Those born under the sign of Virgo are relatively cold and reserved in the pleasant game of love. They seem to analyze their own behavior and that of their partners. As a rule, they wholly surrender themselves to a delightful infatuation only once in their lifetime, usually, when they are very young. After the first love disappointment (later they consider it a period of emotional and intellectual weakness) most Virgos accept a fixed, clinical viewpoint on love.
Because of this fear of disappointment Virgos have a very cautious attitude towards love and sex. A typical Virgo personality is highly critical, over-analytical, too prudent, and selective, which explains why they tend to consider sex a freak of nature, given to the mankind merely for reproduction. Once they acquire this negative, self-denying attitude, all they see is pain and tragedy of love, but very little joy and delight.
Sadly, these impossible moral standards of Virgos are the reason why astrologers associate this sign with the Virgin.
Although those born under this sign would hardly agree with us here, but they value a highly intellectual, long-lasting relationship more, than a hot sexual relationship. Although relationships of the first kind are quite rare in their life, after each disappointment they become less and less demanding. Deep inside their mind, Virgos would be happy to get rid of this strict cold attitude and plunge into wild passions. But this means that they would also have to get rid of their critical mind and act only physically. That they cannot do, and don't really want to, either.
Thus, Virgos are among the great "hermits" in the zodiac family, for they tend to enjoy love pleasures on rare occasions, only by necessity.
When Virgos do find contact with the opposite sex, they can hardly ever be open and passionate. These people are rather snobbish and very selective. They choose intellectual partners that can put up with the clinical coldness of Virgos in love.
Virgos are always ingenious things in everything (even if they don't want to be so), even in sex. However, when they sometimes choose to show their maternal feeling, this is nothing but showing off only to be praised by people. They want to make others believe that they too have maternal feelings and strong emotions
But maybe we are too severe on our Virgos. Many of these are aware of their reserve and try to speak about their affection, add fire to their love to preserve peace and harmony and then go back to their beloved work.
Virgos often hate affected signs of love and cannot stand to be caressed.
Virgos very well observe things but, unfortunately, they cannot share their observations with others not minding the consequences. They seldom tell lies, and never lie to themselves.
Let's turn to positive sides of Virgos. When this coldness of theirs is revealed and accepted in married life, they become faithful and reliable partners. Virgo-born men provide for the family, and women become true perfect wives.
Those born under the sign of Virgo may be hypochondriac. These people take different kinds of medicines for imaginary diseases and follow various hygienic procedures and precautions before sex.
