Sarah Jessica Parker protective over sex life

Actress Sarah Jessica Parker doesn’t gossip about her sex life.

TV show Sex and the City made her a star, alongside Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon. The four women were famed for dishing the details on what goes on between the sheets, but in real life Sarah likes to keep these things to herself.

“I love the way women these days talk about sex in a humorous and unforced way,” she smiled to Germany’s Cosmopolitan magazine. “I have a feeling it could be down to those four ladies, who loved to sit around a table and discuss just that. But my own sex life, that’s mine and mine alone.”

Even though Sex and the City’s final episode aired in 2004, Sarah wants to keep changing the lives of women. She runs a successful shoe line and believes wearing certain items can do wonders for female confidence. While she’s doing her bit, she thinks advances still need to be made in the workplace.

“When it comes to what’s acceptable, women blindly follow rules,” she offered. “Rules they believe exist.”

Despite her determined attitude when it comes to women’s rights, Sarah doesn’t call herself a feminist. She believes the strong ladies that paved the way are the ones who deserve that title.

“I have the greatest respect for my mother’s generation and the women’s rights they fought for,” she explained. “We are utilising what they gave us. I also realise we still have a long way to go. But it’s not just about women anymore. Ethnic minorities, gay people, transgender people, they’re all fighting for their place in our community. We need a humanistic movement.”
