“What this Water sign wants more than anything is to receive that same level of dedication, attention, and pampering in return.”
It’ll take a lot more than heated glances and sweet-talking to get a Cancer into bed. But once you do, you’ll be treated to a sexual experience that’s unlike any other. As the crab of the zodiac sign, Cancers are tough on the outside but soft and jdate review tender on the inside. And since Cancer is one of the sensitive signs in the zodiac, sex is sure to be an emotional experience. Cancers use sex as a way to bond with their partner on a deeper level, and the three zodiac signs most sexually compatible with Cancer have the best chance at seeing how transformative sex can really be.
“Sensitive, emotional Cancer is all about the feels when it comes to sex, and you should have already built up some emotional connection with them,” intuitive astrologer Chelsea Jewel tells Bustle. “The crab is known within the zodiac for being the nurturing caretaker who puts others’ needs before their own. But what this Water sign wants more than anything is to receive that same level of dedication, attention, and pampering in return.”
According to Jewel, Cancers are most turned on by displays of affection. Cancers want to be shown how much they’re loved and appreciated, whether their partner is whispering sweet nothings into their ear or cooking them their favorite meal. “Ultimately, tuning into a Cancer’s emotions and providing exactly what they need without them having to ask is the best way to leave them feeling satisfied and smitten,” Jewel says.
Not every zodiac sign can appreciate how giving Cancer can be, but according to astrologers, these three signs are destined to be Cancer’s sexual soulmates.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
No one does a better job of taking care of Cancer than another Cancer. When two crabs meet, you can pretty much expect a total love-fest filled with romantic gestures and sweet moments. For them, quality time, acts of service, and words of affirmation are all part of their love language. Once there’s trust, they’ll be in sync.
As astrologer Mitzye Ramos Ribas previously told Bustle, two Cancers work really well together in bed because they understand each other’s need to have an emotional connection before getting physical.
“In bed, the emotional connection between these two may at times outweigh the physical act of sex, with lots of eye gazing, cuddling, words of affirmation, and exchanges centering around their dreams for the future,” Jewel says.
As long as both partners can find effective ways to deal with each other’s moods, this sexual relationship can lead to a partnership full of “steamy, yet heartwarming evenings.”
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Expect a lot of depth and connection when these two water signs get it on. Both signs are highly intuitive and can instinctively know what touch, word, or gesture is going to get their partner off.
As astrologer Constance Stellas previously told Bustle, Cancer and Scorpio zodiac signs will find themselves magnetically drawn towards each other. “Scorpio can be more sexually adventurous than Cancerians, but after some time, both signs will settle into a warm, passionate, give and take.”
Both Cancer and Scorpio zodiac signs also tend to put up walls initially. According to Jewel, Scorpio will bring a “burning intensity” to the bedroom to reassure Cancer of their deeper connection, allowing Cancer to come out of their shell fully. “When these two have sex, they fully embody what it means to merge and meld together – not just physically, but on an incredibly deep and spiritual level as well,” Jewel says.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn and Cancer are opposite signs on the zodiac wheel, which means there’s already a natural draw to each other. Sexually, these two make an amazing pair, but it will take some time to get there. As astrologer Theresa Reed previously told Bustle, “Capricorn has a hard time relaxing, but the crab knows how to get them to chill out with luxe meals, sensuous back rubs, and plenty of PDA. Once Capricorn lets their guard down, these two have no problem merging. Cancer will help Capricorn get in touch with their sexual side.”
With these two, taking things slow and steady will be beneficial in the end. According to Jewel, sex between this couple often plays out as a “perfectly orchestrated tango,” with Capricorn initiating and Cancer fully receiving and reciprocating.
“Often known as the mother and father archetypes in astrology, Cancer and Capricorn may prefer to keep things traditional in the bedroom for quite a while, but it works for them,” Jewel says. “They’re not after a completely fiery passionate love affair that might risk burning out quickly. Instead, these two are often karmic soulmates who are in it for the long haul.”
When Cancer and Capricorn get together, they can reach new intimacy levels and form a deep bond of companionship that will make them feel secure. In addition to being one of Cancer’s most sexually compatible signs, Capricorn could also be the partner that sticks around long-term.
