Position Breakdown: Doggie Style vs. Cat Position

Dog lovers and cat lovers have always been at odds. While doggie style has long reigned supreme, here comes CAT position, to knock it off its perch.

Doggie style for awhile.

Doggie style can get rough. It is perhaps the most animalistic of all sex positions. It is great for deep penetration and hitting the g-spot. The receiving partner kneels on all fours; the other person kneels or stands behind while they penetrate. Some people don’t like doggie style because it lacks the intimacy of other positions. You don’t get to constantly stare into your lover’s eyes. However, a lack of eye contact is not always a bad thing. If you feel the need to gaze lovingly at your partner as they pummel you from behind, look over your shoulder and give them a kiss or nibble their lip.

I need it right meow.

If you aren’t sure about doggie style, take a more feline approach with the Cat’s Meow. Start in doggie style position, then arch the back, lowering the upper body as much as is comfortable, like a cat stretching. The penetrating partner should slow down the rhythm and focus on slow, deep g-spot penetration.

This can be a great way to slow down and get in touch with your feline side. Doggie style can get too energetic and rough sometimes. There is no direct clitoral stimulation with either move, so you might want to include a vibrator or a helping hand.

CAT Position

Built-in clitoral stimulation in the missionary position is something only CAT can provide. Coital Alignment Technique (CAT) is not a selfish move, which makes it ironically very un-catlike. CAT position is the best missionary position for clitoral stimulation.

Start with a classic missionary position, and when you enter your partner, scoot up a few inches higher than usual. Your body should be flat up against theirs. They can wrap their legs around your body or ankles, locking you into lovemaking. Think pelvis-to-pelvis rather than in-and-out— the motion is an up-and-down, steady rocking with a focus on where her clitoris hits the base of the penis.

As much as you might want to dart your penis in-and-out as fast as you can, you have to accept that going in-and-out like a pogo stick does absolutely nothing for the clitoris. If you want to make your partner orgasm, and trust me you do, you have to find a way to stimulate the clitoris with your penis, which is why CAT Position is so awesome.

So even if you think Missionary is tame and boring compared to doggie style, you should probably give CAT position a chance. An orgasm might just sneak up on you. Oh wait, that’s just the cat.
