While most people have heard that it’s tough for a woman to climax in this standard sexual position (and in fact research suggests that only 25 percent of women do), with a little maneuvering, the missionary can actually be amazing.
The secret? CAT. No, we’re not suggesting something off-color, but rather that you learn the “Coital Alignment Technique.” Instead of having your guy lie on top of you chest-to-chest with his penis moving more or less horizontally, have him shift forward so that his chest is closer to your shoulders. As a result, his penis moves more up and down. In other words, if he rides higher on your pelvis, the bony base of his penis will make more contact with your clitoris. This increases direct stimulation and may provide enough to push you to orgasm. In fact, a recent study in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy showed a 56 percent increase in female orgasm in the missionary position after only 21 days of practicing the technique. Now, who said missionary work wasn’t fun?
