Mr. Big's Friend (as Philip Coccioletti)


Carrie put asides her misgivings about a photo session for a promotional picture for her columns, to go on buses, because she was allowed to keep the sexy dress, which she wears on her first 'official' dinner date with Big, and has sex against Charlotte's Victorian restraint rules. Her friend Mike Singer found an ideal sex-partner in sales clerk Libby Biyalick, but prefers to keep the affair discrete as she wouldn't do as life-partner; Carrie realizes and resents being Big's, till she confronts him. Miranda meets 32-year old sports doctor Ted Baker by punching him in gym class, they become fine sex partners, but when he learns she found in his flat his secret passion, spanking videos, which the other girls regard quite differently, he walks out for good. Charlotte recalls her Chassidic ex-lover Shmuel, an artist. Written by KGF Vissers

This Episode Makes Men Look Bad, and Women Necrotic
1 July 2013 | by (Washington, USA) – See all my reviews

When watching this episode I could feel the male influence that had just joined the series. The idea that there are women in the world that men have sex with and don't want others to know about is upsetting. The episode made it sound like every man in the world had one and that it was a normal thing.

The way that Carrie reacted to the situation, just assuming that she was the secret set of Mr. Big was stupid. She freaked out about nothing and showed up drunk? I would have dumped her on the stop if I were him.

All things considered I felt the episode was poorly written, and the relationships mentions in it where very stereotyped.
