If you're sexually active, you know that there are a number of traits about someone else that can determine whether you're attracted to them. You might find their sense of humor totally compelling, or you swoon when they gush about how much they love their passion project. According to experts, one more thing can determine whether you'll connect in bed, and it's not super obvious. The zodiac signs that are most sexually compatible don't all rely on pure physical attraction to determine who'll connect. Instead, everything from being adventurous to being wise with your money plays into the equation.
So what, exactly determines who you're compatible with in bed? "Having your Sun in the same element as your partner’s Sun ensures that your sense of selves will function in a very similar way," astrologer A. M. Penn, tells Bustle. "Fire signs will be very spirited, air signs are analytical, water signs are emotional, and earth signs are practical and materially-driven," she says. These characteristics might not immediately seem like they'd have much bearing on a sexual connection, but they're fundamental to influencing a person's priorities and desires. Having a Sun sign of the same element helps couples to better understand each other and to be more compassionate toward one another, Penn explains.
Of course, any zodiac sign has the potential to have great sex with any other zodiac sign. But for an idea of who might be compatible on a deep level, here are the signs that fit together sexually, according to experts.
