The actress explained that she is on the search for 'Mr Right' but is finding it very "difficult".
While discussing her quest to meet a new guy, Cattrall said on the Ellen DeGeneres Show: "It's very difficult," to which DeGeneres replied: "I would think that it would be difficult, that men would be intimidated."
The 54-year-old responded: "A little bit. Yeah. Writing a book about the female orgasm didn't help my dating career either! Men like to think that they know it all, especially in that department."
Cattrall was referring to the tome Satisfaction: The Art of the Female Orgasm, which she and her now ex-husband Mark Levinson co-wrote in 2002.
Her latest role in Meet Monica Velour sees her play an ageing porn star who turns to stripping to make money, and then starts a relationship with a 17-year-old fan.
She said of the film: "It's about this woman in her 50s who meets this young man who's 17 and they have a relationship of sorts. It's very sweet and very dear."
Cattrall recently blasted a female reporter for asking a "stupid" question.
