  • Episode Description
  • Carrie meets a man and they go out for coffee. She gives him her phone number and when he doesn't call she wonders what she might of done to turn him off. She later runs into him in the street and he tells her the reason he didn't call is because he's an alcoholic and his AA sponsor told him that he shouldn't start any new relationships for at least a year. He throws caution to the wind and embarks on a relationship with Carrie. Soon enough though he becomes addicted to her instead of alcohol so she has to cut him off, which leads him to alcohol addiction once again. Charlotte thinks she's bad in bed when a guy falls asleep while making love to her so she enrolls herself in a tantric sex workshop and signs Carrie, Samantha and Miranda up as well. They go to the workshop and they all learn how to please their partner without actually having sex and Miranda accidentally gets hit by flying ejaculate. Samantha agrees to have sex with a gay couple she knows but when the couple can't go through with it she thinks there's something wrong with her.moreless

    • Charlotte: I'm mature enough to realize that while I may be good at some things like accessories, that I might need help in others, like... Carrie: Well just don't drink any suspicious Kool-Aid or put on new Nikes. Charlotte: It's not like that, it's taught by this very well-respected woman psychologist and it's called "How to Please a Man." Seating was limited so I signed you guys up. Please, please, I can't go alone, and if Bram ever falls asleep on me again I will die! Please, pretty please, pretty please with sugar on it?

    • Carrie: He wants to have sex all the time. It's getting a little out of hand. Samantha: At least, he wants to fuck you. Carrie: They were gay? Samantha: So? One minute they were interested and then suddenly they weren't. What did I do to turn them off? Miranda: Not having a dick, would be the thing you did to turn them off.

    • Samantha: How to please a man? I could teach the damn class.

    • Charlotte: I'm mature to realize that while I maybe good at some things like accessories, I might need help in others, like... Samantha: Fucking? Charlotte: Making love. So, I'm taking a class. Samantha: A fucking class? Charlotte: No! A tantric sex workshop. It's called "How to Please a Man." Miranda: I know how to please a man, just give him all your power.

    • Carrie: (thinks) I accepted his kind invitation because when you think about it, aren't we all in recovery from something? Drinking, drugging, our last relationship?
