Modified Coital Alignment Technique

Many couples dislike the coital alignment technique (or “CAT”, also known as Coital Adjusted Technique) because they find the up-down rocking rhythm awkward and counterintuitive.

The modified coital alignment technique provides a solution to this problem by adjusting the position slightly….

In this sexual position, a man penetrates a woman from top as in the traditional missionary position. When he is inside her, the woman brings her legs together between the man’s legs.

This will also tighten the vagina and provide strong sensations to the penis. With careful, correctly positioned in-out thrusting motions, the man’s pubic bone and lower penile shaft will press on the clitoris and surrounding area and provide the essential clitoral stimulation required for female orgasm.

In order to maximize contact and pressure on the clitoris, the man should also shift his body forward slightly before starting the thrusting motion.

Modified Alignment Technique

The main difference between the modified Coital Alignment Technique and the ordinary CAT position is the motion of the man after penetration.

And That Position Is What, Exactly?

Many people find the excitement of making love means sophisticated techniques like the coital alignment method are quite difficult to follow.

So that’s one of the reasons why the modified CAT was developed. It’s a variation of the CAT technique which allows for more normal, more conventional, in and out thrusting techniques by the man.

This may feel more natural, and perhaps even more satisfying for the man, while at the same time still providing woman was great pleasure.

The point of this technique, just like the CAT, is to stimulate the clitoris in a way that doesn’t occur during normal intercourse.

The man starts, as in all missionary position sex, by entering his partner, but when he’s entered her, he shifts his position upwards along her body, and she adjusts her legs as shown in the photograph below.


This tightens the vagina, providing strong stimulation to the man.

But the really important point is that in this position, it’s possible for the man to move in a more conventional thrusting motion, while at the same time bringing the shaft of his penis into contact with the clitoris and providing stimulation sufficient to bring his woman to orgasm.

When he’s entered her, he shifts his weight forward, by shifting his body upwards along her body. Then, once he’s established a rhythm, he needs to keep it going in such a way that her clitoris gets enough stimulation to build to a powerful orgasm.

Men! It’s easier to experience this than to describe it, so my recommendation is that you get into bed and start practising!

Move in different ways to experience the way in which your partner receives more clitoral stimulation.

And remember,  whatever technique you use during lovemaking, to achieve the end result of bringing the woman to orgasm, you will always need to find the right rhythm and movement of your bodies together – the movement that stimulates each of you in the best way.

While the ordinary CAT position prohibits an in-out thrusting motion, the modified CAT does not have this restriction. Therefore, it is more natural for many men who are used to in-out thrusting motions during sex.

Both the modified CAT and the ordinary CAT position are equally effective in stimulating the clitoris to accelerate female orgasm. It is best to try out both positions to explore your personal preference.

A better alternative is to use both by switching position during your sexual intercourse. You can start off with oral sex or fingering as a warm up, and then the ordinary CAT position and finish off with the modified coital alignment technique. Feel free to mix and match to your liking.
