'Fulfilled' Cattrall Pens Sex Book
She's taken sex out of the city and put it on the page. Actress Kim Cattrall, the alter ego of "Sex and the City" sex kitten Samantha Jones, has written a new how-to manual, unabashedly titled "Satisfaction: The Art of the Female Orgasm." It's $24.95. It's illustrated. And it comes shrink-wrapped. (It's also published by Warner Books, which, like PEOPLE, is part of AOL Time Warner.) "I come from a history of women not knowing themselves, not being fulfilled sexually, like my mother," Cattrall, 46, told USA Today. "I wanted to be part of breaking that cycle. I wanted to reach out to women and say, 'No one would think that because of the roles I've played, I would have a history like that, but I had it and I don't have it anymore and there's a solution.' " Cattrall had help writing the tome: her third and current husband, audio-equipment executive Mark Levinson. Among their suggestions for achieving happiness between the sheets, according to the book, are enthusiasm, experimentation, communication and Viagra. Still, Cattrall advises, readers should not confuse her effort as an author with her role on the hit HBO series. "I am not Samantha," she says. "Being so closely connected with a character for five years is wonderful and gratifying, but it's not me or who I am. Unlike her, I am sexually fulfilled."
