As a sex writer in New York City, it's harder to avoid getting compared to Carrie Bradshaw than it is to find a place where you can still legally smoke indoors. This is especially annoying for two reasons.
First, unless you're a TV writer or the author of a New York Times best seller, there is no way to realistically budget for rent and a pair of Manolo Blahniks, let alone MULTIPLE pairs of Manolo Blahniks. And more importantly, for all the gems of wisdom the expertly accessorized foursome dished out during brunch, they also gave some pretty terrible advice about sex and dating -- even the professional sex writer herself.
So let's break out the vodka and whip up some cosmos; it's time to pour one out for each time the ladies got it oh-so-fabulously wrong. PS: this is already my new favorite drinking game.
"Men cheat for the same reason dogs lick their balls: because they can. It's part of their biology. Instead of wasting all this energy condemning it, maybe it's time we all got in line with the reality of the situation." -- Samantha
As the face of female sexual empowerment on a show, I would have expected more from Samantha. For shame. Also, let's stop comparing men to dogs… dogs are far more loyal. Kidding!
Anyway, even in the age of 4G dating and swiping right to fourth base, monogamy lives. And before we accept any biological arguments giving men a get-out-of-jail-free pass when it comes to infidelity, it might serve us to examine the patriarchal influence on the medical and scientific establishments themselves. Maybe we can blame this crappy advice on the fact that most of the series overlapped with the Clinton administration… and not Hillary's.
