The Best Sex Toys by Zodiac Sign, According to an Astrologer
When picking a sex toy, reviews and budget definitely matter, but the stars may have the most impact. Finding the best sex toys by zodiac sign could introduce you to a whole new universe of pleasure—all it takes is an understanding of how your birth chart influences your sex life and personality traits.
“Your zodiac sign is your will and your desires,” says Lisa Stardust, a New York-based astrologer and author of The Love Deck. And based on your chart, you can get a pretty good understanding of what’s best for you in bed. Besides knowing your sign, Stardust recommends researching the plant that rules you. For example, Taurus is ruled by Venus, which is associated with pleasure and sensuality; Gemini, meanwhile, is ruled by Mercury, which is more connected to communication. All zodiac signs have unique sexuality traits and preferences—it’s just a matter of exploring and discovering what yours are.
To help you get the most out of your downtime, we asked Stardust to help us find the best sex toys for each zodiac sign. Whether you’re an astrology savant or a total newbie, keep scrolling to see what the stars have in store. Nope, this isn’t a horoscope—it’s even better. Just don’t forget the lube.
Stardust recommends a “high-powered” vibrator for Aries people. They’re ruled by Mars, the planet of sex and action, “which means that they have a really high sexual energy,” she says. A high-impact toy, like these vibrators that offer intense, moan-inducing power, can help them climax as often as they want.
“Taurus is ruled by Venus, and it’s a very sensual, physical pleasure-seeking planet when it’s in an earth sign,” Stardust explains. “It’s really important for them to feel physically connected to their sex toys and whoever they’re having sex with.” As such, Taureans should seek out a flexible, couple-friendly toy like the Dame Pom, or a finger vibrator like the Hot Octopuss Digit.
Geminis are very communicative, and Stardust notes that many of them like to talk about what turns them on before and during sex. One of the best ways to stimulate conversation (and orgasms) is through a kit, which allows you to discover new sensations both solo and with a partner.
Despite belonging to a water sign, Stardust says that Cancer placements love “anything that allows them to feel that energetic heat between people.” That means that it might be worth experimenting with a hot wax candle or a vibrator with a heating feature to unlock your most intense pleasure yet.
Leos have a strong heart chakra, Stardust says, which means that they’re a pleasure-seeking bunch—and one that likes to show off. The astrologer recommends a sex machine or thrusting dildo that can hit your G-spot and offer clitoral stimulation, especially in front of a mirror or when a partner can watch the show: “For a Leo, what’s hotter than looking at yourself while you’re having sex?”
“I feel like Virgo is the kinkiest sign of the zodiac,” Stardust admits. “They like to have sex 24/7, just not in a dirty room.” She recommends rechargeable sex toys that can be brought anywhere, allowing Virgo placements to add a bullet vibrator or clit-sucking action to any rendezvous throughout the day.
It’s a little-known fact that Libra rules the buttocks, Stardust says. We bet you know where this one is going: Members of the air sign might enjoy a little light spanking during sex.
Stardust says that Scorpio is another of the most sexual signs of the zodiac—and it manifests as a desire to control your partner (or be controlled) during sex. Thanks to their remote controls, these hands-free sex toys are ideal for experimenting during sex; the We-Vibe Sync is great for anyone, while the Lelo Hugo is a great sex toy for men.
This fire sign rules the hips, meaning that you might find intense pleasure in thrusting during intimate moments. With a partner, Stardust recommends a strap-on; solo, a flexible silicone vibrator offers endless configurations for humping, thrusting, and any other power moves you crave.
Capricorns like to be in control most of the time, but sex is when they get to sit back and be “ravaged,” Stardust explains. BDSM sex toys like handcuffs and blindfolds help build anticipation during foreplay—and ideal for letting someone else take the reins.
Aquarians might prefer to get a toy for their partner, Stardust explains, because their placement is among the least sexual signs. This way, you can still be involved in the pleasure, but from a distance. The right toy depends on your partner—vibrators, masturbators, cock rings, anal beads, and butt plugs are all solid choices.
Because of their water sign, Pisces may want to bring a waterproof sex toy to enjoy in the bath, Stardust says. With the right vibe and some sensual soaking salts, you might just be in for your best orgasm yet.
