The Coital Alignment Technique (C.A.T. ), by Edward Eichel
C.A.T.is based on the discovery of coital alignment — a fundamental sexual position and a coordinated form of sexual movement that facilitate orgasm the natural way. Real time footage demonstrates how “the new intercourse” makes it possible for a woman to climax during sexual intercourse, and frequently leads to simultaneous orgasm — the natural potential of the sex act.
"...The function of the sex act is to stabilize the human psyche ...tender and affectionate feelings and the sensual feelings have to unite!" — Sigmund Freud
The coital alignment research was motivated by Sigmund Freud's vision that the sex act requires "a specific and adequate activity" that leads to a complete orgasm release for man and woman. In the original study on coital alignment, women consistently attained the "no hands" orgasm — Freud's "vaginal orgasm."
Part 1 of the DVD is a comprehensive instruction in the coital alignment technique by the principal researcher, Edward W. Eichel.
Part 2 illustrates the anatomy of sexual response demonstrating how the CAT provides effective stimulation to facilitate female orgasm.
Part 3 provides an historic overview of sex research that shows how pioneers of sexology often recognized features of coital alignment.
Edward Eichel’s ground-breaking research on sexual compatibility – the Coital Alignment Technique (CAT) – has been published in Medical Sexology: The Third International Congress (of the World Association for Sexology, 1980), Elements of Sex Counseling & Therapy (A. Peluso, Piovan Editore, Italy); The Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy, (Summer 1988), Medical Tribune (German edition, January 27, 1989), The Perfect Fit, (Penguin USA, 1993). The Perfect Fit was translated and published in Spain. “The Coital Alignment Technique (CAT): An overview of Studies” (Aaron P. Pierce, 2000) was published in The Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy. "Orgasm Defined by the C.A.T. Research" in Sexuality in the New Millennium: Proceedings of the 14th World Congress of Sexology, Hong Kong, 1999" (Edited by Ng EML et al., 2000, Editrici Compositori).
The Challenge of C.A.T.: Philosopher-psychologists like C.G.Jung have cautioned, "All steps forward in the improvement of the human psyche have been paid for by blood." The discovery of CAT may herald an evolutionary step, but, happily, it is unlikely to cause a civil war involving cannons and submarines (the guys thing). It is remarkable that the sex act has been quite volatile in Judeo-Christian history. Based on his personal disappointment with intercourse, Augustine of Hippo advocated that the human race was eternally damned because of the sin of Adam and Eve. Julian of Eclanum challenged Augustine's pessimistic view of intercourse on the basis of his own marital experience. Julian stated that it was blasphemy to doubt that God's design for the mating of the male and female bodies could be fatally flawed or ill-intended. Ever the romantic, Julian claimed the sex act is a God-given communion involving a "sixth sense." Following his death Augustine was sainted, and Julian was declared a heretic. Unfortunately, sex, pleasure, and sin became synonymously linked. But, women should not take Augustine's hysteria about sex personally. More recently, in his Theology of the Body, Pope John Paul II touted the melding of male-female polarity into "ONE FLESH" as a God-given wonder.
It is apparent that the sex act has been enigmatic to philosophers, scientists, and clergymen throughout time. So, in answer to the question, How long does it take to learn the CAT?: In accord with medical historians, four thousand years -- and a few months. It takes faith, and little bit of practice.
