Kim Cattrall Says '50 Shades of Grey' is Doing Wonders for Women in Bed

Love + Sex

As far as I'm concerned, there's only one actress who is a given for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie: Kim Cattrall. Although we've always seen her as Samantha Jones (or if you're thinkin' further back, maybe Andrew McCarthy's Mannequin), she would make a PERFECT Elena Lincoln, the stunning blonde cougar-next-door who introduces a teenage Christian Grey to the world of BDSM. Kim denied being up for the role, but she did tell The Sun that she read the book and "thoroughly enjoyed" it! (Of course she did.)

Then, in that all-knowing, sex guru way she has, Kim went on to remark what a positive effect the series has had on women in her age group ...

Sounding a lot more open-minded than Khloe Kardashian, Kim noted:

It's fun -- whatever turns you on. All these women of a certain age are finally having fun and what's wrong with that? We're all adults.

Right on, Samantha Kim! As much as the trilogy has gotten women talking about topics usually considered taboo, it's also brought out a lot of cattiness, a lot of judgment. Particularly surrounding, like Kim says, "what turns you on." No one is saying E.L. James' writing is a gift to literature, but as far as a gift to some women's libido, it sure is.

The awesome truth is that women of all ages are reading it and realizing they should feel free to enjoy a certain kind of sex -- or sex in general! -- which maybe they thought was off the table for them at this point in their lives. They're opening up to their partners about what they want and how they want it. They're playing more and worrying less. And anything giving women the green light to have more fun in bed and enjoy a sexual renaissance should be given the credit it deserves by all women -- even if it's not your cup of tea.

Do you agree with Kim's take on Fifty Shades?
