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

Carrie And Mr. Big's First Official Date
2 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Carrie has a photo session for a bus side poster to promote her weekly column. She has her first official date with Mr. Big and worries that she has ruined the relationship before it has started by sleeping with him so early on. She researches people who have relationships in secret. Miranda discovers her boyfriend's fetish. When Mr. Big doesn't show up to see the maiden voyage of her promotional poster on the side of a bus, Carrie suspects she is only his secret lover, and confronts him.

Not everyone we meet in our lives is someone we want to introduce to our friends, let alone if we're having sex with them. Some people will perhaps embarrass us in front of our friends, so we prefer to keep them a secret. The part of this episode, that's about this 'secret sex' is very believable and well written, climaxing in Carrie confronting Mr. Big about her feeling like a possible 'secret sex'-partner.This is definitely one of the best episodes of the first season especially with development of Carrie and Mr.Big's relationship.
