What's the Best Position for Sex?

Written by Paul Wolf

Move over "in and out." Let's "rock `n' roll."

Here's how the Coital Alignment Technique works. He lies on top, his head resting on the mattress next to hers. She wraps her legs around him, her feet resting on his calves.

Now, he rides up on her pelvis slightly, just enough so that the base of his erect penis pushes up against her clitoris.

In effect, his penis "bows over her public bone," Eichel says. The subtle, coordinated rocking movement can begin. Here's the most important part: As she pushes up on the top of his shaft, he resists with less force than she pushes. Now, on the way back down, as he pushes down against her clitoris, she resists with less force than he pushes.

The result is a series of "small collisions," rather than the standard friction of thrusting. But collisions is a strong word. The movement is subtle, coordinated, gentle, rhythmic, slow-building. Like everything in life, it takes practice.

This is more than a position; it's a coordinated movement, Eichel explains. "We are now talking about vibration, not friction. Less in and out and more rock `n' roll."

"The man is actually shallow when the woman is getting the most stimulation on the downward push," Eichel says.

The Coital Alignment Technique looks a lot like the missionary position, but looks can deceive. "Riding high," the Eichel way, is not the same as riding hard.

"Many couples have discovered this spontaneously," Eichel said.

She'll enjoy constant clitoral stimulation and vibration on the nerve-rich area (urethral meatus, by the lower edge of her pelvic bone) just below the G-spot.

He'll enjoy the massaging action on his penis shaft, which, Eichel says, stimulates the prostatic nerves, the counterpart to the G-spot.

Stimulating these deeper layers of nerves, he says, create a "warm, melting feeling" during intercourse, which deepens the experience for both.
