The Sexual Life of Catherine M. (Kobo eBook)

The Sexual Life of Catherine M. By Catherine Millet Cover Image
Available Now


This New York Times–bestselling memoir of one woman’s erotic escapades is “brilliantly literate, utterly unabashed [and] consistently provocative” (The Philadelphia Inquirer).

Since it was first published in France, The Sexual Life of Catherine M. has become a global literary phenomenon, hailed as one of the most important books on sexuality to be published in decades.

Catherine Millet, the eminent editor of Art Press, has always led a free and active sexual life—from alfresco encounters in Italy to a gang bang on the edge of the Bois du Boulogne to a high-class orgy at a chichi Parisian restaurant. She has taken pleasure in the indistinct darkness of a peep show booth and under the probing light of a movie camera at an orgy. And in The Sexual Life of Catherine M., she recounts it all, from tender interludes with a lover to situations where her partners were so numerous and simultaneous they became indistinguishable parts of a collective body.

A graphic account of physical gratification and a relentlessly honest look at the consequences—both good and bad—of sex stripped of sentiment, The Sexual Life of Catherine M. is “truly a masterpiece of sexual exploration [that] will be a classic” (The Hartford Courant).
