What are these crabs hiding?
Despite their tough exterior, Cancer, born between June 21 and July 23 and also known as Moon Children, tend to be the most extraordinarily attentive lovers among the zodiac signs.
Their personality traits make them thoroughly kind and thoughtful, which goes with the nurturing territory. They’re also extremely romantic — when they’re not being distant and moody.
But it’s usually easy to lure this critter out of its shell, either by giving them time and space to come out on their own or by showering them with a healthy dose of TLC.
Perhaps it’s due to their propensity for change, but Cancers are into role-playing, as long as the games are edgy. They favor slave scenarios and prefer to be the bottom.
It’s usually OK to be a wee bit mean and even aggressive to Cancer during game time, but it’s important to lay down the ground rules first.
However, even in Master/slave play, Moon Children need to know that they’re loved and cherished. They need constant reassurance and if they don’t get it, they are likely to stray until they find it.
Cancers tend to prefer sexual postures that most others find downright uncomfortable.
A favorite is lying on the side with one lover curled behind the other’s back — crablike, if you will. This works especially well for vaginal intercourse, as well as anal sex.
Moonies are notorious for being the Sun Sign that’s extremely attracted to breasts. It’s one (or two!) of their ruling body parts.
Cancer men can zoom in on this feature and nothing else, while Cancer women love drawing attention to their cleavage in daringly low cut blouses, naughty bras — or even better yet, no bras at all.
The flesh of their breasts (not so much the nipples) are especially sensitive to finger and tongue stimulation. Cancer men like to bring focus to this area of their anatomy as well, and will often shave their chests to heighten their sensitivity and visibility.
Another of this Sun Sign’s erogenous zones is the stomach.
Not very sexy, you think? Well, to a Cancer it is.
I know of several Cancer men whose ropes rise just from a little tummy tickling. For real. One confessed that he had difficulty reaching an orgasm unless his stomach was stimulated as well as his penis.
Cancer ladies often have prominent bellies. Not potbellies, but cute little poochies.
Remember that scene from Pulp Fiction where the adorable Fabienne extols the virtues of “Having a bit of a tummy … like Madonna when she did ‘Lucky Star””? Dollars to donuts, Fabienne was a Moon Child. And she was right — tummies can be cute.
Crabs are sometimes known as the bad boys and girls of the zodiac. With all of that nurturing and emphasis on hearth and home, they’re not the most faithful Sun Sign under the sun.
They can probably give a pretty convincing argument about why it’s a good idea to have an affair with them, even if you’re perfectly happy with your mate. You might actually find yourself seriously considering their proposition, if not succumbing to their charms.
However, this brand of behavior might have more to do with their insecurities and less to do with actual desire.
To keep a Cancer in one bed (yours!), it’s important that they are constantly reassured that they’re appreciated. A partner who’s constantly criticizing or berating them — like a Taurus might — has a good chance of chasing a Moon Child from their boudoir into someone else’s.
Due to their elusive nature, Moon Children won’t always verbalize their sexual desires to their partners.
Knowing what turns on a Cancer mate might be somewhat of a mystery, but it’s guaranteed that you will have a great time trying to find out. And be rewarded with a caring and comforting paramour in return.
