more adventure-some partner, but has such style that she may lead Libra into situations, positions, and practices that he never imagined. Leo makes him feel comfortable and a little naughty at the same time. This is a hot, winning combo.

Leo and Scorpio

What to say? These two fixed signs have the astrological challenge of being square to each other. In astrological terms, that means that they do not come together; however, in sexual terms, they may come together just hunky-dory because each gets off on the other's sexiness.

They are powerhouse signs, and Leo will enjoy trying to get Scorpio to acknowledge his majesty. Leo is overt and Scorpio is covert, and exploring all the ramifications of this duality makes for hot, intense, unusual, passionate sex. Front side, back side, oral sex, and sex toys are all possible with these two warriors.

Out of the bedroom, these signs may not have anything in common and may quarrel about everything. If an argument is a prelude to sex, it will fuel both lovers, but if it involves deciding which color the couch should be, it becomes extremely tiring.

Leo and Sagittarius

Fire and fire and the Sun and Jupiter rule these signs, respectively, and make this combination hot and openhearted. Together they have good-natured sex free from insecurities, and much contact with the darker side of each person's nature. Both these fire signs are very physical and enjoy athletic sex. The sole drawback for Leo is the Sagittarian tendency toward blunt comments. Leo needs compliments to get and keep the motors going, and Sagittarius is incapable of glossing over what she sees as “the truth.” So when Sagittarius says, “Your hair looked better yesterday,” she may not realize that it will take Leo awhile to recover from this assault, and the result may mean no hanky-panky for a while.

Fact

Leo is the most generous sign of the zodiac. Giving gifts, treating each other to dinner, and being hospitable are all necessary parts of a sexual connection. A Leo man may occasionally have a one-night stand, but usually sex is within the context of a relationship. He requires a lover who will be equally gracious and hold up her end of the social contract.

Leo and Capricorn

The Sun and the Goat have issues. Some of them can be solved in the bedroom, and some will not ever go away. This fire-and-earth combination can get together because they both enjoy status, social functions, and the world of passion. There is solid sexual energy between these two, and a love of ambitious sex. Leo is more playful than Capricorn and wants to fool around with foreplay before diving into the main event.

The issue between these two is timing. Leo is quick and Capricorn is slow. After a few weeks, the discrepancies here will become a drag and override the good sex that may have gotten these two people together in the first place. The good bank account/security issue is a powerful stimulant between Leo and Capricorn, but over time Leo will not be able to shine brightly with Capricorn's serious character.

Leo and Aquarius

These two are powerfully attracted to each other and can be a hot and successful combination for the short term. Part of the charge is their very different expectations in life. Leo is all about me and Aquarius is all about the group. As each sign woos the other to their way of thinking, they find lots to keep them busy in the bedroom.

Leo works to get Aquarius to acknowledge her wonderfulness, and Aquarius works to capture Leo's fire, ardor, and warmth. They warm each other. When Aquarius brings other friends into the relationship, not necessarily sexually, Leo gets jealous and realizes that she is not the one and only. This is the point where the signs may agree to part. But in the mean-time, they have fun.

Leo and Pisces

Leo likes Pisces's otherworldly, fantasy-oriented charm. The Fish's very elusiveness lures him into a hazy, romantic world that promises delights. Leo feels protective toward Pisces, and that brings out her more sensitive side, sexually speaking. This is a tender connection where Leo may not feel she has to prove herself because Pisces accepts her as she is. Both signs enjoy wine and other stimulants. Pisces may require these to keep up with Leo, and over time Leo will want a more solid, less emotional lover.
