The Science of Compatibility
by Paul Wolf
Sex researcher Edward Eichel says intercourse should be great. Anytime. Any place. Any circumstances.
Recently, when adventurous couples slipped into an MRI cylinder to help produce first-ever images of their genitals at work, the experiment was called a breakthrough for science. But Eichel can't shake off a nagging question: Did they enjoy themselves?
They didn't report their all-time greatest experiences, but they could have — even in a place where you could barely move.
The world's leading promoter of the Coital Alignment Technique (who wasn't involved in the Dutch MRI study), told myprimetime.com that experiment indeed may have contributed to the field of anatomy. But it also backed up his life's work — namely, demonstrating that missionary-position sex as most people practice it, falls woefully short.
The striking MRI picture that the researchers were so proud of revealed no contact between the penis and the clitoris, and no blood-gorged swelling in the area of the G-spot (behind the pubic bone), Eichel points out.
"I was interested that the report said the women who had orgasms described them as superficial," says the 66-year-old Eichel, who's been researching his CAT technique for the better part of three decades.
Called, hyperbolically perhaps, the "greatest sexual position in the world," the "new and improved missionary position," and the "new intercourse," the technique replaces deep thrusting with a subtle and closely coordinated rocking.
Eichel's studies have found that about three-quarters of women are able to have no-hands orgasms with the CAT technique, which compares to the well-accepted average of 30 percent.
Forget cold metal. Forget holding still for the camera. Forget self-consciousness around clipboards and white coats. Once you've got the CAT in the bag, you should be able to think of little else.
