Three of the girls wrestle with the delicate question of what to tell or discretely leave unmentioned with loved ones. For Miranda, this means overcoming her aversion to explicit encouragement and dirty talk in bed; Carrie's blabbermouth causes a friend to divorce, then she invites Mr. Big to her birthday party; Samantha finally tells her sweet lover,after he talked her into couples counseling (which she hates), that she finds his manhood too small. Meanwhile, Charlotte tries a pedigree dog as a temporary substitute for the unfindable perfect fiancé. All find out the downsides of their choices. Written by KGF Vissers

The one that Charlotte has a dog
25 April 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Susan Sharon is Carrie's friend, and 2 years ago she married a terrible guy named Richard. who is always being rude with her and all of her friends. One day, when Carrie finally sees her, she sees a fight between Susan Sharon and her husband. Angry and fragile, when Susan calls her and asks if she should divorce from her husband, Carrie says yes, what makes her stay in doubt if she really should have said that.

Samantha finds hard to say to James that she hates the fact he has a small dick,avoiding to have sex with him almost all the time. But when he decides that they should go to a sex therapist, Samantha finally has the courage to say her reasons to James.

Charlotte,without any guy in mind, decided to have the perfect male: a dog that she called Henry.

Miranda has difficulties in speaking dirty language with her new date, who loves to do that.
