After realizing her relationship with Mr. Big is one-sided, Carrie dumps him; Miranda dates a strict Catholic; Samantha falls in love with a perfect man; Charolette goes to a psychic to see if she'll ever marry.
Carrie has been dating Mr. Big long enough for it to become less physical; Charlotte is dating a man who's not interested in sex; Samantha discovers that not having sex is erotic; Miranda realizes it's been months for her.
Charlotte is trying to decide whether to have anal sex with a man she's dating. Miranda: It all depends on how much you like him? Charlotte: A lot. Miranda: "Dating a few months until somebody better comes along a lot", or "marrying him and moving to the East Hampton's" a lot? Charlottte: I don't know, I'm not sure. Miranda: Well, you better get sure real quick. Charlotte: You're scaring me. Carrie: Don't scare her. Miranda: It's all about control. If he goes up there, there's gonna be a shift in power, either he'll have the upper hand or you will. Now there's a certain camp that believe whoever holds the dick, holds the power. (Cab Driver turns around) Hello, you're driving! The question is, if he goes up your butt, will he respect you more or respect you less? That's the issue. Cab Driver: No smoking in cab. Carrie: Sir, were talking "up the butt", a cigarette is in order. (Cuts to Samantha now in the cab) Samantha: Front. Back. Who cares? A hole is a hole. Miranda: Can I quote you? Samantha: Don't be so judgmental. You could use a little back door. Charlotte: I'm not a hole. Carrie: Honey, we know. Samantha: Look, all I'm saying is this is a physical expression, that the body, well, it was designed to experience. And p.s., it's fabulous.
(Talking about oral sex) Charlotte: The truth is, I hate doing it. Samantha: Honey, you can't be serious! Miranda: Are you telling us you never perform this act? Carrie: She'll juggle, she'll spin plates, but she won't give head. Charlotte: I don't like putting it in my mouth! I have a very sensitive gag reflex and it makes me want to puke! Miranda: That's one way to say no. Charlotte: It's not like I haven't tried. I practiced on a banana, I pretended it was a Popsicle, but...I just don't like it. Miranda: Personally, I'm loving it, up to the point where the guy wants me to swallow. Carrie: Well that's just, that's really a judgment call. Samantha: Some men take it so personally if you don't. Miranda: Some guys don't give you a choice! Carrie: Well that's just bad behavior. Charlotte: Are you honestly telling me you like it? Carrie: Well, it's not my favorite thing on the menu, but you know, I'll order it from time to time, and, with the right guy, it can be nice. Miranda: Oral sex is like God's gift to women. You can get off without worrying about getting pregnant. Samantha: Plus the sense of power is such a turn-on, maybe you're on your knees, but you got him by the balls. Charlotte: You see, that is the reason that I don't want to go down this road. Carrie: Well sweetheart, if you're gonna get all choked up about it (Carrie and Miranda exchange looks about the pun), just don't do it, don't do it! Miranda: But if you don't go down on him, how can you expect him to go down on you? Charlotte: I don't. Miranda: Oh well, forget it! I only give head to get head! Samantha: Me too.
