Sex and the City taught me a lot about love, life, and friendship. From how to handle your friends getting married (also: why do my friends keep getting married?) to how to deal when the love of your life starts dating someone else, Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda have gotten me through everything.
Sex and the City also taught me everything I need to know about sex.
Blow jobs are WORK and they don’t call it a job for nothing.
“Easy? You men have no idea what we’re dealing with. Teeth placement and jaw stress and suction and gag reflex. All that while bobbing up and down, moaning, and trying to breathe through our noses. Easy? Honey, they don’t call it a job for nothing.” - Samantha Jones
Seriously. Guys act like it’s all fun and games as long as they’re getting head, but when was the last time that they had to juggle all of those things while still looking like a porn star?
You should ALWAYS make it your priority to get off.
“I’ll admit I have had to polish myself off once or twice, but yes, when I RSVP to a party, I make it my business to come.” - Samantha Jones
The orgasm gap is real, ladies! It’s about time that we demand equal treatment in the bedroom as well as the boardroom. When you show up for sex, you should make it a guarantee that you get off too, even if that means you get off first.
Men are often baffled by the female anatomy, regardless of how long they’ve been having sex.
“What’s the big mystery? It’s my clitoris, not the sphynx.” - Miranda Hobbes
It doesn’t matter if you’re eighteen or twenty-eight, there are going to be men who has zero clue what to do with a clitoris. They’re still in the mindset that women get off because they’re dicks are magic. Teach them. Don’t let them get away with not knowing how to satisfy a woman.
If he’s too good looking, he probably doesn’t know what to do in bed...but you shouldn’t let that slide.
“Men who are too good looking are never good in bed because they never had to be.” - Carrie Bradshaw
When you’re really, really ridiculously good looking, people will sleep with you regardless of your bedroom skill set. But newsflash: You don’t have to let him get away being a shitty lover! Tell him exactly what you need to get off.
Sometimes you should fuck someone that you can’t don’t really like, but are super attracted to.
“Ugly sex is hot. Some of the best sex I’ve ever had is with people I can’t stand.” - Anthony Merentino
It sounds crazy, but is there anything hotter than taking all of that pent up aggression and throwing it into a night of passion?
Don’t let anyone slut-shame you.
“I will not be judged by you or society. I will wear whatever and blow whomever I want as long as I can breathe and kneel.” - Samantha Jones
It’s the 21st century and no one should be slut-shamed for engaging in fun sex - whether it’s with a long time partner or just casually with guys you met in a bar. If people try, call them out on their shitty attitude and speak your truth with some words from Samantha Jones.
It might be twenty years old at this point, but Sex and the City has all the wisdom you need about sexuality to get through life.
