“What’s your sign?” is a retro and often cliched pick-up line from the 1970s that died with disco and bell bottoms, right?
While this author hasn’t heard any pick-up lines in quite a while, astrological compatibility seems as though it is coming back with a vengeance. From quizzes about sexual chemistry to tips on how to attract the sign of your affection, many articles are still being written about the quest for the perfect match being dictated – or least influenced – by the stars.
But what does your birthday say about your sex life?
Representing your core personality, your zodiac sign can reveal your general attitude toward sex – what turns you on, how you set the mood, and your unique style of doin’ it. Knowing more about your zodiac sign can help you better understand what makes you tick – especially in the bedroom. Read on and determine for yourself if your zodiac sign holds the key to a more satisfying sex life.
