The Cancer Sexuality - Traits and Characteristics

Cancer is the fourth sign of the Zodiac calendar and includes those born from 22nd June to 22nd July. Emotional and family-oriented, Cancer men and women bring the same qualities of sensitivity and nurturing to their sexual relationships as well.

Being in love

The Cancer is a complex personality and like the Crab whose sign they bear, they are tough on the outside but emotional and sensitive within. While a Cancer may take some serious wooing on your part, once committed to a relationship, they can be counted to stay away from affairs and do their best to make things work. It is common for Cancer partners to express their commitment as intense nurturing, whether you need it or not. So in a relationship with a Cancer, you might be pleasantly surprised to find that your girlfriend has baked you your favorite cake or that your boyfriend has remembered to bring a wrap along on a date night in case it gets chilly. But while they are sweet and caring on the whole, at times they can also come off as clinging and possessive, especially if you are the kind who lays great store by personal space and independence.

Above all, Cancer lovers need to feel needed in a relationship. Not for them the airy detachment of an Aquarius or the intellectual companionship of a Gemini. For Cancerians being in love means deep emotional intimacy. And just as they want to share tier innermost feelings with you, you can also trust them to be perfectly attuned to your needs and desires. Interestingly despite their deeply emotional personalities, Cancer partners are not good at demanding affection openly or verbally. They take time to emerge from their shells but once they feel secure enough in a relationship, they will love you with everything they have. However in order to develop a close connection with your Cancer lover, ensure that you are always willing to listen to them, share with them your own feelings and often be extra demonstrative to satisfy the unspoken craving for affection.

How to turn on a Cancer

The best way to turn on a Cancer is make your partner feel needed. In case of women especially make time for a prolonged foreplay and focusing on sharing your deepest romantic emotions as you snuggle with her in front of the fire or share deep kisses out on the porch. The most erogenous zones for Cancer men and women are the breasts, chest and tummy. So, while caressing your girlfriend, use a gentle touch and when she begins to get aroused, lightly suck on her nipples and run over her stomach with the tips of your fingers. Women of this zodiac sign are more likely than others to cry after making love, primarily because for them the experience is an intensely emotional one. So if you want to keep your girlfriend, be there to hold her hand amidst her sniffles and don’t simply turn over and start snoring. Female Cancerians are incredibly sweet and graceful and the perfect find if you like your women to be soft and feminine.

In order to seduce a Cancer man, Begin with tender loving romance that goes on all night long. He will love the feeling of your hands and fingers on his skin. Let your hands roam all over his body, brush gently along his cheeks, nibble, nip and lightly kiss him all over his face. Oral sex is another way you can be sure of pleasing your Cancer mate. Alternatively invest in some super soft, stretchy c­rings to bring you both some wild vibrations that will help make sure you enter the gates of paradise at the same time. There are few things a Sensual Cancer man enjoys more than crossing the finish line together ­ with the woman he loves.

Sexual fantasies for Cancer lovers are usually intensely private and romantic. Most of them are in fact related to water which is why a long bubble-bath with your partner can turn into a truly amorous experience for you both. Other erotic scenarios include moonlight, dreamy landscapes and the soft gurgling of streams nearby. For a special night with your Cancer man, turn out in a long flowing gossamer gown preferably in aquatic shades. Or if you are keen to arouse your Cancer girlfriend, treat her to a dinner by the beach and feast on exotic sea-food dishes, avocado or grapes. Finally, make sure that your lovemaking is gentle, unhurried and focused as much on giving as on receiving pleasure.

How to make it work

The secret to sexual compatibility with a Cancer lover is emotional intimacy. Unless you are willing to bare your own soul and ready to receive your partner’s confidences and deepest feelings, you are unlikely to enjoy sex with him/her. The best way to ensure that you have a great time in bed with your Cancer lover is to ensure that you come off as caring and giving out of it. Go on long moonlit walks with your girlfriend or throw a surprise party for your boyfriend, celebrating the anniversary of the first time you met.

Also remember that home and family score very high among the life priorities of both Cancer men and women. If you are not looking for a life partner, it is best to avoid playing around with your Cancer lover. Even in case of non-marital relationships, they are likely to avoid short flings and settle for long term partnerships. In case you want your Cancer partner for keeps, express delight in their nurturing personalities – for instance if your girlfriend prepares you favorite dish, don’t refuse by saying you are on a diet; refusal of food for Cancer women is like rejection of their love. The same affinity for home is evident in a Cancer male as well. For such men, the best kind of date night is a night in, cuddling with their partner and watching a classic black and white love story on DVD.

Above all, be careful of what you say to your Cancer partner and more so, how you say it. As this sign is sensitive to the slightest rebuff, if you reject your lover’s overtures or refuse to share your feelings with them, they can take these things quite personally. As long as you are sensitive to their emotional needs, you can find in your Cancer man or woman one of the most caring and giving partners of the zodiac.
