Kim Cattrall felt compelled to write a book about intimacy to demystify sex for women - and urge them not to panic of their partners are struggling to arouse them.

The former Sex And The City actress, 48, teamed up with her then-husband MARK LEVINSON on SATISFACTION: The Art Of The Female Orgasm to inform others she didn't develop a strong sex drive until she reached her forties.

Cattrall says, "Up until then I thought I wasn't a very sexual woman, although everyone assumed I was getting it in spades.

"I wanted to write the book because something had changed for me.

"I thought, 'My goodness, if that's my story, there must be lots of other women.'"
