Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This book proves that Sex and the City temptress Kim Cattrall will travel to the ends of the earth to satisfy her quest for sexual knowledge. In this follow-up to her graphic Satisfaction, Cattrall and a few selected friends explore the world's most historic sexual hot spots, from the erotically lined streets of ancient Pompeii to Dorset, the home of the largest phallus on earth.
Helen Gurley Brown
"The text is so meaningful and wise. . . . anyone can glean enormous wisdom from these words and they are meaningful to all of us since we are sexual creatures."
Editor-in-Chief International Editions, Cosmopolitan
The Globe and Mail
"It's no coincidence that Cattrall repeatedly uses the word "fascinating" to describe the content of her new book, Sexual Intelligence."
Saturday, October 8, 2005
FQ
"insightful and ofttimes humorous . . . . uniquely satisfying."
Fall 2005
Publishers Weekly
In an attempt to give readers a greater understanding of the sources and inspirations of sex, Cattrall, aka the seductive Samantha Jones on Sex and the City, has wound up producing a weird mix of art book and sex manual, addressing the roots of desire, messaging, arousal, fantasy and "release." The text isn't written in the first person (in fact, there are references to "we"), and Cattrall's well-known sexiness isn't glaringly on display, with the exception of grainy images of her smirking as she holds an oyster, or dressed up as a dominatrix, floating in what appear to be Photoshopped clouds. Other pictures feel like stock photography (indeed, the credits at book's end confirm this): a photo of a zucchini next to a paragraph on nicknames for the penis; a sepia-toned shot of two feet crossed, with a daisy tucked between two toes, alongside a section on "lust and laughter." The same interview subjects (identified by first name and a head shot only) are quoted throughout; readers learn, for example, that Natasha doesn't like the way her vagina looks, nor is she attracted to "the metrosexual, hair-product type guy." Master works of art-a carving of a vulva found in a cave in France; Antonio Canova's marble sculpture of lovers embracing-are used to beautiful effect, but don't help the book rise from fluff to something of substance.
