Kim Cattrall was born in Liverpool and raised on Vancouver Island, Canada. At sixteen she moved to New York City and has been acting professionally ever since. A two-time Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated actress, she has received worldwide acclaim for her role as Samantha in the hit series Sex and the City. Mark Levinson, a professional jazz musician who has played with many jazz greats, is the founder and CEO of Red Rose Music. Kim and Mark are married and live in New York State.
"Some people... assume that for me to play a sexually open character, like Samantha Jones on HBO's Sex and the City, I must have had fabulous sex most of my life. Well, the truth is that until three years ago most of my sexual experiences were miserable," confesses Kim Cattrall, in Satisfaction: The Art of the Female Orgasm, a slim yet pensive guide to pleasing women in bed. Simple sketches accompany the dry text (written by Cattrall and her husband, Mark Levinson), explaining different techniques men and women can use. This book is decidedly unflashy and its approach is not at all brashly sexual (like Cattrall's TV character). Rather, it is a thoughtful manual on women's orgasms.
