This Astrological Sign Got Laid The Most In 2016

Let's not shy away from the truth: The sex lives of others can be endlessly fascinating. Luckily, sex- and period-tracking app Eve has given us a whole new way to satisfy our inner voyeur. In an end-of-year roundup based on data from over 500,000 users who logged their sexual activity, the app identified which astrological signs had the most sex in 2016 — and no, for all their magnetism, it's not Gemini or Scorpio.

Turns out, the sign that got the most action this year was Aquarius. In other words, if you were born between the 20th of January 20 and the 18th of February, you may have had a particularly steamy 2016 — so, kudos. But other signs got plenty of pleasure, too. The signs that rounded out the top five were Virgo, Taurus, Libra, and Pisces. The bottom spot went to Aries.

Although research has shown that personality types can influence how often we have sex, science has all but ignored the sexual habits of the Zodiac. This is just to say that, even though Aquarians apparently had a good year, you shouldn't blame your innocent sun sign for the highs and lows of your sex life. You can identify with your sign for all sorts of reasons (if you do at all). What you do in the bedroom doesn't have to be one of them.

Of course, if you believe your sign is inextricably linked with your sexual self, may we suggest these sex toys and these positions?
