Gentle, romantic, and sweet are three words rarely ever get used to describe sex with an Aries. When Mars rules your zodiac sign, the planet of passion, aggression, energy, and physical desire, the sex is bound to be primal and next-level. As a fire sign, you naturally bring a fiery passion to everything you do. You genuinely love sex, and, thanks to Mars, your sign was practically made for doing it. Your sex drive is one of the highest among the signs, and you’re typically ready to go whenever, wherever. Not everyone can keep up with you, but the three zodiac signs most sexually compatible with Aries will definitely try.

"With the planet of action as their ruler, Aries tend to be extremely hot and action-oriented in bed," astrologer Clarisse Monahan tells Bustle. "Due to their spontaneous nature, unexpected sex is a huge turn-on for them. They're the master of raw, no-holds-barred sex and tend to prefer spur of the moment passion to planned dates. Sex with Aries is straightforward, and they tend to not like anything too contrived or cheesy."

Aries is a sign that loves the chase. When you see someone you want, you go for it without hesitation. You’re very direct, and you prefer partners who are vocal about what they want in bed. If you're looking for a partner who's a good match in bed, you may want to put your efforts towards the following three signs. According to Monahan, these are the three zodiac signs you're most likely to have the best sex with.

Scorpio (October 23 — November 21)

Sexually, this is a perfect match because both Aries and Scorpio have "lusty" Mars in common. According to Monahan, Mars is the modern-day ruler of Aries and the ancient day ruler of Scorpio. “All that passionate Mars energy lends itself to a lot of sexual chemistry, and in close quarters these are two signs that can’t wait to rip each other's clothes off,” she says. Truth be told, they may not make the best match outside of the bedroom due to their strong connection to Mars. They’ll likely butt heads a lot over who gets to be in control. So, this is one hot pair that will make the most out of being together while it lasts.

Sagittarius (November 22 — December 21)

These two spontaneous fire signs are always up for an adventure. Sex between Aries and Sagittarius is a lot of fun. They’re both willing to try new things, so their sex life will always stay fresh. Plus, they're both risk-takers, so sex in public is pretty much a guarantee. According to Monahan, Aries tend to gravitate towards partners who energize them and aren’t afraid to express their desires. Sagittarius is all about that. “As fire signs, they tend to be on the same tempo and are super impatient,” Monahan says. “Aries tends to want what they want and want it now, and Sagittarius can meet the challenge, no problem.”

Aquarius (January 20 — February 18)

Aries will take notice of Aquarius’ icy demeanor and will immediately think, “challenge accepted.” According to Monahan, Aries will always be somewhat “mystified” by Aquarius. They won't lose interest in Aquarius quickly, which is a pretty big deal for Aries. Aquarius, on the other hand, won’t be phased by the ram's need to dominate. In fact, they’d absolutely love that. “Both are extremely versatile, creative, and imaginative in bed, and they're already ready to try anything new,” Monahan says. “They’ll allow the other enough space to keep the chemistry sizzling. As they say, air fans the flames."
