This is not to say that he is confrontational, quite the opposite really. In the sign of trouble, the crabby crab will quickly retreat into his shell before anything.
The hard shell serves as his protection to his big, sensitive heart. The Cancer moon man might take a while to open up, or he may be closed off altogether, unlike the Venus in Cancer man.

The Cancer man with this placement is romantic. He is a classic guy, and his bedroom mannerism very much reflects that.
He is not one to stray too far into kinks and fetishes, but he does enjoy the flare, and to spice things up occasionally to keep his lover happy, just as long as it stays between you and him.
He is a gentle guy, so it is not likely he will be into dominating his partner or participating in anything too rough. The Cancer moon man loves tons of foreplay and prefers to take it slow.
This is because sexual intimacy, to him, is an emotional bonding experience, and not purely physical activity.
He is not one for sleeping around frivolously, but he prefers one committed partner with whom he can explore and truly make love within the bedroom.
