Sex and the City
June 17 Episode
"What’s Sex Got
to Do with It"
A five star
episode, filled with everything we love about this show. Recommend
watching the replays to see it again later this week.
This episode compresses
the last year of Charlotte and Trey’s entire relationship into the state
of his penis. When he asks her to measure it, she’s just not going to
stand for it, alrighty. It’s a clever bit of writing that mirrors how
people often worry about what their lover will think, but Sex
flips it around: Does it like me? Only John Thomas knows for sure. Char
throws a tantrum in the shower and marches out full of soap suds to
tell Trey that it’s over. She’s sick of his penis running her life and
they either act like man and wife and live together or get divorced
and finish it off. A nice clean take down. Trey comes around the next
day and asks her to remarry him, living together and everything. We’ll
see how long this lasts, since Trey is just full of surprises. John
Miranda goes on
a sex strike (since she’s not getting any anyway) and substitutes chocolate
for nookie. Her sudden obsession with eclairs, cakes, etc. doesn’t ring
too true, since she has never revealed any food obsessions prior to
this episode, but it was still amusing. Her mantra "No More Bad
Dates" is a good one.
Sam learns that
sex with women is very different than sex with men, when she attempts
to go down on Maria with abandon. Maria tries to teach her the difference
between sex and making love. The heavy message is lightened considerably
as we follow Samantha’s journey through first discovery that she’s not
the best lay in town in this arena through an anatomy lesson with Maria.
Funniest moment in the show: Maria comes forcefully and has a female
ejaculation in Sam’s face, to which Sam inquires, "Is that good?"
Inspired writing here, although where these people come with these story
lines is a mystery.
Have you ever witnessed
female ejaculation first hand?

Lots of skin with
Ray and lots of mindblowing sex for Carrie. Oops, she forgot to have
a relationship, though. In fact, she can’t even hold a conversation
with him, he’s so all over the place. She realizes he has ADD, but enjoys
the sex while it lasts. The question to ponder: can you have long term
sex without a relationship? Probably a no for Carrie, but we may see
Ray again, perhaps for a booty call. Ray is a great character, sort
of a human jazz scat.
Carrie’s black underwear
steal the show.
– hint: Steve’s back. June
again, the Vo-Man takes a look at the artform of his people.
we all love closeups of Macintosh screens.
