Does the CAT technique enhance female orgasm?

J Sex Marital Ther. Winter 1992;18(4):285-91. doi: 10.1080/00926239208412853.


The following is a report of The Human Sexuality Program of the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center to personally replicate Edward W. Eichel's claims that his Coital Alignment Technique (CAT) enhances and increases female coital orgasms and mutual orgasms. We failed to replicate these claims. However, it was the consensus of the group that within the context of sex therapy, the CAT technique may have merit in certain clinical situations, and as such deserves to be further evaluated.
