Sex with a Virgo



To understand a Virgo man or woman’s sexual love nature, just keep the following three key facts in mind:

Virgo is an EARTH SIGN, so it’s practical, realistic and well grounded, and like all the Earth Signs is strongly oriented to the physical and material side of relationships. Virgo is also a MUTABLE SIGN, which means it adapts well to change but can be rather restless and hard to satisfy. Finally Virgo is ruled by MERCURY, the planet that symbolizes logic and intellect. From there everything else follows on:-


Let’s start by clearing up a common misunderstanding. Virgos get just as much sex as anyone else and there are no more virgins among those born under this Star Sign than any other Sign of the Zodiac. The purity associated with Virgo relates simply to these people's impeccable standards: when seeking a long-term sexual partner, they tend to be extremely fussy about who measures up and who does not.

What you need to know is that, surprisingly, Virgo is actually quite a sensual Sign. Like all the Earth Signs, it has a pronounced affinity with the physical aspect of sex. What’s more, the emphasis it places on detail and its fascination with learning techniques gives its lovemaking an unusual finesse. The Virgoan mantra of ‘practice makes perfect’ is something it’s happy to apply diligently to its sex life.

So to what, then, does Virgo owe its prudish reputation? Well, the analytical nature of this Star Sign does mean it tends to come across as rather cool and unromantic.

You see, Virgos are people who fret a lot about getting things right – especially where sex is concerned. When they’re making love, they’re more likely to be thinking about how they can improve their sexual performance rather than expressing their feelings.

Bear in mind too that, because this Star Sign is highly fastidious by nature, the messy side of sex can be a bit of a turn-off for Virgos. As people who hate to get dirty, hygiene and cleanliness are more of a big deal for them than for most other Signs. Sex, for Virgo, is sometimes less about passionate self-abandon and more of a clinical exercise.

This doesn’t necessarily mean, however, that Virgo is a cold Sign. It’s just that many Virgos aren’t particularly comfortable with demonstrative displays of emotion or dramatic, over-the-top outbursts. Normally quite shy by nature, they prefer to express their affection in tangible, down-to-earth ways: love for them is about actions, not just empty words.

Big worriers who don’t find it easy to show their feelings, Virgos are prone to internalizing their anxieties about their physical desirability – frequently making themselves ill in the process – and can often be a bit uptight around sex. To balance this, they need lots of reassurance that they’re actually perfectly okay!


The good news is that Virgos are rarely guilty of emotional infidelity to a lover. As one of the most cool and detached Star Signs, these people have a hard enough job coping with the feelings aspect of just one relationship, never mind two at the same time. Physical cheating comes more easily to Virgos, however. If they’re not getting enough practice with their regular sexual partner, they may indulge their fascination for quirky methods and techniques by experimenting with a quickie affair.


Virgo's sexual style clicks best firstly with Taurus and Capricorn, and secondly with Cancer and Scorpio. It tends to clash most with Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces.
