While Charlotte has a great sell in the gallery, especially to 'power lesbians', Samantha spots her hunky gym instructor Thor, and soon has him showering with her and enjoys his creative shaving of her pubic hair, but is this really original? Carrie sneaks out to her date with Mr. Big without her friends noticing. Miranda dates a pretentious documentary movie buff, but is less and less comfortable with his insistence to 'get in the mood' by watching porn while they make love. Charlotte, who found her current boyfriend kissing another in the gallery, decides to go out 'man-free' with the lesbians, but can she really fit in? Written by KGF Vissers

Carrie: Someone's definition of what constitutes cheating is in direct proportion to how much they themselves want to cheat.
Miranda: That's moral relativism.
Carrie: I prefer to think of it as quantum cheating.

Where does the line between cheating and not cheating stands? The four glamorous women from Manhattan discuss the topic while going through their own experiences. Charlotte is having an opening at her gallery, where she walks in on her date making out with another woman. She is intrigued by the "powerful lesbians", a group of well-dressed, successful lesbians with good shoes. She accepts an invitation of dinner from one of them and has a great time on a men-free environment (the G- Spot, the newest, hottest girls club in the city), but soon faces restrictions due to her heterosexuality. Meanwhile, Samantha discovers that her hot personal instructor (that shaved her privates in the shape of a lightening) is giving lightening to other woman. Miranda has a tough time competing with porn when she discovers her date can only have sex while watching porn. And Carrie has trouble revealing to her friends that she is back together – officially – with Mr. Big.

Sex And The City finally tackled about an issue that is vital in all relationships: cheating. We all cheat all the time in the sense that we have affairs outside our relationships but we have always had times when we have been dishonest with ourselves,our family and our friends.This episode points that out.

The episode I would say is somewhat unrealistic considering that the characters presented in it are far from what's happening in the real world.First of all,Miranda's boyfriend who could only have sex while watching porn.I don't think that's possible considering that the purpose of porn is sex in the imagination.But one would probably shut it off in the presence of a real woman.Also,I don't think that Charlotte would have a hard time finding another date that she would accept an invitation from a so-called "power lesbian" considering how gorgeous she is and she isn't even a lesbian nor a bisexual. Even though she was picky,she would still find someone and select among the many men that would probably show interest in her.But inspite of it,I still found the episode satisfying and entertaining.
