Sex has been a major part of astrology since any astrologer-historian can remember. Through out the history of astrology, sex has been a major component and never left out. As with humanity as a whole, sex is a serious pre-occupation of ours. Reproduction is certainly a function of our sexuality, but humans do not engage in sexual behavior to reproduce alone.
In astrology there are signs of sex, planets of sex, and sexual houses and aspects, that all correspond to our sexual appetites and desires.

PLANETS OF SEX:
The sexual planets all have physical and psychological chemical correspondences. They describe the ingredients, methods and procedures that enhance sexual experience. The sexual planets highlight the circumstances, actions and best days for the sexual experience. They can also be ritualized to invoke the mystical or magical aspect of the sexual experience.
The sexual planets are Mars, Pluto, Venus, the Moon and Eros.
Mars: The planet of Sex Drive, Sexual Motivation, Sexual Energy and Sexual Initiation. Mars gives us insight into our personal sexual style. It rules over our sexual desires ~ it’s that primal urge that forces us to act on what we want.
Pluto: The planet of Sex and the Lord of Sexuality. Pluto shows us how sex can empower or dominate an individual. It illuminates one’s sexual power and style while defining the best time, place, and person with whom to utilize that power.
Venus: The planet of Love, Romance, and Pleasure, representing sensuality and desire. Venus rules over the senses of touch, smell, and taste. It shows us how we like to be touched and what stimulates us sensually. Venus shows us some of the important “trappings” and foreplay that helps us get in the mood for sex.
The Moon: The planet of Feelings, Emotions, Instincts, and Attachments. The Moon shows us some of our underlying emotional needs that may express themselves as sexual fantasies. The Moon represents our emotional nature, and also affects our sexuality.
Eros: This Asteroid, known as Cupid, can reveal some of our erotic turn-ons, as well as the level of our erotic nature. It overpowers the mind with love and sex. Eros represents sexual objectification, passion, desire, and creativity.
As there are signs of Sex and Sexuality which are the psychological make up, there are the sexual HOUSES or the Sexual Stages where all the SEX for better or ill takes place. The Sexual Houses describe the circumstances, environments and sexual actions taken.
The 1st House ~ The house of Sexual Drive and Arousal. Our general likes and dislikes pertaining to sexuality are defined in this house. This house also has a lot to do with our favorite sexual positions, styles, attitudes, as well as what areas of the body to focus on to motivate sexual activity. More importantly, this house describes the circumstances, environment or psychological influences needed to get the PARTY STARTED, sexually of course.
The 5th House ~ The House of Recreational or Casual Sex. This house describes the circumstances, environment and actions that bring about the sexual experience whether consciously or unconsciously. This house will show the environment and circumstances under which casual sex is likely to be initiated and the type of sex which is the most fun and enjoying.
The8th House ~ The House of Procreational Sex. This house describes the circumstances and environment which results in procreation. Naturally attuned to Scorpio and its energy, this house also shows the positions and actions which stimulate orgasm. This house also illuminates sexual evolution and power.
Aspects or the relationships that the planets, signs and houses make to one another are very important. They will describe the path of how these planets interact and the results of their interaction. In the case of the sexual planets, signs and houses this illuminates the ease or difficulty, and the challenges and benefits of one’s sexual energy.
