Oh, and women have been having casual sex loooong before Sex and the City even existed.

And this is from someone who has never been able to sit through an entire episode of SATC without her eyes rolling to the back of her head and reaching for the remote.
My sentiments exactly.

I have tried to understand the appeal of Sex and the City (I think I have seen every episode), but I just don't relate in any way to any of the characters.

I love it for that very reason - the existence of those 4 women is so far removed from the reality of my life that its an escape into a lovely little fantasy world!

The only thing that bears a teensy weensy resemblance to my little life is the depth of friendship between the four women - honest, supportive and accepting of flaws - a beautiful thing to aspire to in this crazy ole frenetic life

Interesting, because I dislike it for that very same reason. Being surrounded by women like that is mostly vomit-inducing on a daily basis.

And believe it or not, this was the point of the entire series. Not sex and shoes and Cosmopolitans. It's about friendship.

I know. I'm pretty sure I'm part of the demographic the creators of the show had in mind since I'm a single woman, but I'm almost insulted that I'm supposed to relate to such shallow, materialistic characters. And besides, Carrie was a lousy writer judging from the voiceovers she did while typing on her laptop.

^I found the show itself quite well-written though.
