Architect and amazing lover Jack, an ideal catch for princess Charlotte, whom she met at many disease benefits, strongly suggest a trio with another woman- the friends are divided if or how. Samantha does it with married 37-year old wine importer Ken Shear; when he tells his wife Ruth, she insists Sam participates in his fantasy, a threesome, to save her marriage. Carrie is surprised nearly everybody has trios, and startled Mr. Big is divorced, from publisher Barbara, who proves a great lady and even interested professionally in Carrie's on the spot invented novel theme -intolerable, as if she were in bed with her and Big- and tells he was the cheater! Irritated to be the only one not asked for a trio by a friend, Miranda answers a couple's threesome ad. Written by KGF Vissers

Charlotte's most daring episode (I guess)
5 April 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

This episode starts when we see Charlotte's new boyfriend, Jack, telling her his big fantasy: a threesome with her and another woman. The girls starts debating, telling that threesome now is the ''new sex of the millennium''. Samantha loves. Miranda did in college. Charlotte is decided to do it.Carrie starts thinking if we,human beings, were never meant to do it with only one person and that maybe threesomes were the relationship of the future. Being a fact or not,Samantha had the proposal to do again with Ken and his reserved wife, Ruth. Miranda starts going to a shrink when she feels left of side by Charlotte,Carrie and Samantha when neither of them choose her as partner from a distant threesome. Mr. Big reveals that he did a threesome with his ex wife Barbara. That's a surprise for Carrie,since she never knew he was already married.
