How to do it: Start in the missionary position where the wife lies down, the husband then moves upwards along his wife. This is to allow both of your pelvises to align. In this position, the man can put direct pressure on his wife’s clitoris.
This was discovered to be one of the best sex positions for women when it was discovered by Dr. Willibrord Weijmar Schultz along with his colleagues.
They realized during an MRI scan of a couple having sex that this position offered the highest potential to bring a woman to orgasm because of its ability to stimulate the clitoris and the G-spot.
Other studies have also discovered that the CAT is beneficial for men too. Especially for men who are not well-endowed or for men who have problems with their premature ejaculation.
The position allows them to hold off because, in this position, men don’t experience the same intensive sexual sensation that happens with deep and fast thrusting. You can also check out the video for more instructions:
