When You're in Your Sexual Prime, According to Your Zodiac Sign

We all hit our sexual prime at different times because the human body is a complex and miraculous natural wonder. But no matter when it is, it’s good to be on top. We’ve factored in your astrological sign to identify

when you’re likely to peak, sexually speaking.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19): College years

As the babies of the zodiac, Aries represent the pure sexual energy we often encounter from the ages of 18 to 22. Even if it’s sweaty, acne-riddled and awkward, they may really be the best years of your life—sexually speaking.

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20): Golden years 

Like fine wine and cheese, Taureans get better with age. They are incredibly sensual and can sustain their sexual peak well into their twilight years. 

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20): Extended adolescence

Geminis are youthful for longer than their astrological peers, and they embody the Peter Pan-ism of never growing up. So, their sexual prime extends way beyond the statistical average.

Cancer (Jun 21 - July 22): Reproductive age 

Reproduction is a huge theme for Cancers, even if they don’t literally want or have kids. Their sexual peak correlates to fertility, whether they are pregnant or simply in a position to nurture.

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22): Every day at noon

Leos are children of the sun, and they tend to come alive under its rays. Their sexual prime, then, correlates less to particular point in time and more to the sun at its strongest.

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22): Their exact demographic average

Virgos are rule-followers and perfectionists, so their sexual development usually follows the exact trajectory predicted for their demographic profile.

Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 21): Early 20s

As the consummate cosmic ingenues, Libras are in full flower, sexually speaking, in their early 20s. Past puberty, but young enough that it’s still an adventure. Tinder was basically made for you.

Scorpio (Oct 22 - Nov 21): 40s

Scorpios are famous for their intensely sexual nature, which burns slowly and consistently. They peak during middle age, then gradually cool down. 

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21): 50s

As the wisest sign in the zodiac, Sagittarians learn something new from every experience. So sexually speaking, by the time they are in their 50s, they’re in peak form.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19): First career milestone 

For achievement-minded Capricorns, they are on top sexually when they are on top of their industries—which means their sexual prime coincides with their first big career wins. 

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18): Every seven years 

Aquarians are always reinventing themselves, which means even their sexual lives get a regular makeover. Their ruling planet, Uranus, moves into a new sign every seven years, instigating a new (sexual) era.

Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20): Throughout their life

Pisces are a little bit more spiritual, and their sexual selves transcend time and space more than any other in the zodiac. For them, any time could be (sexual) prime time.
