Definition - What does Coital Alignment Technique (CAT) mean?

The Coital Alignment Technique (CAT) is a variation of the missionary position that's designed to stimulate a woman's clitoris, making it much easier for her to climax during intercourse. To use this technique, a couple must first get into the missionary position. The man can then slide up so that his penis is pointing slightly downward. This will cause the top of the base of his penis to press against the woman's clitoris.

Kinkly explains Coital Alignment Technique (CAT)

Traditional thrusting motions aren't usually the best way to have sex while in this position. It can be uncomfortable for both the woman and the man, and may not even be possible. Instead, the couple should rock their hips together. The man can also gently push his penis downward as the woman gently thrusts her hips upward.
