Sex and the City S3 Ep7-9: A Retro SSL Review

My newish little segment is back for a 6th round (Here's the others). It's a modified, lazy version of an SSL Review. It's just me transcribing my notes, page by page, on all of the Sex and the City episodes. I watched them all - not necessarily in order - during 2007 and 2008, and I took notes on the depiction/discussion of female orgasm and female masturbation. It was my early attempt at this type of lady-gasm review stuff. Anyway, I never actually created reviews from these notes, but since they exist, I'd like to get them out there on the interwebs before they get burned in a house fire or something...thus this series.

Ramona and my SATC Notes

Anyway, the fun of this will be that I will transcribe these as word for word as I can while still trying to make it be a sensible read. I'll post a pick of the notes for your reference. I'll do one or more episodes at a time - from the beginning of the notebook to the end. I may add notes for clarification.

Hopefully these won't make me look like a dumb asshole. I will add them in the TV SSL Review Master List  (of course you are also welcome to check out the Movie SSL Review Master List as well). Here we go.

SATC Notes S3 E7-9

Season 3 Ep 7
-Miranda had orgasm (it seemed) being fucked missionary lying motionless

-Sam met guy who took Viagra recreationally, then (there was a) scene of her fucking cowgirl style totally orgasmic. [made the impression that his Viagra made it exceedingly good for her].

-Miranda says sex with Steve is no frills but not exciting  - more like a race to have an orgasm.

-Sam is with a guy  + he takes Viagra - she says she must be in for a wild ride. Then she takes one  - she is riding cowgirl style + has craziest most awesome orgasm ever ever ever.

- Sam goes nuts when that guy suggests going without Viagra. She loves them.

Season 3 Ep 8
-1/2 a joint 3 thrusts + finito - Carrie on her first time.

-Samantha missionary - getting pounded on, looks completely bored. He's a pathetic old loser and she slept with him because she felt sorry for herself.

Season 3 Ep 9
-Samantha gives head and spunk tastes horrible

Modern Day Me Comments
First off, Viagra ruins everything (an aside).
This may not be a popular opinion, but dear sweet baby Jesus, this may have been the worst thing for women having sex with old men and drunks since the invention of garlic. I mean all that pounding! So much pounding has happened since that shit was invented. Don't get me wrong. I see the value of it for certain things. I mean, it does help men who were physically having problems with this get and maintain an erection. That's great for the men and sometimes their partners (when the Viagra taking men understand that women orgasm through outer clitoral stimulation and not from their dicks rubbing the inner vagina...and how many people actually understand that, honestly?...). What it does not do, however, is help with actual arousal. So there has to be some arousal from the man or Viagra doesn't work at all, but it's not gonna help get a man to orgasm/ejaculate or to get him to orgasm/ejaculate any faster

First the drunk. He's young and horny and using Viagra for fun because he's so wasted his body won't keep the erection. He ain't never gonna come though. NEVER. He's just gonna keep pounding until he passes out with his hard dick still inside you. It's a nightmare. Before this damn drug, you all would have tried to fuck, but since he couldn't get hard, he might have resorted to eating you out, but sadly, Viagra ruined that tiny miracle of drunk men trying to screw.

Then the old dudes and their poor old wives. You have an old dude who, because he's old and it's normal, doesn't reach orgasm as quickly or get aroused as quickly anymore. Yet, he took a pill and his junk's hard, and so since his junk's hard, he's just gonna keep on pounding and pounding and pounding. He's all excited because he hasn't had a dick this hard in a while, and so he's really trying to pound hard, but then he starts getting all hot and sweaty, and that don't help anyone reach orgasm, and what's left is some poor old woman getting pounded in her poor vagina that probably doesn't get as wet as it used to because she's old and that's also normal. Also, pounding by itself just straight up won't cause orgasm for women, so it's gonna get pretty boring for her anyway, and now he's dripping sweat from his forehead into her eyes, and the whole thing just sucks. That's the commercial they don't show.

I mean, the one joy of growing old for wives of intercourse obsessed men is that they don't have to endure so much pounding as the years go by. Maybe he gets a little less hard than he used to, so the intercourse gets less poundy and more grindy and maybe her poor oft-ignored clit will get a little stimulation against his pelvis during this new grindier intercourse. Maybe he'll take longer to get hard and thus spend more time on manual or oral stimulation. I mean, the beauty of dudes having a harder time getting or keeping erections (if they don't freak out and obsess over themselves) is that there is room for more creativity and focus on their partner's pleasure. This is the secret and underappreciated jewel of hetero couples getting older that Viagra has stolen. Damn shame.

Samantha and the Viagra
So, I just don't like the whole storyline about Samantha having WAY better sex with Viagra. In a healthy no-having-problems-getting-erections man Viagra just serves to keep a dude hard for a long time. He might stay hard between ejaculations or get hard really quick after one. So, it really just helps him fuck more, and that only makes sex super amazing for a woman if we are believing the incorrect yet really popular myth that women vaginally orgasm. There's no physical evidence for that anywhere in scientific literature. It's largely BS, and so is that storyline. In no way did him taking Viagra help her clit get stimulation, so how's it gonna help her orgasm? Her taking Viagra being hot...well, there is placebo effect, which is a kind of real effect. There also might maybe be some evidence that it helps blood flow for some women, but maybe not. Anyway, if she likes it fine, but I don't like the insinuation that a woman taking Viagra will somehow make her orgasm like crazy, because that is absolutely incorrect.

All the Other Stuff
1. Miranda orgasms during intercourse with no additional clitoral stimulation, and she's just lying there still. She's not even trying to grind her clit against his pelvis for stimulation. Bull. Shit. That's some porn inspired nonsense depictions of women coming from nothing but a dick in their hole. Sadly, it's also a super common and seemingly normal way to depict a woman orgasming.

2. Later, Samantha does not come while doing the exact same thing Miranda was doing. Why? Because she doesn't like the guy or the situation, and there is a bad habit in TV and movies of depicting the orgasmic possibilities of intercourse for women based on whether the guy is right or not. Granted, it's 100% true that your state of mind affects your arousal which affects you ability to come, but intercourse by itself without additional clitoral stimulation doesn't cause orgasm in women at all. So, showing that it does when the guy is right is 1. not physically accurate and 2. only reiterates the stupid and wrong stereotype that female orgasm is soooo much more related to emotion than male orgasm. So, puke on that.

3. Neither the bad spunk thing nor the story about Carrie's first time are actually SSL Reviewable because they aren't about lady-gasm, lady-bation, or clits. I was still dialing in exactly how these SSL Reviews would be handled.

4. Clearly, I'm learning the character's names by this point. I didn't call them by their hair color or main personality characteristic.
