Sex and the City
July 1 Episode
"Baby Talk is Cheap"
episode, starting out on a high (or make that hard) note as the girls
try out the newest fad in NYC, fake erect nipples. To quote Samantha,
"Nipples are in." Miranda pops them on at a party as an experiment and
they all watch the guys go ga-ga.
you wear fake nipples?
Miranda finds a
cute male running buddy who is into "tukos-lingus," or butt-licking.
Not sure if she likes it or not, she suspects she's behind in the sex
scene, so to speak. Watching Miranda's expressions during her rendevous
is hysterical, especially as her buddy sticks his butt into her face
during a massage. Miranda's dilemma leads to some interesting discussions
about how sex trends start and spread, since ass definitely seems to
be in, specifically "localized butt," as she defines it. One last interesting
bit that gets tossed in, but is not dwelled upon: Steve kisses Miranda
after an informal "friends foursome" with Carrie, Aiden, Steve, and
Miranda (Carrie's clever plan to be able to see Aiden with Miranda as
her "airbag.)" Will more Steve action spring from this?
After trying out
the fake nipples, Sam finds they attract a different sort of guy, namely
one who likes baby talk in bed. It's interesting that Sam can talk down
and dirty with the best of them, but "titty-witties" turns her off faster
than another bath with Maria. Perhaps we are seeing an evolution of
Samantha, or a maturation. It's looking like gratuitous, relationship-free
sex is getting more and more difficult to find these days. She was never
this picky before.
Woohoo! After much
flip flopping, Aiden and Carrie get back together, against Aiden's better
judgement. She broke his heart, but how can he resist our Carrie when
she tells him she still loves him? Outstanding chick-flick material
as they make passionate love and fulfill the audience's desire for true
love and a happy ending. But this is the City. You know she's going
to mess it up again, you just don't know how or when. John Corbett's
Aiden has got to be the most lovable, sweetest guy on TV. However, as
we all know, the nice guys always get screwed over by women, it's a
law of physics.
Trey and Charlotte
decide to try for a baby, since they are getting along so well now.
It's amazing what a little redecorating can do for a relationship. When
they invite married friends with kids over for dinner, a reality check
sets in as they witness the havoc that kids can wreak on a marriage,
but they overcome it by the end of the show. Lots of indications that
Char will get prego in the next episode or so, and it will be interesting
to see what monkey wrenches this throws into her relationship with the
other three. An interesting insight about Charlotte: we learn she's
OK with tukos-lingus. This surprising bit of info amazes her friends
and fans, considering she had great angst several seasons ago about
becoming an "up-the-butt" girl.
Lots of clingy,
low cut dresses that are just made for flaunting those faux nips. The
gowns also provide easy access to toss the tips before your partner
finds out your little secret, as Samantha demonstrates in a textbook
faux-nip seduction scene.
week they all get their panties in a bunch.
again, the Vo-Man takes a look at the artform of his people.
we all love closeups of Macintosh screens.
