The Astrology of Kink: The Sagittarius Adventure

Leather and lace, fringe and fetish … in this series, we’ll take a peek at the kinkier side of the zodiac. Each sign has its own distinct sexual flavor; by combining the various tastes you find in the natal chart, each person’s unique sexual recipe begins to emerge. What makes the Sagittarius so special?

Sagittarius is represented by the Centaur, half-human, half-horse. Ever visit a stud farm during breeding season? Equines who are otherwise decent-enough working animals are insane with the urge to breed; the only thing standing between the animals’ urges and utter rutting chaos is the intervention of human handlers.

It’s lucky for the rest of us, then, that Sagittarius has its human handler built in — if they’ll stoop to obeying him or her, that is. The sex drive is strong, impulsive, and somewhat conquest-oriented, and some Centaurs end up with more notches on their bedposts than Virgo has little pills.

Sagittarius has the ability to easily separate sex from emotion. Security and intimacy are important to Sagittarius, but are not necessarily linked to their fiery physical drives. Spontaneous sexual adventures and one-night stands are usually guilt-free; Sagittarians hate restrictions of all kinds, and the occasional bout of unrestrained sexual freedom can be deeply satisfying in a way that other signs might not readily understand.

Sagittarians also make fantastic sex workers, especially if the job calls for live action on demand. They’re not necessarily the show-offs of the sex industry, but practicality and physical vigor more than make up for any lack of showmanship.

This is a mutable sign, and its ruler Jupiter lends a cavalier streak — Sagittarius will try anything once. They’re not fond of labels (labels equal limits) but will sometimes compromise outwardly in order to maintain security at home. Hence, you find a large number of naturally pansexual Sagittarians maintaining the appearance of a monosexual relationship, while dallying elsewhere with members of both sexes. They’re also attracted to the idea of open relationships, but, like their opposing sign Gemini, sometimes find even open agreements tough to keep; restrictions are restrictions, after all, no matter how generous!

Oddly enough, Sagittarius tends to pick up specific fetishes more readily than any other sign except for Virgo. Stocking fetishes, latex fetishes, more esoteric fetishes like pony play or other role-specific “musts” … you name it, a Sagittarius will adopt it, at least for a little while. The difference between Virgo and Sagittarius is persistence; a Centaur’s fetishistic interests tend to fade abruptly. This sign explores things thoroughly, yes, but then moves on to the next unexplored sexual arena with little warning and even less regret.

Both Mars and Venus in Sagittarius are equally prone to this adventurous outlook on sex. The Sagittarian Sun shares it, too, but most Centaur Suns tend to settle down eventually, and turn their expansive urges toward less physical conquests. No Sagittarian can tolerate excessive restrictions, though, no matter how settled they seem. Confinement is always uncomfortable, and when the horizon of possibilities begins shrinking around them, it’s only a matter of time before they react, with all the desperation of a claustrophobic mustang in a broom closet.

If you’re the kind of person who values spontaneity, adventure and fiery independence over certain security, you’ll love Sagittarius. Give them plenty of room to explore all the fascinating experiences life has to offer, and you’ll have a lover who is affectionate, playful and vital. Try to fence them in, and all you’ll have is an empty paddock. Think you can handle this free spirit? If you can, it’ll be the ride of a lifetime.

  2. The sex drive is strong, impulsive, and somewhat conquest-oriented <—-yes, yes, and yes. AND we brag about it to our friends. Unfortunately, my sex life has been a tad lacking as of late. I'm going to work it out in pole dancing class tonight.

    Sag season is coming and I will be ready.

  4. @Sag24/7 .. oh gosh… so these past few months I’ve been in a relationship with a Gemini and at times I feel suffocated and feel like I want out but I really like him, he treats me well and although completely different we get along great, we both are super sporty, intellectual, ambitious and sex is great… But I tried telling him I needed my space and he took that as ‘I wanted a break’ and was very offended and sad… Does this happen to any of you? I feel tied down 🙁

  5. all the time, which is why i dont even get into a relationship. i need space and plenty of it. doesnt mean that i dont love the other person, i just only need them around me 3 or 4 days out of the week.

  6. @Sag24/7 Long time no talk!!
    Anyways, I probably see him around 3 days/week but constant texting and calling… I think that might be the reason why I feel like this. It feels like he always wants to know what I’m doing and even if I’m doing nothing, it annoys me. I had this dinner the other evening with some girl friends and he offered to drive me back to my place from the restaurant ‘just to be nice’ but I take it as he wants to know who I’m with and what I’m doing at all times because he always asks about them and how I know them and what they do…. AGhh….

    I need mental independence as well, but I’m passive aggressive about it so I started seeing again this old Aries flame… He’s a super super hot Abercrombie-like model who I had ended things with to be with my current Gemini bf. I get along much better with the Aries boy who is like totally in love with me, I told him my biggest life secret and he’s totally ok with it whereas I would never tell Gemini bf. And sex is also incredible but the intellect isn’t there…. Ughh. I just want both at small dosages.

  7. oh my, you told him your biggest life secret. im impressed! that gave me shivers….and scorpios think they have secrets 🙂

    Ughh. I just want both at small dosages.
    @supersagigirl, isnt this the best possible outcome for everyone involved? although, why dont they see it like that? lol… we want a few boyfriends, variety is the spice of life. just like neopolitan ice cream; 3 flavors one box!!!!

    ok ok, not trusting the gemini with your biggest secret. not a good sign girly and you know it!! what is it abotu the gemini thats got you flying back to the arms of security?

  8. you make me jealous, finding someone who you can share your secrets with. that says alot…..

  9. I have Mercury, Venus and Saturn in Scorpio so I’m super secretive and have a pretty big one… I get off on having that secret because it’s my choice 🙂 hahaha I wouldn’t mind telling you in a personal message.
    Anyways, the Gemini guy is super super intellectual and also very bright, our conversations go for hours and he can be a bit of a challenge 🙂 I really admire him for his ambition and determination… He is also very poshy and likes good things as I do so we get along in that sense and by being a man of luxury it makes me feel special and proud… Like some sort of distinct horse breed haha. But yeah, he’s judgmental and a bit too old school for me in his way of thinking…….
    How is your SassLife going? 🙂

  10. i just requested you. we have some sag business to discuss

  11. Discordant says:

    I am going thru that right now. I am with a Cancer guy, so intellectual, kind, and freaky in bed … but I can’t stop thinking about seducing this coworker that I know has to have a thing for me. I’ve had a little crush on him for years. Why are we always about the damn conquest?!? I don’t want a relationship with the other guy but there is always something so potent and sexy about the chase for me..

  12. @kate

    I’m a Sag sun/venus/rising with Scorp in Mars, so no, I ain’t quick in the sack, bud.

  13. I just love the astrology of kink, especially this one. Talking about studs and wild Equines turns me on. haha!These men have the tendency to tap into their wild side while having sex. They can be as wild and liberating as they can be, leading you to a mind-numbing orgasm.

  14. SecretVirgo says:

    My boyfriend is a Sagtarius and for the longest time I have hidden many of my interests from him. But after seeing this I might have enough courage now to tell him. I never knew they were all so adventurous. Truly Virgos and Sagatarius are meant to be together. Thank you so much!

    Hey Sags! Leo woman here! If you’re having any problems with other signs not being able to keep up with you both sexually and intellectually then go hunt yourself a lioness! My 2 ex boyfriends are Sags and my current man is a Sag. I jokingly call myself “Sagittarius Kryptoniate” lol. Sag men tend to fall for me fast and hard and don’t mind committing to me either. One of my exes wasn’t sure about me at first, I didn’t pressure him, I just told him to go out and do what he wants but I did stop sleeping with him and remained distant but friendly. This archer hated it! After a month of dating multiple women, he came back because no woman was as exciting as I. One relationship ended because of long distance the other because he I broke up with him. My current Sag is the best of the all! He wanted to hang out with friends a lot so I let him. Eventually, he began to choose me over his friends as time went on then he finally admitted his feelings for me and now we are like best friends who have explosive sex!

  16. moonvenusgirl says:

    Hello Sags! i have a question. If you had to choose between a libra, gemini, and aquarius who would you choose??

  17. The bit about sags being ideal porn stars rings true. At least for me. I’m a leo woman and I swear I can smell the pheremones of a sagittarius man from miles away if I’ve just come out of a relationship and find myself single.

    Sag men are the perfect partners for short term, mind-blowing, kinky, filthy, insane, no boundaries relationships. It’s like they were designed for perfect sex! I have a mile long list of fetishes and far too much energy and only sag guys have been able and willing to go all the way. They will try anything, can match my intensity, have the same wit and charisma and we do everything to the extreme while it lasts. We bring out the core parts of eachother. But it can only be a short term thing. You can’t party that hard for that long!

    In a long term relationship both of us need more stability and calm from our other half. Leo-Sagittarius relationships can be extreme in all senses, which is great for volcanic romance and sex but not conducive to getting on with the other necessary parts of life. If I tried staying with a sag then I imagine it would be like one massive cocaine party and that would end badly! Sagittarius men seem to love their freedom, so it’s never been an issue when we part ways after an amazing time. It’s ideal.

    They are great in non-sexual relationships with leos too. My two closest friends are sags and we completely understand eachother. We don’t have limits, will discuss anything, and totally ‘get’ one another. They can be completely open and blunt (as sags tend to be) and I have a huge enough ego to take it, and they don’t mind my big creative or business projects as they enjoy tagging along for the travel and adventure it can entail. We work well together.

    Love to all the sagittarius people out there!

  18. My sex drive has drastically diminished over this past year. I just ended a relationship with a controlling Libra though.. maybe that’s why?

  19. Sagittarius is the SEX-tile of Aquarius (LOL). In anime, Sailor Jupiter (Makoto Kino) of Sailor Moon is the kind of woman a Sag is. I have a few family members who are Sags like my father, grandma on Mom’s side, half-sister on Dad’s side and my nephew. and my fave signer Christina Aguilera – oddly, Britney Spears and Taylor Swift are also Sags. I would get along great with Sagittarian women. +
