I got thinking about safe sex. Odd how only when our physical life is at risk. Do we follow certain guidelines to protect ourselves? What about our emotional lives?
SEASON THREE – EPISODE ELEVEN; “Running With Scissors”: Carrie is still going on with her secret affair with Big, but it’s not as exciting as it was before, no more. The problem of whether or not telling about them to Natasha is wieghing on Big, and Carrie is afraid. Will it be a safe step to take? Of course not! And is it safe for Samantha to test her sexual health (just to have sex with a new man)? And for Miranda to have a crush on a Sandwich Man?
She can’t go on like this, so she goes to Miranda, who didn’t know anything, for advice. “What about Aidan? What about him? I would die if he found out. Big’s acting jealous. I’m so afraid he’ll call him or do something stupid.” Now it’s only Charlotte, the-world-according-to-bride, who doesn’t know about them. Now yet though…
After a japanese business man mistakes her for a prostitute, Carrie storms out of the hotel on 56th and 8th (“nobody knows us on 56th and 8th.”) and bumps into Charlotte, who understands what’s going on…
Despite her soon to be married friend, who tries to put her in Natasha shoes, Carrie keeps doing her usual things with Big, but this time… in his HOUSE! Obviously Natasha would come home earlier than expected and would catch her sneaking out. However, it is not that obvious that she would fall on the stairs and break her lip and tooth. Carrie escorts her to the hospital and, there, she tells Big that there’s no point for their relationship to go on as it is.
As for our other ladies, Miranda is having troubles with a Sandwich Man, who harasses her on the street… the problem ends when she sees his meaty lips and white teeth and gets curious about who’s underneath the suit.
Samantha is having a new problem, brought to her by her active (yet safe) sex life. When she is asked to do a HIV test, she freaks out, but it’s nothing to worry about… she is safe and sound.
FASHION BONUS: Our girl Charlotte is looking for the perfect wedding gown, and, for a help, she finds Anthony. They are both at a wedding dress shop when we see Charlotte’s wonderful grey dress, tied on the back of her neck, accessorised by a black leather purse and embellished by a classy hairstyle, half up half down.
